Mary Barton

The rich know nothing of the trials of the poor; I say, if they don't know, they ought to know. We're their slaves as long as we can work; we pile up their fortunes with the sweat of our brows, and yet we are to live as separate as if we were in two worlds " Mary Barton, the heroine of Elizabeth Gaskell's novel, is beautiful but has been born poor. Her father fights for the rights of his fellow workers, but Mary wants to make a better life for them both. She rashly decides to reject her lover Jem, a struggling engineer, in the hope of marrying the rich mill-owner's son Henry Carson and securing a safe future. But when Henry is shot down in the street and Jem becomes the main suspect, Mary finds herself hopelessly torn between them. She also discovers an unpleasant truth - one that could bring tragedy upon everyone, and threatens to destroy her. The Penguin English Library includes 100 editions of the best fiction in English, from the eighteenth century and the very first novels to the...

GASKELL (E.)

GASKELL (E.)

GASKELL ELIZABETH (1810-1865)

Après avoir passé son enfance dans un village du Cheshire, Elizabeth Stevenson épouse un ministre du culte unitarien et s’installe à Manchester.

Son premier roman, Mary Barton , dit la misère de la grande ville vers le milieu du siècle. Sa publication en 1848, année de révolution, lui vaut un succès immédiat et les éloges de Dickens et de Carlyle. Dickens l’invite à collaborer à son magazine, Household Words , dans lequel est publiée sa seconde œuvre importante, Cranford (1853). Ce roman de la vie provinciale évoque, loin de tout sentimentalisme comme de toute satire, le village de son enfance, Knutsford, et les mille petits événements qui l’agitent sous une apparence de calme et d’immobilité. Ce roman reste son œuvre la plus populaire.

Elizabeth Gaskell revient ensuite au roman social, avec Ruth (1853), qui a pour sujet la réprobation dont est victime une femme séduite, puis avec Nord et Sud (North and South , 1855).

Elle publie une Vie de Charlotte Brontë (Life of Charlotte Brontë , 1857), où elle manifeste une admiration chaleureuse pour celle qui fut son amie. Cet ouvrage est à la fois une œuvre d’art et un document de première main. Certains considèrent que Femmes et filles (Wives and Daughters ), roman inachevé, est son chef-d’œuvre.
