I suggest this because I'm re-reading it now and I'm struck by the almost bipolar nature of poor Lucy -- teeming with passionate need for something she can't name and yet insisting that she doesn't deserve it, she's just a poor, modest thing, no one should look at her, etc. etc.
If Lucy is supposed to be an insight into Charlotte Bronte's true self...*coughs, looks away*
Aside from that Lucy setting out alone to travel to a foreign country, with no prospects, marks her as unconventional, although she's not exactly Sue Bridehead.
