Book Short Summary:

When her family becomes impoverished after a disastrous financial speculation, Agnes Grey determines to find work as a governess in order to contribute to their meagre income and assert her independence. But Agnes's enthusiasm is swiftly extinguished as she struggles first with the unmanageable Bloomfield children and then with the painful disdain of the haughty Murray family; the only kindness she receives comes from Mr Weston, the sober young curate. Drawing on her own experience, Anne Brontë's first novel offers a compelling personal perspective on the desperate position of unmarried, educated women for whom becoming a governess was the only respectable career open in Victorian society.

Discover the lesser-known but brilliant novel by the hugely under-appreciated Anne Brontë. When Agnes’s father loses the family savings, young Agnes determines to make her own living – as a governess. Working for the Bloomfields, her enthusiasm is soon dampened by isolation and the cruelty of the children in her charge. Agnes hopes for better in her second job, but when the scheming elder daughter Rosalie makes designs on Agnes’s new friend, the kind curate Mr Weston, she feels herself silenced and sidelined. Becoming a governess is one thing, becoming invisible is quite another. WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY SAMANTHA ELLIS

Book Short Summary:

“Agnes Grey” is a 1847 novel by English author Anne Brontë. Her debut novel, it tells the story of a governess called Agnes Grey who works in families of the English upper class in the early nineteenth century. Widely believed to have been heavily influenced by her own experiences as a governess, is an authentic portrayal of their delicate roles and how they affected young women. Anne Brontë (1820 – 1849) was an English novelist and poet. She was the youngest member of world-renowned the Brontë family, famous for their contributions to English literature. Although her novels are now classics of English literature, she was not as well known as her sisters—partly due to the fact that her sister Emily Brontë prevented the re-publication of “The Tenant of Wildfell Hall” after her death. This fantastic novel is highly recommended for all lovers of the English language and is well deserving of a place on any bookshelf. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.

Book Short Summary:

Anne Brontë, a irmã menos conhecida, foi a primeira a publicar um romance, Agnes Grey, sob o pseudônimo Acton Bell sendo seguida por Charlotte e Emily com Jane Eyre e O Morro dos Ventos Uivantes. Tão feminista quanto Agnes Grey, a voz corajosa de Anne ressoa e durante um dos tempos mais preconceituosos e patriarcais da história inglesa. O romance segue acompanha as atividades de Agnes Grey junto de famílias da pequena nobreza da Inglaterra. Seu estilo simples e prosaico impulsiona a narrativa de uma maneira suave, mas rítmica, que continuamente deixa o leitor querendo saber mais. Estudos e comentários da irmã Charlotte sugerem que o romance é amplamente baseado nas próprias experiências de Anne, que trabalhou como governanta por seis anos.

Book Short Summary:

La menor y menos conocida de las hermanas Brontë, Anne, logró reflejar con maestría en su primera novela a mediados del siglo XIX temas tan actuales como lo son la precariedad, el status social, el feminismo y el rol de la mujer, la moral, o la lucha interna por encontrar el lugar de uno (el lugar de una), en la sociedad. Este es un relato íntimo, autobiográfico, narrado a través de las distintas voces interiores con las que la protagonista, Agnes, nos va contando su vida como institutriz victoriana empleada por varias familias. Agnes, impulsada por la modesta situación económica de su familia, decide encontrar un empleo como institutriz, pese a la oposición de su madre y su hermana, que la consideran aún demasiado vulnerable y débil para enfrentarse al mundo laboral. "Aunque las riquezas tenían sus encantos, la pobreza no encerraba ningún terror para una joven sin experiencia como yo." Los personajes con los que se encuentra, los niños consentidos y crueles, y la justificación que de ellos hacen sus padres, ajenos al mundo y a la pobreza que rodea a las familias privilegiadas; su lucha interna por la falta de pertenencia: demasiado educada para relacionarse con la servidumbre, pero una empleada al fin y al cabo que tampoco puede interactuar libremente con la familia, y sus cuestionamientos de la moral y la sociedad de la época victoriana, hacen que podamos encontrar una identificación y una vigencia actual de su relato aún en el día y el momento actual del siglo XXI en que nos encontramos hoy. Anne Brontë (1820-1849) fue una novelista inglesa y la hermana menor de las novelistas Charlotte y Emily Brontë

