But with Jessica things go a little differently. When the Reverend Mother comes to test Paul, we see Jessica act very submissively toward the older lady.
Table of Contents Jessica Jessica is one of the most complicated characters in Dune.
Like her son, she is the product of centuries of genetic breeding by the Bene Gesserit, an ancient school that teaches women how to develop superhuman mental and physical abilities. Jessica rebels against the school—she was instructed by the Bene Gesserit to bear a daughter, but she defied them and bore a son instead.
The two are in love, but Leto will not marry her for political reasons. Leto knows that as long as he is unmarried, he has something to offer the other Great Houses. She is forced to live in the harsh desert among the Fremen and use all her abilities to survive, including seducing her captors.
Jessica resigns her wifelike role and becomes a reverend mother, serving as a matriarchal figure to thousands of people. Jessica has been preparing for such a role by training as a Bene Gesserit from birth.
Throughout the novel, however, she is often troubled by emotions that intercede with her loyalty to the Bene Gesserit. Most significantly, she regrets that she groomed Paul so well for the messianic role of Kwisatz Haderach.
Like Paul, Jessica finds herself swept along by a subtle, yet firm current of time, leading inexorably to an unknown conclusion. Jessica is far more passive than Paul in receiving her fate because of her Bene Gesserit training.

Only near the end of her exile on Arrakis does Jessica begin to see the infinite future possibilities that Paul has perceived all along.A Duke's son leads desert warriors against the galactic emperor and his father's evil nemesis when they assassinate his father and free their desert world from the emperor's rule.

I read Dune several years ago, and this has always bothered me. Jessica's decision to bear a male child was such a big deal amongst the Bene Gesserit that they call it 'The Jessica Crime'. Howeve. Jessica's Dune. This is a very nice vacation beach house.
It is an older beach house so some updates could be made: carpet upstairs and updated bathrooms. However, the house has a beautiful view of the sound from the deck and has just about everything you could imagine in it.
It is about a block to the ocean which is just up the street. Dune is a great book, and Simon Vance, the primary narrator of the audible version I'm listening to, has probably one of my favorite voices of all time.
