A Comparison of the Ideals of Bronte in Jane Eyre and Voltaire in Candide - The Ideals of Bronte in Jane Eyre and Voltaire in Candide        Subjective novelists tend to use personal attitudes to shape their characters. Whether it be an interjection of opinion here, or an allusion to personal experience there, the beauty of a story lies in the clever disclosure of the author's personality.
