Jane Eyre‘ as a Bildungsroman

“I am not an angel,’ I asserted; ‘and I will not be one till I die: I will be myself. Mr. Rochester, you must neither expect nor exact anything celestial of me – for you will not get it, any more than I shall get it of you: which I do not at all anticipate”.

She is a woman ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ with her own ideas๐Ÿ’ก, courageous enough to say it aloud ๐Ÿ”Š, who ever it is, even to the man she loves ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€โค๏ธโ€๐Ÿ‘จ.
