  • She was a pioneer, multi-tasking mother... Gaskell's work will always be one of the adornments of liberal Britain

    Guardian
  • People who read her always come away surprised at how modern she sounds. You don't have to think yourself into her century in order to sympathise, since her guiding principle was no more or less than a sense of practical, day-today justice, totally outside the abiding gentleman-lady-peasant-donkey-peasant's wife hierarchy which surrounded her

    Evening Standard
  • Pah! to Dickens. Eat your heart out, Little Nell. That Elizabeth Gaskell could write a death scene to make your socks melt

    Scotsman
