In the novel Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë, Jane has gone through experiences and some which let her down in a few ways. Jane also has people who impact her which hinder her future. She has been through so much and sometimes things and good sometimes they’re bad. Jane’s life has really changed and she experiences many things
When Bertha Rochester is first introduced in the novel she is much of a mystery. Her name isn’t stated and it isn’t really clear if she is the one causing trouble. Jane has assumptions of who might be committing all these problems. Bertha tries to kill Mr. Rochester by setting the curtain around his bed on fire. Jane is hearing things inside her room and wished she kept her candle on so she could see. Jane says, “This was a demoniac laugh-low, suppressed, and deep-uttered, as it seemed, at the very keyhole of my chamber door. The head of my bed was near the door and, I thought at first the goblin-laughter stood at my beside-or rather crouched by my pillow: but I rose, looked around and could see nothing; while, as I gazed, the unnatural sound was reiterated: and I knew it came from behind the panels. My first impulse was to rise and fasten the bolt; and my next again to cry out, who is there?” (155) Jane stated that “Something gurgled and moaned. Ere long, steps retreated up to the gallery toward the third-story staircase: a door had lately been made to shut in that staircase; I heard it open and close and all was still.
Jane was going to ask Mrs. Fairfax about the sounds she was hearing but then she heard a door. She also began to smell smoke and she sees that Mr. Rochester’s door is open. The curtains around his bed are on fire and he’s fast asleep. Jane tries to wake him but the smoke has kept him in a deep sleep. Jane then takes the bucket of water and throws it on him so he can wake up. His response to having water thrown on him was, “Is there a flood?” Since Jane was on her way to ask someone something, she was able to save Mr. Rochester’s life. Bertha obviously wanted to kill him and her attempt failed.
On the day of Jane and Mr. Rochester’s wedding things didn’t go as planned. They were expecting to get married and live their lives, but things took a turn and went from good to bad. When Jane and Mr. Rochester are at their wedding, two men arrive telling them they cannot get married. Mr. Briggs the attorney says, “I affirm and can prove that on the 20th October, A.D, Edward Fairfax Rochester, of Thornfield Hall, in the county of -, and of Ferndean Manor, in –shire, England, was married to my sister, Bertha Antonietta Mason, daughter of Jonas Mason, merchant, and of Antonietta Mason, his wife, a Creole, at – Church, Spanish Town, Jamaica.
