One being the caring and loyal friend and the other one being the controlling and somewhat insecure girl in search for self-affirmation with only herself in mind which is the most common way we get to view her throughout the novel.

But this type of behavior is somewhat rare yet very enjoyable when it does show since you get to experience a side of her that reveals her ability to be a warm and kind person.

Natali Petriashvili EN 310 09.03.16 Jane Eyre and Huckleberry Finn as Coming of Age Novels Since ancient history, women have been labeled as gatherers, cooks, nurses, governesses, maids, or, simply, housewives.
