Penguin Clothbound Classics

€ 22.95

Part of Penguin's beautiful hardback Clothbound Classics series, designed by the award-winning Coralie Bickford-'smith, these delectable and collectible editions are bound in high-quality colourful, tactile cloth with foil stamped into the design.

With neither friends nor family, Lucy 'snowe sets sail from England to find employment in a girls' boarding school in the small town of Villette. There, she struggles to retain her self-possession in the face of unruly pupils, the hostility of headmistress Madame Beck, and her own complex feelings - first for the school's English doctor and then for the dictatorial professor Paul Emanuel. Drawing on her own deeply unhappy experiences as a governess in Brussels, Charlotte Brontë'sautobiographical novel, the last published during her lifetime, is a powerfully moving study of loneliness and isolation, and the pain of unrequited love, narrated by a heroine determined to preserve an independent spirit in the face of adverse circumstances.

Helen M.

Cooper's new introduction places the novel in the context of Brontë's life and career and argues for the importance of the novel as an exploration of imperialism.
