About the Author

Anne Bronte was the daughter of an impoverished clergyman of Haworth in Yorkshire, England. Considered by many critics as the least talented of the Bronte sisters, Anne wrote two novels. Agnes Grey (1847) is the story of a governess, and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall (1848), is a tale of the evils of mostrar mais drink and profligacy. Her acquaintance with the sin and wickedness shown in her novels was so astounding that Charlotte Bronte saw fit to explain in a preface that the source of her sister's knowledge of evil was their brother Branwell's dissolute ways. A habitue of drink and drugs, he finally became an addict. Anne Bronte's other notable work is her Complete Poems. Anne Bronte died in 1849. (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos

Anne was the youngest of the Brontë siblings. She worked as a governess and wrote stories and poetry with her sisters. Her literary reputation is based mainly on the two novels she published before her untimely death at age 29. Like her older sisters, she used a masculine-sounding pseudonym, Acton Bell, for publication of her writing because of 19th-century prejudice against female authors.

A decent read, but awfully predictable. The "romance" between Agnes and Mr. Weston wasn't exactly sizzling, but it was sweet.

I wish the middle had been much, much shorter. Very repetitive, and the protagonists were each over-the-top good or over-the-top bad. I was drawn in by the beginning section; it felt like it was going to be a slightly humorous family light comic novel. Bait & switch! It's PAMELA/CLARISSA all over again. But I'd try another Bronte.

For those who find reality boring, don't read this book. But for those who find awe in every moment, Agnes Grey is a masterpiece.

Agnes has big dreams and she wants to be a governess, able to shape young lives and make changes to her own family's financial situation. However, the career does not live up to her expectations and already she encounters difficult parents while tutoring their two children. The second family are easier but one of the children later has different views on marriage compared to Agnes, arguing their thoughts on the clergyman. Written under the pseudonym, Acton Bell, Anne Brontë demonstrates life and the difference in status in the 19th Century while providing readers insight from Agnes's perspective.