Book Short Summary:

“¡Qué maravilloso sería convertirse en una institutriz! Salir al mundo...ganar mi propio sustento... ¡Enseñar a madurar a los jóvenes!” Éste es el sueño de la hija de un modesto vicario, un ideal de independencia económica y personal, y de entrega a una noble tarea como la educación. Una vez cumplido, sin embargo, los personajes de este sueño se revelan más bien como monstruos de pesadilla: niños brutales, jovencitas intrigantes y casquivanas, padres grotescos, madres mezquinas e indulgentes...y en medio de todo ello la joven soñadora, tratada poco menos que como una criada. Agnes Grey (1847), primera novela de Anne Brontë, es una árida revelación basada en experiencias autobiográficas del precario status, material y moral, de una institutriz victoriana; y constituye a la vez un relato íntimo, casi secreto, de amor y humillación, en el que el “yo más severo” y el “yo más vulnerable” sostiene una dramática batalla bajo lo que la propia heroína define como el “sombrío tinte del mundo inferior, mi propio mundo”.

Der historische Roman "Agnes Grey" zeigt die berufliche Entwicklung einer Frau unter den begrenzten Möglichkeiten des Viktorianischen Zeitalters. Als Gouvernante kann Agnes zwar ihren Lebensunterhalt selbst erwirtschaften und wird unabhängiger, leidet jedoch unter den strengen gesellschaftlichen Konventionen und der Aggressivität ihrer Ziehkinder.

Book Short Summary:

If you have at all dabbled in classic English literature, you may have had a hard time telling Charlotte from Emily, so now when a third sister, Anne, enters the fray, we understand if you're experiencing complete Brontë déjà-vu. With its official subtitle "A Novel" and "Agnes Grey" itself sounding like the nickname of a retirement home patron who's at least 50% dust, Anne's somewhat drab title game might come down to this being her debut novel. A semi-autobiographical piece, "Agnes Grey" tells the story of the titular character after her family falls on hard times and everybody has to chip in. Taking the position of governess in multiple houses with questionable success, Anne eventually meets Mr. Weston and suddenly everything becomes much more bearable. A proper Christian...ish Victorian novel peppered with poignant social commentary, "Agnes Grey" is about puritan minister's daughters with immoral girlfriends, dashing yet prudent bachelors, spoiled, punchable children and elbow-centered scenes of passion. Thus you probably already know if this book is down your alley, but if you need the final push, Irish author George Moore described the debut as "the most perfect prose narrative in English letters". Anne Brontë (1820-1849) was the youngest of the Brontë sisters, who wrote only two novels during her short, but influential lifetime. The difference with Anne is that she chose to write with a lot of irony and sarcasm, unlike the romantic aspirations of her older sisters. She also published her novels and poems under a male name. Best remembered for "Agnes Grey" and "The Tenant of Wildfell Hall".

The style of the book epitomizes Kafkas writing.

Book Short Summary:

With her final novel, Villette, Charlotte Brontë reached the height of her artistic power. First published in 1853, Villette is Brontë's most accomplished and deeply felt work, eclipsing even Jane Eyre in critical acclaim. Her narrator, the autobiographical Lucy Snowe, flees England and a tragic past to become an instructor in a French boarding school in the town of Villette. There she unexpectedly confronts her feelings of love and longing as she witnesses the fitful romance between Dr. John, a handsome young Englishman, and Ginerva Fanshawe, a beautiful coquette. The first pain brings others, and with them comes the heartache Lucy has tried so long to escape. Yet in spite of adversity and disappointment, Lucy Snowe survives to recount the unstinting vision of a turbulent life's journey - a journey that is one of the most insightful fictional studies of a woman's consciousness in English literature.

