      Every time I finish a Charlotte Bronte novel, my heart pounds and my mind is disoriented After reaching the end of her stories, closing her pages for the last time, and remembering the long passages written out in long hand, it s all like slowly surfacing from the depths of another world, and you re back home in reality, not quite sure you want to be there Although it doesn t have the exquisite tragedy of Villette or the kick ass karate chop combos of romance, ghosts, crazy ladies in the attic, [...]

      Mr William Crimsworth, newly graduated from exclusive Eton College, writes a letter to his one and only friend Charles, about his adventures since both left the school Charles never receives it, having departed for parts unknown William late mother was an aristocrat, but having married beneath her, had been shunned by her family, something common in the unforgiving, mid 19th century England His father was a wealthy businessman until going bankrupt, also deceased What to do William, has an older [...]

      I think the best way of approaching this book is to look at is a learning curve for the author The prose inJane Eyreis sophisticated and eloquent it is developed and persuasive it is powerful, and a points simply beautiful Charlotte s writing in this just isn t at the same level Perhaps it is because she writes from the perspective of male, a rather bland one at that The point is there is little point to this book.Jane Eyreis rich in passion and argument Charlotte was trying to make a point she [...]

    4. Barry Pierce on said:

      Charlotte s first attempt at a novel comes across as well an attempt It can be clearly seen that elements from this novel reappear in both Jane Eyre and Villette However this novel pretty much lacks everything that made both of those novels such classics It s a basic 19th century romance novel with Charlotte this time writing from a male POV Even though this is the second shortest Bront novel Agnes Grey is the shortest it still felt vastly overlong While bits of humour seep in now and again, lea [...]

      In the midst of life, we are in death.Charlotte Bront died untimely, three weeks before her 39th birthday The Professor, the first novel Charlotte had written, was published posthumously in 1857 A man is master of himself to a certain point, but not beyond it Orphaned in infancy, William Crimsworth had been supported meagerly by his deceased mother s aristocratic brothers Upon his graduation from Eton, William parts away, in contempt for his abhorrent uncles and seeks employment from his tyranni [...]

    6. Cheryl Kennedy on said:

      This is Charlotte Bronte s first novel She chose to write in a male voice with his concerns for a livelihood, his freedom to choose a vocation, authority to insist on compensation, and his refusal to accept and believe disrespectful pronouncements from others His search for the employment that suited his soul continued his meeger existence, but his freedom to persist was unlike the females of the time It is for these reasons that Bronte chose a male persona for her debut In 1846 the antithesis w [...]

      What if Jane Eyre had been written from the point of view of Rochester Would he have seemed manipulative, self centered Would readers have allowed themselves to be swept away by Jane s passion, and to desire its fruition In The Professor, Charlotte Bronte narrates the tale from the viewpoint of the male protagonist, and I must confess to finding him frequently unsympathetic Without seeing this character from the eyes of his affection s object, it is difficult to appreciate him He too often com [...]

    8. Paul on said:

      Very early effort which reads like a practice run for later novels like Villette and Jane Eyre which reminds me, I must read Villette again It is an engaging first person narrative in which William Crimsworth describes his young adulthood and his attempts to earn his living.We learn about his grim family and Bronte uses her experience teaching in Brussels when Crimsworth moves there to teach Most of the novel revolves around Brussels and the world of the small teaching establishments The novel d [...]

    9. J.G. Keely on said:

      This book starts off promisingly enough, but as the character grows less sympathetic and the plot draws out predictably, much of the charm is lost Perhaps it was not unexpected that I would be drawn into the plight of a young, educated man thrust out alone into the world with no prospects, forced to work pointless jobs for frustratingly inept employers for subsistence It mirrors not only my experiences, but that of most of my generation.Unfortunately, our narrator becomes a rather stuck up prig [...]

    10. Dolors on said:

      The first novel by Charlotte Bront , though not published until her death It has been reviewed as a simple, unimaginative portrait of an English teacher s life in Brussels, an early attempt to what her best known novel Villette would later become.I don t agree.This work shines in itself, it s the only story in which Charlotte dares to talk through a man s voice She talks about responsibility, about earning your own success through effort and sacrifice, to defy the strict clich s and the hypocris [...]

    11. Joseph on said:

      My first Charlotte Bronte book and again I wonder how I could have missed this book or ignored this author for so long Although Anne is still my favorite in the early part of my reading, Charlotte s The Professor follows the same form of story telling The major characters are well developed and likable or unlikable as the case maybe Minor characters are not developed, such as William s friend Charles.William is the main character, an Englishman with an education who rejecting going into the cler [...]

      3.5 stars.While this is the last of Bronte s novels to be published, it s the first one that she wrote, and it shows There are hints in the writing of the wonderfulness to come in Jane Eyre, and there are plenty of typical Bronte touches she really did love her phrenology, didn t she in the writing Really, I think the biggest problem with this is that it s really short Like, 200 pages kind of short And the first 50 ish pages is basically MY LIFE IS SHIT, OKAY Once William gets to Belgium, we re [...]

