Elizabeth Gaskell not only was a significant figure in her own right but moved in the center of the Victorian literary world. The list of her correspondents is a roster of many of the most distinguished literary names of mid-nineteenth-century England. This volume contains all of her available extant letters written from about 1832 to 1865; they have been transcribed from the originals whenever possible. The collection is chronologically arranged, except for a short series of letters for which dates are unobtainable, and a reference system allows the reader to follow letters to any particular writer. A full index frequently includes brief biographical sketches.
