Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë is a novel that focuses heavily on the protagonist's sense of self-respect and her insistence on remaining true to her principles and standards despite all odds. One of the most fundamental aspects of Jane's character is her refusal to sacrifice her own values for any person or under any circumstance. Thus, when complications to the marriage between Jane and the man she loves--Edward Rochester--arise, Jane refuses the union until conditions are met under which she can freely and wholeheartedly marry this man without sacrificing her self-dignity. Many elements of Jane Eyre develop and transform from the time at which Rochester first proposes to Jane to when she finally accepts his offer and marries him, in order for this union to permit Jane to preserve her self-identity and remain faithful to herself and her principles.
