J. A. V. Chapple and Arthur Pollard use their knowledge of Mrs. Elizabeth Gaskell’s letters to throw light upon her work as novelist and biographer. After an introductory biographical survey, the study devotes one chapter to each of the major novels, one to The Life of Charlotte Brontë, and one to the shorter writings, and concludes with a general estimate of Mrs. Gaskell’s achievement. In this systematic critical examination of her work, Mrs. Gaskell emerges as a figure of some significance in the annals of the English novel and as a writer who clearly deserves rereading today.
