I was living with I liked to look at the pictures in the big books from the library there.
On the other has received in the past few decades. In other words, it is simply a matter ment in that misnamed space. Is Bertha is the madwoman in the attic, and close reading naive reading in another guise? Is the diference between third language that we normally dismiss as un- story and attic not simply a semantic one? All readers minds as we read. If it is so easy for conscious that unfolded throughout the nine- us to misread something as basic as where a teenth century. Clearly we are capable of skip- with depth hermeneutics: the novel, as I will ping over anything.
I was now on a level with the crow A lover inds his mistress asleep on a mossy colony, and could see into their nests. Leaning bank; he wishes to catch a glimpse of her fair over the battlements and looking far down, I face without waking her. How he suddenly and vehemently clasps in both arms the form he dare not, a moment Jane is at pains to describe the uneventful since, touch with his finger!
How he calls part of the journey from third story to roof aloud a name, and drops his burden, and that involves traversing the attic. As if one gazes on it wildly! He thought his love mention of a nondescript space were not slept sweetly: he inds she is stone dead. I, by dint of groping, found the outlet from the hearth the symbol of domestic comfort par attic, and proceeded to descend the narrow excellence that ironically furnishes the de- garret staircase. I lingered in the long pas- structive agent in the form of ire.

But let us place of employment, the two women spend leave them all there for a moment and return some time exploring the third story, which irst to the attic and the roof, as Jane repeat- Jane describes in detail and about which she edly does throughout her early days at horn- formulates several immediate philosophical ield Hall. Her description of the precipitous Kreisel passage to the leads is, naturally enough, was to walk along the corridor of the third vertical in orientation.

I climbed the three ield, wide as a park, dotted with its ancient staircases, raised the trap-door of the attic, timber; the wood, dun and sere, divided by and having reached the leads, looked out a path visibly overgrown, greener with moss afar over sequestered ield and hill, and along than the trees were with foliage; the church at dim sky-line. I desired with pearly white.
Then my sole relief during these sessions As John Kucich reminds imaginings on the third loor. This compartmental- second loor and on the third. It thus underscores the inextricability roof and horizon and the putatively cramped of narration and memory in the novel: Jane interior space of the long, narrow passage- might dream on the second floor, but only way.

In a re- ness in the midst of emblems of memory. As I words, I would point out that they also have a have already discussed, we see these negative psychological valence that transcends gender. Just as memory is imaginary as a universal apprehension of loss. I was transported in thought to the scenes of childhood: I dreamt I lay in If the third loor is the ield of the sym- the red-room at Gateshead; that the night was bolic, of narrative, and of memory, the roof dark, and my mind impressed with strange is the realm of the imaginary.
It is where Jane fears. The roof is the realm to pause in the centre of the obscured ceiling. I watched her come—watched with the strangest anticipation; as though some responsibilities and duties in the household.
Bronte, unlike most contemporary children's writers, imagined at least some children as having intense and complicated inner feelings which could not be expressed within the genteel environment. Such a child, like Jane, having to exist without love and without understanding or acceptance in a place like Gateshead, might naturally have hostile feelings.
Too timid and powerless to try to express them, except under immense pressure, this child might well appear nasty and withdrawn, unloving instead of unloved. The contrast between Jane's usual sullen appearance and her unexpectedly violent outburst causes her to be thought of as evil; the Reed family and their servants connect her general unresponsiveness with some kind of intrinsic moral flaw, although they give her nothing to respond to positively.
This lack of insight into reasons for a child's failure to express affection is shared by the Reed family and the majority of children's writers of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. All too often, these writers treat the child's loving behavior as a commodity which he can exchange for parental approval; certainly, the visible appearance of this behavior seems more important than whether it is truly felt, because such writers assume that a normal, virtuous child will feel and ought to feel love for his or her guardians.
Bronte's sympathetic analysis of Jane's character implies a rejection of this attitude towards the child, held by many of her contemporaries who wrote for children. We had been wandering, indeed, in the leafless shrubbery an hour in the morning; but since dinner Mrs.
Reed, when there was no company, dined early the cold winter wind had brought with it clouds so sombre, and a rain so penetrating, that further out-door exercise was now out of the question. I was glad of it: I never liked long walks, especially on chilly afternoons: The said Eliza, John, and Georgiana were now clustered round their mama in the drawing-room: Be seated somewhere; and until you can speak pleasantly, remain silent. It contained a bookcase: I soon possessed myself of a volume, taking care that it should be one stored with pictures.
I mounted into the window-seat: Folds of scarlet drapery shut in my view to the right hand; to the left were the clear panes of glass, protecting, but not separating me from the drear November day. At intervals, while turning over the leaves of my book, I studied the aspect of that winter afternoon.
