Promotional Information

Anne Bronte's classic debut novel about life as a Victorian governess, with a new introduction by historian and biographer Juliet Barker.

About the Author

Anne Bronte was born in Yorkshire in 1820. She was the youngest of six children and the sister of fellow novelists Charlotte and Emily, the authors of Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights respectively. Her mother died when she was a baby and she was raised by her aunt and her father, the Reverend Patrick Bronte. Anne worked as a governess before returning home to Haworth where she and her sisters published poems under the pseudonyms Currer, Ellis and Acton Bell. She published her first novel, Agnes Grey, in 1847, followed by The Tenant of Wildfell Hall in 1848. She died from tuberculosis in 1849.

Reviews

The most perfect prose narrative in English letters -- George Moore
Anne provided her heroine with a hero who was actually nice to women. This still feels revolutionary * Guardian *
A compelling Victorian take on the iniquities of the wealth gap * Telegraph *
For too long [Anne] has been undervalued as the third-best Bronte. But her fiction, exploring the lamentably still-current themes of addiction and domestic violence and the abuse of vulnerable women working away from home, has a vigour and bracing satirical intelligence which places her in the first rank of what is arguably the greatest ever generation of novelists in English -- Lucy Hughes-Hallett
