Book Short Summary:

When John Barton’s wife dies, he is forced to raise his daughter, Mary, alone, while he grieves the love of his life. Though he is a hard-working man, John struggles to provide for his family. Realizing how unfair his financial situation is, John becomes very resentful towards the unethical distribution of wealth between the social classes. Against John’s wishes, when Mary comes of age, she decides to help support their family by working in a dressmaking factory. Neither John nor Mary are happy with the unsafe working conditions in the factory, but soon, Mary is presented with a way out when Henry Carson, the handsome son of a wealthy mill owner, takes an interest in her. Mary knows that marrying Henry would secure a comfortable life for her and her father, but she is conflicted when Jem Wilson, a respectful and hardworking man also declares his love for her. Though Mary reciprocates his feelings, she is conflicted. Mary rejects Jem and avoids Henry while she tries to decide whether to embrace her love for Jem or accept the financial comfort Henry would provide as a husband. While Jem respectfully accepts Mary’s rejection, he decides to give her space. However, when someone warns him of the possible ill intent Henry has for Mary, he tries to defend her honor. After a fight between Jem and Henry is broken up by the police, Jem decides to spend time with his cousin, a sailor. But when a dead body is found soon after, and Jem becomes the prime suspect, Mary must solve the murder and leave home to help clear Jem’s name before it’s too late. Set in Manchester, England, Mary Barton follows the Barton family as they witness and experience the hardships faced by Victorian working-class families, providing thoughtful insight on the social conditions of the 19th century. With murder, love, and discussions of serious social issues, Mary Barton depicts a powerful narrative that resonates even with modern audiences.

Book Short Summary:

'It's the masters as has wrought this woe; it's the masters as should pay for it.' Set in Manchester in the 1840s - a period of industrial unrest and extreme deprivation - Mary Barton depicts the effects of economic and physical hardship upon the city's working-class community. Paralleling the novel's treatment of the relationship between masters and men, the suffering of the poor, and the workmen's angry response, is the story of Mary herself: a factory-worker's daughter who attracts the attentions of the mill-owner's son, she becomes caught up in the violence of class conflict when a brutal murder forces her to confront her true feelings and allegiances. Mary Barton was praised by contemporary critics for its vivid realism, its convincing characters and its deep sympathy with the poor, and it still has the power to engage and move readers today. This edition reproduces the last edition of the novel supervised by Elizabeth Gaskell and includes her husband's two lectures on the Lancashire dialect.

Book Short Summary:

Mary Barton first appeared in 1848, and has since become one of the best known novels on the ‘condition of England,’ part of a nineteenth-century British trend to understand the enormous cultural, economic and social changes wrought by industrialization. Gaskell’s work had great importance to the labour and reform movements, and it influenced writers such as Charles Dickens, Thomas Carlyle and Charlotte Brontë. The plot of Mary Barton concerns the poverty and desperation of England’s industrial workers. Fundamentally, however, it revolves around Mary’s personal conflicts. She is already divided between an affection for an industrialist’s son, Henry Carson, and for a man of her own class, Jem Wilson. But Mary’s conflict escalates when her father, a committed trade unionist, is asked to assassinate Henry, who is the son of his unjust employer.

Book Short Summary:

ELIZABETH GASKELL MARY BARTON --A TALE OF MANCHESTER LIFE-- PREFACE BY ELIZABETH GASKELL Three years ago I became anxious (from circumstances that need not be more fully alluded to) to employ myself in writing a work of fiction. Living in Manchester, but with a deep relish and fond admiration for the country, my first thought was to find a frame-work for my story in some rural scene; and I had already made a little progress in a tale, the period of which was more than a century ago, and the place on the borders of Yorkshire, when I bethought me how deep might be the romance in the lives of some of those who elbowed me daily in the busy streets of the town in which I resided. I had always felt a deep sympathy with the care-worn men, who looked as if doomed to struggle through their lives in strange alternations between work and want; tossed to and fro by circumstances, apparently in even a greater degree than other men. A little manifestation of this sympathy and a little attention to the expression of feelings on the part of some of the work-people with whom I was acquainted, had laid open to me the hearts of one or two of the more thoughtful among them; I saw that they were sore and irritable against the rich, the even tenor of whose seemingly happy lives appeared to increase the anguish caused by the lottery-like nature of their own. Whether the bitter complaints made by them, of the neglect which they experienced from the prosperous--especially from the masters whose fortunes they had helped to build up--were well-founded or no, it is not for me to judge. It is enough to say, that this belief of the injustice and unkindness which they endure from their fellowcreatures, taints what might be resignation to God's will, and turns it to revenge in too many of the poor uneducated factory-workers of Manchester. The more I reflected on this unhappy state of things between those so bound to each other by common interests, as the employers and the employed must ever be, the more anxious I became to give some utterance to the agony which, from time to time, convulses this dumb people; the agony of suffering without the sympathy of the happy, or of erroneously believing that such is the case. If it be an error, that the woes, which come with ever-returning tide-like flood to overwhelm the workmen in our manufacturing towns, pass unregarded by all but the sufferers, it is at any rate an error so bitter in its consequences to all parties, that whatever public effort can do in the way of legislation, or private effort in the way of merciful deeds, or helpless love in the way of widow's mites, should be done, and that speedily, to disabuse the workpeople of so miserable a misapprehension. At present they seem to me to be left in a state, wherein lamentations and tears are thrown aside as useless, but in which the lips are compressed for curses, and the hands clenched and ready to smite. I know nothing of Political Economy, or the theories of trade. I have tried to write truthfully; and if my accounts agree or clash with any system, the agreement or disagreement is unintentional. To myself the idea which I have formed of the state of feeling among too many of the factory-people in Manchester, and which I endeavoured to represent in this tale (completed above a year ago), has received some confirmation from the events which have so recently occurred among a similar class on the Continent. OCTOBER, 1848

