Villette is the story of Lucy Snow, a teacher at an all-girls boarding school in Belgium who finds herself caught up in her students' romances, reunited with old friends, and searching for a love of her own. Exploring themes of gender roles, repression, isolation, and religion, Villette is best known for following Lucy's psychological state.

Villette, originally published using Charlotte Brontë's pseudonym Currer Bell, was reworked from her first novel The Professor after it was turned down by publishers, and reflects Brontë's own experiences as both a student and teacher at a boarding school. It has been adapted for radio and television, and inspired Jamaica Kincaid's 1990 novel Lucy.
