North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell

Book Description

'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. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

Books By Author Elizabeth Gaskell

Cranford by Elizabeth Gaskell Cranford, Paperback (October 2013)

The story follows the lives of Mary Smith and her friends, Miss Matty and Miss Deborah, two spinster sisters in the fictional town of Cranford closely modelled on Knutsford in Cheshire, which Mrs Gaskell knew well.

Mary Barton by Elizabeth Gaskell Mary Barton, Paperback (August 2012)

Elizabeth Gaskell's first novel depicts the great clashes between capital and labour, which arose from rapid industrialisation and problems of trade in the mid-19th century. 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.

Cousin Phillis and Other Stories by Elizabeth Gaskell Cousin Phillis and Other Stories, Paperback (March 2010)

This representative selection includes five tales of very different kinds written in the 1850s and the longer Cousin Phillis. Immensely readable and sophisticated works of art, they show Gaskell's mastery of the genre, in an edition that celebrates her achievements in shorter fiction and the context in which they first appeared.

Tales of Mystery and the Macabre by Elizabeth Gaskell Tales of Mystery and the Macabre, Paperback (September 2008)

Better known as the writer of pioneering social novels, Elizabeth Gaskell also wrote some fascinating tales of the supernatural and the macabre, which are collected here in this volume.