Book Short Summary:

The Book considers what it meant to be a Unitarian in the hungry forties, what Gaskell understood of Chartism and' political economy'; and attitudes to women's rights. It discusses the many ambiguities and instabilities in the book - suggesting where the reader may need to take issue with some of the standard critical assumptions about Gaskell's text, and considers how she might be compared to Dickens - and what Dickens learned from her.And it discusses some contemporary (i.e. Victorian) and recent critical approaches to the book. The aim is to leave the reader with a great deal of respect for a novel that is sometimes underestimated - while pointing out some of its real departures from the best practice of Realist writers, practices that Mrs Gaskell herself did much to invent.

Book Short Summary:

Roman traduit de l’anglais, préfacé et annoté par : Françoise du Sorbier L’essentiel de l’action se situe en 1839, sur fond de grève des ouvriers des filatures, durement éprouvés par la misère et la maladie. Mary Barton, apprentie couturière, vit seule avec son père, ouvrier des filatures et syndicaliste aux positions radicales. Courtisée à la fois par Jem Wilson, le fils de l’ami de son père, qui souhaite l’épouser, et par Harry Carson, le fils du patron des filatures, elle rejette le premier avant de découvrir les mauvaises intentions du second à son égard. Lorsque Harry Carson est abattu par balle, tout désigne Jem comme le coupable. Mary se démène pour prouver son innocence. Premier roman d’Elizabeth Gaskell, écrit en 1848, Mary Barton suscita une controverse à sa publication à cause de sa représentation sans concessions du monde des ouvriers dans une ville industrielle, Manchester. Le récit, qui tisse plusieurs fils narratifs, est aussi un « roman d’éducation » : il offre une étude très fine, et dépourvue de mièvrerie, de la confusion des sentiments chez une toute jeune fille, tout en maintenant un suspense qui entraîne le lecteur dans une course contre la montre extrêmement tendue.

Book Short Summary:

A Manchester, negli anni dell’Inghilterra vittoriana, vivono due famiglie proletarie: i Barton e i Wilson. Mary Barton, orfana da poco della madre, lavora come sarta, abita col padre John, fervido sostenitore dei movimenti sindacali, ed è corteggiata sia dall’onesto e affettuoso Jem Wilson che dal ricco e insidioso Henry Carson. La volontà di emanciparsi economicamente, una punta di vanità e la paura di diventare una delle tante “donne perdute” del tempo portano Mary a non accettare l’affetto sincero di Jem per assicurarsi un matrimonio più solido con Henry. Una scelta che le costerà cara... In questa sua prima opera del 1848, Elizabeth Gaskell narra una lunga e tortuosa storia d’amore tinta di nero da un efferato omicidio, affrontando i drammatici problemi della lower class inglese, insieme a pregiudizi e timori che segnarono un’epoca.

