Cranford

9781596882218 

by Elizabeth Gaskell

Cranford is one of the better-known novels of the 19th-century English writer Elizabeth Gaskell. It was first published, irregularly, in eight installments, between December 1851 and May 1853, in the magazine Household Words, which was edited by Charles Dickens.  In the years following Gaskell’s death, the novel became immensely popular. Cranford is less a novel than a collection of satirical sketches, which sympathetically portray changing small town customs and values in mid-Victorian England. Harkening back to memories of her childhood in the small Cheshire town of Knutsford, Cranford is Gaskell’s affectionate portrait of people and customs that were already becoming anachronisms.Cranford is one of the better-known novels of the 19th-century English writer Elizabeth Gaskell.
