There is something almost preternatural in its power. With her final novel, Villette , Charlotte Bronte reached the height of her artistic power.
Her narrator, the autobiographical Lucy Snowe, flees England and a tragic past to become an instructor in a French boarding school in the town of Villette. There, she unexpectedly confronts her feelings of love and longing as she witnesses the fitful romance between Dr. John, a handsome young Englishman, and Ginerva Fanshawe, a beautiful coquetter.
This first pain brings others, and with them comes the heartache Lucy has tried so long to escape. Left by harrowing circumstances to fend for herself in the great capital of a foreign country, Lucy Snowe, the narrator and heroine of Villette , achieves by degrees an authentic independence from both outer necessity and inward grief.
