Product Description

Written when women---and workers generally---had few rights in England, Agnes Grey exposes the brutal inequities of the rigid class system in mid-nineteenth-century Britain. Agnes comes from a respectable middle-class family, but their financial reverses have forced her to seek work as a governess. Pampered and protected at home, she is unprepared for the harsh reality of a governess's life. At the Bloomfields and, later, the Murrays, she suffers under the snobbery and sadism of the selfish, self-indulgent upper-class adults and the shrieking insolence of their spoiled children. Worse, the unique social and economic position of a governess---"beneath" her employers but "above" their servants---condemns her to a life of loneliness.

Unabridged MP3-CD; approximately 6 hours 28 minutes; 1 MP3-CD; performed by Emilia Fox.

Publisher's Description

Anne Brontë's first novel, boldly drawn from her own experiences as a governess

Anne Brontë wrote Agnes Grey out of an urgent need to inform her contemporaries about the desperate position of unmarried, educated women driven to take up the only "respectable" career open to them—that of a governess. Struggling with the monstrous Bloomfield children and then disdained in the superior Murray household, Agnes tells a story that is a compelling inside view of Victorian chauvinism and ruthless materialism.

This novel is part of Brilliance Audio's extensive Classic Collection, bringing you timeless masterpieces that you and your family are sure to love.
