Based on the author's own experience, Agnes Grey explores the position of women in Victorian society through the story of a young woman forced to work as a governess when her father is ruined financially. It is a classic not just as a result of the subtle and ironic force of Anne Bronte's prose, but also because of the passionate indictment of social injustice which animates it.

Anne Brontë was born in 1820, the youngest of the Brontë family. She was educated at home in the Yorkshire village of Howarth, and later held two positions as a governess, difficult experiences which inspired her first novel, Agnes Grey, in 1847. This was followed by The Tenant of Wildfell Hall in 1848. Anne died of tuberculosis in 1849, aged twenty-nine.
