Publisher's Description

Agnes Grey is the story of a young woman who is forced by poverty to work as a governess for wealthy families while attempting to find love and happiness of her own. Set in early Victorian England, and based on Anne Bronte’s own experiences, the novel explores Agnes’s struggles with her cruel, uncaring employers, and a society that does not value a woman of her low position. Though less well known than the novels of her sisters, Emily and Charlotte, Anne’s first book has been praised by critics for its wit and “near perfect prose.”

Author Bio

English novelist and poet Anne Brontë was the youngest, and least recognized, member of the Brontë literary family. She wrote a volume of poetry with her sisters, Charlotte and Emily, before publishing two novels under the name Acton Bell. Brontë achieved modest success with her first novel, Agnes Grey, which was based on her time working as a governess, but her second novel, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall was a triumph, selling out in just six weeks. The Tenant of Wildfell Hall is also considered one of the first feminist novels, with depictions of alcoholism and immorality that were profoundly disturbing in the 19th century. Brontë died of tuberculosis in 1849 at the age of 29. Collectively, the Brontë sisters' novels are considered literary standards that continue to influence modern writers.
