The Professor Paperback / softback

Edited by Margaret Smith, Herbert Rosengarten

Part of the Oxford World's Classics series

Paperback / softback

Description

The Professor (1845-6), written before Jane Eyre, challenged contemporary expectations of the novel by its brevity, realism, and insistence on a working career both before and after marriage for its hero and heroine.

Strikingly up to date for its period, the action begins against a background of the fight for better factory conditions in the 1830s, and finishes in the early 1840s with the spread of liberal ideas which led to the continentalrevolutions of 1848. This edition is based directly on the author's fair copy manuscript, and also includes `Emma', Charlotte Bronte's last, unfinished attempt to write a novel after Villette.

ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe.

Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.
