    Emily was 17 and it was the first time she had left Haworth since leaving Cowan Bridge. She constantly punishes Helen Burns for her untidiness but fails to see Helen's substantial good points. Rochester exposes her and her mother's mercenary motivations when he puts out a rumour that he is far less wealthy than they imagine. He is an accomplished tradesman, owner of a Yorkshire mill, married and more handsome than his brother.

    Had they had an agreement with each other in real life, did they harbour hopes that they could one day be married? He put his fingers to his lips, walked out into the darkness, and shut the door quietly behind him It was one of the dullest evenings [Mrs Procter] had ever spent in her life Although they all displayed a talent for narrative, it was the younger ones whose pastime it became to develop them. When the discussion becomes general, a heated argument often follows.

    Its main themes include isolation, how such a condition can be borne, [28] and the internal conflict brought about by social repression of individual desire. Share this:.