    13. Luís C. on said:

      It is a very nice novel who genuinely devours I found again the pleasure of reading a book featuring young men up the sleeves facing adversity I can not prevent me from read it something personal and soak up their energy and their hope Bront is probably projected in his female heroine.We finally found this vision of the boarding school as both a closed place subject to the tyranny of its leader and as an idyllic place.3 1 2 Stars.

    14. Furqan on said:

      This was Charlotte Bronte s first novel and certainly not one of her finest works I can see why it was rejected by the publishers several times and was only published posthumously The novel is narrated in first person by the protagonist, William Crimsworth It is partly set in a fictional town of Yorkshire and the rest in the city of Brussels, Belgium.The story has a promising start, but plunges into monotony as it progresses The protagonist s opinion of the inhabitants of Brussels makes a really [...]

      Dok se Charlotte Bronte sigurno isti e svojim bogatim stilom i sposobno u da zorno prika e likove i mjesto radnje, ipak se vide neke stvari koje ukazuju da je rije o prvom romanu Vi e od polovine romana je usmjereno na prikazivanje glavnoga lika i njegovom potragom za poslom koji na kraju dobije postav i profesor zbog eka je djelo i nazvano Profesor, a mnogim itateljima bi se to u inilo prili no dosadnim Unato djelovima koji govore protiv predrasuda, kod glavnog lika se neprestano pojavljuje kar [...]

      The Professor is the first novel Charlotte Bronte ever wrote, but the last to published I feel like Charlotte was still searching for her own style when writing this story and I found it a bit less accomplished than the other novels I ve read from her, but that s to be expected And it s very entertaining nonetheless The main character being male brought a new view point to the book s setting as I ve pretty much only read about it from the women s point of view It was interesting to see how it mi [...]

      How wonderful it is to see a woman writing from a male perspective, and doing so with such authority, that we can simply nod in approbation The Professor belongs to, what I like to call, the Austen Bronte literary club, therefore, if one has experienced a novel belonging to the before mentioned group of socially and emotionally oppressed women, he she will have an inkling of what s to come The Professor , besides the male protagonist, bears few dissimilarities to its predecessors Apart that it s [...]

      I bought this when I was 16 I started reading it immediately when I bought it I am now 22, 6 years later, and I am still reading this To put it bluntly this book was horrible Not only is a good portion of it in France French, it was supposedly about a professor who falls in love with a student but I read 110 170 pages and that storyline didn t even start yet Really just a terrible book that I absolutely never recommend to anyone.

      La qualit della scrittura altissima, ed un piacere autentico leggere Charlotte Bront per questo motivo C tanta poesia, tanta profondit nelle sue descrizioni fisiche e psicologiche Come ha scritto Virginia Woolf Leggiamo Charlotte Bront non per la squisita osservazione del personaggio, non per la commedia, non per una visione filosofica della vita, ma per la poesia Concordo appieno con queste parole.Non ho dato le cinque stelline perch il personaggio maschile, William Crimsworth, non mi ha ispira [...]

    22. Pink on said:

      Loved this for the majority and I spent most of the novel wondering why everyone discounts it as one of her lessor works, or only praises it as a practice piece for Villette I lost a little of that love in the end, as Charlotte didn t seem to know when to stop and felt the need to wrap up her story with a happy ending and long explanation of married life I think she learned her lesson not to do that again Although sadly, perhaps this was the only time in her life when she thought such a happy ev [...]

      Telling the story of a professor who becomes involved with 2 women in 2 very unique ways, this is a truly wonderful Bronte novel I adore the way Charlotte writes and tells her tales There is always something so tangible about them Capturing themes of loneliness, love, friendship and being deceived amongst many, this novel is based on Charlotte s experiences of teaching and studying in Brussels I adored the descriptions of the streets and the how well she has captured this I have 2 negatives for [...]

      The Professor is in many ways the concentration of Bront , C s chief art it demonstrates that she could be really quite tedious even in fewer than 300 pages.We always have to give books of the Victorian era some licence The contemporary reader might raise an eyebrow when a phrase such as rich as a Jew crops up in a text, wince at the ingrained sexism of the time, or gloss over a wicked character described as dark skinned or looking suspiciously like a gypsy Hello, Bront , E , but we tend to let [...]

      Cosa sapevo io del carattere femminile, prima dell arrivo a Bruxelles Veramente poco E che idea ne avevo Qualcosa di vago, leggero, trasparente, scintillante Adesso, venutovi a contatto, trovavo che era una sostanza abbastanza palpabile Anche molto dura, a volte, e spesso pesante C era metallo dentro piombo e ferro Potrei perdonare a Charlotte Bront questo romanzo, se non avesse scritto Jane Eyre Ma non posso tacere, non posso non indignarmi per il confronto ingrato e inevitabile Potremmo bollar [...]
