Abstract

This thesis examines Charlotte Brontë's two major works, Jane Eyre and Villette, and uses these as the primary texts from which a psychological analysis of repressed memory and creative expression is produced. Using Carl Jung's work as a model to analyze these two works, this thesis provides a comprehensive study of the Victorian female psyche and demonstrates to what extent Bronte's portrayal of the female mind is a reflection of her own psychological state.
