9780140621020: Mary Barton (Penguin Popular Classics)

Set in Manchester between 1837 and 1842, Elizabeth Gaskell's first novel paints a powerful and moving picture of working-class life in Victorian England. It concerns Mary Barton, a mill worker's daughter eager to rise through the ranks, and her father, who shoots dead the mill owner's son. This adaptation offers a stirring narrative with real insight into the lives of the Victorian working classes.

Product Description:

This is a tale of Dives and Lazarus, of the comfortable pinnacle and the miserable base of the Victorian social pyramid. It is told, however, without simplification and without hatred.

From the Publisher:

The Broadview Editions series is an effort to represent the ever-changing canon of literature in English by bringing together texts long regarded as classics with valuable, lesser-known literature. Newly type-set and produced on high-quality paper in trade paperback format, the Broadview Editions series is a delight to handle as well as to read.

Each volume includes a full introduction, chronology, bibliography, and explanatory notes along with a variety of documents from the period, giving readers a rich sense of the world from which the work emerged.
