Example text

Mina Laury (January 1838) and Henry Hastings February - March 1839) both have a governess heroine, although, as Charlotte - unlike Mina - did not have an aristocratic lover, it is probably a mistake to read too much into the description of Elizabeth Hasting's drunken brother Henry; this need not be a reflection of Charlotte's feelings for Branwell. Charlotte's final juvenile work Ashworth (1839-41) is principally notable for the marked change towards realism.

Like many Evangelicals, such as Wilberforce, Carus Wilson was both rich and a strong Tory. His object in founding the school was to train the daughters of poor clergymen to their station in life, namely to be governesses. Governess is stated in the Register to be the future career of both Maria and Elizabeth Bronte.
