They are marvelous creations. I think I am looking for a better biography. View all 7 comments. Feb 28, Michael rated it it was amazing Shelves: group-read , victorians-group-read.
My first time reading this Elizabeth Gaskell masterpiece and a masterpiece it truly is. To me, this author is a virtuoso at character development.
The two main characters, Molly Gibson and her step-sister, Cynthia are brilliant creations. In fact, just about all the major characters presented are subtly drawn, imbued with both good and bad traits.
They feel genuine, not like the caricatures or archetypes one sometimes finds in other Victorian period novels. As a reader you enjoy spending time wi My first time reading this Elizabeth Gaskell masterpiece and a masterpiece it truly is.
As a reader you enjoy spending time with these people and sharing their experiences in this small, provincial world.
Another area where Ms. Gaskell excels is dialog. It is mainly a book about family relationships and, as such, much of the plot is driven by the many conversations which flow from these relationships.
Again, the conversations feel authentic, capturing the essence of each speaker thus developing an even more intimate and moving relationship with the reader.
I look forward to reading more of Ms. View 1 comment. Wives and Daughters is Elizabeth Gaskell's final novel which was interrupted in its completion due to the untimely death of the author.
However incomplete it may be to the end, I found the book to be a completed work with beautiful writing, an interesting set of characters and a good storyline.
At a time when the "sensational" novels were in the peak of its popularity, Gaskell courageously took to writing this realist story which she called "An Everyday Story".
The story mainly revolves around th Wives and Daughters is Elizabeth Gaskell's final novel which was interrupted in its completion due to the untimely death of the author.
The story mainly revolves around three families: the Gibsons; the Hamleys; and the aristocratic family of Cumnors. And family relations are at the root of the story.
The father-daughter relationship, father-sons relationship, father-stepdaughter relationship, mother-daughter relationship, and mother-stepdaughter relationship are subtly and touchingly portrayed.
There is such warmth and sympathy in Gaskell's writing when she dwells on these family relations. There is also a love story, rather a love triangle between three main characters of the story - Roger Hamley, Cynthia, and Molly Gibson.
While Roger falls in love with beautiful Cynthia, Molly repines for the lost attention, not truly understanding that she harbours a love so deep for Roger.
Molly is depressed with Cynthia's marked indifference and inconsistency in her love for Roger, which according to Molly is a rare prize.
Roger on the other hand, who though formerly bewitched by Cynthia's beauty and charm soon realizes the blind error of his infatuation and discovers where his true love lay, which is in Molly.
The future development of these two goodhearted characters was unfortunately interrupted by the untimely demise of the author.
However, a possible ending has been outlined by the editor of the Cornhill Magazine, in which the story was serialized, basing on notes and an outline that the author has left behind for the few unwritten chapters.
Unfortunately, we readers were not privileged to read the ending in her own florid writing. Apart from the family relationship and the love story, the book touches on a variety of wider concepts.
The class difference is one. The old Hamley whose ancestral roots run to a time before the Conquest sees that any alliance between his sons with the daughters of Dr.
Gibson, a "medical man" with no worthy connection as unsuitable. Gaskell emphasizes this point by showing that even though the old Hamley considers Molly Gibson as nearly as a daughter of his own, still he dreads the union between her and any of his sons.
Then Gaskell touches upon the strongly held political allegiances of the day. Hamleys are Tories from the time of remembrance and the Cumnors are Whigs.
There is an interesting rivalry penned by Gaskell between the two families. When Roger Hamley, a budding scientist was invited to the Towers, which is the home of Lord Cumnor, old Hamley forces the son to decline it on the ground that it would be a disregard for family principles to have any intercourse with the Whigs.
Through this, Gaskell shows the reader the extremity of political rivalry. Although these political rivalries and strongly held prejudices on class were later relaxed towards the end of the story, it was disturbing to read the amount of discrimination that prevailed in the early 19th century British society.
There are also general themes such as women's position in society, their education, patriarchal dominance, social values, and conventions that have been touched upon.
Gibson, being a medical man himself, holds the opinion that his daughter, Molly, should not be "educated". It showed how the opinion was held on women's education even by learned men at that time.
And the most interesting, which I have not yet come across in a Victorian novel, is Gaskell's touch on the future scientific developments.
Through the character of Roger Hamley, who was said to have been modeled on the famous naturalist Charles Darwin, Gaskell's cousin, the author eagerly writes on the future scientific developments which are on its way.
The story and its themes have been explored by Gaskell with the use of an interesting set of characters. Molly Gibson is the author's heroine.
She is strong, courageous, and kind; yet shy and timid. She is the epitome of goodness. There were certain resemblances of her to Margaret Hale in North and South, but Molly was, to me, the better heroine.
Her stepsister Cynthia is pretty and charming but selfish, self-centered, and shallow. The author is very sympathetic towards this faulty character and alludes that her faults were due to neglectful parenting.
