Bronte uses supernatural elements to show her characters’ psyches by foreshadowing and giving hints into their darkness and showing that people have strong connections with each other through eerie events. When Jane first arrived at Thornfield, she thought everything was so great. She had kept hearing screams and weird sounds, then someone had lit Mr. Rochester’s bed on fire, had stabbed a guest, and when a woman walked into Jane’s room and had torn her veil, Jane went to Mr. Rochester for answers. It wasn’t until their marriage day that the secret was discerned. Two men had come into the church and had given startling news. “’It simply consists of a previous marriage. Mr. Rochester has a wife now living.’” (Pg. 333) Jane had been so shocked by this. His wife, Bertha, had been the one who had lit the bed on fire, stabbed who we come to find out is her own brother, and she had been the one who came into Jane’s room that faithful night. Mr. Rochester then confessed he was forced into the marriage with Bertha and hadn’t known she was mentally ill until after the marriage. He had never wanted to be with her but he was forced into it. Her mental stage went into a downward spiral and there was no way out for Mr. Rochester, for he was caged as well by being in that relationship. To Jane, before she knew about Bertha, all these happenings were very supernatural, and she had not a clue what was going on. Bertha’s darkness is foreshadowed throughout Jane’s time at Thornfield and without knowing Bertha existed, an eerie element is perceived. Things were happening that seemed absurd and not something somebody normal would do, hence the foreshadowings towards Bertha’s mental illness. Also, Bronte showed that some people had very strong connections with each other. Jane had left Thornfield after finding out about Bertha, but desperately missed Mr. Rochester. One night Jane heard her name called three times in the darkness of the night by what she thought was Mr. Rochester’s voice and had replied, however they were way too far to hear each other. Jane soon returned to Mr. Rochester and he told her that he had actually called out her name thrice and he had heard a reply. “Reader, it was on Monday night-near midnight-that I too received the mysterious summons: those were the words by which I replied to it. I listened to Mr. Rochester’s narrative, but made no disclosure in return. The coincidence struck me as too awful and inexplicable to be communicated or discussed.” (pg. 520) Jane shows that this was an unexplainable event that occurred between the two of them. Their psyches are shown here through their love for each other and how they can never be apart because their connection is unbreakable.
