9780007902255: North and South (Collins Classics)

HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics.

‘But the cloud never comes in that quarter of the horizon from which we watch for it.’

When Margaret Hale is uprooted from Hampshire and moves to the industrial town of Milton in the North of England, her whole world changes. As her sympathy for the town’s mill workers grows, her sense of social injustice piques and she passionately fights their corner. However, just as she disputes the mill owner, John Thornton’s treatment of his workers, she cannot deny her growing attraction to him. Highlighting the changing landscape of nineteenth-century Britain and championing the role of women in Victorian society, Gaskell brilliantly captures the lives of ordinary people through one of her strongest female characters in literature.

Review:

"Gaskell saw the emotional and economic realities of ordinary life with a steely honesty" ( The Times)

" Ruth, North and South and Mary Barton are at least as good as any of Dickens's novels" (Sara Paretsky)

"Pah! to Dickens. Eat your heart out, Little Nell. That Elizabeth Gaskell could write a death scene to make your socks melt" ( Scotsman)

"One of the most perceptive novels of the mid-Victorian era" ( Glasgow Herald)

" North And South explores themes that still seem strikingly modern. One hundred and fifty years after it appeared, the North-South divide - and the social and economic gulf it implies - remains intact" ( Daily Mail)

Book Description:

'A really remarkable picture of the reality, as well as the prosperity, of northern industrial life, and an interesting examination of changing social conscience' Joanna Trollope
