And while Jane Eyre is not without its problems, I gotta say, Jane all the way. Catherine is capricious and inconsistent; she marries Edgar, her cousin, because of his social status, but she remains in love with Heathcliff throughout her whole life. Will I not guard, and cherish, and solace her? That is all I wanted to say on the matter. Heathcliff, on the other hand, is not a gentleman in anyway. And both have 'bad boy' Byronic heroes, Heathcliff and Rochester.
For Jane, religion helps curb passions, and it spurs one on to worldly achievements. Or, didn't want to finish it, but did. Byronic Heroes Both Heathcliff, the hero of Wuthering Heights, and Rochester, Jane's love interest in Jane Eyre, have been identified as Byronic heroes. Two fine points and something to think about. I showed it to high-school students, and even they found it ridiculous.
Both have elements of the Gothic novel and a Byronic hero. Each setting is dominated by different tone. In a way, you could say that the difference in approaches is, at least partially, due to the difference between the sisters themselves. Since he's ill and weak, he dies young. Healthcliff is a much more complex character than any I have read or watched in movies. Well she does work most of her life in order to be independent from others and when she turns rich it is not so very out blue.
The aura or unity that surrounds the conclusions is remarkable given the conflicts that fracture the novels Berlinger 185. Each novel was written in the romantic era and the use of an omniscient narrator in 'Jane Eyre' allows Charlotte Bronte to subtly criticise the values of the society at the time whilst also portraying Jane as a heroine with a mature, forward thinking mind. Both the authors associate setting to the characters in the story. She has moved beyond the walls and can be the person that she truly is. I love both books, and read them with pleasure, and I cannot decide which I liked best. One of the main differences is the women in the stories and how they act. Religion plays an important part in Wuthering Heights in a number of ways, though formal religion seems to remain in the background.
She marries Linton and then falls in love with Hareton. Here, he meets his landlord, Heathcliff, a very wealthy man who lives 4 miles away in the manor called Wuthering Heights. At Gateshead, the tone is passionate, superstitious, and wild. I know a lot of people here: Suzie, Aquileana, Norah, Ali… 2. Gothic novels are known for their spooky settings-- usually in isolated old castles or grand houses-- their dark and moody tone, and hidden, often taboo secrets. Well, this would be all.
Also in chapter two, the description of the house is revealed and the setting and the kind of atmosphere which is expected from such a household. Both books contain elements of the Gothic novel, especially in their creepy, isolated locations. But I also watch Jane Eyre more than I read it. Charlotte was a fighter, energic, with high principles, and Emily was introvert, she liked to read a lot and to meditate. He marries her out of pure spite as Edgar would not approve of it. To finally answer the question, to be perfectly honest, my reasoning is so lame and stupid. Come on, Bulgarians rated The Lord of the Rings as their most favorite book and I doubt even half of the people have read it; they just voted for it because of the movie.
Do you see her point? Surprisingly, the novel doesn't end with Catherine's death but continues to explore Heathcliff's change afterwards and the destiny of their children. The novel's are both stories of passionate, uncontrollable love and stress the importance of imagination and heightened emotion, perhaps with 'Wuthering Heights' presenting a sense of realism in respect to the theme of love and 'Jane Eyre' a more, unconventional, idealised 'fantasy' of love. However, I have to write for scholl, an essay about love in these two books, so people, I need your opinions. It would also be interesting to argue who deserved love more Jane or Cathy? People sometimes get them mixed up. I like to use my imagination personally.
Both Wuthering Heights and Thrushcross Grange are totally isolated by the outside world for they are surrounded by miles and miles of wild, uncontrollable, and even dangerous moors. I was constantly left in a miserable mood because of how awful the characters were. Wuthering Heights written by Emily Bronte and Great Expectations by Charles Dickens are two examples of great stories. I tried to find all the episodes and wasn't able to, and then in oct or sept of 2012 some dumb copyright law took it all off of youtube. However the differences in love seems to be in their value, the all consuming, passionate nature of love is seen in both Heathcliff and Cathy and Jane and Edward in my opinion, just in Wuthering Heights to more of an extent. But actually that explanation is not so clearcut. I even love the crazy bit toward the end when Jane is staying with St.
I was glad when you said that you find Austen's books sometimes naive or too optimistic. No other book has surprised me and made me feel that way. Jane Eyre very much reminded me of a worse version of Cinderella. Lord knows I can't stand the book, but it certainly is packed full with vivid atmosphere, gothic psychological horror, desperate passion and, in Heathcliff, the ultimate Byronic Asshat Hero. The Brontes and Austen grew up in different time eras, social classes, and locations and wrote about vastly different things in a different fashion. Its my second fav film after jane eyre.
I must add that I did so more actively than she did. Their deside of revenge is the continuos seek of the change of their lives, the desire to show people who treated them badly that they're better than them. Authors write about what they know. In my country this happens with Wuthering Heights. And its central lovers, Catherine and Heathcliff, are also full of family secrets that imperil their romance.
