Elizabeth Gaskell's House
That Lass o’ Lowrie’s tells the story of a remarkable ‘pit brow lassie’ (woman coal worker) Joan Lowrie, while Haworth’s offers a rags to riches to rags tale from the foundry floor. Manchester -born Burnett admired Elizabeth Gaskell and here Prof Sanders explores how her industrial novels reflect both Mary Barton (1848) and North and South (1854-55). Did she shamelessly copy or subtly adapt Elizabeth’s famous novels? Join us for a closer looking at two classic women writers.
‘It was absolutely superb – very informative and delivered with authority ‘ Visitor to previous Prof Sanders event
