interesting. considering the two stories together, wildfell hall almost seems as if the adversary in 'agnes grey', a stunningly beautiful woman who makes an ill chosen match after being swept off her feet, got her part of the story retold from her point of view. clearly the bronte sisters identify with their plain introverted, thoughtful governess heroines, never with such beautiful creatures as helen graham. but perhaps anne is considering it's not just people like herself, not just the plain but inwardly worthy poor governess who deserve god's mercy and the reader's sympathy. perhaps after creating agnes's nemesis rosalie in agnes grey, she bethought herself a bit and chose not to leave her in such a hell. should one mistake in judgement damn a girl for life? perhaps anne realized beautiful foolish women who show incredible lack of judgement choosing a rotten husband, need god's mercy too. of course rosalie has none of the virtues of helen, but the flip around of situation seems to me to be an interesting connection between the two stories.Read more ›
