Charlotte Bronts last and most autobiographical novel,Villetteexplores the inner life of a lonely young Englishwoman, Lucy Snowe, who leaves an unhappy existence in England to become a teacher in the capital of a fictional European country. Drawn to the schools headmaster, Lucy must face the pain of unrequited love and the question of her place in society. ForVillette, Bront drew upon her own experiences ten years earlier, when she studied in Brussels and developed an unreciprocated passion for her married teacher. The novel also reflects her devastating sense of loss and isolation after the deaths of her beloved brother and sisters, and her confusion and conflicts over the fame she achieved for having writtenJane Eyre. But despite Bronts heartsick inspiration for the novel, and the grief that haunts its heroine,Villetteis a story of triumph, in which Lucy Snowe comes to understand and appreciate her own strength and value. Celebrated by George Eliot and Virginia Woolf for its strikingly modern psychological depth and examination of womens roles,Villetteis now recognized as Charlotte Bronts masterpiece, surpassing evenJane Eyre.
