About this Recording

BRONTE, A.: Agnes Grey (Unabridged)

From its opening sentences Agnes Grey introduces a heroine who is honest, perceptive and charming. Unfortunately, the Bloomfields, who engage her as a governess, are rather less appealing, and the incarnation of the suppressed cruelties and hypocrisies of the Victorian age. When Agnes moves to a marginally less alarming family, one of her charges sets out to disrupt her only romantic hope.

Critical, satirical, direct, and honest, Agnes Grey is a fine reflection of its author.
