Cranford

A rich, comic and illuminating portrait of life in a small town, Cranford has moved and entertained readers for generations. This edition features illustrations by the celebrated Hugh Thomson, and an introduction by Dr Josie Billington, a specialist in Victorian literature. The women of the small country town of Cranford live in genteel poverty, resolutely refusing to embrace change, while the dark clouds of urbanisation and the advance of the railway hover threateningly on the horizon. In their simple, well-ordered lives they face emotional dilemmas and upheavals, small in the scale of the ever-shifting world, but affectionately portrayed by Elizabeth Gaskell with all the weight and consequence of a grand drama.

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.
