Jane Eyre 26
We discussed chapter 26 as a turning point in the novel. We looked back upon the earlier Thornfield chapters through 26 and investigated how the events of 26 change (and in many cases confirm) what we thought about characters, events, and themes. We also thought about what might happen next, keeping in mind that Jane Eyre is a bildungsroman: where might Jane's identity development and relationship with the social order be headed in the subsequent chapters?
