Villette Summary

Villette (Collins Classics) by Charlotte Bronte

HarperCollins is proud to present its range of best-loved, essential classics.

'Sleep went quite away. I used to rise in the night, look round for her, beseech her earnestly to return. A rattle of the window, a cry of the blast only replied - Sleep never came!'

Based on Charlotte Bronte's own experiences as a governess in Brussels, her last novel tells the story of lonely Lucy Snowe who finds employment at a girls' boarding school in the town of Villette. Finding the students challenging and experiencing the pain of unrequited love for the first time, Lucy becomes increasingly isolated in a world governed by societal expectation and struggles to maintain her integrity in the face of her envious and watchful employer, Madame Beck.

About Charlotte Bronte

Much-loved English author Charlotte Bronte published her first semi-autobiographical novel about a governess, Jane Eyre in 1847. Despite her critique of society's treatment of impoverished women, Jane Eyre became an immediate literary classic which she later followed with her novels Shirley and Vilette.
