PROFESSOR, THE

Synopsis

Unpublished at the time of her death, 'The Professor' is the first novel written by Charlotte Brontë, and the seed of her later books, 'Jane Eyre' (7377) and 'Villette' (8644). Told from the point of view of William Crimsworth, Bronte'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.
