Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this Readers' Guide, Alison Chapman introduces and discusses the patterns of critical attention that Gaskell's work has attracted across the past hundred and fifty years. Beginning with contemporary press and critical reviews, and treatments by the Victorian and early twentieth-century literary establishment, the Guide sets out a background for the most recent and challenging reassessments of these novels, bringing the reader fully up to date on current critical approaches.

Synopsis:

A volume in the ICON CRITICAL GUIDES series, aimed at university literature students. Each guide assembles a collection of extracts from essays, reviews and articles on a single text or pair of related texts and gives guidance on how to approach them. This guide covers Mary Barton (1848) and North and South (1855) which have provoked much debate.

Synopsis:

Reader's Guides to Essential Criticism explore the key critical material relating to major works of world literature. A clear, informative narrative links the extracts and examines their context and importance. From contemporary reviews to postmodern readings, the Guides offer readers a full account of the ways in which the works have been received by academics, critics, and the public.
