Example: Blanche Ingram in Jane Eyre?

@bluebellbk: I put 'obviously' because I assume that as an a level student we're passed getting our work entirely from others...

Also it's English homework so everyone's going to have something different to say, and by getting others' opinions one can elaborate more easily - also, you often get the teacher's opinion first to elaborate on, so why not other people's?

Anyway, this is all I've managed to come up with so far (sorry if you can't understand my notes; I often write in a rather short-handed fashion):

-relationships, like her, are superficial
-> she only wants anything to do with people who can give her something of 'worth'
-> her false [openness? kindness? struggling to think of a word here] with Rochester is due to his wealth
- her relationship with Jane seems to be simply one of scorn
-she doesn't consider others unless they are of her status, so workers and children are scorned
-> strongly dislikes Adele: like J

Well, first, consider what her name means: 'white', or 'blank'. There are two kinds of blank slates-- one that has never been tested, so we don't know how well it'll do; and one that has been tested and has come out clean, untainted by experience. Which is Blanche?

-relationships, like her, are superficial

WHY is she superficial? Why does being superficial make most sense for her purposes?

-> she only wants anything to do with people who can give her something of 'worth'

WHY? Answer this. Consider the scene after which she consults with the 'gipsy'.

-> her false [openness? kindness? struggling to think of a word here] with Rochester is due to his wealth

Blanche is not poor. Why would a gorgeous 19-year-old be interested in a 37-year-old man who is not good-looking? She is 'the Honourable', a gentleman's daughter; she could take any young lord or gentleman in the county. What does a relationship with Rochester do for her?

- her relationship with Jane seems to be simply one of scorn

WHY? Consider the girls' discussion about governesses. Now read (or, in the film, see) the part in 'Emma' where the dinner party discuss the governess trade and 'the sale of human intellect'. What WAS the status of governesses in the 19th C? And what does it say about young women's value for education?

-she doesn't consider others unless they are of her status, so workers and children are scorned

As above. Also, consider the other young ladies at the house party. They must be gentlemen's daughters as well. How does Blanche treat them? WHY?

-> strongly dislikes Adele: like J

Why does Blanche dislike Adele? What does Adele represent to Blanche? --about Rochester's past? --about their future together? What would Blanche prefer?

Like Jane? But Jane doesn't dislike Adele. She does view her as a work-in-progress, however. Adele will never be bright-witted; but Jane knows how to teach common minds-- she has done it before and well. What is Jane's relationship with Adele like at the time of the house party? What does Rochester tell her about Adele's progress?

Moreover, why is Jane even AT the house party? We understand that, being Rochester's ward, Adele should be there; she is rather on-display. Why did he invite Jane as well? What does this say about his value for her? --or about his attitude towards Blanche?

As he furthers his ruse about marrying Blanche, what does he tell Jane he is planning about Adele's education? So what must Blanche know, of Adele's future, at the time of the house party? What does Blanche know, then, about Jane's future as governess? And how does this account for that deplorably mocking, snotty, smug attitude she's giving off at the party?

BTW-- Charlotte was not done with governesses and, a few years later, wrote 'Villette', based on her experiences as a teacher of English at a Belgian school, in which the narrator's name was Lucy Snow. Originally she meant her to be called Lucy Frost, but reconsidered, saying that was just a bit too obvious. What is Charlotte's meaning in insisting that such characters be depicted as white, virginal, untried, unspoilt? What's the relevance to the story? Vis.: what comment does Rochester make, in the red-and-white drawing room (so symbolic! --who is 'red' and who is 'white'?) about Jane's experience in the world?

BTW too-- please avoid all the recent film adaptations of 'JE' and stick with the positively excellent 1983 BBC-TV version with Zelah Clarke and Timothy Dalton. This is a scholars' dream, perfectly authentic to the book aside from only two or three minor glitches. And the casting was well done-- Zelah Clarke is the most perfect Jane as could be imagined despite being nearly 30 at filming.

Example: Please, explain the meaning of this sentence/lyric to me.?

So... The song all in all talks about a girl who loved someone. But the guy loved someon else. There is one thing... a meaning I do not understand. It goes like this:

"I can see that we’re connected by a crimson thread…
I’m a blue thread."

