Bertha’s family heritage is complex and puts her in a difficult position. She’s half-Creole and half-English, raised in Jamaica among the British aristocrat half of her family, and already not exactly a part of one world or the other. She also suffers from congenital insanity (read: madness runs in her family). Rochester claims that she was drunken and promiscuous and that her excesses brought on her madness when she was young, but he’s not exactly an objective witness
So, Rochester and Jane Eyre are both haunted by his first wife, by Bertha Mason, and it's one of the most powerful and moving passages of the whole book and her presence haunts it even when she's not there and she's such an interesting figure because in some ways she's like Jane – there's lots of parallels between the. two of them. Jane's imprisoned early on in the red room. We later find Bertha imprisoned in Rochester's house. Both of them have this erotic romantic relationship with Rochester.
The BERTHA is a professional indoor charcoal oven. Compact yet powerful its ‘revolutionising the way restaurant food is being cooked’. Without BERTHA I’m not entirely sure my lunch at John Doe, just off London’s Portobello Road, would have been worth writing to anywhere about, let alone home. With her, a set of humble ingredients were allowed to present the best of themselves. She’s that most admirable of things: an enabler.
Jane Eyre is a book by Charlotte Brontë . Jane rejects his marriage proposal after she learns of Bertha, not only because she feels it would flout the law, but perhaps because Bertha's marriage is a cautionary symbol of Victorian marriage: despite Mr. Rochester's best intentions and Jane's equal intellectual standing, he may still end up imprisoning Jane in his own way through matrimony, just as he has imprisoned.
