Critics’ Reviews

“Another splendid edition from Broadview with the usual high standard of helpful footnotes. Among the appendices in this volume are Gaskell’s letters about writing the novel; contemporary reviews; essays and reports from the 1840s on industrialization, Chartism, emigration, prostitution and conditions in Manchester; brief selections from related fiction and poetry; and a very intelligible short summary of dates and events that shape the novel’s politics.” — Sally Mitchell, Temple University
