The opposition between Romanticism and rationality provides one perspective on this struggle. The Romantic view would be that one may justifiably rebel against social conformity. Jane feels a constant pressure rationally to conform with society's demands, to accept the limiting facts of her class and sex. But Jane pushes against these limits, fighting convention in order to keep a space clear for her inner life. When Charlotte Bronte gives us panoramic glimpses into Jane's imaginative world, she appears to support Jane's rebellion.
Jane does not tell us what she is now feeling, so it is open to question whether she believes her love is requited, or whether she suppresses the hope. Whatever the case, this second crisis in the career of her passion once again coincides with an attack from Mrs Rochester. In the latter half of this chapter Rochester nearly ceases to speak in riddles, however transparent, thus openly declaring himself. Such frankness occurs in the garden, an appropriate setting as the garden symbolises the freedom of nature.
In the following sections we will be looking at this central theme from varying angles. But before we do so it may help to look at the core opposition more closely. It is here raised by St John Rivers. St John has just confessed to Jane that 'Reason, and not feeling, is my guide: my ambition is unlimited; my desire to rise higher, to do more than others, insatiable' (Chapter 32). Jane reasonably rejoins that St John is a 'pagan philosopher', as he seems devoted to worldly fame, and not God. St John defends himself by saying that his ambition does indeed serve religion: Won in youth to religion, she has cultivated my original qualities thus: From the minute germ, natural affection, she has developed the overshadowing tree, philanthropy.
