The search for freedom in Charlotte Brontes Jane Eyre
2003 (English)Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this essay is to investigate the search for freedom in Charlotte Brontë´s Jane Eyre, or, more precisely, the protagonist Jane Eyre´s search for freedom and the reasons for her search. For Jane freedom without human love is an impossibility.Throughout the novel she is forced to escape from a series of "prisons" in order to find freedom. In these "prisons" Jane is deprived of love without which her freedom cannot be attained. The lack of love leads to feelings of being trapped and these feelings follow her constantly through her childhood and early adult life. She is locked in, both in her role as a woman and as a human being. At the same time she is locked out by society and by other human beings because she happens to be an orphan and she is poor. Her search for freedom makes her question herself and her own search. It is not until she finds herself and her own definition of freedom that she can feel free.
