    Evaluating Passionate Text: Significance of the Chestnut Tree in Jane Eyre The thunder rumbled through the clouds and as a sudden streak flashed across the sky; the lightning violently hit the tree and the repercussions of this (God-like) action had little arcs that danced across the thick, black sky. The tree hung in despair and disbelief, almost as if it were a weeping willow instead of a horse chestnut tree. In Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre, “the chestnut tree is hit by lightning on the…