Do you know what this might mean?

If you would like, here's the rest of the song (it is not long)

If we didn’t meet back then
I wouldn’t be having nightmares in my dreams
If you weren’t born in this world
Then I would’ve died without knowing jealousy or pain

The one who you wanted
Was a person completely opposite of me

I can see that we’re connected by a crimson thread…
I’m a blue thread

Try touching me; my heart now
Falls in love on its own, gets hurt on its own
Don’t touch me; if my thoughts can’t be fulfilled
Then only an indigo bruise remains inside of my chest

Example: How about this essay/story?

Life has ceased to hold any meaning for me now. I find no joy in whatever I do, I no longer have a will to live. I had been born to rich parents and I was their only child. As a result my birth had been cherished and as is apparent to me now, highly celebrated. I was born quite a long time post my parents’ marriage-seven years to be exact.
I don’t know from when but I have forgotten the meaning of all emotions. My only happy memories include those with my parents. My parents died long ago, and since I have been left with no other alternative but to contemplate these memories. Memories are the only figment of my mind, which I can turn to for some solace.
I was born on the 27th of February, 1981 at 12:07 pm to be precise. My parents had always wished for a boy. Not that they had anything against a female child, but they had always wished for a boy. If I come to think of it now, I can say that they would have been far better off with a girl. Anyways their prayers were answered when I was born. My parents left no stone unturned to spread the word that a son had been born to them. Almost everybody had been invited(as I had been told by my parents) to look at me, and then dig into the sweets that had been brought for the special occasion.
My parents also made sure that my upbringing was of the very best kind. Both my parents were working people. My father was a successful businessman, while my mother used to work for a NGO, but this did not hinder them from making sure that I had plenty of people to look after me. I had two governesses-one to look after my whims and fancies and the other to make sure that i learnt something. My parents devoted whatever little time they had to me. They never failed to play with me!
But then times changed and as I grew up, my toys were completely replaced by books. First they were nursery rhyme books with colourful pictures but as I grew up, they became more colourless and dull, as they became thick. But the books were not the only things that lost colour. Eventually all the colour died out of my life. My parents had high expectations from an average student. I began to dread my parents. Their visit to my room would inadvertently turn out to be their lectures as to how I needed to do better.
As i have said, I was what could be best described as an average student. All my parents’ talks as to how I was doing very badly led to pent up frustration and anger within me. I became rude and insolent. I became a rebel. Needless to say, my studies dived for rock bottom! And then it happened. My whole day had been marred by the fact that I had failed in Chemistry, and the situation wasn’t helped by the fact that I had my parents waiting at home eagerly to know my results. When I went home, I found out that they had already been informed of my results by our class teacher.
What happened after that, was something that I will regret forever. I had already anticipated another lecture from my parents. What I hadn’t anticipated was my own reaction. The moment they started saying that I had failed their expectations yet again, something snapped inside of me, and then it happened.
I know there’s no use in regretting what has been done already, but still I can seem to do nothing else. I want to end my life but lack the courage to do so. So i have to reconcile myself to the fact that my world is confined to these bars, as I serve the punishment for the murder of my parents

Example: 10 points for best answer! can you edit this essay for me please, tell me if its good?!?

have to write a research essay about Mary MacKillop, this one sounds a lot like a biography can you edit it so it doesn't, as well as add primary and secondary sources where they should go in the essay please! 10 points for best answer! <3xox

