1. Does Jane enjoy being a governess? Or did she use the occupation as a means to gain more freedom? Is there another reason she likes teaching? Is she willing to stay now that she knows Mrs. Fairfax is “a placid-tempered, kind-natured women” (pg. 109) instead of another Mrs. Reed?
2. What is it about Mr. Rochester that attracts Jane when she plainly states that she doesn’t find him handsome when he asks her, “Do you find me handsome?” (pg. 132)? How does Jane’s view that “beauty is of little consequence” (pg 132) affect Mr. Rochester? What is it about their personalities that attract them to each other as well as the readers?
3. How has their relationship between Jane and Mr. Rochester change when he told her that she “did not strike delight to my very inmost heart for nothing” (pg. 152)? How will Jane do Mr.Rochester some “good in some way” (pg 152)? What is it that he’s hoping she will give him?
