Elizabeth Gaskell

(1810-1865)

English Author
The nostalgy of a way of life about to become an anachronism

This Londonian writer married the Reverend William Gaskell in 1832, with whom she had 5 daughters.

Famous for being the author of Cranford (1853) and her "social-problem" novels, her wit has matured throughout her works.


As a provincial novelist, she relates to George Eliot and Thomas Hardy in her paintings of life in regional communities.

Elizabeth, like Fitzgerald, became famous with her first novel Mary Barton (1848), depicting the grim conditions of Manchester factory workers, using colourfully their dialect in her writings.

Cranford is her next success, a nostalgic novel recalling memories of her childhood in the small Cheshire town of Knutsford, with affectionate pictures of a way of life about to become an anachronism.

Her biography of Charlotte Bront‰ (1857) is a reference.
