Description:

This paper considers the way in which Charlotte Bronte's autobiographical details allow for a feminist message in her novel, "Jane Eyre." The paper contends that Jane's true ambition is to overcome the repression of the male-dominated society of the 19th Century.

From the Paper:

"In many ways Charlotte Bronte's "Jane Eyre" may be read as one of the earliest feminist texts in English literature. While Bronte employs many of the standard elements of the Gothic novel, it is clear that her true ambition is in her depiction of the title character, a woman who endures great trials in order to overcome repression in the male-dominated society of the nineteenth century."
