An Analysis of Female Characters in Jane Eyre from the Perspective of Social Ecology

Chapter 1 Introduction

    1. A Brief Introduction to Jane Eyre

Jane Eyre is a novel created by English writer Charlotte Bronte. It was first published in London, in 1847. The Penguin editors describe it as an “influential feminist text” because of its in-depth exploration of a strong female character’s feeling. It is a novel often considered ahead of its time due to its portrayal of the development of a thinking and passionate young woman who is individualistic, desiring for a full and highly moral life.

At all times and in all countries, a lot of scholars have analyzed Jane Eyre from various aspects. Most believe that it is a feminist novel, while many scholars believe that it is a religious novel. Of course, because Jane Eyre is very classical, they also like to analyze its structure, plot and symbolism.

With the change of times, some changes have taken place in people’s lives. The way we look at things will change with the change of the times. By comparing the similarities and differences between Jane Eyre and Mrs. Reed—who is Jane Eyre’s aunt, we can see the influence of the changing society on people. At present, many domestic and foreign researchers have carried out a deep analysis of Jane Eyre from different angles, but there is little research on Jane Eyre in social ecology that has also been used in many fields, such as sports, economy, environment, literature and so on.

to study the subject. Because before the author concealed her identity, it aroused the readers’ curiosity. Most people think that it is a romantic novel, but some people think that this is the existence of realism. Until the end of 1849, Charlotte Bronte announced her identity in the world, but people do not go back to the passion of Jane Eyre, and they want to study it further. ane Eyre is the first female image with the rebellious spirit, which is unprecedented in the United Kingdom. So people understood it as a banner of calling for feminism. Sandra Gilbert and Suan Gubar further discussed the feminism via mutual relationship between Jane Eyre and Bertha’s irrational behavior in the story “The Mad Woman in the Attic”. They argued that the crazy Bertha is the

other side of Jane Eyre’s oppression in the male centered Society. Then, Elaine Showalter demonstrates this point of view with psychoanalysis.

But in 1966, in the “The Accents Persuasion: Charlotte Bronte’s Novels”, Robert Martin believes that Jane Eyre is a religious novel. However, in 1970, in the book of “The English From Dickens to Lawrence”, Raymond Willams said Jane Eyre was a realistic work to challenge the existing social system. However, the Dominica writer Jean Rhys examined Jane Eyre from the perspective of postcolonial feminism. Virginla Woolf believes that Jane Eyre is a semi-autobiographical novel to reveal the character of the heart, unrelated to social problems. After that, critics have studied the structure, plot and symbolism of the novel.

Through the detailed analysis of the novel in detail, language, psychological description, Lu Yuling(1996), Zhao Haihong(2004), Yue Yue(2009) argued that Jane Eyre’s inferiority complex is the obedience and compromise to the patriarchal society, which is the failure of Jane Eyre. Hong Zhu (1979): “Jane Eyre–The Strongest Protest of the Petty Bourgeoisie”, Jane Eyre was incorporated into the ranks of the petty bourgeoisie. Yang Guiqin [3] expounded in “Jane Eyre from the Visual Interpretation of Literary Ethics”: At that time,
