Describe at least one moment where you related to the character of Jane Eyre, and identify one the stylistic choices the author made that allowed you to connect more closely to the protagonist.
The author uses a first-person narrative voice, which puts in directly in Jane's head and allows for you to feel for her on a personal level. To a modern reader, this feels like a bold choice, as women were not often given the same agency as men in contemporary literature of the time. The author gave us access to her thoughts and emotions, and during the scene where she discovers Mr. Rochester's secret, I connected with her on a more personal level because I knew how deeply she felt for him, and I had a sense that her hopes and dreams where crumbling. If the author had not used first-person, I might not have understood the impact of the discovery on the protagonist.

Describe the acting technique developed by Michael Chekhov, highlighting at least one specific approach that an actor could put into practice:
Michael Chekhov was a Russian actor, author, theatre practitioner, director and teacher who developed acting techniques that focused on the connection between the mind and body. He believed that movement and posture could reveal the psychological nature of the character, and could be used by actors to reveal the personality, thoughts, feelings, and desires of their characters. He believed that the body is divided into three centers, the head, heart, and gut. Characters who lead from the head are often driven by intellect, characters who lead from the heart are often driven by sentiment, and characters who lead from the belly are often driven by their appetite. Once the actor chooses a leading center, all of his or her gestures and movements should emanate from that center.
