Description
Now chiefly remembered for Cranford and the radical North and South, Elizabeth Gaskell (1810–65) was one of the great Victorian novelists; adept at capturing local dialect and the voices of middle-class characters, she was well known for enriching her work with a sense of the everyday. She was also a regular contributor to Charles Dickens's periodicals, and famously wrote her friend Charlotte Brontë's biography. Thanks to her prolific letter-writing, a record remains of her daily experiences and thoughts, which Alan Shelston draws upon in this succinct biography to shed light on the life of the woman behind the writing—her literary successes as well as her marriage and humanitarian work.