Book Short Summary:

Seminar paper from the year 2003 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,3, Humboldt-University of Berlin (Institut für Anglistik), course: Mid-Victorian Social Problem Novels, 9 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Die Gesellschaft der Bundesrepublik hat sich seit dem 2. Weltkrieg stark verändert. Die damals bestehenden traditionellen Bindungen gelten heute weniger, gesellschaftliche Institutionen wie Parteien und Kirche verlieren immer mehr an Einfluss. Die Gesellschaft individualisiert sich immer weiter und stellt damit das politische System vor andere Bedingungen. Doch wie sehen diese Bedingungen genau aus? Kann die Vermittlung von Politik heute noch genauso vor sich gehen wie vor 20 Jahren oder muss das politische System heute im Bereich der Kommunikation neue Wege gehen? Und inwieweit ist dies mit den Rahmenbedingungen der politischen Vermittlung, welche im Grundgesetz verankert sind, vereinbar? Stellt die veränderte Situation vielleicht sogar eine Gefahr für die Demokratie dar? Diesen Fragen wird in dieser Hausarbeit nachgegangen. Um Antworten auf diese Fragen zu finden wird zunächst dargelegt, wie der Gesetzgeber die Rolle der politischen Vermittlung durch die Parteien vorgesehen hat. Danach wird der Frage nachgegangen, inwiefern sich die deutsche Gesellschaft verändert, um daraufhin das Mediensystem zu analysieren. Hinsichtlich des Mediensystem wird der Schwerpunkt auf die Einführung des Privatfernsehens und dessen Auswirkungen gelegt und inwiefern man hier von einer „Macht der Medien“ sprechen kann. Danach wird betrachtet, inwieweit das politische System auf die neuen Bedingungen in den anderen Teilsystemen reagiert. Was sind die Antworten der politischen Parteien auf die Trends in ihrem Umfeld? Was hat es auf sich mit neuen Techniken des Politmarketings? Gibt es hier Rückkopplungen auf das inhaltliche Programm der Parteien? Dies führt dann gleich zu der weiterführenden Frage inwieweit sich Chancen und Risiken aus den neuen Techniken und Bedingungen der politischen Kommunikation für das demokratische System ergeben.

Book Short Summary:

«Hay en Mary Barton, sí, muchas muertes y desgracias; pero, tras esa desolación, subyace la esperanza de una vida mejor, fundada en el poderoso aliento de los lazos familiares y en la sencilla máxima que proclama uno de los personajes: «Los fuertes tienen el deber de ayudar a los débiles».» Alberto de Frutos Por sus obligaciones como mujer de un pastor unitario, Elizabeth Gaskell hubo de conocer de primera mano las condiciones de vida de los obreros de Manchester y las consecuencias de la revolución Industrial. «Dar voz al sufrimiento que de vez en cuando se abate sobre esas persona mudas» e intentar conciliar sus intereses con los de los altivos patronos fue el propósito de su primera novela, Mary Barton (1848). «Quiero trabajo, es mi derecho», clama uno de sus protagonistas: en este ambiente de tensión social, agravado por la pobreza y el desempleo, se inscribe la peripecia de una muchacha que coquetea con el apuesto hijo del patrono y desprecia al pretendiente –un antiguo compañero de juegos de la infancia, honrado e inteligente– que daría su vida por ella. Un crimen inesperado somete a la heroína a un dilema crucial y la obliga a reconocer, quizá cuando ya sea demasiado tarde, sus verdaderos sentimientos. Una trama llena de situaciones límite, una escritura cultivada y puntillosa y unos personajes descritos con simpatía y vigor realzan el valor de esta novela. Con ella, Elizabeth Gaskell hizo su brillante y polémico debut en la escena literaria inglesa y enseguida fue reclutada por Dickens para que escribiera en su revista Household Words.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • A simple hospital visit becomes a portal to the tender relationship between mother and daughter in this extraordinary novel by the Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Olive Kitteridge and The Burgess Boys. Soon to be a Broadway play starring Laura Linney produced by Manhattan Theatre Club and London Theatre Company • LONGLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE • NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The Washington Post • The New York Times Book Review • NPR • BookPage • LibraryReads • Minneapolis Star Tribune • St. Louis Post-Dispatch Lucy Barton is recovering slowly from what should have been a simple operation. Her mother, to whom she hasn’t spoken for many years, comes to see her. Gentle gossip about people from Lucy’s childhood in Amgash, Illinois, seems to reconnect them, but just below the surface lie the tension and longing that have informed every aspect of Lucy’s life: her escape from her troubled family, her desire to become a writer, her marriage, her love for her two daughters. Knitting this powerful narrative together is the brilliant storytelling voice of Lucy herself: keenly observant, deeply human, and truly unforgettable. Praise for My Name Is Lucy Barton “A quiet, sublimely merciful contemporary novel about love, yearning, and resilience in a family damaged beyond words.”—The Boston Globe “It is Lucy’s gentle honesty, complex relationship with her husband, and nuanced response to her mother’s shortcomings that make this novel so subtly powerful.”—San Francisco Chronicle “A short novel about love, particularly the complicated love between mothers and daughters, but also simpler, more sudden bonds . . . It evokes these connections in a style so spare, so pure and so profound the book almost seems to be a kind of scripture or sutra, if a very down-to-earth and unpretentious one.”—Newsday “Spectacular . . . Smart and cagey in every way. It is both a book of withholdings and a book of great openness and wisdom. . . . [Strout] is in supreme and magnificent command of this novel at all times.”—Lily King, The Washington Post “An aching, illuminating look at mother-daughter devotion.”—People

