    Charlotte Brontë Heather Glen
    Charlotte Bront was a British novelist, the eldest out of the three famous Bront sisters whose novels have become standards of English literature See also Emily Bront and Anne Bront.Charlotte Bront was born in Thornton, Yorkshire, England, the third of six children, to Patrick Bront formerly Patrick Brunty , an Irish Anglican clergyman, and his wife, Maria Branwell In April 1820 the family moved a few miles to Haworth, a remote town on the Yorkshire moors, where Patrick had been appointed Perpetual Curate This is where the Bront children would spend most of their lives Maria Branwell Bront died from what was thought to be cancer on 15 September 1821, leaving five daughters and a son to the care of her spinster sister Elizabeth Branwell, who moved to Yorkshire to help the family.In August 1824 Charlotte, along with her sisters Emily, Maria, and Elizabeth, was sent to the Clergy Daughters School at Cowan Bridge in Lancashire, a new school for the daughters of poor clergyman which she would describe as Lowood School in Jane Eyre The school was a horrific experience for the girls and conditions were appalling They were regularly deprived of food, beaten by teachers and humiliated for the slightest error The school was unheated and the pupils slept two to a bed for warmth Seven pupils died in a typhus epidemic that swept the school and all four of the Bront girls became very ill Maria and Elizabeth dying of tuberculosis in 1825 Her experiences at the school deeply affected Bront her health never recovered and she immortalised the cruel and brutal treatment in her novel, Jane Eyre Following the tragedy, their father withdrew his daughters from the school.At home in Haworth Parsonage, Charlotte and the other surviving children Branwell, Emily, and Anne continued their ad hoc education In 1826 her father returned home with a box of toy soldiers for Branwell They would prove the catalyst for the sisters extraordinary creative development as they immediately set to creating lives and characters for the soldiers, inventing a world for them which the siblings called Angria The siblings became addicted to writing, creating stories, poetry and plays Bront later said that the reason for this burst of creativity was that We were wholly dependent on ourselves and each other, on books and study, for the enjoyments and occupations of life The highest stimulus, as well as the liveliest pleasure we had known from childhood upwards, lay in attempts at literary composition After her father began to suffer from a lung disorder, Charlotte was again sent to school to complete her education at Roe Head school in Mirfield from 1831 to 1832, where she met her lifelong friends and correspondents, Ellen Nussey and Mary Taylor During this period 1833 , she wrote her novella The Green Dwarf under the name of Wellesley The school was extremely small with only ten pupils meaning the top floor was completely unused and believed to be supposedly haunted by the ghost of a young lady dressed in silk This story fascinated Bront and inspired the figure of Mrs Rochester in Jane Eyre.Bront left the school after a few years, however she swiftly returned in 1835 to take up a position as a teacher, and used her wages to pay for Emily and Anne to be taught at the school However, teaching did not appeal to Bront and in 1838 she left Roe Head to become a governess to the Sidgewick family this was partly from a sense of adventure and a desire to see the world, and partly from financial necessity Charlotte became pregnant soon after her wedding, but her health declined rapidly and, according to Gaskell, she was attacked by sensations of perpetual nausea and ever recurring faintness She died, with her unborn child, on 31 March 1855, aged 38

    Every time I finish a Charlotte Bronte novel, my heart pounds and my mind is disoriented. After reaching the end of her stories, closing her pages for the last time, and remembering the long passages written out in long-hand, it's all like slowly surfacing from the depths of another world, and you're back home in reality, not quite sure you want to be there. Although it doesn't have the exquisite tragedy of Villette or the kick-ass karate-chop combos of romance, ghosts, crazy ladies in the attic [...]

    Mr. William Crimsworth, newly graduated from exclusive Eton College, writes a letter to his one and only friend Charles, about his adventures since both left the school ( Charles never receives it, having departed for parts unknown). William late mother was an aristocrat, but having married "beneath her," had been shunned by her family, something common in the unforgiving, mid 19th century England. His father was a wealthy businessman until going bankrupt, also deceased. What to do? William, has [...]

    I think the best way of approaching this book is to look at is a learning curve for the author. The prose inJane Eyreis sophisticated and eloquent; it is developed and persuasive: it is powerful, and a points simply beautiful. Charlotte’s writing in this just isn’t at the same level. Perhaps it is because she writes from the perspective of male, a rather bland one at that. The point is there is little point to this book.Jane Eyreis rich in passion and argument. Charlotte was trying to make a [...]

    Charlotte's first attempt at a novel comes across as well an attempt. It can be clearly seen that elements from this novel reappear in both Jane Eyre and Villette. However this novel pretty much lacks everything that made both of those novels such classics. It's a basic 19th-century romance novel with Charlotte this time writing from a male POV. Even though this is the second shortest Brontë novel (Agnes Grey is the shortest) it still felt vastly overlong. While bits of humour seep in now and a [...]

