Where as Jane, like any Victorian woman, consistently conceals her passion for the expectations of the time period, Mr. Rochester flourishes his ego with the exposure of his passion. Moreover, Brontё displays how Mr. Rochester begins to grasp his role as a male in the Victorian Era when he learns to free his expression of his passion and devotion. Mr. Rochester wishes for the promise by Jane “‘say nothing about it’” (Brontё 179). Evidently, Brontё indicates Mr. Rochester’s fear of being exposed for the passion he senses from someone like the past, beautiful Bertha. Furthermore, Mr. Rochester’s passion draws insecurity for thinking about the mad woman he keeps hidden away, yet Brontё implies Jane being the shining light to a new passion.

Shakespeare diligently crafted such a character to both contrasts the corruption in the play with a pure soul as well as allow the reader to confide in the emotional anguish of such a sweet character such as Ophelia. Through the development of Ophelia through the play, the notion of love is beautifully dismantled before the reader’s eyes; telling a lesson of how false love can end tragically.
