her normal subordinance. As book ends, Jane continues to be dependant, albeit this time the one on whom she depends is a constant, Mr. Rochester. They were in love. "... He felt I loved him so fondly, that to yield that attendance was to indulge my sweetest wishes." This may have been a wonderful prison, but it was a prison nonetheless. One may argue that Jane enjoys everlasting attention she showers on him, and that she loves being an attendant to him with none of her own pastimes. One may proclaim that she loves him enough to be this subservient, but the truth is she is just an addict to this dependence, for she continually returns to the path of dependence. Jane’s concern and care of Mr. Rochester may seem contradictory, and may even look like independence, but look deeper and uncover the actuality behind her mindfulness of him and see that her actions are indeed dependence, as Jane is incapable of functioning without Mr. Rochester’s love, and would cease into nothingness. One would assume that given her upbringing, with her so called family showing no affection, or, frankly interest in her life, Jane would come to fend for herself. Jane discredits this speculation, in fact, her nature is such to be dependent on anyone available, whether or not the attachment being felt is mutual or not. Jane has proven to us multiple times, that she is incapable of being on her own. She can show her self to be intelligence, through her writing, but this brain lacks a voice. Jane does not posses the confidence to stand up for herself, rendering herself inferior and insufficient. Although Jane's dependant demeanor somewhat curtails, she still will always resort back to her independence-lacking ways. In fact, the farther along Jane Eyre progresses, Jane's dependence, reaches more and more despairing depths. For as we reach the cusp of this novel, we see that Jane not only becomes more and more subservient, she is happy with it, she believes her subordinance to be one of the sweetest nature. Although it is she who is taking care of Mr. Rochester, and he may be seen as the dependent and she as the only one able to make independent choices, this assumption is incorrect. It really is Jane that is the one being dependent, for although she is the servant, and may enjoy the servitude; she is still relying on Mr. Rochester to live happily and sanely. It is clear now, that no matter how much Jane professes a yearning for independence, no matter the outcome; Jane Eyre's dénouement will always be dependence.
