1. Jane was extremely happy that Rochester proposed to her, and yet she still felt uneasy about her upcoming marriage. Jane becomes discomforted when Rochester begins to spoil her with glorious things: “The more he bought me, the more my cheek burned with a sense of annoyance and degradation” (309). Why do you think Jane felt this way?
2. Jane has strange dreams leading up to her wedding. She tells Rochester, “I dreamt another dream…that Thornfield Hall was a dreary ruin, the retreat of bats and owls” (325). What do you think is the significance of her dreams and what do they represent? How does Bronte create a feeling of gloom and pending disaster in these chapters?
