     Charlotte Bronte’s style is known as “noble English.” In Jane Eyre, her style of writing articulates exactly what she desires to convey. She does not spend time writing embellishment or using too many words. Bronte’s style of writing is simple and straightforward. Due to this straightforwardness, the picture she depicts of each character and scene is unforgettable. It is vivid and imaginative. For example, the moor lands where Jane first meets Mr. Rochester and the candle lit room at Moor House are described so vibrantly that it is challenging to overlook.

     In addition, Charlotte Bronte resorts to turns of expressions that are not those of genuine speech. For instance, she portrays John Reed’s “spacious visage,” which indicates his stout face. Another example is the expression, “evacuating the refectory” which means to leave the dining room. These expressions are not phrases that can be easily said. Instead, they are used to enhance the imagination of the reader.

     Throughout the book, Charlotte Bronte uses her mind's eye to produce something out of the world. She is able to create her own distinctive style through her diction and description. Her unique turns of phrases also help produce her exclusive way of writing. Her novel, Jane Eyre, is an example of her style of writing. This is what characterizes Charlotte Bronte’s writing style.
