Item description for Villette by Charlotte Bronte...

Villette (1853) by Charlotte Bront is the story of Englishwoman Lucy Snowe who ends up a teacher at a girls' pensionnat in Villette, the capital of Labassecour, a fictional French-speaking country on the continent.

Autobiographical in many ways, the novel shows stoic Lucy overcoming barriers of language, culture, complex psychological self-conflict, emotional torment, and falling in love. The character of M. Paul Emanuel is believed to have been based on Charlotte Bront's own impossible object of affection, the one and only true passion of her brief life -- Constantin Hger, the proprietor of the Brussels pensionnat where Charlotte taught.

More About Charlotte Bronte


Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Charlotte, Emily, and Anne Bronte were born in Yorkshire between 1816 and 1820. They wrote and shared stories from a young age, and in 1847, Charlotte's Jane Eyre and Emily's Wuthering Heights were both published. All three also worked as governesses and teachers, experiences that inspired Anne's The Tenant of Wildfell Hall (1848) and Charlotte's Villette (1853). They died in their twenties and thirties, leaving their father the only surviving family member.
