Item description for The Professor by Charlotte Bronte...
The Professor (1857) was Charlotte Bront's first and least regarded novel, rejected by all publishers during her lifetime and published posthumously by her widower A. B. Nicholls.
Charlotte herself defended the novel passionately. "I said to myself that my hero should work his way through life as I had seen real living men work theirs -- that he should never get a shilling he had not earned."
Indeed, William Crimsworth, the hero, is the self-made master of all his life's ambiguous fortune, including his career as a professor in Brussels, and his true love. Whatever the comparisons to Charlotte Bront's other, more popular novels, The Professor deserves a closer examination and a new reader perspective.

Charlotte, Emily, and AnneBronte 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.

They died in their twenties and thirties, leaving their father the only surviving family member.
