Overview
Charlotte Bronte's first ever book is a love story full of feeling and emotion told from a male viewpoint--a must read for Bronte fansThinly veiling her personal experiences, Bronte uses a male narrator in this autobiographically inspired romantic love story, making this a fascinating and unique read. With the action played out in dark boarding-school classrooms and windy streets, she weaves a tale of emotion, one that foresees the longer, better-known saga "Villette" that was to follow many years later. Fresh out of Eton, orphaned William Crimsworth finds himself in an unenviable situation--a clerk to his caddish mill-owner brother--until opportunity presents itself for a complete change of fortune. Crimsworth is offered a job in Brussels as a teacher in an all-girls boarding school, run by a M Pelet. Later headhunted to a better position by the beguiling Zoraide Reuter, Crimsworth believes himself slightly enamored with his new employer, only to discover her secretly and perfidiously engaged to M Pelet. His new position almost intolerable, Crimsworth finds solace in teaching Frances Henri, a young Swiss-English seamstress teacher with promising intelligence and ear for language. Mlle Reuter though, jealous of the young professor's obvious partiality, dismisses Frances from her position. Crimsworth, in despair, is forced to resign from the school and takes up a ghostly existence in Brussels, roaming the streets in the hopes of finding his Frances. An often neglected classic, this compellingly written novel is fascinating in its concern with gender issues, religion, and social class, making it a book still studied today.
