About the Book

This best-known episodic book ''Cranford'' is written by an English author, Elizabeth Gaskell. It was first published as a series of articles in the magazine Household Words before being turned into a book with the working title Cranford and being on sale in 1853. The play gradually gained popularity, and at the turn of the 20th century, it received a variety of dramatic adaptations for the stage, radio, and television. A little Cheshire hamlet from Elizabeth Gaskell's upbringing served as the inspiration for her book Cranford. It was initially written as a short story, and it was released in 1851 under the title "Our Society in Cranford." She also authored Ruth, a three-volume book that was published in January 1853, during this time. The eight different titles were originally issued for the episodes that were discussed in Cranford. In the first, a society of women known as "Amazons" who live in affluent poverty are introduced. Being forced to host a visit from her cousin Major Jenkyns stresses out Matty.

About Author

Elizabeth Cleghorn Gaskell

Elizabeth Cleghorn Gaskell, also known as Mrs. Gaskell, was an English author, historian, and short story writer who lived from 29 September 1810 to 12 November 1865. The very poor and other members of Victorian society are all depicted in great detail in her novels. Both readers of literature and social historians will find her work interesting. In 1848, Mary Barton, her debut book, was released. The earliest biography of Charlotte Bront was Gaskell's The Life of Charlotte Bront, which was released in 1857. She only covered the moral, sophisticated portions of Bronte's life in her biography; the rest was left out because, in her opinion, some of the obscenity details should be kept out of public view. The BBC has adapted each of Gaskell's most well-known novels for television, including Cranford, North and South (1854-55), and Wives and Daughters (1865). Gaskell wrote to Charles Dickens at the beginning of 1850 seeking his guidance on how to help a girl named Pasley whom she had visited in prison. Ruth's title character had a model thanks to Pasley in 1853. Her remaining books, Cranford (1853), North and South (1854), and Wives and Daughters (1855), are the most well-known (1865). She gained notoriety for her writing, particularly for her ghost stories.