    In the midst of life, we are in death.Charlotte Brontë died untimely, three weeks before her 39th birthday. The Professor, the first novel Charlotte had written, was published posthumously in 1857.“A man is master of himself to a certain point, but not beyond it.” Orphaned in infancy, William Crimsworth had been supported meagerly by his deceased mother's aristocratic brothers. Upon his graduation from Eton, William parts away, in contempt for his abhorrent uncles and seeks employment from [...]

    This is Charlotte Bronte's first novel. She chose to write in a male voice with his concerns for a livelihood, his freedom to choose a vocation, authority to insist on compensation, and his refusal to accept and believe disrespectful pronouncements from others. His search for the employment that suited his soul continued his meeger existence, but his freedom to persist was unlike the females of the time. It is for these reasons that Bronte chose a male persona for her debut. In 1846 the antithes [...]

    What if Jane Eyre had been written from the point of view of Rochester? Would he have seemed more manipulative, more self-centered? Would readers have allowed themselves to be swept away by Jane's passion, and to desire its fruition? In The Professor, Charlotte Bronte narrates the tale from the viewpoint of the male protagonist, and I must confess to finding him frequently unsympathetic. Without seeing this character from the eyes of his affection's object, it is difficult to appreciate him. He [...]

    Very early effort which reads like a practice run for later novels like Villette and Jane Eyre (which reminds me, I must read Villette again). It is an engaging first person narrative in which William Crimsworth describes his young adulthood and his attempts to earn his living.We learn about his grim family and Bronte uses her experience teaching in Brussels when Crimsworth moves there to teach. Most of the novel revolves around Brussels and the world of the small teaching establishments. The no [...]

    This book starts off promisingly enough, but as the character grows less sympathetic and the plot draws out predictably, much of the charm is lost. Perhaps it was not unexpected that I would be drawn into the plight of a young, educated man thrust out alone into the world with no prospects, forced to work pointless jobs for frustratingly inept employers for subsistence. It mirrors not only my experiences, but that of most of my generation.Unfortunately, our narrator becomes a rather stuck-up pri [...]

    The first novel by Charlotte Brontë, though not published until her death. It has been reviewed as a simple, unimaginative portrait of an English teacher's life in Brussels, an early attempt to what her best known novel Villette would later become.I don't agree.This work shines in itself, it's the only story in which Charlotte dares to talk through a man's voice. She talks about responsibility, about earning your own success through effort and sacrifice, to defy the strict clichés and the hypo [...]

    My first Charlotte Bronte book and again I wonder how I could have missed this book or ignored this author for so long. Although Anne is still my favorite in the early part of my reading, Charlotte's The Professor follows the same form of story telling. The major characters are well developed and likable or unlikable as the case maybe. Minor characters are not developed, such as William's friend Charles.William is the main character, an Englishman with an education who rejecting going into the c [...]

    3.5 stars.While this is the last of Bronte's novels to be published, it's the first one that she wrote, and it shows. There are hints in the writing of the wonderfulness to come in Jane Eyre, and there are plenty of typical Bronte touches (she really did love her phrenology, didn't she??) in the writing. Really, I think the biggest problem with this is that it's really short. Like, 200 pages kind of short. And the first 50-ish pages is basically "MY LIFE IS SHIT, OKAY?". Once William gets to Bel [...]

    It is a very nice novel who genuinely devours. I found again the pleasure of reading a book featuring young men up the sleeves facing adversity: I can not prevent me from read it something personal and soak up their energy and their hope. Brontë is probably more projected in his female heroine.We finally found this vision of the boarding school as both a closed place subject to the tyranny of its leader and as an idyllic place.3 & 1/2 Stars.


    This was Charlotte Bronte's first novel and certainly not one of her finest works. I can see why it was rejected by the publishers several times and was only published posthumously. The novel is narrated in first person by the protagonist, William Crimsworth. It is partly set in a fictional town of Yorkshire and the rest in the city of Brussels, Belgium.The story has a promising start, but plunges into monotony as it progresses. The protagonist's opinion of the inhabitants of Brussels makes a re [...]

    رمان "پروفسور" نخستين اثر شارلوت برونته مي باشد كه بعد نگارش ازطرف ناشرين مورد قبول واقع نشد. در واقع بعد نگارش رمان جين اير، شارلوت برونته به شهرت رسيد و آثار وي مورد توجه قرار گرفت و اين اثر وي بعد مرگش لنتشار يافته است. در اين اثر بايد رماني ساده و روان مواجه هستيم كه سرنوشت ا [...]

