By gaining new allies and friends, finding a passion in art, and being able to express herself and confide in people, she becomes stronger. With this, the tone develops and changes while it slowly adapts when Melinda again talks about her closet saying, “I hang out in my refurbished closet. It is shaping up nicely… Maya Angelou’s picture watches me while I sweep and mop the floor, while I scrub the shelves, while I chase the spiders out of the corners. I do a little bit of work everyday… I bring a few books from home” (50).

She began at the Vermeer house, afraid to speak; Griet’s desire for kinship with Johannes, however, pressured her into altering a still life and ultimately gave her courage. “‘There needs to be some disorder in the scene, to contrast with her tranquility,”’ Griet says, to which Vermeer replies, ‘“I had not thought I would learn something from a maid,”’ (pgs. 135 - 136) Griet 's decision to rearrange the composition of the piece shows how her confidence has improved; she was able to be assertive and make the change, as well as to defend her decision when confronted by Vermeer. Johannes shows humbleness in his response to Griet; admitting he learned from her and he has some degree of respect for her artistic judgment. However, in using the word “maid” he emphasizes how the hierarchy still stands even though she has managed to prove herself to him.

I did the best I could, thankful for an bed to sleep on and food to put in my mouth.” From this quote, we could tell that Sass wants Koly to do more chores over again and Koly doesn’t mind but is not disobeying Sass because she has everything in the house that she needs so she is happy. It can be inferred that Sass is more pressuring and wants to take advantage of what Koly does and Koly doesn’t mind but doesn’t want to disobey Sass because she provides Koly with everything that she needs.

Thornfield was a completely different world for Jane. It was a major change physically and socially, as a governess she had more opportunities and duties to fulfill. Jane was not intimidated by what was expected of her, yet she was excited to see what the future at Thornfield had in store for her. The power of love was unavoidable for Jane, “The claims of her former love prove stronger than her sense of duty to that honorable but emotionally shallow Rivers” (Moss 3). Rochester was a major influence on Jane as this was a critical time she was maturing, yet she did not let him get in the way of her work.

Martha is directly characterized as someone who cannot leave things “half done”, and through this she is able to understand the unkempt nature of the house, and other subtle clues that show Minnie’s state of mind.
