Villette, Paperback
5 out of 5 (1 rating)


With an Introduction and Notes by Dr Sally Minogue, Department of English, Canterbury Christ Church University College.

Based on Charlotte Bronte's personal experience as a teacher in Brussels, Villette is a moving tale of repressed feelings and subjection to cruel circumstance and position, borne with heroic fortitude.

Rising above the frustrations of confinement within a rigid social order, it is also the story of a woman's right to love and be loved.

You feel you are actually in this school. And all that repressed feeling...... An all-time favourite.
