by CHARLOTTE BRONTE
Mass Market Paperback: 496 pages
Publisher: Signet Classics (February 3, 2004)
Fleeing an unhappy past in England, penniless Lucy Snowe starts life anew at a boarding school in cosmopolitan Villette, a stand-in for Brussels. But the mysterious incidents involving jealousy and love that follow give Bronte's final novel much of the Gothic tone and psychological incisiveness that prompted George Eliot and Viginia Woolf, and others to call Villette her finest work.
Based on Bronte's own experiences in Brussels and her attachment to a brilliant teacher with a strong and eccentric personality, this superb romantic novel is an exceptional example of how a great writer transforms the ordinary events of her life into vivid and exciting art. Villette represents the inimitable Bronte genius by giving us a masterful portrait of Lucy Snowe, who belongs beside the great nineteenth-century literary heroines - and who will strongly appeal to modern readers.
