The Professor was once the 1st novel that Charlotte Brontë accomplished. Rejected through the writer who took at the paintings of her sisters in 1846--Anne's Agnes gray and Emily's Wuthering Heights--it remained unpublished until eventually 1857, years after Charlotte Brontë's loss of life.
Like Villette (1853), The Professor is predicated on her reviews as a language scholar in Brussels in 1842. advised from the viewpoint of William Crimsworth, the single male narrator that she used, the paintings formulated a brand new aesthetic that wondered a few of the presuppositions of Victorian society.
Brontë's hero escapes from a humiliating clerkship in a Yorkshire mill to discover paintings as a instructor in Belgium, the place he falls in love with an impoverished student-teacher, who's possibly the author's so much sensible feminist heroine. The Professor endures at the present time as either a harbinger of Brontë's later novels and a compelling learn in its personal right.
"The center and latter component to The Professor is nearly as good as i will be able to write," proclaimed Brontë. "It includes extra pith, extra substance, extra fact, in my judgment, than a lot of Jane Eyre".

Of Kipling Eliot wrote in 1941: He might almost be called the first citizen of India. And his relation to India determines that about him which is the most important thing about a man, his religious attitude. It is an attitude of comprehensive tolerance. He is not an unbeliever-on the contrary, he can accept all faiths: that of the Moslem, that of the Hindu, that of the Buddhist, Parsee or Jain, even (through the historical imagination) that of Mithra: if his understanding of Christianity is less affectionate, that is due to his Anglo-Saxon background-and no doubt he saw enough in India of clergy such as Mr.
In a sense, his answer is the book itself, for it is the best thing he ever wrote. IRVI~G IIOWE The Pleasures of Kim That sense of evil which for cultivated people has become a mark of wisdom and source of pride, indeed, the very sun of their sunless world, is not a frequent presence in the pages of Kim, and when it does appear it can rarely trouble us with either its violence or grasp. We are inclined these days to exalt the awareness of evil into a kind of appreciation. We find it hard to suppose that a serious writer could turn his back upon the malignity at the heart of things; we urge it as a criticism of writers like Emerson and Whitman that they arc weak in the awareness of evil, as if nature had denied them a necessary faculty.
But for the dynamic of the novel itself, for the inner development of Kim, it would not matter decisively. The Secret Service, rather than a secret underground, is what Kipling's experience made available to him at a fairly superficial plane of consciousness; it is a given of the world in which he grew up, the India of his youth, and it is not, one notes with gratitude, subjected to any quick "purification" by virtue of Kim's service to the lama. All that the Gamethe Secret Service and its prep-school hijinks-need really do is to embody the Wheel of Things, that terrestrial "illusion" which the first portion of the book has shown to be the substance of delight.
