In the novel, ‘Jane Eyre’ by Charlotte Brontë, the main character Jane was always under the control of others and ‘caged’ as a child, but when she grows up she is finally set free to ‘fly.’ For instance, since she was a child people felt they could put rules and restrictions on her especially the people who took care of her and the strict boarding school. The book goes on to tell us about Jane’s family making her do things for them and giving her little benefits and even when she leaves to boarding school the school is very strict and Jane must live by firm rules and restrictions. This demonstrates how Jane was symbolically ‘caged’; always under someone else’s roof. She was given so many boundaries and limitations just like a bird in a cage. Although, Jane is caged as a child, later in the book she grows up and is finally set free to fly. The book illustrates this for us when Jane leaves boarding school and is finally in complete control of herself and gets to decide what she wants to do, which ultimately gets her to Thorn Field. This indicates that Jane is now completely in flight and free of the boundaries and limitations that once held her back so much. Representing, that the caged bird is now in flight.