Gibson, the second wife of Dr. Gibson is a pretentious and mercenary woman. Her character provided the needed comic relief to the story while old Hamley too contributed to a certain degree.
Gibson provided solidity to the story. Roger Hamley is our hero. He is goodhearted, selfless, and learned. He represents the generation of social, political reform, and scientific evolution.
On the contrary, old Hamley represents the dying feudalism. The beauty of this work lies in the story as well as in Gaskell's excellent writing.
It is more polished and developed from her days of writing North and South which was done nearly a decade earlier. And surprisingly, her writing is quite satirical, which is a new development from her early days of writing.
I wonder whether it is the Dickens influence Charles Dickens was a close friend of Elizabeth Gaskell that altered her writing style. Overall, it was a brilliant book and was a very rewarding read.
And although I have finished the read, the story and the characters, especially Molly and Roger still linger on my mind.
At the moment this is sitting at a 3. I definitely enjoyed it, but I didn't LOVE it, and there's the fact that this book isn't complete which is hella rude.
How dare Elizabeth Gaskell die before finishing this book?! They were unbelievably annoying. I highly recommend watching the BBC mini series adaptation because the ending is delightful and it's a wonderful adaptation!
What really strikes me is how Gaskell portrays character — there are no definite heroes or villains, because she presents such a complete picture of who her characters are and why they possess their faults and how they think.
I felt for them all because they are well-developed and genuine in their faults as well as their virtues. I liked that almost all of the characters were trying to do the right thing and live their lives honestly, however they understood that to be, as well as acknowledging their failures in this.
This is quite an endearing, touching novel and even though it was quite long, I think that I could have read another pages of it.
Some things that I will keep thinking about will be names and how they change in the novel, the title and the significance of female relationships, and how clever and simply funny Gaskell was in portraying Mrs.
Gibson's vain absurdities. What a wonderful novel. An epic novel of English country life in the s. I loved Molly and most of the people around her.
What a talented writer Gaskell was—the characters seem to practically come alive. Jul 29, Jessica rated it it was amazing Shelves: educational-challenge , own , theclassics.
How did I not know about this book sooner? In fact, let's all pause to ponder why authors like the Brontes and Austen get so much love, so much fan fiction.
I mean, here is a mother not unlike Mrs. Bennet, just one step away from having "nerves" and "flutterings" and all the while deeply concerned with.
Here is a daughter who doesn't honestly ca Wow. Here is a daughter who doesn't honestly care about love or marriage, but just cannot stop playing the coquette, and then complaining when men keep proposing to her!
Here's sweet Molly, who cannot flirt to save her life, but has both a keen mind and a tender heart that makes her loved by all. Gaskell's writing is very clear and precise, with a sly, dry wit to it.
This was her final work, and she died before it was finished. There is an editor's note that was written at the book's first publication indicating how matters would have ended all that is lacking, really, is an epilogue.
Dec 06, Anne rated it it was amazing Shelves: fiction , reread , favorites , britain , classics , In this beautifully rendered Victorian novel we come to know well various characters living within the mores of their times in a small English village near London.
The language and dialogue is exquisite and brings the characters to life. Most of the characters in this novel are beautifully flawed, all in their own distinct ways and in all their complexity and humanity.
We follow Molly and her father, Mr. Gibson, who are not flawed in the least, in my opinion. I adored both of them and the love a In this beautifully rendered Victorian novel we come to know well various characters living within the mores of their times in a small English village near London.
I adored both of them and the love and trust between the two of them was thoroughly endearing. Then we have the Hamleys, father and two very different sons who take very different paths in life.
The most flawed character is the one who brought humor to the novel. I loved both cringing and laughing at the self-centered, narcissistic and hypocritical Mrs.
Hyacinath Gibson, step-mother to Molly. I don't recall enjoying and laughing so much at the ridiculousness of a character while reading a Victorian novel.
She reminds me of many other Victorian characters but Gaskill outdid herself in the portrayal of a woman who was a product of the times in which she lived as well as the specific circumstances of her life.
In those times, women had no power but that of their beauty and their charm. For the likes of Mrs. Gibson who strived to be accepted and have her own daughter, Cynthia, marry into the upper classes she believed that ingratiation, self-interest, manipulation and deception were necessary, and probably they were within that world of distinct class divisions.
Much intrigue and mystery abounds for two of our characters adding another layer of interest to the story. I was so involved with the characters in this novel that it is difficult to leave them and their world behind.
I feel sorry for the next book I attempt to read. View all 23 comments. Nov 25, Kelly rated it really liked it Shelves: its-the-quiet-ones , owned , 19th-century , brit-lit , fiction , victorian.
But she really won me over as soon as she provided me with an excellent audience proxy for me to cast myself as early on- Lady Harriet ftw, am I right?
