      2010 I haven t read this in years and had forgotten how much I like it It s far restrained than her sisters novels, yet the treatment Agnes receives from her employers, the way they deny her equality and humanity because she s only a governess, is as horrifying in its own way as anything suffered by Charlotte s Jane Eyre On this reading, I especially noticed also Anne s quiet wit, rather akin to Austen s, and her feeling for nature and the outdoors, akin to her sister Emily s.

      Hum, I m sceptical Is there a moral here, or is Agnes just a saint for being perfectly meek and putting up with the antics of a whole gallery of awful people She also seems to be a terrible governess since she can barely make any change to the despicable characters and habits of her charges, and hardly improves their education It just sounds like Anne is telling us that bad people will be bad and there s nothing at all to be done about that as the poet said.The last couple of chapters brought in [...]

      OMG So bore SO BORE.There are a couple of really great scenes, mostly with the various types of monstrous kids, but I found Agnes herself so uninteresting I just couldn t get invested, or engage with her various moralistic concerns and the revenge of the nerds style plot You know the one where the plain introvert governess wants to get with the popular kid at school curate Says nothing, but still beats the good looking jock her student, and gets with the popular kid curate while the jock student [...]
