On Episode 5 of THE MANHATTAN MILLENNIAL BOOK REVIEW, Host Anuja Jaiswal reviews “Villette,” Charlotte Bronte’s final novel, lesser known than “Jane Eyre,” but no less powerful. “VILLETTE” follows the life of Lucy Snowe, who leaves England to teach abroad and Anuju digs deep into the Victorian novel’s exploration of classic themes of overbearing employers, romantic misfortune, and the timely idea of the “male gaze…” Although ”Villette” was written in 1853, Anuja reveals how it remains a relevant and prescient story worthy of a fresh look.
