Elizabeth Gaskell: Second Edition

Manchester University Press, 2006 - 191 páginas
This pioneering study, described as 'a model of feminist criticism' (The Year's Work in English Studies) on first publication, revealed Gaskell as an important social analyst who deliberately challenged the Victorian disjunction between public and private ethical values, who maintained a steady resistance to aggressive authority, advocating female friendship, rational motherhood and the power of speech as forces for social change. This new edition presents the original text (except for bibliographical updating) together with a new and extensive critical 'Afterword'.
