Mr. Rochester's Humor

JNEYR-YQQDTE

All of the following statements made by Rochester demonstrate that his words are not always meant to be taken seriously EXCEPT

A

"Miss Eyre, you are not so unsophisticated as Adèle: she demands a 'cadeau,' clamorously, the moment she sees me: you beat about the bush."

B

"I have examined Adèle, and find you have taken great pains with her: she is not bright, she has no talents; yet in a short time she has made much improvement."

C

"When you came on me in Hay Lane last night, I thought unaccountably of fairy tales, and had half a mind to demand whether you had bewitched my horse: I am not sure yet."

D

"You are very cool! No! What! a novice not worship her priest! That sounds blasphemous."

E

"It is nine o'clock: what are you about, Miss Eyre, to let Adèle sit up so long? Take her to bed."
