The Penguin English Library edition ofNorth and Southby Elizabeth Gaskell

'How am I to dress up in my finery, and go off and away to smart parties, after the sorrow I have seen today?'

It shows how, forced to move from the country to an industrial northern town, she develops a passionate sense of social justice, and a turbulent relationship with mill-owner John Thornton.North and Southdepicts a young woman discovering herself, in a nuanced portrayal of what divides people, and what brings them together.

Much of her work was serialised in Charles Dickens's widely-read literary weekly,Household Words.

Gaskell's novelsMary Barton,CranfordandWives and Daughtersare also published in the Penguin English Library.


Descriere de la o altă ediție sau format:
`she tried to settle that most difficult problem for women, how much was to be utterly merged in obedience to authority, and how much might be set apart for freedom in working.'North and South is a novel about rebellion. Moving from the industrial riots of discontented millworkers through to the unsought passions of a middle-class woman, and from religious crises of conscience to the ethics of naval mutiny, it poses fundamental questions about the nature of social authority and obedience.Through the story of Margaret Hale, the middle-class southerner who moves to the northern industrial town of Milton, Gaskell skilfully explores issues of class and gender in the conflict between Margaret's ready sympathy with the workers and her growing attraction to the charismatic mill ownder, John Thornton. This new revised and expanded edition sets the novel in the context of Victorian social and medical debate.
