If you don’t be brave and protect yourself from other people, no one else will. Trying to hold back while someone else is taunting you can be petrifying. The lyric “It’s time for me to take it” it best tells the listener what her song is about because it means that it’s time for her to take control and be more self-assuring of herself to let others know that she isn’t weak and that she won’t hide her true self from those who don’t accept her for being herself. Letting someone else define who you are is not how you should really be. Be the person you want to be and let others envy you for being a confident girl or

She describes Franklin’s sexual attraction to Jacques Mehring.

Christina Williams makes an insightful argument that the role of identity overlays the feminist themes of the novel. Williams begins by arguing that Edna never lets herself break free of a man’s influence, nor does she ever let the idea of love go. While Edna’s motivation is in part due to her wish to follow her artistic passion, the concern that eventually leads to her death is of Robert, her lover. Edna begins and ends the novel in the same passive nature that she begins the novel; thus, it would make an unsuccessful feminist work. Williams states that Edna’s awakening is in large part due to natural causes, listing her connection to the sea as an example.

Therefore, the novel is focused on Jane’s journey to balancing the conflicts in order to become content as well as learning how to gain love without sacrificing her dignity in the process. In contrast, the film shows no basis of contrast between St John and Rochester and consequently excludes Jane’s development as a human being as the film is solely focused on her affair with
