RE: Who read Jane Eyre help me please: How does Jane feel
3. How does Jane explain her own restlessness?
Jane is frequently restless and collects her thoughts while pacing Thornfield’s top-story passageway. A restlessness exists in Jane’s nature that causes her pain. Walking along the corridor of the third story of the house is her only way of easing this discomfort. Yearning for a life of excitement, variety, and intellectual stimulation, Jane isn’t satisfied with the monotony of Mrs. Fairfax or the youthful simplicity of Adèle. In consequence, Jane spends much time within her own imagination, opening her inward ear to “a tale my imagination created, and narrated continuously; quickened with all incident, life, fire, feeling, that I desired and had not in my actual existence.”
