Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With neither friends nor family, Lucy Snowe sets sail from England to find employment in girls' boarding school in the small town of Villette. There she struggles to retain her self-possession in the face of unruly pupils, a headmistress who spies on her staff, and her own complex feelings--first for the school's English doctor and then for the dictatorial professor, Paul Emmanuel. Drawing on her own deeply unhappy experiences as a teacher in Brussels, Charlotte Bronte's last and most autobiographical novel is a powerfully moving look at isolation and the pain of unrequited love, narrated by a heroine determined to preserve an independent spirit in the face of adverse circumstances.

Synopsis:

Long overshadowed by Jane Eyre, Villette is widely admired as one of Charlotte Bront?'s finest works. This story of a young teacher at a girl's school in the city of Villette is a particular challenge for the young reader for it requires maturity of vision, a fine narrative sense ? and a command of French Mandy Weston, a newcomer to Naxos AudioBooks, tells the story magnificently.
