Mary Barton A Tale of Manchester Life

Elizabeth Gaskell’s first novel depicts nothing less than the great clashes between capital and labour, which arose from rapid industrialisation and problems of trade in the mid-nineteenth century. But these clashes are dramatized through personal struggles. John Barton has to reconcile his personal conscience with his socialist duty, risking his life and liberty in the process. His daughter Mary is caught between two lovers, from opposing classes – worker and manufacturer. And at the heart of the narrative lies a murder which implicates them all. Mary Barton was published in 1848, at a time of great social ferment in Europe, and it reflects its revolutionary moment through an English lens. Elizabeth Gaskell wrote her first novel about the world in which she lived – Manchester at the height of the industrial revolution. As the wife of a Unitarian minister she was solidly middle-class; but she alsohad close contact with the working classes around her, sympathised with them, and...

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.
