Jane Eyre - Penniless and in Pain

Being an orphan and poor can make someone stronger. In Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, Jane is an orphan, penniless and in pain, but full of courage in spirit. Jane does not have a close relationship with her cousins because she is poor and is an orphan. She has very little right to express herself in front of her relatives because they take that right away from her. Jane makes her way through all obstacles by persevering. Jane Eyre does not get along with her cousins, is not allowed to express her feelings, and she perseveres and endures through her troubles.

Jane Eyre's parents died when she is very young. She lives with her relatives, whether she likes or not. Unfortunately, she does not get along well with her relatives. Jane's relatives tell her that she has no money and she is useless.

She is disliked by all of her cousins. When Jane attempts to get a book, her cousin says, "You have no business to take our books: You are a dependent, mama says: You have no money." (10. 4~6).
