Mary Barton: A Tale of Manchester Life

Synopsis

A touching story of love, death, and forgiveness, Elizabeth Gaskell's Mary Barton vividly dramatizes the suffering and successes, conflicts and plights of the poverty-stricken Manchester of the 1840s. Easson pays close attention to the text, employing the fifth edition as Gaskell's final and most careful version of her work, but incorporating 74 substantive variants. This edition also includes three appendices and comprehensive explanatory notes.
