Jane Eyre/Feminist Theory - Day 6

I have become as comatosed with this reading.  I am currently expanding the essay to incorporate the misgivings and the inequality - all I can see is the first of the sunshine and I want to go out.  Instead, I have to glue my bum back down on the office chair and get chiseling.

*kicks chair*

2,146 words and I have now using the Rivers sister as in ideal alternative to the patriarchal rule.  This is going to be a long haul; I am probably about 3/4's done BEFORE I add critical opinion from credited academics and I am already approaching the maximum word count before I add the sprinkles.  I can see this heading upwards of 3,000 and I will then have to substantially pare back.

Bunked off for the rest of the day, came back and wrote notes in the areas where I have to expand a) Rochester's expecting Jane to compromise her position b) St John Rivers pressuring her into marriage c) the bag of cash that she inherits/torched house/dead first wife/maiming & blindness of Rochester (hey I don't care about spoilers - it's not like anyone reads this part of my journal).
