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?


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


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


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


He has allowed self-pity to destroy his life.


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