Description - The Professor, by Charlotte Bronte

'She was not handsome, she was not rich, she was not even accomplished, yet she was my life's treasure; I must then be a man of peculiar discernment.' Working as a professor in M.Pelet's establishment in Brussels, William Crimsworth meets the fascinating Directrice of the neighbouring school, Mlle Zoraide Reuter, and, recognizing her as an intellectual equal, becomes powerfully attracted to her. Despite her betrothal to M. Pelet, Mlle Reuter will not release her hold over William, and she tries to stand in the way of his finding love elsewhere. But new possibilities open up to him and he is not to be easily deterred. Published two years after the author's death, The Professor draws on Charlotte Bronte's own professional and personal experiences as a teacher in Brussels. Like Jane Eyre and Vilette this novel is the intimate first-person account of a life that brings extremes of despair and joy.

Author Biography - Charlotte Bronte

Charlotte Bronte was born at Thornton, Yorkshire, in 1816. Her mother died in 1821, and Charlotte, her four sisters, Maria, Elizabeth, Emily and Anne, and her brother Branwell were left in the care of their aunt, Elizabeth Branwell. Left to pursue their education mainly at home, all the Bronte children became involved in a rich fantasy life and Charlotte and Branwell collaborated in the invention of the imaginary kingdom of Angria. In 1824 Charlotte went with Maria, Elizabeth and Emily to a school for daughters of the clergy; her experiences there are fictionalized in the Lowood section of Jane Eyre (1847; written under the pseudonym of Currer Bell). She wrote three other novels, Shirey (1849) Vilette (1853) and She Professor (published posthumously in 1857). She also made occasional visits to London where she became known to various writers, including William Thackeray and Elizabeth Gaskell. In 1854 Charlotte finally overcame her father's objections and married, but unfortunately she was to die in the following year.
