Jane's Second Painting

JNEYR-COSWEJ

Jane describes the woman she depicted in her second painting from Lowood, explaining:

The dim forehead was crowned with a star; the lineaments below were seen as through the suffusion of vapour; the eyes shone dark and wild; the hair streamed shadowy, like a beamless cloud torn by storm or by electric travail.

A

the woman's dark and stormy surroundings symbolize Jane's future trials.

B

the supernatural elements of the painting highlight the Gothic nature of the text.

C

the star on the woman's forehead symbolizes the light Jane must use to help Rochester.

D

the woman's wildness foreshadows Bertha's significance in Jane's future.

E

the woman's unsettling presence foreshadows Blanche Ingram's role in the novel.