Born in 1842 to two Scottish immigrants, Mary Helen MacKillop was brought up in a very
religious, financially unstable household in Fitzroy, Melbourne. She decided at a young
age to lead a religious life. This goal was realized in 1866, after MacKillop had worked
as a shop assistant, teacher and governess.
In 1866 MacKillop met an English priest, Julian Tenison-Woods who was based in South
Australia. Tenison-Woods shared her dream, almost dedicated brand of Catholicism.
Together they founded the Sisters of St. Joseph of the Sacred Heart, which was dedicated
to looking after poor Catholic children, and providing them with a quality, Catholic
The establishment of the order was not without its drama. In 1871 MacKillop was
excommunicated from the Catholic Church for insubordination; reports had been made of
strange visions, self-inflicted versions of Christ's wounds, and other unorthodox
practices among the sisters of the order. Although the order's numbers decreased,
MacKillop was determined that this would not be her undoing.
Bishop Shiel had excommunicated MacKillop. However, in 1872, while on his deathbed, he
withdrew his accusations. MacKillop traveled to Rome. Here she gained approval for the
Josephites' Rule, and what became her own order. This was opposed to the vision she had
shared with Tenison-Woods, and in seeking approval from Rome, she effectively severed
their relationship.
By 1875 the order had grown to include over 200 nuns and more than 40 schools. It was
organized according to the original principle of providing the poor with quality Catholic
education as a means of escaping their financial hardship. The Josephites continue to be
characterized by living their own lives in poverty, and maintaining a fiercely
egalitarian ethos among themselves and in their teaching.
MacKillop was elected to the superior-general's position within the sisterhood in 1875,
and she was popular amongst followers of her order. Nevertheless, in 1883 MacKillop was
plagued by criticisms of financial mismanagement. Her prescribed medicinal use of brandy
fuelled allegations of alcoholism. Demonstrating a determination to overcome these
difficulties, MacKillop relocated the order's financial headquarters away from her
critics, and rose above the pettiness of malicious claims.
MacKillop died in May 1909 from a stroke. In the early 1960s, over fifty years later, the
requisite miracle for her beatification occurred: prayers offered to her are said to have
cured a woman of cancer. She was beatified in 1995 by Pope John Paul II, and is the first
Australian to have had this honor.
MacKillop is significant to Australia's large Catholic population, and the strong
Catholic tradition within Australian culture. However, MacKillop is not only revered for
her religious work, but also her cultural contribution. Her refusal to submit to
patriarchal Church authority, a fierce independence, and the egalitarian attitude of her
life and work recommend her as a strong female and Australian role model.

Everlasting (Summery)
By: Evangelium Carsem

The story has always seemed like a very farfetched fantasy, but to the character Evangelium, it’s beyond real. As a poor man’s son, Evangelium has always has had a hard time; from the public school at the church, to the rich bullies who also attended, and not being allowed to be friends with an instant best friend; Evangelium is lost in a dark world. Or so it seemed till Nicholas decided to become a run away.
Having a best friend who was rich was just a bonus to Evangelium, he didn’t mind all the teasing the maids at the nunnery told him, thinking that Nicholas was a little girl; and Nicholas didn’t mind the teasing from the bullies that he would be nice to apparent “scum”. The two boys were inseparable, and never argued, just the best of friends! Until “she” came…
Cassandra (Cassidy, Cass, or Casey for short) Jesse Morris, a seven year old, daughter of the famous actress Christina Hamilton and the richest man in London, Adrian Morris. The little girl had run away from her governess while shopping. She’d run into the boys turning into the alleyway they played in, pretending to be pirates. At first the two boys thought about keeping her for awhile and wait till there was a reward for finding her, but she wouldn’t hear of it; instead she asked to join Evangelium at the convent. She would make herself look homeless and hide from her parents. Being young and stupid the boys decided to help the girl, the three became good friends, but as time ticked by the little dream they thought they lived unraveled quickly. Evangelium was condemned to stealing, and was to lose his arms, Nicholas was now an outlaw for running away from a murder he had witnessed, and Cassandra was endangered by the men who looked past the alleyway, recognizing the girl, but their intentions weren’t towards the reward of returning her. Doing the best, Evangelium and Nicholas returned Cassandra for the safety of them all, gaining a large summed reward. After several years, the children grew into young adults and Nicholas was soon arranged to marry Cassandra at the age of sixteen, only a year away. Evangelium, having fallen in love with Cassandra also was enraged and he and Nicholas verged into a bloody fight, leaving both in the state of a near death. Passed out the boys were unaware of the persons who loomed over their dying bodies. Being bitten and left to change, Nicholas and Evangelium where turned into vampires. Blood hungry and wild, Nicholas ended up killing his family, having lost control of the animal of a bear inside.
Evangelium still could hear the howls and cries of pain as he slaughtered the people in the convent. Laying in a blood bath, both boys were approached by their masters and enraged by the fact o being a killer, the boys slaughtered their masters in turn of more pain.
