Private voices the diaries of Elizabeth Gaskell and Sophia Holland ( Book )
8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 569 libraries worldwide
These two diaries, by the nineteenth-century novelist Elizabeth Gaskell and her cousin Sophia Holland, provide us with uniquely personal and revealing accounts of Victorian womanhood and motherhood. They record the first few years of life of Marianne (Elizabeth Gaskell's daughter) and Edward Thurstan (Sophia's son). This is the first critical edition of the Gaskell diary, previously published in a limited edition of only fifty copies in 1923, and the first ever publication of the Holland diary. As a piece of social history, these diaries document the challenges, dilemmas and rewards of Victorian parenthood. As a piece of literature, there is no doubt that, in cultivating the powers of observation to be found in her diary, Elizabeth was laying the foundations for the wider social vision to be found in her novels.

Gothic tales by Elizabeth Cleghorn Gaskell ( Book )
7 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in English and held by 483 libraries worldwide
"An encounter with the supernatural in an everyday setting accentuates its strangeness; a truth used to eerie effect in Gaskell's Gothic tales. A portrait turned to the wall, a hidden manuscript, a mysterious child that lives on the freezing moors, a doppelganger formed by a women's bitter curse: all of these things hint at male tyranny and woman as avenging angel - or devil." "Gaskell was fascinated by the dualities in women's lives and the way in which fact and fiction merge. 'Disappearances', a mix of gossip, legend and fact, relates stories of mysterious vanishings, 'Lois the Witch', a novella based on an account of the Salem witch hunts, shows how sexual desire and jealousy lead to communal hysteria and persecution, while 'The Grey Woman' explores a common Gothic theme, the way in which the ghosts of the past always return to haunt us."--BOOK JACKET.

Lois the witch by Elizabeth Cleghorn Gaskell ( Book )
13 editions published between 1860 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 253 libraries worldwide
"A young English orphan arrives in America to be greeted by an atmosphere of shadowy terror and a wave of Puritan suspicion. She settles with her uncle's family in Salem, Massachusetts, on the eve of the world's most notorious witch hunt." "Lois Barclay is a typical ingenue: a well of affection and understanding waiting to be tapped. The New England she experiences, however, is prey to a host of fears - of Indians, of witches, of the Evil One himself. Lois finds all her attempts at friendship misunderstood, her Anglican upbringing a source of mistrust and censure, and her very attractiveness a potential curse. In this moving novella, Gaskell provides a fictionalised account of one of the victims of the Salem witch trials of 1692, using it to highlight the very human dangers of religious bigotry and sexual repression."--BOOK JACKET.
