Sobre El Autor

Elizabeth Gaskell was born on September 29, 1810 to a Unitarian clergyman, who was also a civil servant and journalist. Her mother died when she was young, and she was brought up by her aunt in Knutsford, a small village that was the prototype for Cranford, Hollingford and the setting for numerous mostrar más other short stories. In 1832, she married William Gaskell, a Unitarian clergyman in Manchester. She participated in his ministry and collaborated with him to write the poem Sketches among the Poor in 1837. Our Society at Cranford was the first two chapters of Cranford and it appeared in Dickens' Household Words in 1851. Dickens liked it so much that he pressed Gaskell for more episodes, and she produced eight more of them between 1852 and 1853. She also wrote My Lady Ludlow and Lois the Witch, a novella that concerns the Salem witch trials. Wives and Daughters ran in Cornhill from August 1864 to January 1866. The final installment was never written but the ending was known and the novel exists now virtually complete. The story centers on a series of relationships between family groups in Hollingford. Most critics agree that her greatest achievement is the short novel Cousin Phillis. Gaskell was also followed by controversy. In 1853, she offended many readers with Ruth, which explored seduction and illegitimacy that led the "fallen woman" into ostracism and inevitable prostitution. The novel presents the social conduct in a small community when tolerance and morality clash. Critics praised the novel's moral lessons but Gaskell's own congregation burned the book and it was banned in many libraries. In 1857, The Life of Charlotte Brontë was published. The biography was initially praised but angry protests came from some of the people it dealt with. Gaskell was against any biographical notice of her being written during her lifetime. After her death on November 12, 1865, her family refused to make family letters or biographical data available. (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos

Reseñas

La vida de Charlotte Brontë y de sus hermanos es trágica, digna de cualquiera de sus novelas. Huérfanos de madre desde muy temprana edad, educados en una destartalada vicaría de los páramos de Haworth por un padre estricto y bastante excéntrico, los Brontë debieron cultivar la imaginación para escapar de una vida llena de privaciones materiales y morales. La temprana muerte de las hermanas de Charlotte, junto con los continuos quebraderos de cabeza ocasionados por las calaveradas de Branwell –el hermano que el padre esperaba que fuese el genio de la familia-, no constituyeron precisamente un entorno agradable. Y, al contrario de lo que ocurre en sus novelas, la vida de Charlotte no gozó de un final feliz; murió a los 39 años, nueve meses después de haber contraído matrimonio.… (más)

En un molino-restaurante a orillas del Necker, en Alemania, el retrato de una mujer de tez y expresión enigmáticas llama la atención de un grupo de viajeros. El dueño del molino les enseña un documento que cuenta la historia de esta mujer, que la narradora se apresta a traducir. La bella hija de un molinero de Heidelberg pasa una temporada en Carlsruhe, invitada por una antigua amiga del colegio. Allí, por mediación de la pretenciosa -aunque pobre- madre de su amiga, es pretendida por un noble francés, monsieur de la Tourelle, y, con la aprobación de todos, se casa con él.… (más)

A través de la historia de Margaret Hale, una joven del sur de Inglaterra que por circunstancias familiares se ve obligada a trasladarse al norte, Elizabeth Gaskell plasma los conflictos sociales y políticos derivados de la revolución industrial en la Inglaterra de mediados del siglo XIX. Para la heroína, el sur donde ha nacido simboliza el idilio rural; frente a él, el norte es sucio, rudo y violento.
