Written when she was twenty-six, Agnes Grey is Anne Bronte's first novel. It tells the story of a rector's daughter who has to earn her living as a governess. Drawing directly from her own experiences, Anne Bronte set out to describe the immense pressures that the governess' life involved: the frustration, the isolation, and the insensitive and cruel treatment on the part of employers and their families. Mature, insightful, and edged with a quiet irony, this debut displays a keen sense of moral responsibility and a sharp eye for bourgeois attitudes and behavior.
