In response to Blanche Ingram--What were you thinking, Edward?, written by Rachel on September 29, 1997 at 20:32:52
] Blanche Ingram--was that in the best taste, Rochester? The only time I really thought bad of him was when he put Jane through the ringer by parading Blanche Ingram in front of her. That was cruel, without meaning to be so. Why did he really think he had to do that? Did he really doubt her affections for him that much?
] Was that OK of him, or what?
No, that was definitely NOT attractive of him. I donīt think he really doubted Janeīs affection for him, but he wanted to trick her into revealing those well hidden feelings. He knew she had spirit and would end up bursting with all that pent-up emotion. But that shows,as Ciaran Hinds once said in an interview, that Rochester does have a cruel streak in him.
