Jane Eyre XXXI -- chapter 30: DEPARTURE THE FOURTH

  1. What is Mr. St. John Rivers' weight and burden that creep up in his sermons?
  2. I hear Jane's words when Mr. Rivers speaks of the philosophy of life.
  3. Is there a point to writing in the Rivers' mother's uncle's death (aside from permitting me an excellent opportunity for ridiculous apastrophic indulgence)?
  4. Moorland.

  1. 1. I think that it would be hard for me to answer this one now that I've finished the book. Arg.
    3. I think that it reveals something fundamentally petty about the entire family that they are still considering family rivalries/not all that upset at the news of his death.

  2. 3 -- That pettiness is a strange contrast against their wide-open hands to Jane. Very giving, but simultaneously grudging?

  3. Yes, I suppose. Maybe their resentment toward certain people allows them to love people whom they do like more. That's not my approach to people, but if it works for them...
