Agnes Grey By Anne Brontë
eBook (ePub): $1.55
Published in December 1847 under the pseudonym Acton Bell, Agnes Grey was the first of two novels by Anne Brontë. It details the experiences of the eponymous character, the daughter of a... More > minister employed as a governess, and moving between rich houses of the Bloomfields and the Murrays. The novel is in most respects autobiographical, drawn from Anne’s own experiences employed as a governess at the Robinson household for five years with the only real fictional aspect being the resolution through a love interest. Agnes Grey has been variously described as a masterwork of prose narration and, in comparison to the work of Anne’s sisters, something necessarily mundane.

More > respectable and intelligent young woman to do: you were either wealthy and had governesses to care for your children, or you were, well, a governess yourself. Such was Anne's life, and the life of her protagonist. Agnes goes to work for two families, the Bloomfields and the Murrays, who are not so much the virtuous Victorian bourgeois, but are the corrupt and callous, but aren't If one were to read the novel for its realistic depiction of life as a governess, it's an incredibly accurate account: the spoiled kids, the sneering servants, the aloof parents with their yapping dogs. If one were to look at Agnes Grey with contemporary eyes, one could see her as a nanny working for a rich couple today in London or New York of today.< Less
