Overview

*Includes a Table of Contents.
*Includes over a dozen pictures of Gaskell, her life and work

Elizabeth Gaskell (1810-1865) was a well known British novelist at one of the peak eras for female writers in England. A novelist and short story writer at the height of the Victorian Era, Gaskell’s novels weave a comprehensive, detailed image of the lives of all kinds of different classes in society during that age, ranging from the very poor to the cream of the aristocratic crop. Of course, given the era in which she wrote, Mrs. Gaskell’s writing included a wonderful style of prose that still continues to please literary critics, even while discussing the general themes of the day like religion and poverty.

While novels like North and South dazzled readers, her short stories, particularly Gothic ghost stories, caught the eye of no less a writer than Charles Dickens, who helped get her stories published during the middle of the 19th century.

This edition of Gaskell’s Mary Barton is illustrated with pictures of Gaskell, her work and life. It also includes a table of contents for easier navigation.

    Read it.

    One of the most under-rated authors of her time or ours. Not only a good book, full of all the twists, turns, heart-break and triumph you would expect, it is also a compelling social commentary without ever becoming too preachy or righteous. If you are a reader of classics you must read this or any of her books.

    Recommed

    If you feel bad about the economy now and how it treats you, read this book about the cotton instrial age in England. What an eyeopener~

    Heading to library for real copy-skip this

    Am on page 12 of this "copy" of a well loved book & the typos are so severe they are sending me to the library to borrow an actual book. I either got this free or for a dollar but its still no good.
