The Professor (Jefferson Classic Edition)

( 18 )

Overview

This little book was written before either "Jane Eyre" or "Shirley," and yet no indulgence can be solicited for it on the plea of a first attempt. A first attempt it certainly was not, as the pen which wrote it had been previously worn a good deal in a practice of some years. I had not indeed published anything before I commenced "The Professor," but in many a crude effort, destroyed almost as soon as composed, I had got over any such taste as I might once have had for ornamented and redundant composition, and ...

Overview

This little book was written before either "Jane Eyre" or "Shirley," and yet no indulgence can be solicited for it on the plea of a first attempt. A first attempt it certainly was not, as the pen which wrote it had been previously worn a good deal in a practice of some years. I had not indeed published anything before I commenced "The Professor," but in many a crude effort, destroyed almost as soon as composed, I had got over any such taste as I might once have had for ornamented and redundant composition, and come to prefer what was plain and homely. At the same time I had adopted a set of principles on the subject of incident, &c., such as would be generally approved in theory, but the result of which, when carried out into practice, often procures for an author more surprise than pleasure.

    Fairly Predictable

    Although this is a well written novel, it is fairly predictable in its plot line and characters. It seems to rush over significant events while dwelling on seemingly unimportant details such as location, clothing, etc. However, in spite of this, it is a nice, quick read, good to take on a plane or while waiting in line.

    A let dowm

    THis books was rather boring because it was basically all descriptions of characters and the main character is a very likable one and neither is the girl he falls in love with I think Bronte had a good idea for a story then got tired after all her character descriptions and decided to slcak off on the rest of the book
    but ill give her credit it was her very first book and was kinda good in a weird way
    i am stil a charlotte bronte fan no matter what

    Interesting edition to your Bronte library

    Charlotte Bronte was a mastermind, and while her first novel was not as good as Jane Eyre, it was still an enjoyable read. It is nice to see how she developed as an author.
