As she explained to her sisters, Bronte wanted a character “as plain and as small as [herself]”. She hid behind the mask of Jane, an opinionated young woman, to tell her story, describe her life and share her unorthodox views. What makes this book timeless, even if the ideas themselves, of fate and free will, are no longer controversial, is that it urges the reader to question whatever is the conventional wisdom of their own time. A clear example of Bronte’s skepticism towards fate and religion appears in Chapter 9 when Jane is having a final conversation with her dying friend Helen.

“Your half-sister, Obliageli, will not understand me,” “But you can explain to her.” (Achebe, 1958, p.173) The author has indirectly indicated that Ezinma can understand what her half-sister is incapable of comprehending, especially when it comes to Okonkwo’s thoughts.

Again, this tells the reader why Okonkwo considerably appreciates Ezinma. In addition, Achebe directly states that Okonkwo never stopped regretting and hoping that Ezinma were a boy. “I wish she were a boy,” Not only this directly tells the reader the wish of Okonkwo, but the fact that he said it himself reinforces the feeling inside him rather than the narrator having to indirectly state in the passage that Okonkwo wants Ezinma to be a boy.
