“…Amen; even so, come, Lord Jesus!” (Bronte 433). Forty years have passed since Rochester and I have first started our own journey as husband and wife, and ten years since he passed towards the beyond life. Seven years after our first son, Edward Jr. was born, Mary came into our life. She was a beautiful little girl with light hair and green eyes. She was the princess of the house and that is how everyone treated her. I tried to make Adele help me to raise the children while I took care of their father since his condition started to deteriorate. My cousins, Diana and Mary moved into our new house along with their husbands and children. By that time Edward grew sicker and blinder while Adele never found time to care for Edward Jr. and Mary…show more content…
was fifteen and little Mary was ten when their father passed away. No words could be described as to what I was feeling when I have lost him.

One of the gothic elements I have used is the women in distress. Jane seemed to be lonely when Edward died and even terrified as of what could happen next in her life. She knew that her children will soon leave and have their time in life and spend less and less time with her and that she would just simply stay inside and be alone.

At the end, Jane seems to be happy that she will soon be able to be to join Edward. The other gothic element is the vocabulary used. Tears, terror, panic and even scared are the words that Jane describes her feelings and thoughts about Edward when he passed away. These words might show that Jane has fear of living by herself from now on even though she knows that at a point in her life she will be reunited with
