and this piece of shit is actually hailed as being “feminist” but what the fuck no.
Jane leaves after finding out about Rochester’s marriage, yeah great A+ good job. But then she goes and lets St John walk all over her and control everything, the only reason she doesn’t give in to marrying the wanker is because she “hear’s Rochester’s voice” (which, fucking amazing story telling there, well done, top marks) and goes back to the guy that lied to her for the entire time they’d known each other. And then it’s like “but she was an independent woman! They met as equals!” except no, because she marries him. And this was what, 1850? Everything she owned became his. She gave up all rights to anything and everything. Woo! Feminist literature! A dude manipulates and control you but it’s okay because it’s done for love!
