Published in 1843, four years after Shirley, Villette was Charlotte Bronte’s last novel and arguably the most autobiographic. Essentially a re-write of her first, unpublished story, The... More > Professor, it details the progress of the main protagonist, Lucy Snowe through an impressionable teenage period and then onto seeking employment in a fictional country that is based on Belgium. Securing a job in a boarding school a series of narrative developments and a plot twist kept hidden leads to a love interest in the shape of M. Paul Emanuel. Interestingly, whether this resolves into marriage at the end is left ambiguous. Given what it followed, hindsight is sufficient to know that Villette could never have reached the heights of other Bronte novels and though there are familiar motifs and new additions such as Lucy’s difficulties in learning French – certainly drawn from real-life parallels – the themes are by now well worn.< Less

The child is a peculiar little thing and soon develops a deep devotion for the older Graham, who showers her with attention until her stay is cut short when her father comes to take her away.< Less

Villette is not as often read as Jane Eyre. Many readers, even those who admire Brontë, have no idea she wrote more than one novel. Villette often languishes unread on library shelves, attended... More > to only by graduate students or literary scholars. Villette is in many ways a difficult novel. There is nothing immediately accessible about the heroine, Lucy Snowe, and the darkness of despair always seems to be lurking under the surface of the narrative, even during happy episodes. The extreme caginess of the narrator, and her unreliability, make the novel different in many ways not only from Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre but also many other novels from that time period. Brontë was exploring the literary ideas of point of view and first-person narration, but her work is not experimental. It is masterful in its execution, yet it is not what readers usually expect from a Victorian Gothic novel. ISBN: 978-1-105-09779-9< Less
