This was Elizabeth Gaskell s first novel and it shows It s signficantly less assured than her better known works North and South Cranford and Wives and Daughters The eponymous heroine is at times annoying although she grows in stature as the work progresses and the narrative has a number of those features which make some readers avoid Victorian fiction a leisurely pace wordiness preachiness sentimentality and melodrama The novel starts very slowly At the half way mark the pace picks up and it turns into an interesting court room drama which would be even interesting if the outcome had not been predictable The last uarter of the novel falls off somewhat as Gaskell s preaching kicks into high gear That said Gaskell writes well and is a good storyteller notwithstanding the signficant implausibility of some parts of the narrative such as view spoiler the fact that all it takes for Mary to realise she is in love with Jem is to reject his proposal of marriage hide spoiler

Mary Barton was an important landmark in 19th century English literature in that possibly than even any Charles Dickens novel it raises awareness of the plight of the poverty stricken English working classesUnlike most of Dickens work Elizabeth Gaskell places working class people at the center of her novel novel rather than the periphery The central point of the novel as is Engels The Condition of the Working Class in England Oxford World s Classics is how men and women starved and children died and children died while their employers lived off the fat of the landThe exploitation and suffering of the British poor at this time was every bit as cruel and exploitative as that of the slaves in the coloniesThe novel captures the clashes of the time between the wealthy employers and the labourers is dramatized by personal strugglesCentral to the story is the trade unionist and his daughter Mary Barton caught between two lovers of opposing classes the honest young worker Jem and the son of an industrialist Henry CarsonThe fallen woman Esther is to me perhaps the most tragic figure of the novel determined to save Mary from what she sees as similar fate Esther was jilted too by a soldier who pretended he loved her and forced to sell her body to survive though she sees her own life as all but destroyed Hence the despised street prostitute shows great inner nobility of characterMary Barton is important reading to gain an insight into working class life in the 19th century And that of the exploitation by employers It helps us understand the why the native British working classes have had a history of suffering and exploitation every bit as cruel as their counterparts who originated in the Third world

    PDF NEW [Mary Barton] Mary Barton is a wonderful failure of a novel in all of the classic Victorian ways–the love plot is overwrought the ending is melodramatic the moralizing is far too heavy and the epigraphs are obnoxious But somehow in the middle of all those problems Elizabeth Gaskell manages to capture perfectly something important Mary Barton is a Condition of England novel a meditation on the plight of Manchester cotton w
