Jane symbolically was a baby bird that just wanted to fly. She was a little girl that was caged and abused in her Aunt’s house. When she finally was set free and went to a boarding school only to again be locked away and terrorized for the smallest mistakes. As Jane had accidentally dropped a plate a woman stated “’this is a sad, a melancholy occasion; for it becomes my duty to warn you, that this girl, who might be one of God’s own lambs, is a little castaway:’” (Bronte 50) Jane was punished for a mistake that can only be blamed by her clumsiness. Jane was set free after several years to finally live the life she wanted and deserved, to only fall in love with a man trapping her in his commands. “I have told you, reader, that I had learnt to love Mr. Rochester: I could not unlove him now, merely because I found that he has ceased to notice me” (Bronte 135). Jane is again trapped in her cage unable to be free because of Mr. Rochester’s binding love. All Jane wants to do is fly but is caged by the several obstacles in her life.
