Details

Charlotte wasn’t the only one of the Brontë sisters to have earned her living as a governess and to have mined that experience to shape her fiction – before Jane Eyre was completed, Anne’s first work, Agnes Grey, was accepted for publication by Thomas Cautley Newby. In this talk we examine how Anne exposes the lonely and soul-destroying existence that was too often the lot of the governess in the mid-19th century, and arguably, with more realism than her sister.
