    Jane's relationship question

    How does Jane's choice to speak or not speak in different interactions with Mr. Rochester reflect her changing relationship with him?

    (for the earlier portion of their relationship)

    Any knowledge greatly appreciated

    Thank you

    Jane's interaction with Rochester creates a repartee and although it's enigmatic to Jane, Rochester is actually describing his situation--although in very general terms. Gradually, she will begin to interact with him, responding to his questions and moral positions. It works up to the gypsy scene where Rochester exposes his actual understanding of who Jane really is. He knows she will not be his mistress. He admits it quite openly... making a mockery of his comments after the thwarted wedding about how he meant to tell her exactly what the situation is and allowing her to choose what she would do.
