''Anne Bronte attacks her problem with a freedom and audacity before which her sisters boldest enterprises seem cowardly and restrained…Her behavior is revolutionary.'' --May Sinclair, novelist and suffragist
''Agnes Grey is a charming novel, full of fine character painting and strongly marked by the exquisite development and analysis of the female heart…Agnes Grey, the heroine, herself, is one of the most vigorous and truthful drawings of character, one of the finest pieces of pen-limning that we have encountered anywhere.'' --Graham's Magazine (1850)
''I should like to give it to every family with a governess and shall read it through again when I have a governess to remind me to be human.'' --Lady Amberly
''Bronte depicts in detail the isolation inherent in a governess's life, as an educated - but by necessity not too educated - woman trapped in an awkward halfway world between the classes.'' --Guardian
BR> ''Agnes Grey is the most perfect prose narrative of English letters... Simple and beautiful... The only story in English literature in which style, characters, and subject are in perfect keeping.'' -- George Moore
''For too long [Anne] has been undervalued as the third-best Bronte. But her fiction, exploring the lamentably still current themes of addiction and domestic violence and the abuse of vulnerable women working away from home, has a vigour and bracing satirical intelligence which places her in the first rank of what is arguably the greatest ever generation of novelists in English.'' --Lucy Hughes-Hallett
''[McCaddon] makes the young protagonist come to life in her nuanced first-person reading; her crisp and educated voice conveying the narrator's energy and persistent optimism, while renderings of Agnes' masters, mistresses, and young charges show them for the uncouth bullies that they actually are, despite their superior airs and flaunted gentility.'' --Kliatt --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
