“The novel has a structure that allows us to explore the inner landscape in terms of five places of the heart....Each of the houses is a metaphor...of a condition of the private heart.”--Mark Kinkead, “The Place of Love in Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights,” 1970

Due Date: TBA
FORMAT: Divide the page into two columns. On the left side include 3 quotes from the novel; on the right side write your response of 100 words minimum. You will have a total of 15 quotes and 5 responses.
1. You should create a SEPARATE entry for each of the 5 chief settings of the novel: Gateshead, Lowood, Thornfield Hall, Moor House/Marsh End, and Ferndean. At the top of each entry, write the name of the setting in the center.
2. For each entry on the left side copy 3 (THREE) passages specifically about the physical setting (outer and/or inner appearance), documented with Ch. and p. #.
3. Then on the right side explain in one response HOW these settings reflect that stage in Jane’s life. Consider: season(s) associated with the setting, colors, atmosphere, images/symbols, lessons learned, etc.
90 - 100 = These dialectics will exhibit apt and precise selections of passages and will provide convincing explanations of Bronte’s settings reflecting Jane’s life stages. The writing will demonstrate consistent control over the elements of effective composition.
