When Jane speaks to the former Thornfield Hall employee about Mr. Rochester, the man states:

He would not cross the door-stones of the house, except at night, when he walked just like a ghost about the grounds and in the orchard as if he had lost his senses-- which it is my opinion he had; for a more spirited, bolder, keener gentleman than he was before that midge of a governess crossed him, you never saw, ma'am.

What does this news reveal about Rochester?

A

Even Jane's return will not be enough to return Rochester to his former state.

B

The frequent highs and lows in his disposition would not be conducive to marriage, anyway.

C

He understands that a life of solitude is a just punishment for decieving Jane.

D

He has allowed self-pity to destroy his life.

E

He truly did mold his future around Jane and has given up hope without her.
