Item description for North and South by Elizabeth Cleghorn Gaskell...

NORTH AND SOUTH (1854) by Elizabeth Gaskell is both a social commentary and the romantic story of a young lady, Margaret Hale, who is relocated with her family from the affluent South of England to the industrial North.

Margaret comes in contact with the difficulties of the working class and her sympathies are engaged. She also encounters the fascinating John Thornton, a wealthy local mill owner and a man of true integrity. Romantic tension ensues, reminiscent of Jane Austen's PRIDE AND PREJUDICE. However, unlike an Austen heroine, Margaret lives in a world of harsher realities, with few things whitewashed, and suffering going hand in hand with ultimate exultation.

A classic portrayal of nineteenth century industrialization, and of the complexities of the human heart.

More About Elizabeth Cleghorn Gaskell

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Elizabeth Cleghorn Gaskell was born in London in 1810, but she spent her formative years in Cheshire, Stratford-upon-Avon and the north of England. In 1832 she married the Reverend William Gaskell, who became well known as the minister of the Unitarian Chapel in Manchester s Cross Street. As well as leading a busy domestic life as minister s wife and mother of four daughters, she worked among the poor, traveled frequently and wrote. Mary Barton (1848) was her first success.

Two years later she began writing for Dickens s magazine, Household Words, to which she contributed fiction for the next thirteen years, notably a further industrial novel, North and South (1855). In 1850 she met and secured the friendship of Charlotte Bronte. After Charlotte s death in March 1855, Patrick Bronte chose his daughter s friend and fellow-novelist to write The Life of Charlotte Bronte (1857), a probing and sympathetic account, that has attained classic stature. Elizabeth Gaskell s position as a clergyman s wife and as a successful writer introduced her to a wide circle of friends, both from the professional world of Manchester and from the larger literary world. Her output was substantial and completely professional. Dickens discovered her resilient strength of character when trying to impose his views on her as editor of Household Words. She proved that she was not to be bullied, even by such a strong-willed man.

Her later works, Sylvia s Lovers (1863), Cousin Phillis (1864) and Wives and Daughters (1866) reveal that she was continuing to develop her writing in new literary directions. Elizabeth Gaskell died suddenly in November 1865."

Elizabeth Cleghorn Gaskell was born in 1810 and died in 1865.

Reviews - What do customers think about North and South?

North & South  Jul 29, 2008
I first saw the DVD and than purchased the book. The DVD has become my favorite over Pride and Prejudice. The acting is superb and the story line, athough not quite accurate to the book, is very well told. The plot kept my interest throughout the 4 hours of viewing. I would recommend anyone who enjoys the English period pictures to watch this movie.
