Women Writers: Elizabeth Gaskell

£11.99

Product description

This soft cover book has been read but remains in good condition. There are no internal markings or annotations. The page ends show signs of foxing together with other small stains (see photo). The bottom corner of the front cover is slightly creased. This is also shown on bottom corner of the book's first page. There is no other damage to the cover and the spine remains intact.

'Elizabeth Gaskell has been presented in many different terms: as a timid, conventional Victorian woman and as a feminist critic of her society, as a chartist sympathiser and as an apologist for class privilege.;This new study of Gaskell's major work argues that, as a Unitarian and as a middle-class woman, she held a number of warring allegiances that show themselves in complexities and contradictions in her writing, but that, towards the end of her career, she found ways of resolving for herself the tensions between social duty and artistic delight. A feminist perspective is given on her novels and biography. By the author of "The Rise of the Woman Novelist from Aphra Behn to Jane Austen".'
