Literary Characters

OF THE BABY NAME GREY

Agnes Grey is the titular character of Anne Bronte’s first novel, published in 1847. Agnes is a humble governess (well, who among the Brontes’ heroines isn’t?!) whose indignities suffered at the hands of heedless employers are heart-wrenching. Agnes is employed by a series of heartless rich people who think their children are perfect; the children, of course, are anything but. Poor Agnes seems to have little recourse, and she is, in fact, powerless. To be young, poor and female in her time was to have innocently signed on for a life of hardship. The only solution was to find a man, which Agnes does, in the person of the good parson, Edward Weston. After the usual misunderstandings, they marry and live happily ever after in the finest of Victorian traditions. Anne Bronte’s own fate was not as fortunate – she got the governess part, but she didn’t get the man. Moreover, she died of tuberculosis at the age of twenty-nine. Even marrying a parson would be preferable.

Zane Grey was a popular American author who wrote of adventures in the Old West. He was born Pearl Zane Grey in Zanesville, OH but later dropped his first name favoring his middle. Zanesville, Ohio was actually founded by his maternal ancestor. As a boy, Zane was engaged in every possible physical activity from horseback riding to fishing to hunting, and eventually received a scholarship to the University of Pennsylvania for baseball. Afterwards, like his father, he followed a career in dentistry. But alas, the outdoors called. He successfully wrote extensively and passionately about his love for adventures and became most famous for his work, “Riders of the Purple Sage” (1921).
