Jane Eyre ranks as one of the greatest and most popular works of English fiction. Although Charlotte Bronte's heroine is outwardly plain, she possesses an indomitable spirit, and great courage. Forced to battle against the exigencies of a cruel guardian, a harsh employer and a rigid social order when she becomes governess to the daughter of the mysterious, sardonic Mr Rochester. Villette is based on Charlotte Bronte's personal experience as a teacher in Brussels. Rising above the confinement of a rigid social order, it is the story of a woman's right to love and be loved. Wuthering Heights is Emily Bronte's wild, passionate tale of the intense love between Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff, a foundling adopted by Catherine's father. Agnes Grey is Anne Bronte's trenchant expose of the frequently isolated, intellectually stagnant and emotionally starved conditions under which many governesses worked in the mid-nineteenth century. The Tenant of Wildfell Hall is a powerful and sometimes violent novel of expectation, love, oppression, sin and betrayal. It portrays the disintegration of the marriage of Helen Huniingdon, the mysterious 'tenant' of the title, and her dissolute, alcoholic husband.
