Read full description of the books The Life of Charlotte Bronte:• Two of English writer Elizabeth Gaskell’s best-selling books are bound together in this Kindle edition: The Life of Charlotte Bronte & Mary Barton, Gaskell’s first published novel
The Life of Charlotte Bronte (1857)
In 1855 Patrick Brontë asked Mrs Gaskell to write a biography of his daughter (and Elizabeth Gaskett’s friend) Charlotte, and The Life of Charlotte Brontë was published in 1857. This played a significant role in developing Mrs Gaskell's own literary career. The biography was a success in that Gaskell focused more on Bronte as a woman than as a writer of Romantic fiction, and critics began to take her work more seriously. Mrs Gaskell's first novel, Mary Barton, was published anonymously in 1848.
Mary Barton (1848)
Mary Barton is the first novel by English author Elizabeth Gaskell, centred around the English city of Manchester between 1839 and 1842. The novel deals with the difficulties faced by the Victorian lower class. It is subtitled 'A Tale of Manchester Life'.
About The Author
Elizabeth Cleghorn Gaskell (1810 –1865), referred to as Mrs Gaskell, was a British novelist and short story writer during the Victorian era. She was also the first to write a biography of Charlotte Bronte, The Life of Charlotte Bronte, which was published in 1857.
In North and South, Gaskell creates the city of Milton based on Manchester, nicknamed Cottonopolis, where she lived as the wife of a Unitarian pastor. She saw religious dissenters and social reformers, who decried the abject poverty of this industrial region. She described the poor in her writings, showing compassion for the oppressed.
The last section of Wives and Daughters was not finished upon Elizabeth Gaskell’s death and it is believed that Frederick Greenwood (1830 –1909), a journalist and editor, completed the novel
