One thought on “Wives and Daughters (Oxford World’s Classics)

  1. Dear SirsWhat I have found on this purchase is that the book is not complete It only goes to Chapter XXIII However since I had bought earlier the collection book Works of Elizabeth Gaskell, North and South, Wives and Daughters, Ruth, The Moorland Cottage, etc , I am able to finish its reading through the previous purchase, however I am puzzled wondering how the book purchased may be just a part of the actual work.The second purchase of this work was obviously my mistake, and do not intend to bla [...]


  2. Es costumbrista de la poca victoriana y eso es lo que esperaba, pero resulta muy reiterativo y abunda mucho en detalles cotidianos.


  3. Thoroughly enjoyed this book Gaskell had a tremendous understanding of human nature and the psychology of various personality types Some of her descriptions and the characters dialogue reminded me of people I know My favorite character was Lady Harriet, who seemed the most astute figure in my opinion This book isn t for everyone At over 600 pages, it is a commitment to read Also the author died before finishing it, so some people feel it leaves them with an incomplete feeling However, I was not [...]


  4. Like all Victorian novels that began as magazine fiction, WIVES AND DAUGHTERS starts out slowly, introducing the large cast of characters, unraveling their duties and wonts, trading page turner excitement for the drawn out episodes that kept the monthly readers in high anticipation issue after issue for two years or Stick with it, and after a few hundred pages or so, the modern reader will become as enmeshed in the lives of Molly Gibson and Cynthia Kirkpatrick as she was in the lives of Downton [...]

  6. Gaskell s last novel is charmingly true to the conventions of its genre That is, It s the kind of thing you d like if you liked that kind of thing I do, and for me 19th century novels are escapism I am always aware, though, of their whiteness and prejudices their support and glamorization of the class system that is only tangentially critiqued and the unapologetic insistence on a maidenly reputation as women s chief valuation All that said, imagining oneself to be a pampered lady of leisure in a [...]


  7. Wives and Daughters was Elizabeth Gaskell s last, longest, and perhaps best novel Set in an 1830 s rural English village, it deftly mixes domestic drama and comedy with some rather subversive social commentary.At the center of the story is Molly Gibson, the daughter of the village doctor, who has been motherless from a young age and raised by her father She is modest, considerate, and honest, if a little unworldly When one of the doctor s trainees takes in a romantic interest in the seventeen ye [...]