Book Short Summary:

Mary S. Barton explores counterterrorism in the years between World War I and World War II, starting with the attempted assassination of French Prime Minister George Clemenceau in 1919, and taking the story up to and beyond the double assassination of King Alexander I of Yugoslavia and French Foreign Minister Jean Louis Barthou in 1934. In telling the story of counterterrorism over this period, Barton gives particular emphasis to Britain's attempts to quell revolutionary nationalist movements in India and throughout its empire, and to the Great Powers' combined efforts to counter the activities of the Communist International. Further to this, Barton discusses the establishment of the tools and infrastructure of modern intelligence, including the cooperation between the United Kingdom and United States which would evolve into the Five Eyes intelligence alliance. She gives weight to forgotten terrorism and arms traffic conventions, and explores the facilitating role which the Paris Peace Conference and the League of Nations played in this context. The stories told in Counterterrorism Between the Wars play out across the world, from the remains of the Austro-Hungarian, German, and Russian empires, to the Northwest Frontier and the Bengal Province of British India. A century after the Paris Peace Conference of 1919, Counterterrorism Between the Wars is the first comprehensive study to fit together the mass production of weapons during the Great War with the diplomacy of the interwar era and the rise of state-sponsored terrorism during the 1920s and 1930s.

Book Short Summary:

Local Literacies is a unique detailed study of the role of reading and writing in people’s everyday lives. By concentrating on a selection of people in a particular community in Lancaster, England, the authors analyse how they use literacy in their day-to-day lives. It follows four people in detail examining how they use local media, their participation in public life, the role of literacy in family activities and in leisure pursuits. Links are made between everyday learning and education. The study is based on an ethnographic approach to studying everyday activities and is framed in the theory of literacy as a social practice. This Routledge Linguistics Classic includes a new foreword by Deborah Brandt and a new framing chapter, in which David Barton and Mary Hamilton look at the connections between local and global activities, interfaces with institutional literacies, and the growing significance of digital literacies in everyday life. A seminal text, Local Literacies provides an explicit usable methodology for both teachers and researchers, and clear theorising around a set of six propositions. Clearly written and engaging, this is a deeply absorbing study and is essential reading for all those involved in literacy and literacy education.

Book Short Summary:

“This book offers a range of perspectives on Elizabeth Gaskell and adaptation. The contributors – Alan Shelston, Raffaella Antinucci, Thomas Recchio, Brenda McKay, Katherine Byrne, Patricia Marchesi, Marcia Marchesi and Loredana Salis – discuss the afterlives of Gaskell’s fiction, from the author as adaptor of her own work to the role of the BBC in re-inventing Gaskell’s narratives. Loredana Salis is to be congratulated for bringing together a collection that tackles the remediation of Gaskell’s fiction from Gaskell’s own time to the 21st century, enabling her to join those authors, most prominently, Shakespeare, Austen and Dickens, who have received full-length book studies on adaptations of their work. The collection, as a whole, seems to confirm the notion that since the inception of film, the number of adaptations of an author’s work equates to the writer’s canonical status. No doubt, this book will prompt many more investigations into the adaptability of Elizabeth Gaskell’s fiction.” – Deborah Cartmell, De Montfort University, Leicester

Book Short Summary:

While the Victorian novel famously describes, catalogs, and inundates the reader with things, the protocols for reading it have long enjoined readers not to interpret most of what crowds its pages. The Ideas in Things explores apparently inconsequential objects in popular Victorian texts to make contact with their fugitive meanings. Developing an innovative approach to analyzing nineteenth-century fiction, Elaine Freedgood here reconnects the things readers unwittingly ignore to the stories they tell. Building her case around objects from three well-known Victorian novels—the mahogany furniture in Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre, the calico curtains in Elizabeth Gaskell’s Mary Barton, and “Negro head” tobacco in Charles Dickens’s Great Expectations—Freedgood argues that these things are connected to histories that the novels barely acknowledge, generating darker meanings outside the novels’ symbolic systems. A valuable contribution to the new field of object studies in the humanities, The Ideas in Things pushes readers’ thinking about things beyond established concepts of commodity and fetish.
