9780140620771: Villette (Penguin Popular Classics)

Left by harrowing circumstances to fend for herself in the great capital of a foreign country, Lucy Snowe, the narrator and heroine of "Villette", achieves by degrees an authentic independence from both outer necessity and inward grief.

Review:

"Kate Lawson's edition of Villette is expansive and precise, like the novel it contextualizes and introduces so well. Providing a rich analysis of the complex themes of the novel, the introduction at once acknowledges and limns the text's resistance to codification and carefully suggests the beautiful patterns in its seeming inconsistencies. The primary materials provide further context for the novel, particularly in regards to the 'Woman Question.' Arranged to be in dialogue with each other about this pivotal topic, these materials provide the background necessary for understanding the novel's involvement with those discussions."--Gail Turley Houston

About the Author:

Much-loved English author Charlotte Brontë published her first semi-autobiographical novel about a governess, Jane Eyre in 1847. Despite her critique of society’s treatment of impoverished women, Jane Eyre became an immediate literary classic which she later followed with her novels Shirley and Vilette.
