Agnes Grey

Penguin Classics
by Anne Bronte

Mass market paperback, 264 pages

Drawing on her own experiences, Anne Bronte wrote her first novel out of an urgent need to inform her contemporaries about the only 'respectable' career open to them—that of a governess. Struggling with the monstrous Bloomfield children and then disdained in the superior Murray household, Agnes tells a compelling story of life as a governess in Victorian households.
