    PDF Anne Brontë ½ ½ Agnes Grey ePUB ´ agnes epub, grey mobile, Agnes Grey ePUBIt pains me to only give this three stars mainly because of the tremendous respect I have for what the three Bronte sisters accomplished in their short lives and because Anne was overshadowed by her older sisters Charlotte and Emily Agnes Grey the first of Anne's two novels 1847 was overshadowed by Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre also published

    PDF Anne Brontë ½ ½ Agnes Grey ePUB ´ agnes epub, grey mobile, Agnes Grey ePUBHaving watched recently the film To Walk Invisible and having also finished not long ago Wuthering Heights while I was reading this I could not but imagine the two sisters Emily and Anne sitting around the same table either in the dining room or in the kitchen each leaning over a very small notebook and writing away their novels in silence Both sharing and not sharing; keeping each other’s company but also guarding the privacy of their thoughts and their writing from the other sisterAnd I wondered how was it possible that on the same table those two notebooks were filling with such different fiction How could these two sisters apparently so similar in character with the same upbringing and similar experiences produce such different works With Emily’s novel made me

    PDF Anne Brontë ½ ½ Agnes Grey ePUB ´ agnes epub, grey mobile, Agnes Grey ePUBMy favorite of the Brontes is Anne This is my favorite of her novelsIn this and Jane Eyre we have governess eye views of the gentry In Jane Eyre Jane manages to make herself central her suffering in being a governess; in Agnes Grey there is a meticulous look at the thin veneer of civilization over the soi disant gentry who have all the money and manner but utterly no moral center The examination of this family is one of the most effective pieces of uiet horror in literature I think because it resonates as true Far effective than Charlotte's madwoman in the attic histrionics Though those too smack of reality but not a reality known to Charlotte I blame Byron
