Description

Drawing directly on her own unhappy experiences, Anne Bronte's first-person narrative describes the almost unbelievable pressures endured by nineteenth-century governesses - the isolation, the frustration, and the insensitive and sometimes cruel treatment meted out by employers and their families. Distinguished by its sharp, often ironic observation of middle-class social behaviour, this deeply personal novel also touches on religious belief, moral responsibility, and individual integrity and its survival.

Auteur

The youngest Bronte sister, Anne, wrote her debut novel Agnes Grey in 1847, which much like her more famous sister's novel Jane Eyre, dealt with the oppressive treatment of women in the 19th century.



Texte du rabat

Bronte's debut novel, which tells the story of a governess who is determined to seek work after her family becomes impoverished. With a glossary and a Life & Times section.
