This paper compares "Jane Eyre" and "Pride and Prejudice" as a way to explore the social customs of Victorian England. Specifically, these two novels express the conflicts of love and passion with the social rules for courtship and marriage. Both novels portray how social expectations of behavior contradict the personal emotions of relationships and how these produce great emotional struggles that must be reconciled. In an era where passion and marriage are not enabled in the social sphere of Victorian customs, love becomes a conflict.
