    The Professor, first novel written by Charlotte submitted the manuscript for publication in , at the same time that her sisters found publishers for their novels Agnes Grey and Wuthering Heights. The Professor was rejected for publication during the author’s lifetime but was published posthumously in , with a preface by her husband, Arthur Bell Nicholls.   Each volume has special title-page [v. 1] Agnes Grey / Anne Brontë, with a memoir of her sisters by Charlotte Brontë -- [v. ] The tenant of Wildfell Hall / Bran Brontë -- [v. 4] The professor / Charlotte Brontë -- [v. ] Jane Eyre / Charlotte Brontë -- [v. ] Shirley / Charlotte Brontë -- [v. ] Villete / Charlotte Brontë -- [v. 11] Wuthering Heights / Emily Brontë.

    Anne Brontė is best-known of her Agnes Grey () and The Tenant of the Wildfell Hall (), which are generally considered more conservative works than her sisters. The close-knit Bronte family have inspired many studies, in which Charlotte, the oldest child, is characterized as the most ambitious writer, and Emily the greatest genius. A book of great power and strength, it is filled with the raw beauty of the moors and an uncanny understanding of the terrible truths about men and women. It is an understanding made even more extraordinary by the fact that it came from the heart of a woman who lived most of her brief life in the remote wildness of the moors.
