Tietoja tekijästä

Elizabeth Gaskell was born on September 29, 1810 to a Unitarian clergyman, who was also a civil servant and journalist. Her mother died when she was young, and she was brought up by her aunt in Knutsford, a small village that was the prototype for Cranford, Hollingford and the setting for numerous näytä lisää other short stories. In 1832, she married William Gaskell, a Unitarian clergyman in Manchester. She participated in his ministry and collaborated with him to write the poem Sketches among the Poor in 1837. Our Society at Cranford was the first two chapters of Cranford and it appeared in Dickens' Household Words in 1851. Dickens liked it so much that he pressed Gaskell for more episodes, and she produced eight more of them between 1852 and 1853. She also wrote My Lady Ludlow and Lois the Witch, a novella that concerns the Salem witch trials. Wives and Daughters ran in Cornhill from August 1864 to January 1866. The final installment was never written but the ending was known and the novel exists now virtually complete. The story centers on a series of relationships between family groups in Hollingford. Most critics agree that her greatest achievement is the short novel Cousin Phillis. Gaskell was also followed by controversy. In 1853, she offended many readers with Ruth, which explored seduction and illegitimacy that led the "fallen woman" into ostracism and inevitable prostitution. The novel presents the social conduct in a small community when tolerance and morality clash. Critics praised the novel's moral lessons but Gaskell's own congregation burned the book and it was banned in many libraries. In 1857, The Life of Charlotte Brontë was published. The biography was initially praised but angry protests came from some of the people it dealt with. Gaskell was against any biographical notice of her being written during her lifetime. After her death on November 12, 1865, her family refused to make family letters or biographical data available. (Bowker Author Biography) näytä vähemmän

If I had known this very long book was not finished I wouldn't have read it.

As with many novels of Mrs. Gaskell's time, including her contemporary, Charles Dicken’s, this novel was initially published as a serial. It no doubt pleased many a “Cornhill Magazine” (“Victorian magazine and literary journal named after the publisher's address at 65 Cornhill in London” --Wikipedia) reader from 1864 through 1866. In fact, many of Elizabeth Gaskells novels, though not this one, appeared in Charles Dickens' weekly 2 penny serial publication, “Household Words” which he established March 30th, 1850 and continued through 1859. (http://www.djo.org.uk/household-words.html )
I particularly love the sweet, generous nature of the primary character, Molly, in this novel, which shines through all her relationships, especially in her patience with her social-climbing step-mother.
Sadly, Mrs. Gaskell died slightly before finishing this story, but partly because she apparently shared elements of her intended conclusion with others, the ending satisfies.
I read some of this novel at the online “Gutenberg Project,” but primarily listened to Nadia May’s narration, which, as always, is fabulous.
