The Penguin English Library edition of North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell

'How am I to dress up in my finery, and go off and away to smart parties, after the sorrow I have seen today?'

Elizabeth Gaskell's compassionate, richly dramatic novel features one of the most original and fully-rounded female characters in Victorian fiction, Margaret Hale. It shows how, forced to move from the country to an industrial northern town, she develops a passionate sense of social justice, and a turbulent relationship with mill-owner John Thornton. North and South depicts a young woman discovering herself, in a nuanced portrayal of what divides people, and what brings them together.

The Penguin English Library - 100 editions of the best fiction in English, from the eighteenth century and the very first novels to the beginning of the First World War.

“A Classic in Victorian Literature”

North and South is a novel I read during my teenage years, and it’s always one that stuck with me. I couldn’t help but notice the similarities between this and Pride and Prejudice. It has romance, but it’s not... More

“Blasphemous”

This is the very first Victorian novel that earns my scathing attack - I have never read anything as poorly written and boring as this. No character is likeable (in spite of the writer's attempts of constructing... More
