Summary
Chapter 8
Miss Temple gives Jane strength
After Mr. Brocklehurst said a lot of bad things about Jane Eyre, she was on the desk; she
was isolated of the others. She was left alone and sat in a corner on the floor while the
others went to the refectory. She cried so much, because she thought that in Lowood she
had arrived to win affection and to be good. She was improving and Miss Miller promised
to teach her drawing and French. Then, Helen brought her coffee and bread.
She thought that everyone in Lowood believed that she was a liar but Helen told her that
that was untrue. She hated to be so solitary and unloved but Helen told her: "You are too
passionate". Finally Helen had calmed her. When Helen had finished speaking, she
breathed and coughed and Jane felt concern for Helen.
After went Miss Temple and invited Jane and Helen to her room. They sat by her cheerful
fire and Jane and Helen were eating tea, toasts and some delicious cake. Miss Temple said
that she would write to Dr. Lloyd to clear the accusations about Jane. A week later Dr.
Lloyd replied agreed with Jane's version. That day Miss Temple said the true and Jane was
happy, the teachers kissed her and the girls applauded. Jane was moved up to a higher class
and she began French and drawing and she discovered her talents.
