The Brontës were a nineteenth-century literary family associated with the village of Haworth in the West Riding of Yorkshire, England. The sisters, Charlotte (born 21 April 1816), Emily (born 30 July 1818), and Anne (born 17 January 1820), are well known as poets and novelists. They originally published their poems and novels under masculine pseudonyms, following the custom of the times practised by female writers. Their stories immediately attracted attention, although not always the best, for their passion and originality. Charlotte’s Jane Eyre was the first to know success, while Emily’s Wuthering Heights, Anne’s The Tenant of Wildfell Hall and other works were later to be accepted as masterpieces of literature.
Agnes Grey is the debut novel of English author Anne Brontë, first published in December 1847, and republished in a second edition in 1850. The novel follows Agnes Grey, a governess, as she works in several bourgeois families. Scholarship and comments by Anne’s sister Charlotte Brontë suggest the novel is largely based on Anne Brontë’s own experiences as a governess for five years. Like her sister Charlotte’s novel Jane Eyre, it addresses what the precarious position of governess entailed and how it affected a young woman.
Agnes Grey in French:
Agnes Grey est le premier des deux romans d’Anne Brontë. Publié en décembre 1847 sous le pseudonyme d’Acton Bell, le roman est fondé sur la propre expérience d’Anne comme gouvernante, et présente certains rapports stylistiques avec les œuvres de Jane Austen, plus importants que dans les textes suivants. Comme Jane Eyre, de sa sœur Charlotte (publié en octobre 1847), le livre décrit la position précaire des gouvernantes et la façon dont les jeunes femmes exerçant cette profession en sont affectées.
Jane Eyre /ˈɛər/ is a novel by English writer Charlotte Brontë. It was published in London, England, in 1847 by Smith, Elder & Co. with the title Jane Eyre. An Autobiography under the pen name “Currer Bell.” The first American edition was released the following year by Harper & Brothers of New York. Writing for the Penguin edition, Stevie Davies describes it as an “influential feminist text” because of its in-depth exploration of a strong female character’s feelings.
The Tenant of Wildfell Hall:
The Tenant of Wildfell Hall is the second and final novel by English author Anne Brontë, published in 1848 under the pseudonym Acton Bell. Probably the most shocking of the Brontës’ novels, this novel had an instant phenomenal success but after Anne’s death her sister Charlotte prevented its re-publication.
Les Hauts de Hurlevent in French:

Il est cité par William Somerset Maugham en 1954, dans son essai Ten Novels and Their Authors (Dix romans et leurs auteurs) parmi les dix plus grands romans.
