Chat to John Reed
John, as Jane Eyre’s cousin, you represent a source of cruelty and oppression in her early life. Can you reflect on the motivations behind your treatment of Jane and the factors contributing to your behaviour?
How do you perceive the impact of your actions on Jane’s character development and resilience?
Were there any moments of realization or regret when you recognized the consequences of your mistreatment towards Jane?
Looking back, do you believe your upbringing or external influences played a role in shaping your behaviour towards Jane and others?
If given the opportunity, would you have done anything differently in your interactions with Jane, and have you experienced any personal growth or change since your childhood encounters with her?
