To demonstrate that even though Jane keeps to herself most of the time she still wants to give and receive affection.


To emphasize Jane�s introversion; she would rather bestow her affection on an inanimate object than her relations.


To show that Mrs. Reed isn�t so bad after all since she instilled motherly instincts in Jane.


To draw comparisons between Jane and Mrs. Reed�s daughters.
