In this frightening room, Jane thinks she sees her uncle 's ghost and begs to be set free. Her Aunt Reed refuses, insisting Jane remain in her prison until she learns complete submissiveness (Brontë & Dunn 13-20).
However, amidst all these, she grows in strength and successful at school, after which she becomes a governess. The progression of Jane continues until she falls into a love affair with Edward who later deceives her. Within the foreplays of weaknesses, emotional distress, and downgraded morale, she goes to Marsh End, where she regains her strength, purpose, and zeal in spirituality as well as her own determination and strength.
