Mary Barton (World's Classics) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is Elizabeth Gaskell's first novel, a widely acclaimed work based on the actual murder, in 1831, of a progressive mill owner. It follows Mary Barton, daughter of a man implicated in the murder, through her adolescence, when she suffers the advances of the mill owner, and later through love and marriage. Set in Manchester, between 1837-42, it paints a powerful and moving picture of working-class life in Victorian England.

Synopsis:

A novel that shows the comfortable pinnacle and miserable base of the Victorian social pyramid. James Barton blames the death of his wife on her beautiful sister, Esther. Before mysteriously vanishing, Esther vows to make a lady of her niece Mary - words which sow the seeds of ambition in the girl.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [xxvi]-xxvii).
