In 1847 Anne Bronte had her book published- Agnes Grey. Agnes is a governess in two different families and she often gets walked on by the parents of the children and by the pupils she’s there for.
I picture Agnes Grey riding a carriage and holding the reins of the horses with a momentum of constant restraint as she does with her emotions throughout the book.
She is consistent. The man she admires is that way too it seems. She’s an interesting critter and I enjoyed reading the book. I think the experiences in the book were her own since she was a governess. Here she is below in two different portraits.
1820-1849 is when she lived.She died of consumption/tuberculosis at only 29 yrs old!
