Charlotte Temple Essay


The Tabloid of the Century
(1800's -1900's)

The general reason I think Charlotte Temple stayed on the best seller list for so many
years is because the subjects that were discussed in the book were taboo in that day and
time.

Montraville was a soldier in the army who was about twenty three years old, and Charlotte
was only fifteen. He was much older than Charlotte. Montraville influenced her in evil
ways; he impressed her with his knowledge of love and the world by writing her a letter
and giving it to her personally . Montraville knew this was forbidden but gave it to her
anyway.


' Tis a romantic attempt,'; said he,';and should I even succeed in seeing and conversing
with her, it can be productive of no good: I must of necessity leave England in a few days
and probably may never return; why then should I endeavor to engage the
affections of this lovely girl, to leave her prey to a thousand inquietudes, of which at
present she has no idea? I will return to Portsmouth and think no more about her';( Rowson
11 ).


Montraville went against his judgment. He knew that her parents would be angry if they
knew that their daughter was having a relationship with a man! He was supposed to be a
responsible soldier: an honorable man that would not do this kind of thing! But he would
continue to see her. He even paid her guardian so she would keep bringing her to see him.


' He soon pund means to ingratiate himself with her companion, who was a French teacher at
the school, and, at parting, slipped a letter he had written into Charlotte's hand,
and five guineas into that of Mademoiselle, who promised she would endeavor to bring her
young charge into the field again the next evening'; (Rowson 11).


Montraville was influenced himself by Belcore who was evil. When Montraville and Charlotte
would meet, he would bring Belcore along to entertain Charlotte's guardian, La Rue.


'...he had wisely brought Belcore with him to entertain Mademoiselle while he
could have an uninterrupted conversation with Charlotte. ...
Belcore... possessed a genteel fortune and had a liberal education;
Dissipated, thoughtless, and capricious, he paid little regard to the moral
duties, and less to religious ones: eager in the pursuit of pleasure, he
minded not the miseries he inflicted on others, provided his own wishes,
however extravagant, were gratified. Self, darling self, was the idol he
worshipped, and that he would have sacrificed the interest and happiness of all
mankind.

Montraville ... generous in his disposition, liberal in his opinions, and good-natured
almost to a fault; yet eager and impetuous in the pursuit of a favorite
object, he staid not to reflect on the consequences which might fallow the
attainment of his wishes; with a mind ever open to conviction, had been
fortunate as to possess a friend who would have pointed out the cruelty of
endeavoring to gain the heart of a innocent artless girl, when he knew it was utterly
impossible for him to marry her,... Belcore was not this friend; he rather
encouraged the growing passion of Montraville;...'; (Rowson37-38).


La Rue, posing as a friend, was the cause of Charlotte's destruction. La Rue, like
Belcore, was only looking out for herself. She did not care if Charlotte was going to be
hurt from this relationship; she did not care if it was dangerous for Charlotte. If La Rue
had been responsible she would have never allowed Charlotte to talk to this man in the
first place. Therefore they would have never had a relationship. La Rue had beauty, but no
goodness in her heart .

  • Feminism in Jane Erye
    Feminism in Jane Erye Feminism in Jane Erye Feminism is a very contradictory theme throughout literary history. It does not have to be seen as a complete rebellion against men, but can simply represent intelligence and self-worth in a female. This philosophy is shown in many of the works of Charlotte Bronte. She uses independence as a “keynote in her thinking about her own life and the life of all unmarried women” (Ewbank 157). One such work is Jane Erye. In this novel Charlotte Bronte personifi

They were merely supposed to marry the man who their families intended them to marry, and live their lives being a du
