[ Pdf Mary Barton æ boys-love PDF ] by Elizabeth Gaskell ä As brilliant this time as it was the first This is probably the most exciting and page turner Victorian books out there, and is highly worth everybody s time.
Okay, I am turning into a major E Gaskell fan I absolutely loved this book It was her first, and got a bit melodramatic in places, but I think she made it work North and South was definitely better crafted, but this was just as good a story Gaskell wrote at the same time as Dickens, Industrial Age Britian She lived in Manchester trade town and knew the condiditions there very well She does a great job at describing the real living circumstances of the rich and poor The book is absolutely gripping in its portrayal of the very poor working people Loved it Will buy it.
Mary Barton is a wonderful failure of a novel, in all of the classic Victorian ways the love plot is overwrought, the ending is melodramatic, the moralizing is far too heavy, and the epigraphs are obnoxious But, somehow, in the middle of all those problems, Elizabeth Gaskell manages to capture perfectly something important Mary Barton is a Condition of England novel, a meditation on the plight of Manchester cotton weavers in the depression of the early 1840 s This is the Manchester of Freidrich Engels, where people live in squalor so deep that it surpasses comprehension Engels, however, in what I ve read from his account, utterly dehumanizes the people he examines The citizens of his Manchester slums almost literally become their own excrement Gaskell, on the other hand, has faced an onslaught of criticism for her tidy Manchester Her very tidiness Mary Bartonis the very first novel written by Elizabeth Gaskell Living in the industrial city of Manchester and having first hand witnessed the poor living condition and suffering of the working class, Gaskell was inspired to write a novel bringing to light their poverty and suffering.
InMary Barton,Gaskell gives a true and heartfelt account on the lives of these working class men and women The suffering they undergo due to want of the basic needs for human survival such as food, proper clothing and other basic facilities to warm them against the chilly English weather, and the sicknesses and death which are so common due their unhygienic living conditions and lack of nutritious food is sympathetically and almost passionately portrayed that it was a pure emotional struggle to read of t After having read North and South quite a long time ago I had forgotten why this woman was a master in storytelling.
Because it seems impossible that a novel written in the classic way, with long sentences and a stiff structure with ancient vocabulary and dealing with the pros and conts of the revolutionary working class in the industrial England of the late XIXth century, might engage the reader the way that Mary Barton does.
Even with all these formal constraints Gaskell manages to transmit such contained emotion that sometimes I didn t realise I had stopped breathing with anxiety.
Mary Barton is a working class girl, daughter of an impoverished widowed man Her pretty face catches the attention of Mr Carson one of the wealthy lads of Manchester and the possibili
This was Elizabeth Gaskell s first novel and it shows It s signficantly less assured than her better known works, North and South, Cranford and Wives and Daughters The eponymous heroine is at times annoying although she grows in stature as the work progresses and the narrative has a number of those features which make some readers avoid Victorian fiction a leisurely pace, wordiness, preachiness, sentimentality and melodrama The novel starts very slowly At the half way mark the pace picks up and it turns into an interesting court room drama, which would be even interesting if the outcome had not been predictable The last quarter of the novel falls off somewhat, as Gaskell s preaching kicks into high gear That said, Gaskell writes well and is a good storyteller, notwithstanding the signficant implausibility of some parts of t I have never understood why Elizabeth Gaskell is not better known She was a contemporary of Dickens and a much better writer Both HARD TIMES by Dickens and Mary Barton by Gaskell deal with the terrible plight of the working poor during the 1840s and 1850s Gaskell s characters are realistically drawn as opposed to Dicken s exaggerated comical characters Mrs Gaskell shows how factory workers lived in terribly squalid conditions and the affect this had on Mary Barton s father There is a murder which leads to a thrilling trial The suspense was skillfully done, leaving me unwilling to put the book down This novel should lead to an interest in the social and economic realities of England in the mid 1800s An even cursory investigation will reveal that Mrs Gaskell did not exaggerate the conditions or the squalor of that time Primer contacto con Elizabeth Gaskell superado Y con nota La historia es muy buena y sus personajes tambi n.
Si bien al principio me chirriaba un poco que intentara influir tanto en mi concepci n y pensamiento sobre los personajes, luego me di cuenta de que simplemente se trataba de una amiga que me contaba una historia, con sus peque os parones para comentar y juzgar a sus protagonistas, como si estuvi ramos tan a gusto con un t deshilachando ese relato entre las dos cada una con su opini n, a veces coincidente y a veces no Pero ambas disfrutando de nuestra interesante charla As que, gustosamente, seguir con el resto de andanzas de la Gaskell, of course
