In response to Rochester is forgiven, written by Linda on October 13, 1997 at 16:10:57
] Two weeks ago, I as blasting Rochester for his selfishness and insensitivity. I felt sorry for the betrayal that he had suffered, but I could not excuse his treatment of Jane.
] Well now I feel that he has paid for his past actions and he seems truly repentant. He now deserves Jane and he really, truly loves her. I think that the loss of his hand and vision were nothing to him in comparison to his loss of Jane.
] They both deserve to live happily ever after!!
Just because CB chose to unman Rochester by blinding and making him lose a hand does not mean he has been transformed as a being. It is no longer in his power to persue all he desires.
He's still a jerk in my books. I can find no evidence tht he has really changed. Perhaps reader tend to love him because Jane, who we are so fond of loves him. I do not find this enough reason to change my opinion.
