Description

While I acknowledge the success of the present work to have been greater than I anticipated, and the praises it has elicited from a few kind critics to have been greater than it deserved, I must also admit that from some other quarters it has been censured with an asperity which I was as little prepared to expect, and which my judgment, as well as my feelings, assures me is more bitter than just.

    The novel itself is interesting enough: the plot mostly related in the form of letters from the protagonist, the latter half made of his lover's diary. But the prose is awkward and stilted, the protagonist too effeminate and easy to hate. Were she not a Brontë sister I doubt anyone would know of this or Agnes Gray - as the introduction points out. One review said her "perfect prose" is as good as Austen's! No, not remotely, but fans of the other sisters and this period of literature will like it, or at least labor through to find out what happens to Gilbert and Helen, without feeling they've wasted too much time

    This book is absolutely amazing. A must-read for any lover of the Bronte sisters or English literature.
