    L'amour et l'indépendance de la jeune fille, les préséances sociales et les revanches sur le passé, l'attirance pour les idéaux généreux, les messages de la passion triomphant du temps et de l'espace, les flammes de la folie, tels sont quelques-uns des thèmes qui se détachent sur un fond d'observation à la Dickens et qui sont emportés par un grand souffle romanesque.

    "Il professore" fu il primo romanzo di Charlotte Brontë (pubblicato con lo pseudonimo di Currer Bell); fu però pubblicato dal marito dopo la sua morte, ritenendolo un materiale interessante e autonomo, anche se molto del suo contenuto era stato utilizzato dalla scrittrice nel suo ultimo romanzo, Villette. Infatti in entrambi questi romanzi l'autrice attinge alla sua esperienza di istitutrice in Belgio, in cui, ventiseienne, visse una storia d'amore con un suo professore. "Il professore" fu rifiutato dall'editore.

    Questo ultimo romanzo di Charlotte Bronte è da alcuni considerato il suo capolavoro; da molti la sua opera più matura sia come contenuti che come modernità di scrittura. "Villette" è il nome di una città immaginaria del continente dove una giovane donna inglese approda "in cerca di fortuna", si potrebbe dire, se in realtà la sua non fosse quasi una scelta obbligata, intrapresa per la necessità di sopravvivere e per la fuga da un deserto affettivo.

    One of the most passionate novels of its time, Jane Eyre derives its strength from the honesty and directness of its heroine. The first person narrative involves us right from the start, letting us into Jane’s thoughts as she matures from rebellious child to passionate woman. Notice how social snobbery is condemned – particularly in the character of Aunt Reed and the conditions at Lowood ‘Orphans Asylum’.

    The story of Villette is told in flashback by Lucy Snowe, who tells of the trials of her young self first in England, and then in Belgium. Charlotte Bronte does not paint a romantic picture of an unsupported woman's life - her heroine has to endure straitened circumstances, insecurity and humiliation. However, despite everything that happens to her, Lucy is a warm and courageous character who makes the most of the opportunities that occur.
