This book collects a selection of contributions to the study of "Villette" in the last 20 years from critics such as Kate Millett, Terry Eagleton, Mary Jacobus, Sandra Gilbert and Susan Gubar. It offers a range of theoretical perspectives, setting feminist, Marxist, post-structuralist and new historicist readings against more traditional accounts of the novel. It also provides an extended introduction, context notes for each essay and an annotated bibliography to help acquaint the reader both with the central critical issues raised by Bronte's text and with the important new developments in literary critical theory.
PAULINE NESTOR is Senior Lecturer in English at Monash University, Australia.
