The tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Brontë( Book )

46 editions published between 1991 and 2008 in English and held by 1,442 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The mysterious new tenant of Wildfell Hall has a dark secret. But as the captivated Gilbert Markham will discover, it is not the story circulating among local gossips. Living under an assumed name, 'Helen Graham' is the estranged wife of a dissolute rake, desperate to protect her son from his destructive influence. Her diary entries reveal the shocking world of debauchery and cruelty from which she has fled. Combining a sensational story of a man's physical and moral decline through alcohol, a study of marital breakdown, a disquisition on the care and upbringing of children, and a hard-hitting critique of the position of women in Victorian society, this passionate tale of betrayal is set within a stern moral framework tempered by Anne Bronte's optimistic belief in universal redemption. Drawing on her first-hand experiences with her brother Branwell, Bronte's novel scandalized contemporary readers. It still retains its power to shock."--BOOK JACKET

Villette by Charlotte Brontë( Book )

42 editions published between 1984 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,010 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lucy Snowe, in flight from an unhappy past, leaves England and finds work as a teacher in Madame Beck's school in 'Villette'. Strongly drawn to the fiery autocratic schoolmaster Monsieur Paul Emanuel, Lucy is compelled by Madame Beck's jealous interference to assert her right to love and to be loved." "Based in part on Charlotte Bronte's experience in Brussels ten years earlier, Villette (1853) is coloured by her sadness and isolation after the deaths of her brother and sisters in 1848 and 1849, and by the traumatic circumstances of her subsequent emergence, alone, into public literary life. From these events Bronte fashions an autobiographical novel that is also a powerful examination of literary celebrity and female authorship in mid-Victorian Britain."--Jacket

Annotation
Villette. Oxford World's Classics( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I am only just returned to a sense of the real world about me, for I have been reading Villette, a still more wonderful book than Jane Eyre. Thus was George Eliot's response to Charlotte Bronte's dramatic Gothic exploration of a woman's rebellion against her constricting social environment. Set in a Belgian girls' school, it tells of Lucy Snowe's attraction to fiery, autocratic master Paul Emmanuel and headmistress, Madame Beck's jealous interference in their romance. The novel's blend of sombre vision and ironic and exuberant comedy make it especially appealing to the modern reader
