However, Queen Catherine allegedly was the one who ordered the assassination in an attempt to get her husband the king get involved in a civil war outbreak. In order to avenge this hit the king had thought was placed by the Duke and he had placed an order to slaughter the duke’s officials as well as the Huguenots. The bloodshed went on for days as victims fled to save their lives. Giovanni depicts a vivid scene of blood thirsty
She states, “She had a fine person, many brilliant attainments; but her mind was poor, her heart barren by nature” (Brontë 1.239). She describes Miss Ingram as beautiful but a shallow person with no depth. Along with Jane, Mr. Rochester seems to see this and her true aspiration of only marrying him for his money. On the other hand, Jane’s wittiness and sharp responses to Mr. Rochester confusing comments enraptures Mr. Rochester. Mrs. Reed and her children had always treated Jane with disrespect; but when Mrs. Reed is dying Jane forgets her harsh treatment and stays with her until she died.
Both Dora and Jane are quiet young when they first encounter some kind of hysteria, or symptoms of hysteria. In Jane’s case her first encounter would we the incident at the Red Room (Bronte 12). The Red Room incident is perhaps most important in establishing the rigid structure of patriarchy because we see that the image that appears before her in the ghostly pale moonlight as she imagines is that of her dead uncle, Mr. Reed (Bronte 12). We see earlier in the story that Jane is being punished by Aunt, for “misbehaving” with her cousin John (Bronte 10). The idea that her aunt would lock her away in the Red Room, the place where her husband had lain before his death, shows us what kind of fear her aunt wants to invoke in the child.
Though Heathcliff and Catherine become the best of friends, Hindley does not take kindly to Heathcliff becoming part of the family. When Mr. and Mrs. Earnshaw die, Hindley takes over Wuthering Heights and makes Heathcliff a servant, degrading Heathcliff. Meanwhile, even though she truly loves him, Catherine sees Heathcliff as beneath her in society and social class. When Catherine meets Edgar she is impressed with his manners and wealth is then promised to be married to Edgar. It's hard to settle such an intense love with the choice she makes, but somehow she is able to work out the reasoning in her head; “I've no business to marry Edgar Linton than I have to be in heaven; and if the wicked man in there not brought Heathcliff so low, I shouldn't have thought of it.
Lydia is outspoken and completely self-absorbed, even though she is the youngest of the sisters, which foreshadows the trouble she will get into later on in the story. This contrasts hugely with Elizabeth, who is responsible, grounded and far more reserved. This is shown after the ball at Netherfield, when Jane is displaying her gratification of the admiration she received, and Lizzie “felt Jane’s pleasure” – although Elizabeth is not directly concerned with finding a suitable husband, she is able to empathise with Jane. The main plot is that of Elizabeth and Darcy – there were many prejudices between the two; without Darcy stepping in and forcing Wickham to marry Lydia, they would have remained apart. Lydia is incapable of seeing the shame she brings on the family through running away to be married, as shown in her letter to Harriet; “I can hardly write for laughing.” Her thoughtless attitude to marriage is highlighted here – although she is motivated by love, she hasn’t thought about the consequences of what she’s doing.
She often presents a playful good-natured impertinence that does not offend. Early in the novel she is depicted as being personally proud of her mental quickness and her acuity in judging the social behaviour and intentions of others. Of her family, Elizabeth is her father's favourite, described by him as having "something more of quickness than her sisters". In contrast, she is the least dear to her mother, especially after Elizabeth refuses a marriage proposal from Mr. Collins. Elizabeth is also often upset and embarrassed by the behaviour of her mother and of her younger sisters.
By the end, they had each faced individual hardships and morphed into completely different people. Due to Estella being raised by Miss Havisham to torment the hearts of men, she was deliberately cruel to Pip. Estella belittled him, making Pip feel like a disgraceful “common labouring boy” not worthy of her presence. Pip commented on his first meeting of Estella, saying “she was as scornful of me as if she had been one-and-twenty, and a queen,” expressing that she was quite vicious and pitiless towards him. This practice resulted in Pip’s deepest love towards her.
When he has his very first trip to Miss Havisham's home he meets her adopted daughter Estella. From the beginning of their meeting Estella is cruel, treating Pip like he is not worth her time or even anyones. Even with the way that Estella treats Pip he's drawn to her from the start, thinking she is very beautiful and very callous at the same time. Pip thinks that “She seemed much older than I, of course, being a girl, and beautiful and self-possessed; and she was as scornful of me as if she had been one-and-twenty, and a queen.” (45) Pip has to spend time with Estella, playing whatever games that Miss Havisham request of them, he is okay with this because even with all the insults she gives him, he simply enjoys her company. Though he very much so is
Good Night, Mister Tom is written in omniscient third person point of view. The main character is a thin young boy named William who is physically and emotionally abused by his violent mother. Everyone calls him Willie with the exception of Willie's friend Zacharias Wrench who chooses to call him 'Will' because he thinks it's more dignified. He is also friends with other village children:George an remember. He arrives at Mr Tom's house thinly clad, underfed and covered with painful bruises, and believing he is full of sin, as he has been brought up by a mother who regularly lashed him with a belt and was extremely religious, with strong opinions such as that people who copy go to hell when they die.
Due to his background teachers regarded him as a hopeless cause because his difficulty in using Received Pronunciation which contrasts against Harrison's attitude towards language and that there is a variety of dialect within the English language which everyone uses to convey a conversation with one another. When Harrison was young he was overawed by his "posh" teacher who embarrassed him resulting in him feeling demeaned and docile. The first section is in the form of a memory emphasised through the embedded dialogue of the teacher showing how he is undermined as the teacher wants to make sure their "glorious heritage" is not "done to death" suggesting that teacher is aiming to undermine Harrison by discouraging him from reading the important roles. Similarly, in "Bringing Up", he emphasises his separation from his mother as she disgusted over him using taboo language. The use of embedded dialogue implies the different view on the Leeds accent emphasised in his mother being disgusted with him and believes he was not "brought up to write such mucky books!"
