The Penguin English Library Edition of Shirley by Charlotte Bronte ‘Alas Experience! No other mentor has so wasted and frozen a face as yours: none wears a robe so black none bears a rod so heavy …’ Struggling manufacturer Robert Moore has introduced labour saving machinery to his Yorkshire mill arousing a ferment of unemployment and discontent among his workers. Robert considers marriage to the wealthy and independent Shirley Keeldar to solve his financial woes yet his heart lies with his cousin Caroline who bored and desperate lives as a dependent in her uncle’s home with no prospect of a career. Shirley meanwhile is in love with Robert’s brother an impoverished tutor – a match opposed by her family. As industrial unrest builds to a potentially fatal pitch can the four be reconciled? The Penguin English Library – 100 paperbacks of the best fiction written in English from the eighteenth century and the very first novels to the beginning of the First World War
