About the Author

Elizabeth Cleghorn Gaskell, née Stevenson (1810–1865), was an eminent Victorian author known for her detailed and sympathetic portrayals of English society. Gaskell's literary career began in earnest with the publication of 'Mary Barton' in 1848, a novel that highlighted the plight of the working poor in Manchester and reflected Gaskell's own progressive social views. She deftly combined social commentary with rich character development, a trait that would come to define her writing style. Her subsequent novels, such as 'North and South' and 'Cranford,' further established her as a keen observer of the changing industrial landscape and its effects on communities and class relations. Gaskell's ability to interweave personal drama with broader social issues made her work both popular and critically acclaimed in her time. Her biography 'The Life of Charlotte Brontë,' published in 1857, is considered a pioneering work in the field of biography, offering intimate insight into the life of her fellow novelist and friend. Gaskell's narrative prowess was not limited to full-length novels; 'The Complete Novellas & Short Stories of Elizabeth Gaskell' showcases her versatility and skill in crafting shorter works of fiction, where she often explored themes of gender roles, social reform, and the intricacies of human relationships. Her works have continued to attract scholarly interest and remain important fixtures in the canon of English literature.
