The Professor endures this present day as either a harbinger of Brontë's later novels and a compelling learn in its personal right.

"The heart and latter component of The Professor is nearly as good as i will write," proclaimed Brontë. "It includes extra pith, extra substance, extra fact, in my judgment, than a lot of Jane Eyre".

Jean, but after the boy's accident and the long weeks in hospital obscure emotions of jealousy and pride kept them apart, and when they met at last it was as enemies.
