About the Book

English author Elizabeth Gaskell's social novel North and South was published in 1854 and 1855. It is one of her best-known books, along with Wives and Daughters (1865) and Cranford (1853), and it has been televised three times. The 2004 revision reignited interest in the book and drew it to a larger audience. Originally, Charles Dickens, the editor of Household Words, the magazine in which the novel was serialized, insisted on using North and South as the title of the book instead of Margaret Hale, the protagonist. North and South use a protagonist from southern England to present and comment on the perspectives of mill owners and workers in an industrializing city, in contrast to Gaskell's first book, Mary Barton (1848), which focused on relations between employers and workers in Manchester from the perspective of the working poor. The fictional industrial town of Milton in the north of England serves as the setting for the book. Margaret Hale relocates to Milton with her parents after being forced to leave her peaceful, rural southern home. She witnesses the Industrial Revolution's harshness and the initial strikes' conflicts between employers and employees.

About Author

Elizabeth Gaskell

English author Elizabeth Gaskell also wrote biographies and short stories. 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 more obscene details should be kept out of public view. The BBC has adapted all three of Gaskell's most well-known novels—Wives and Daughters (1865), North and South (1854–55), and Cranford (1851–53)—for television. On September 29, 1810, in the home that is now 93 Cheyne Walk in Lindsey Row, Chelsea, London, Elizabeth Cleghorn Stevenson was born. Elizabeth was a lovely young lady, neatly dressed, well-maintained, and thoughtful of others. She had a cool, collected demeanor and was innocently happy. She loved the simplicity of country living. Elizabeth Gaskell married Unitarian pastor William Gaskell in Knutsford on August 30, 1832.
