Who are you, Miss Snowe Who am I indeed? Perhaps a personage in disguise

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, an initially suspicious headmaster and her own complex feelings, first for the schools English doctor and then for the dictatorial professor Paul Emmanuel. Drawing on her own deeply unhappy experiences as a governess in Brussels, Charlotte Brontës last and most autobiographical novel is a powerfully moving study of isolation and the pain of unrequited love, narrated by a heroine determined to preserve an independent spirit in the face of adverse circumstances.

This edition includes a new introduction, which examines the novels social and historical context, a chronology of Brontës life and full explanatory notes.

I am only just returned to a sense of real wonder about me, for I have been reading Villette There is something preternatural about its power
- George Eliot
