This is for an English project that I'll probably blow off, but I need to be prepared in case I decide/need to attend the damn class.

♫ What is the theme of Jane Eyre?
♫ What are the connections between the book, the individual (you), community and the world?

The themes of Jane Eyre:
Love and Passion
Independence
God and Religion
Atonement and Forgiveness
Search for Home and Family

http://www.answers.com/topic/jane-eyre-novel-3

After looking at the themes, you could probably figure out the second question, too. Jane Eyre has multiple themes that you, the world, and the community can relate with. We all go through love, everybody seeks independence, etc.

English as in the society, or the language?
If your talking about the language, I am not quite sure what you mean.
As for the society, there are many: Marriage, compassion, religion, sympathy, the roles of men and women, etc in English society.

You could talk about how marriage was not always based on love/passion and how women had less independence than men.

Well, Jane went wandering around in the cold and rain. She came on her cousins' house, and was turned away by the maid. However, she was later admitted in. Compassion seemed the right thing then.
Now would we let some stranger into our houses? Probably not. Even then, it was risky, but done.

Since my Powerpoint document type is too advanced for my teacher's computer, I still have tomorrow to present it. While watching my classmates' works, some of them had "symbolism" as one of their concepts. What does that mean? HELP!

I don't understand how your classmates used symbolism as an English concept, unless we're misinterpreting the definition of "English concepts." Hm.

Anyway, symbolism is basically when an object, place, etc. represents something. Like in Lord of the Flies, Piggy's glasses are a symbol of intelligence.

What were some symbols in Jane Eyre, then? The Red Room may be one example.

No need to apologize. I was just so irritated that I didn't realize it before!

Yes, but you don't need to do that. Wikipedia is the key! (and my brain from past lessons) Wink Thanks for your help. And Kelsey's. I was ready to explode at first when I got this project. Now I'm super ready to get a high mark! bouncy

Nicholle is fine, although Clementine is prettier. I took it from the song "My Darling Clementine." For a children's song, it's pretty creepy. (Just like the "ashes, ashes, we all fall down" song).

And yes, I'm off from school. Yesterday was my last day.

It was pretty fun, but I'm going to miss my English teacher so much. He wrote the best message in my yearbook.

I've never had finals except for my French class. Next year, though, we're supposed to start having finals in every class. A school we butt heads with does finals, so I think that was the inspiration. Grr.

Never in my life have I heard those types of things called "English concepts." I'd call them "writing tools" or something. "English concepts" should have something to do with then English language itself, such as grammar or idioms or something.
But that's just me.

I've never heard them referred to as "English concepts" either. I've always heard terms like "allusions" and "symbols" called "literary terms."

"Literary terms" seems so much clearer.
