Contains Mr Harrison s Confessions Cranford My Lady Ludlow br br In this witty and poignant story the railway is pushing its way relentlessly towards the town from Manchester bringing fears of migrant workers and the breakdown of law and order The arrival of handsome young Doctor Harrison causes yet further agitation not just because of his revolutionary methods but also because of his effect on the hearts of the ladies Meanwhile Miss Matty Jenkyns nurses her own broken heart after she was forced to give up the man she loved when she was a young girl, When her father leaves the Church in a crisis of conscience Margaret Hale is uprooted from her comfortable home in Hampshire to move with her family to the north of England Initially repulsed by the ugliness of her new surroundings in the industrial town of Milton Margaret becomes aware of the poverty and suffering of the local mill workers and develops a passionate sense of social justice This is intensified by her tempestuous relationship with the mill owner and self made man John Thornton as their fierce opposition over his treatment of his employees masks a deeper attraction br br In i North and South i Elizabeth Gaskell skillfully fuses individual feeling with social concern and in Margaret Hale creates one of the most original heroines of Victorian literature, This is Elizabeth Gaskell s first novel a widely acclaimed work based on the actual murder in of a progressive mill owner It follows Mary Barton daughter of a man implicated in the murder through her adolescence when she suffers the advances of the mill owner and later through love and marriage Set in Manchester between it paints a powerful and moving picture of working class life in Victorian England, i b It is very pleasant dining with a bachelor I only hope it is not improper so many pleasant things are b i br br A portrait of the residents of an English country town in the mid nineteenth century i Cranford i relates the adventures of Miss Matty and Miss Deborah two middle aged spinster sisters striving to live with dignity in reduced circumstances Through a series of vignettes Elizabeth Gaskell portrays a community governed by old fashioned habits and dominated by friendships between women Her wry account of rural life is undercut however by tragedy in its depiction of such troubling events as Matty s bankruptcy the violent death of Captain Brown or the unwitting cruelty of Peter Jenkyns Written with acute observation i Cranford i is by turns affectionate moving and darkly satirical br br In her introduction Patricia Ingham discusses i Cranford i in relation to Gaskell s own past and as a work of irony in the manner of Jane Austen She also considers the implications of the novel in terms of class and empire This edition also includes further reading notes and an appendix on the significance of Fashion at Cranford
