The Professor

Synopsis

The hero of Charlotte Bront"e's first novel escapes a dreary clerkship in industrial Yorkshire by taking a job as a teacher in Belgium. There, however, his entanglement with the sensuous but manipulative Zora"ide Reuter, complicates his affections for a penniless girl who is both teacher and pupil in Reuter's school. Also included in this edition is Emma, Charlotte Bront"e's last, unfinished novel. Both works are drawn from the original Clarendon texts.
