Elizabeth Gaskell: The Early Years

Portada
Manchester University Press, 1997 M06 15 - 492 páginas
This absorbing study of Elizabeth Gaskell's early life up to her marriage in 1832 is based almost entirely on new evidence. Also, using parish records, marriage settlements, property transfers, wills, record office documents, letters, journals and private papers, John Chapple has recreated the background of one of the nineteenth century's greatest novelists.
