      • Foreshadows St John leaving for India
    • Page 292 shows how Jane lacks control of her passion

      • Use of sentence structure the storm is never gonna leave
    • “the great horse-chestnut at the bottom of the orchard had been stuck by lightning in the night, and half of it split away.” page 296
      • Foreshadows that Jane and Rochester will be separated when the secret about Bertha comes out
