9780007920686: The Professor (Collins Classics)

Written before Jane Eyre, 'The Professor' challenged contemporary expectations in its brevity, realism and insistence on a working career before and after marriage for its hero and heroine. It begins against a background of the fight for better factory conditions in the 1830s.

From the Inside Flap:

The Professor was the first novel that Charlotte Brontë completed. Rejected by the publisher who took on the work of her sisters in 1846--Anne's Agnes Grey and Emily's Wuthering Heights--it remained unpublished until 1857, two years after Charlotte Brontë's death. Like Villette (1853), The Professor is based on her experiences as a language student in Brussels in 1842. Told from the point of view of William Crimsworth, the only male narrator that she used, the work formulated a new aesthetic that questioned many of the presuppositions of Victorian society. Brontë's hero escapes from a humiliating clerkship in a Yorkshire mill to find work as a teacher in Belgium, where he falls in love with an impoverished student-teacher, who is perhaps the author's most realistic feminist heroine. The Professor endures today as both a harbinger of Brontë's later novels and a compelling read in its own right.
    "The middle and latter portion of The Professor is as good as I can write," proclaimed Brontë. "It contains more pith, more substance, more reality, in my judgment, than much of Jane Eyre."
The Modern Library has played a significant role in American cultural life for the better part of a century. The series was founded in 1917 by the publishers Boni and Liveright and eight years later acquired by Bennett Cerf and Donald Klopfer. It provided the foun-dation for their next publishing venture, Random House. The Modern Library has been a staple of the American book trade, providing readers with affordable hard-bound editions of important works of liter-ature and thought. For the Modern Library's seventy-fifth anniversary, Random House redesigned the series, restoring as its emblem the running torchbearer created by Lucian Bernhard in 1925 and refurbishing jackets, bindings, and type, as well as inau-gurating a new program of selecting titles. The Modern Library continues to provide the world's best books, at the best prices.

About the Author:

One of the most important female writers of the nineteenth century, Charlotte Bronte is best known for her novel Jane Eyre, which was originally published under the pseudonym Currer Bell.

Descrizione libro HarperCollins Publishers, United Kingdom, 2012. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. UK ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book. HarperCollins is proud to present its incredible range of best-loved, essential classics. The Professor is Charlotte Bronte s first novel, reflecting her own experience of life in Brussels and published after her untimely death.

Writing from the point of view of orphaned young teacher, William Crimsworth - the sole male protagonist among Bronte s works - the author allows herself a freedom of action in love and will that reveals her character s loves, desires and ambitions as he forges a new life on his own terms in Brussels. William finds himself caught between the desire he feels for Zoraide Reuter, the beguiling head of the girls school where he teaches, and the gentle love he feels for one of his pupils, Frances Henri. Exploring questions of love, identity, freedom and independence, The Professor is an important work in the small opus that is Charlotte Bronte s significant contribution to English literature.
