    You totally got what I attempted to convey. Yes, I believe that Rochester’s motive was to merge the two identities between Bertha and Jane to get his perfect angel. As we all know, life never goes according to our plans, LoL. Also, you must remember that His marrying Bertha was also a financial decision. Rochester’s father married him off for financial reasons, not love. Bertha was a bad memory of Rochester’s father and his poor business dealings. For the most part, His father’s financial instability caused Rochester’s bitterness and anger towards Bertha.

    Glad I was able to provide a different outlook for you. Thanks for reading, and Wide Sargasso Sea is a very interesting read.

    I interpreted her actions as a beautiful accident, LoL. It could have been a multitude of things, anger, insanity, delirium, revenge…etc. After reading Wide Sargasso Sea, I honestly don’t believe that she was mentally unstable, but driven beyond her breaking point.

    Good that you’ve read it before seeing the movie version. The movie does not capture the true awkwardness of Jane and totally goes overboard with Bertha.

    Really?! LoL, I fell in love with with the story after reading Jane Austen. I love Bildungsroman novels.