    Dok se Charlotte Bronte sigurno ističe svojim bogatim stilom i sposobnošću da zorno prikaže likove i mjesto radnje, ipak se vide neke stvari koje ukazuju da je riječ o prvom romanu. Više od polovine romana je usmjereno na prikazivanje glavnoga lika i njegovom potragom za poslom koji na kraju dobije postavši profesor zbog čeka je djelo i nazvano Profesor, a mnogim čitateljima bi se to učinilo prilično dosadnim. Unatoč djelovima koji govore protiv predrasuda, kod glavnog lika se nepres [...]

    When the Bronte sisters handed over the manuscripts from their first books to be published, Charlotte had given this book. Unfortunately, however, while the books of her sisters eventually ended in the printing house, Charlotte's book was rejected and eventually it was not released until after her death. By finishing the reading I can say that I somehow understand this decision, of course it is not a bad book but it certainly does not show all the capabilities of the author. Charlotte wanted rec [...]

    The Professor is the first novel Charlotte Bronte ever wrote, but the last to published. I feel like Charlotte was still searching for her own style when writing this story and I found it a bit less accomplished than the other novels I´ve read from her, but that´s to be expected. And it´s very entertaining nonetheless. The main character being male brought a new view point to the book´s setting as I´ve pretty much only read about it from the women´s point of view. It was interesting to see [...]

    How wonderful it is to see a woman writing from a male perspective, and doing so with such authority, that we can simply nod in approbation. ''The Professor'' belongs to, what I like to call, the ''Austen/Bronte'' literary club, therefore, if one has experienced a novel belonging to the before mentioned group of socially and emotionally oppressed women, he/she will have an inkling of what's to come.''The Professor'', besides the male protagonist, bears few dissimilarities to its predecessors. Ap [...]

    I bought this when I was 16. I started reading it immediately when I bought it. I am now 22, 6 years later, and I am still reading this. To put it bluntly: this book was horrible. Not only is a good portion of it in France French, it was supposedly about a professor who falls in love with a student but I read 110/170 pages and that storyline didn't even start yet. Really just a terrible book that I absolutely never recommend to anyone.

    La qualità della scrittura è altissima, ed è un piacere autentico leggere Charlotte Brontë per questo motivo. C'è tanta poesia, tanta profondità nelle sue descrizioni fisiche e psicologiche. Come ha scritto Virginia Woolf: "Leggiamo Charlotte Brontë non per la squisita osservazione del personaggio, non per la commedia, non per una visione filosofica della vita, ma per la poesia."Concordo appieno con queste parole.Non ho dato le cinque stelline perché il personaggio maschile, William Crim [...]

    Loved this for the majority and I spent most of the novel wondering why everyone discounts it as one of her lessor works, or only praises it as a practice piece for Villette. I lost a little of that love in the end, as Charlotte didn't seem to know when to stop and felt the need to wrap up her story with a happy ending and long explanation of married life. I think she learned her lesson not to do that again. Although sadly, perhaps this was the only time in her life when she thought such a happy [...]

    Também aqui:oimaginariodoslivros.Gosto muito de ler romances, apesar de não ser o género que mais abunda na minha estante. Tenho sempre receio de apostar na leitura de romances, pois sei que é um género que eu gosto muito mas que nem sempre apresenta as características que eu mais aprecio neste género. Talvez por isso goste tanto de romance fantástico e romance histórico: não se resume a romance, mas com outros ingredientes para expandir a história e o ambiente. Quantas vezes não pro [...]

    Telling the story of a professor who becomes involved with 2 women in 2 very unique ways, this is a truly wonderful Bronte novel. I adore the way Charlotte writes and tells her tales. There is always something so tangible about them. Capturing themes of loneliness, love, friendship and being deceived amongst many, this novel is based on Charlotte's experiences of teaching and studying in Brussels. I adored the descriptions of the streets and the how well she has captured this. I have 2 negatives [...]

    “The Professor” is in many ways the concentration of Brontë, C's chief art; it demonstrates that she could be really quite tedious even in fewer than 300 pages.We always have to give books of the Victorian era some licence. The contemporary reader might raise an eyebrow when a phrase such as “rich as a Jew” crops up in a text, wince at the ingrained sexism of the time, or gloss over a wicked character described as dark-skinned or looking suspiciously like a gypsy (Hello, Brontë, E!), b [...]

    «Cosa sapevo io del carattere femminile, prima dell’arrivo a Bruxelles? Veramente poco. E che idea ne avevo? Qualcosa di vago, leggero, trasparente, scintillante. Adesso, venutovi a contatto, trovavo che era una sostanza abbastanza palpabile. Anche molto dura, a volte, e spesso pesante. C’era metallo dentro: piombo e ferro.»Potrei perdonare a Charlotte Brontё questo romanzo, se non avesse scritto Jane Eyre. Ma non posso tacere, non posso non indignarmi per il confronto ingrato e inevitabi [...]
