The Complete Works of Elizabeth Gaskell [project]
Besides Jane Austen, I consider Elizabeth Gaskell to be my favourite author. She is a somewhat more recent discovery of mine (although, 6 years isn’t that recent, right?) but I like her works just as much (at time more) as Jane Austen’s.
Like Jane Austen, I have read some of her works several times before blogging. However, I only count the works I have read and reviewed towards this project, as I am sure I will reread those works I have already read at one point or another.
I have read any title in bold since I started this blog, the link will take you to my thoughts on the particular title):
- Mary Barton (1848)
- Cranford (1851–3)
- Ruth (1853)
- North and South (1854–5)
- Sylvia’s Lovers (1863)
- Wives and Daughters: An Everyday Story (1865)
