Biographie de l'auteur

Elizabeth Cleghorn Gaskell (29 September 1810 – 12 November 1865), often referred to simply as Mrs. Gaskell, was an English novelist and short story writer during the Victorian era. She is perhaps best known for her biography of Charlotte Brontë. Her novels offer a detailed portrait of the lives of many strata of society, including the very poor, and as such are of interest to social historians as well as lovers of literature.

Pour tous ceux qui ont aimé Cranford ce livre est un régal. Elizabeth Gaskell à vraiment un immense talent de conteuse et des personnages sont extraordinairement vivants et détaillés .Une grande partie d'un des récits se situe pendant la révolution française, dont il est intéressant d avoir ici un regard depuis l autre côté de la Manche.Pour les amateurs de langue anglaise le livre recèle quelques petites pépites tout à fait délicieuses.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 As usual, the book is better 9 juin 2010
Par April Sage - Publié sur

I fell in love with the miniseries, Cranford, first. The acting was supurb, the screenplay a delicious blending of previously disconnected elements. It was truly masterfully done. So, I took my time about buying the book. When I finally did, I was happy that I had. All of the moments that made the miniseries such a delight were there, and more. The book, Cranford Chronicals is a must have for those who love Victorian novels.

This review is for the iPad version of the Chronicals, or at least one story from it. I purchased all three stories for my iPad, so I could read them on the go: Mr. Harrison's Confession, Cranford, and My Lady Ludlow. This review specifically involves My Lady Ludlow. Though, as I've said, I cannot fault the miniseries in any way (it was sheer delight), if it had a weak point that would be the characterization of Lady Ludlow. She was portrayed as a strong willed woman, though a wounded soul, which is correct, but she was something less than completely sympathetic. Her decision to deny education to a young boy seemed arbitrary and mean spirited. The implication seemed to be that she was aristocratic, and that pride was her main motivation there. Reading the original story gives a much clearer picture of her motivations, making her a much more sympathetic character. She wants to do right, she has merely misjudged due to her unusual experiences. Both versions of the story (the miniseries & the original) are well executed, but I think the book is better. It gives us a unique vision that is lacking in the miniseries, which frankly has fallen into the easier route of cliched motivations here. Gaskell's version is well worth the read.

Oh, and did I mention the addition of a comical character, who made me laugh out loud repeatedly? Yes, it is touching and humourous as well, like all great British Literature. Enjoy.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Like Cranford, only without the sex and violence 2 février 2014

Lady Ludlow is a widow of means. She brings young women to live with her...young women of good families and education, that is, who have fallen upon hard times. She trains them to sit and stand and embroider like ladies, respect titles (Ladies, not ladies), use the correct silverware, converse on the right topics, and enjoy the daily life of a small village...without mixing it up with the locals. When a new curate comes to town, all fiery with radical ideas (read the book, we're not talking Abbe Hoffman radical, we're talking open seating in church rather than by social rank), things get exciting. Okay, not exciting, but moving. Okay, not moving, but, well, ert. As in the opposite of inert.

Nothing much happens, but still, My Lady Ludlow manages, somehow, to retain interest. It is a well-done and detailed look at the period, somewhere around 1810. Clothes, furnishings, manners...even the crazy idea of educating farmworkers children, are described for us in delicious detail. Nothing much happens, but hey, I love Pride & Prejudice and it's not exactly "Breaking Bad" in terms of action. Just a little window into how people lived.
If you enjoyed Gaskell's Cranford novels, or her Wives and Daughters (even better), you'll enjoy this dainty little book. It deserves a couple of hours and a cup of really good tea in a very pretty china cup. Indulge. It can't kill ya.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Change comes to Hanbury.... 30 août 2008
Par HMS Warspite - Publié sur

Elizabeth Gaskell, author of "Cranford" and other excellent stories of mid-19th century England, winds the clock back in a charming tale of change. "My Lady Ludlow" is the story of the small rural village of Hanbury around the year 1800, its ways unchanged for centuries. The noble Lady Ludlow presides over the village, kind-hearted but firm in her beliefs in the existing social order and the evils of too much education. Her ways are challenged by, among others, a young and earnest clergyman who wants to build a schoolhouse, and her own estate steward, who wishes to improve the son of a local poacher.

The story is narrated by one Margaret Dawson, a distant and poor relative of Lady Ludlow, who is offered the chance to be properly raised as a gentlewoman. Margaret is witness to a series of episodes involving different people in the village, whose lives all seem eventually to intersect in the person of Lady Ludlow. The Lady Ludlow, despite her attachment to old ways, is too kind and too sensible not to do the right thing for her friends, employees, and tenants. Her dispute with her steward, for example, weaves through most of the book, before being resolved by a decisive act of kindness by the steward that saves Lady Ludlow and the young boy. This and other story twists that brings her to the right thing are often told with humor but filled with acute insight into human nature.

Gaskell has captured the genuine push and pull of real people trying to adapt to changing times. Her insights are honest ones; there are no heroes or villains, only real people dealing with real life. The Lady Ludlow's prejudice against education, for example, are given a plausible basis in a hair-raising and ultimately tragic story about two refugees from the French Revolution whom the Lady attempts to help. Gaskell has captured the flavor and texture of a by-gone era in "My Lady Ludlow."

Some of the characters and episodes from "My Lady Ludlow" were adapted into the BBC/Masterpiece Theater presentation "Cranford." "My Lady Ludlow" is highly recommended to fans of Masterpiece Theater as the rest of the story and as a fine example of Elizabeth Gaskell's work.
1.0 étoiles sur 5 I feel conned... 30 mai 2013

I am a HUGE Gaskell fan, I have read and re-read many of her books so I purchased this one. It was okay, but honestly the reading experience was negated if not ruined by the frequent typos and misspellings. If any publisher no matter how small is going to publish a book, especially a relatively short book, they should thoroughly proof the book. I question if this was even written by Gaskell, it seems a sham. I feel as though I was conned out of $10. And the story itself does not really add to my enjoyment. I suggest re-reading one of her other titles published by a legitimate publisher.

As a matter of habit, I choose not to review the reviews so to speak, preferring to read the snippets of the book itself. I was therefore pleasantly surprised halfway through to realize the story sounded familiar and did a bit of research to eventually uncover the Cranford/Lady Ludlow connection.

I happen to like the era very much and was pleased to see that "Mrs." Gaskell was a contemporary of John Ruskin, Charles Dickens and Charlotte Bronte (in fact wrote her biography).

The staid progression (some may term it plodding) kept my attention as it dealt with issues of social class, aristocracy, religious and political views of the times.

There were a number of errors which I could not discern whether they were British variants (offence, skilful, vulgarising), typos: coarse for course, sweet woodroof for woodruff, ancle for ankle, n'er do weel for well or simply transliteration problems by volunteers for the Gutenberg Project.

I found the text to encompass numerous issues of the times with observations on social strata, role of women, and education among the perceived inferior classes. The quaint verbiage and old-fashioned morals were definitely a sign of the times.

I enjoyed the foray into times past but was mildly aghast at the whirlwind wrap-up at the end of the book.
