Jane Eyre, Chapter 9
“I should not have suspected that it meant she was dying; but I
knew instantly now! It opened clear on my comprehension that Helen
Burns was numbering her last days in this world, and that she was
going to be taken to the region of spirits, if such region there were. I
experienced a shock of horror, then a strong thrill of grief, then a
desire— a necessity to see her; and I asked in what room she lay. “
Jane Eyre, Chapter 9
“Her grave is in Brocklebridge churchyard: for fifteen years after her
death it was only covered by a grassy mound; but now a grey marble
tablet marks the spot, inscribed with her name, and the word
"Resurgam.””
