Hi, need to submit a 1000 words essay on the topic Comparison of the movie Jane Eyre and the book Jane Eyre.

Jane Eyre is an ardent and strong personality, the carrier of the spontaneous protest against any oppression. In the childhood she openly rises against the rich and hypocritical aunt and her severe, spoilt son. In thw shelter, in conversation with mild and patient Helen Burns, she expresses an idea of necessity of resistance: When we are struck at

it again.

I must dislike those who, whatever I do to please them, persist in disliking me. I must resist those who punish me unjustly (Bronte 1922). In the movie we see another picture: Jane wants to help her friend and let cut her hair to share her friend's fate. Here we see only Jane's high value of friendship, but we miss the real point the author of Jane Eyre wanted us to see: this is the difference between Jane and her friend Helen: Helen is mild, Jane is in contrast irreconcilable.

The spirit of the protest and independence is shown also in Jane's relations with her beloved. Rochester plays with Jane making her jealous. this is important moment showing Jane's feelings that is also missed in the movie. Jane is comparing her with beautiful rich lady and logically understands her imperfection. Here we see how strong and wise Jane is: she decides to forget her feelings, but than, after meeting Miss Ingram in the real life, she understands that not good-looking and poor she is much better than Blanch with all her perfection.

Exhausted by strange, freakish game conducted by her master, Jane is actually the first who speaks about the love - and that we see in the movie also. However, reading the book we feel stronger the difference of Jane and other women of her epoch. Jane's declaration ofy itthose who punish

conventionalities, nor even of mortal flesh" (Bronte 1922) Even in this scene the movie does not allow us to feel all the Jane's pride and independency.

Having become the bride of her beloved, at the top of happiness, Jane Eyre keeps self-control and sobriety. She is on guard of her independence. she is frightened with her possible transformation into the slave, into a toy of the husband. She continues to give lessons to his daughter, rejects luxurious gifts of the groom, persistently reminds him, that she is poor and not good-looking (yes, Jane Eyre is not beautiful, it is also was an innovation for the English Victorian novel). What do we see in the movie There is Jane's phrase that is understandable for those who read the book: "I am Jane Eyre" - the actress-Jane says to her beloved meaning that she is self-confident and independent. But the actress is too good-looking to express all the sense of this Jane's phrase. Here also there is no contrast between Jane and Blanch Ingram, because Jane seems to be not worse. To my mind, this was not right and the actress who played Jane must be not good-looking in order to show better
