The roman-a-clef AGNES GRAY is a semi-autobiographical depiction of Anne Bronte's life as a governess. In the novel, Agnes, a rector's daughter--like Anne and her sisters, Charlotte and Emily--describes the spoiled children of the Bloomfield family. The outcome of the story, however, bears little resemblance to the author's own experience. Agnes marries the gentle curator, Mr. Weston, with whom she has three children.
