    With a specially commissioned Introduction and Notes by Kathryn White, Assistant Curator / Librarian of the Bronte Museum, Haworth, Yorkshire.

    This novel is a trenchant expose of the frequently isolated, intellectually stagnant and emotionally-starved conditions under which many governesses worked in the mid-19th century.

    This is a deeply personal novel written from the author's own experience and as such Agnes Grey has a power and poignancy which mark it out as a landmark work of literature dealing with the social and moral evolution of English society during the last century.

    Anne Bronte (1820-1849), the sister of Charlotte and Emily, was the youngest of six children and is best known for her novels 'Agnes Grey' and 'The Tenant of Wildfell Hall'.
