Summary
  • Explores the social life of a young nineteenth-century English woman
  • Written when she was twenty-six, Agnes Grey is Anne Brontë's first novel. It tells the story of a rector's daughter who has to earn her living as a governess. Drawing directly from her own experiences, Anne Brontë set out to describe the immense pressures that the governess's life involved-the frustration, the isolation, and the insensitive and cruel treatment on the part of employers and their families. Too often, Anne Brontë has been portrayed as a saintly, self-effacing shadow of her elder sisters. But clearly she possessed resources of courage and determination equal to theirs, together with a sweetness that was all her own
