What does Jane Eyre Tell Us About Rich Kids?

I noticed that in Jane Eyre, the way they portray rich children is in a negative manner. The kids are rude, arrogant, greedy, and selfish. The kids almost seem to be like an analogy to me to society at large. As it becomes more spoiled, it becomes more like the rich kids in the book. Does anyone else see this?

  1. Bronte portrays rich children as negative in this story. This could be because Charlotte grew up poor and all of the rich kids that she met treated her poorly or as a lesser status because of her money. It is obviously a personal opinion of Bronte that she added in her story. I know plenty of rich kids that are nice people and do not let their money get the best of them of change them as a person. In Jane Eyre, however, most of the rich kids are portrayed as mean spirited and they treat the lower class with disdain.
