With an Introduction and Notes by Dr Sally Minogue, Department of English, Canterbury Christ Church University College.
Based on Charlotte Brontë'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.
