    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 Freid 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, u...

    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 Vic...

    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 transmi After having read North and South quite a long time ago I had forgotten why th...

    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 absolu 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 ma...

    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 Barto...

    I m calling this one read because it took me nearly three weeks to get just past the halfway point, and I don t think I m a slow reader Will I try it again Probably, because I bought the book But I don t recommend it to others.I really enjoy Gaskell s writing But this book is so depressing Maybe it gets better, but it s too much of a downer for me right now I expected a love story with the social commentary off to the side It s pretty much the opposite, and I m not sure exactly where the I m calling this one read because it took me nearly three weeks to get just past the halfway point, and I don t think I m a slow reader Will I try it again Probably, because I bought the book But I don t recommend it to others.I really enjoy Gaskell s writing But this book is so depressing Maybe it gets better, but it s too much of a downer for me right now I expected a love story with the social commentary off to the side It s pretty much the opposite, and I m not sure exactly where the love story is It s in there somewhere, but it s probably hiding in the poverty, starvation and death Another note Why is this book called Mary Barton She may be the main character, but I don t feel I know her ...

    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.

    This was a good enough book I think it was a very good attempt at showcasing the social conflict of Gaskell s era Most of her characters are complex and I think the writing was quite good It just didn t grab me though and I found a lot of it to be uninteresting.
