jane and rochester
Jane and Rochester

Initial Meeting as Strangers (The Felled Horse Incident):

  • “Had he been a handsome, heroic-looking young gentleman, I should not have dared to stand thus questioning him against his will, and offering my services unasked” (142).
  • “If even this stranger had smiled and been good-humoured to me when I addressed him…I should have gone on my way…but the frown, the roughness of the traveler set me at my ease” (142).
  • Rochester: “now make haste with the letter to Hay, and return as fast as you can” (144).
  • “it marked with change one single hour of monotonous life…The new face…was like a new picture…and it was dissimilar to all the others…firstly, because it was masculine; and, secondly, because it was dark, strong, and stern. I had it sill before me when I entered Hay…I saw it as I walked fast downhill all the way home” (144-145).

Jane and Rochester

Initial Meeting at Thornfield Hall:

  • “there was something in the forced stiff bow, in the impatient yet formal tone, which seemed further to express, ‘What the deuce is it to me whether Miss Eyre be there or not?’… I sat down quite disembarrassed. A reception of finished politeness would probably have confused me…I felt interested to see how he would go on” (151).
  • Rochester: “‘I have examined Adele, and find you have taken great pains with her…in a short time she has made much improvement’” (152).
  • Rochester: “‘you have the look of another world…When you came on me in Hay Lane last night, I thought unaccountably of fairy tales, and had half a mind to demand whether you had bewitched my horse’” (153).
  • Rochester: “‘Enough!’…’You play a little, I see; like any other English schoolgirl; perhaps rather better than some, but not well’” (155).
  • Rochester: “I dare say you did exist in a kind of artist’s dreamland while you blend and arranged these strange tints” (158).
  • “he is very changeful and abrupt” (159).

“Well did I remember Mrs. Reed’s face, and I eagerly sought the familiar image. It is a happy thing that time quells the longings of vengeance and hushes the promptings of rage and aversion. I had left this woman in bitterness and hate, and I came back to her now with no other emotion than a sort of ruth for her great sufferings, and a strong yearning to forget and forgive all injuries—to be reconciled and clasp hands in amity.” (291)
