Agnes Gray is the first novel by the British writer Anne Brontë. The novel is written in the first person, and tells the story of Agnes Gray, the youngest of two sisters in a family struck by an unexpected economic collapse, which does not weigh on parents leaving their home to perform the work of governess at rich bourgeois families. The educational experiences lived at the first Bloomfields and then Murray, the reflections on the difficult condition of his governing status, the description of the worldly and vacuous environment in which most of the narration takes place, paint a "microcosm of Victorian society", read through the moral convictions of the author.
