Agnes Grey [9781509890002]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Drawing on her own experience, Anne Bronte exposes the isolated world of a nineteenth-century governess in her debut novel, Agnes Grey.

Part of the Macmillan Collector's Library; a series of stunning, clothbound, pocket sized classics with gold foiled edges and ribbon markers. These beautiful books make perfect gifts or a treat for any book lover. This edition is introduced by historian and biographer, Juliet Barker.

Agnes Grey is the youngest daughter of a clergyman. When the family falls on hard times, she insists on finding work as a governess in order to help her family and prove to them that she's no longer a child. But her idealistic spirit is tested in her first position with the Bloomfield family and their unruly and spoilt children. Next she works for the even wealthier Murray family, whose scheming daughter Rosalie threatens to jeopardize the only bright spot in Agnes's life: the young curate Edward Weston.


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.
