Mary Barton de Elizabeth Gaskell (1848)

    Emma de Jane Austen (kara.shamy)
    kara.shamy: In some ways the heroines in these two novels are alike, but they are very different in other respects, and more strikingly, their respective journeys to the altar/married life go in diametrically opposite ways, in a sense! Both are true classics in my estimation; reading these two novels exposes the reader to two of the greatest English-language novelists of all time in the height of their respective powers. While all readers and critics do not and will not share this superlative view, few would dispute these are two early female masters of the form and are well worth a read on that humbler basis ;) Enjoy!… (mais)

The first 200 pages of this book are dark, very dark. The people are caught in the center of the early days of the industrial revolution in the city in the center of those changes - Manchester. The downside of the unbridled capitalist factories was chewing the people to pieces and this story describes it all. The nascent unions, the death and despair, the poverty the hunger the caste system or rather class system now moving to manufacturing rather than land ownership. Unlike Charles Dickens who described some of the same his stories always had some hope of redemption. That's not here. I had just about given up on finishing this book, too much dark for me. And then it changed dramatically for the remaining 250+ pages.

One of the characters is murdered. Mary and the one she really loves, Jem, are pretty sure they know who did it but they aren't talking to each other as Mary has rebuffed Jem and not been able to retract it yet. But everyone else believes that Jem was guilty and there's lots of circumstantial evidence pointing to him. The person killed was one of the masters and his father is determined to have Jem hung within a week or so. Everyone is convinced it's a "slam dunk". A policeman had seen Jem threaten the murdered man just a day or so before. The story is now can Mary find a missing man who can supply an alibi which will free Jem and can Mary let Jem know how she really feels.
This is a real cliff hanger but there's a catch, if Jem gets off who is the real murderer? Freeing Jem only heightens the likelihood the person that both Mary and Jem want to protect will be found out. I won't spoil the story but all does get resolved. Religion plays a major role. These are pious if not church going people.

The second part of the book really redeems the rest. I recommend skimming much of the first half. And some suspension of disbelief is definitely required. ( )

Brilliant, heartbreaking depiction of the life of the working class of Manchester in the bad times ...
So appalling that this was true. Wonder if the "masters"were influenced by this book....loses that spirit after the murder,rather changed,but still very readable.So many characters die,but that was true to life,apart from the last two were it seemed a bit too of a convenience...but I begin to nit pick....I cry buckets over Mrs Gaskills books,and they are full of heart and sympathy.

Life for the Victorian poor and a murder to solve. ( )

Really enjoyed the first half of the novel, found the second half a slog. I wish Gaskell had been less quick to forgive the 'masters'! ( )

I really enjoyed listening to this book. It detailed the heart-wrenching plight the poor endured in Victorian England. It was written around the time Dickens was writing his earlier novels. It went into the desparate measures people can resort to out of deprivation and desparation, from prostitution to murder. So sad that many of our ancestors endured (and some people still do) such horrid living conditions in many parts of the world throughout history. Such needless suffering that all could have (and still could be) prevented. ( )

There are some fields near Manchester, well known to the inhabitants as 'Green Heys Fields,' through which runs a public footpath to a little village about two miles distant.
Mary Barton owes its inception to very personal events, hinted at in the first sentence of the Preface ('circumstances that need not be more fully alluded to'). (Introduction)
Three years ago I became anxious (from circumstances that need not be more fully alluded to) to employ myself in writing a work of fiction. (Preface)
