Sample text

Until her reformation at the end of the novel, Emma spins out fictions that are false because of her lack of understanding of human nature and her lack of awareness that people have minds and wills of their own; in contrast, Austen creates fictions that are true because of her splendid insights into human nature. 11 In contrast, Emma Woodhouse cannot be an accurate portraitist because she cannot see people as they are. Her painting is therefore comical, and Austen punishes her not so much for having too much imagination as .................

Her surreal art, consisting of the watercolors that Rochester selects from her portfolio, is more deeply tied to her psyche, hinting at her fate in a riddling way and expressing her inner self through imagery. Such imagery proves useful because in Jane Eyre the concept of the self is presented as more problematic, tension-filled, and conflicted than in most earlier novels, and so too, relationships—especially those between Jane and Rochester and Jane and St. John Rivers—involve near-Lawrentian struggles for domination and control between powerful but somewhat amorphous egos.

She makes plausible excuses for the unfinished work: exact likenesses are difficult to do, and the five little nieces and nephews will not sit still for their portraits. But the truth is that Emma lacks industry and patience, as Mr. Knightley frequently points out. Emma is also quite willing, however, to have others of lesser taste think of her as a better painter than she is, although she sees the dishonesty of the pleasure she takes in their praise. An additional irony is that her work is better than ‘‘many might have done with so little labor as she would ever submit to’’ (28).