Book Short Summary:

This carefully crafted ebook: “Jane Eyre + Wuthering Heights (2 Unabridged Classics)” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Charlotte Brontë's most beloved novel describes the passionate love between the courageous orphan Jane Eyre and the brilliant, brooding, and domineering Rochester. The loneliness and cruelty of Jane's childhood strengthens her natural independence and spirit, which prove invaluable when she takes a position as a governess at Thornfield Hall. But after she falls in love with her sardonic employer, her discovery of his terrible secret forces her to make a heart-wrenching choice. Ever since its publication in 1847, Jane Eyre has enthralled every kind of reader, from the most critical and cultivated to the youngest and most unabashedly romantic. It lives as one of the great triumphs of storytelling and as a moving and unforgettable portrayal of a woman's quest for self-respect. Born into a poor family and raised by an oppressive aunt, young Jane Eyre becomes the governess at Thornfield Manor to escape the confines of her life. There her fiery independence clashes with the brooding and mysterious nature of her employer, Mr. Rochester. But what begins as outright loathing slowly evolves into a passionate romance. When a terrible secret from Rochester's past threatens to tear the two apart, Jane must make an impossible choice: Should she follow her heart or walk away and lose her love forever? Considered by many to be Charlotte Brontë’s masterpiece, Jane Eyre chronicles the passionate love between the independent and strong-willed orphan Jane Eyre and the dark, impassioned Mr. Rochester. Having endured a lonely and cruel childhood, orphan Jane Eyre, who is reared in the home of her heartless aunt prior to attending a boarding school with an equally torturous regime, is strengthened by these experiences. The natural independence and unbroken spirit she emerges with allows her to thrive as a governess at Thornfield Hall. It is only after she falls in love with her employer and discovers his explosive secret that she is forced to return to the poverty and isolation of her past. Wuthering Heights is the only published novel by Emily Brontë, written between October 1845 and June 1846 and published in July of the following year. It was not printed until December 1847 under the pseudonym Ellis Bell, after the success of her sister Charlotte Brontë's novel Jane Eyre. A posthumous second edition was edited by Charlotte in 1850. It is one of the world's greatest tales of unrequited love, captivating readers with its intense passion and drama. A classic novel of consuming passions, played out against the lonely moors of northern England, recounts the turbulent and tempestuous love story. The title of the novel comes from the Yorkshire manor on the moors of the story. The narrative centres on the all-encompassing, passionate, but ultimately doomed love between Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff, and how this unresolved passion eventually destroys them and the people around them.

Book Short Summary:

Dans le nord de l’Angleterre, au début du XIXe siècle, la jeune Agnès Grey est élevée loin des remous du monde par des parents aimants. Lorsque le père, pasteur de son état, perd toutes ses économies à la suite d’un placement douteux, Agnès décide de s’engager comme gouvernante dans une première, puis une seconde famille aisée du Yorkshire. Désireuse de découvrir le monde, enthousiaste et patiente, mais peu expérimentée, elle va se heurter à la cruauté des enfants dont elle a la charge et au mépris de leurs parents. C’est en étant confrontée à la difficulté de sa condition, et en y faisant face, qu’Agnès va finalement s’éduquer elle-même. Paru en 1847, Agnès Grey s’inspire largement de l’expérience de son auteure, la benjamine des sœurs Brontë. À la fois roman d’apprentissage, éloge de la nature et peinture minutieuse de la société de l’époque, ce texte est une œuvre à part qui mérite d’être redécouverte pour elle-même. Traduction de Ch. Romey et A. Rolet. Édition de François Laroque.

Book Short Summary:

This new essay collection brings together some of the top Brontë scholars working today, as well as new critical voices, to examine the many layers of Anne Brontë's fiction and other writings and to restore Brontë to her rightful place in literary history. Until very recently, Brontë's literary fate has been to live in the critical shadow of her older sisters, Charlotte and Emily, in spite of the fact that her two published novels, Agnes Grey and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall were widely read and discussed during her lifetime. From a variety of fields-including psychology, religion, social criticism and literary tradition-the contributors to New Approaches to the Literary Art of Anne Brontë re-assess her works as those of an artist, which demand the rigorous scholarship and attention that they receive here.
