A Shocking Tale

JNEYR-WEY1V9

When Mr. Rochester reveals his history with Céline Varens to Jane, he remarks,

And, Miss Eyre, so much was I flattered by this preference of the Gallic sylph for her British gnome, that I installed her in a hotel; gave her a complete establishment of servants, a carriage, cashmeres, diamonds, dentelles, &c.

What surprises Jane most about this confession?

A

Rochester must possess insecurities if flattery is enough to win him over.

B

Rochester's readiness to trust Jane with such personal information.

C

How easily Rochester gives in to his lustful passions.

D

That Adèle's presence at Thornfield could be the result of such a shocking backstory.

E

Rochester's eagerness to impress Céline is so far out of his character.
