Cranford (Oxford Worlds Classics) by Elizabeth Gaskell

`Cranford is in possession of the Amazons; all the holders of houses, above a certain rent, are women.In this witty and poignant comedy of early-Victorian life in a country town, Elizabeth Gaskell describes the uneventful lives of the lady-like inhabitants so as to offer an ironic commentary on the diverse experiences of men and women. She explores the unlikely juxtapositions of old and new brought about by the pace of change: the effects of Victorian commerce and imperial expansion co-exist with the survival of customs and habits of thought from much earlier times. This edition has detailednotes and a new introduction which discusses the originality and subtlety of the books angle on womens experience.