Then I could really get comfortable. Molly is goddamn adorable, Mr. In my fanfic, she gets the second option, because I think she could turn it around, but because life is Victorian England life, it was probably the former.
Oh, oh! Gaskell told her editors what she wanted the ending to be, for the most part, but she died a few chapters before she finished.
So you do get to kind of Choose Your Own Adventure, so yay! But the ending is half an obituary, so kind of a downer a little bit? Overall, this was kinda like reading a really smart, satirical middlebrow domestic novel, probably written for the same audience those are written for today.
Some overly shlocky moments and overdone metaphors, but more than worth it in the end, waayyyyy better than North and South.
So yeah, Lady Harriet and I will be over here in the corner drinking the tea, enjoying the show and standing up for Molly as required.
Come join us! Towards the end of last year I spent many happy hours visiting a world so perfectly realised that it still lifts my heart when I think of it.
I stepped into the middle of the s, into the English countryside that Mrs Gaskell knew so well, I met people who were so real, fallible, interesting, and I became caught up in their lives and their stories.
At the centre of it all was Molly Gibson, the only child of a widowed doctor. The apple of his eye. In a lovely prologue she was twelve years old and Towards the end of last year I spent many happy hours visiting a world so perfectly realised that it still lifts my heart when I think of it.
In a lovely prologue she was twelve years old and she had been taken The Towers, home of the Duke of Cumnor, for a day of grand entertainments.
Molly had a lovely time, but there was just one oversight: she was left behind, napping on a big bed, when the carriages drove away.
I loved Molly from the start, her love for her father and for her world, her openness, her honesty. I felt that we were friends, looking at the world together as the story unfolded.
We met again when Molly was seventeen, and her father sent her to visit the family of the local squire. He would always be first in her hear but she became a daughter to a mother of sons, a sister to those sons, and a particular favourite of their father.
And so the stage was set for a story that would move between the aristocracy, the old gentry and the new professional classes.
And a story that would say much about a changing world, as one of the young men Molly came to love as a brother was drawn to the arts and romanticism, the other was drawn to science and exploration, and their father clung to his home, his land, his heredity.
All of that is there to ponder, and a glorious plot unfolds. Hyancinth, who was beautiful but terribly, terribly grand, terribly aware of appearances and social position, had been governess to the family of Duke of Cumnor, and she brought with her a daughter.
Cynthia was bold, confident, and yet she was terribly vulnerable, and though they were very different, had very different ideas about their futures, they became firm friends.
The story holds so much. Fortunes rise and fall. There are births, marriages and deaths. There is domesticity, there is society, and there is travel.
And there are secrets, and they will have such consequences… All life is there, from quiet domesticity to grand events, and through everything in between.
And lives are lived. A broad cast of characters — no not characters, people, because everyone is so perfectly drawn — live, love, make mistakes, learn, enjoy good or bad fortune, feel every emotion under the sun ….
There are so many wonderful scenes, so many moments that strike a chord. The depth of understanding is obvious and the writing is beautiful. Mrs Gaskell has a wonderfully light touch, an instinctive understanding of when linger and when to pass on, and always finds exactly the right words.
And I know that I will always remember this world, and that it will keep calling me back. View all 3 comments. Molly Gibson is a kind-hearted, intelligent, sensitive girl who is thrown into society when her father, the equally sensible but far more sarcastic Mr.

Cynthia and Molly immediately become best friends, but Cynthia is so constantly charming young men that by trying to help her get out of scrapes Molly's own reputation suffers.
Easily one of the most charming, romantic Victorian novels I've ever read. Victorian novels generally put so much emphasis on morals or virtues that I find alien and silly, or are so long-winded in their explanations, descriptions, and dialog, that I grow quite out of patience with them.
Instead, Gaskell seems to have a good deal of sympathy for characters like Cynthia, who would have been treated very severely by authors like Trollop or Bradden, and quietly pokes fun at the sexist, classist, xenophobic notions of her main characters.
She seems to like her characters, and want to explain them to her readers, instead of trying to use them as puppets to force her readers into higher morals.
Gaskell is nearly as witty as Dickens, but turns her attention in much the same direction as Austen, with that same satirical edge to her domestic descriptions.
Gaskell is particularly adept at portraying characters' personalities and interests through dialog alone. It ends on a satisfying note, however, so though one does not get to actually read the resolution, one is not left without hope that it did take place.
In a way, by ending this novel before view spoiler [the hero and heroine confess their love for each other, hide spoiler ] one is left to resolve it in the manner most satisfactory to oneself, and not bound to the author's choices.
Nov 26, Debra rated it liked it. There is noting like not being able to renew a book and having to return it to the library to set a fire under me, which is what I needed with this book.
I had a really hard time getting into it. It dragged and dragged in the beginning for me. After over pages, it began to become enjoyable but I still had to force myself to read it.
Honestly, it wasn't until the Character of Cynthia came into the book, that I began to warm up to the book. This Whew! This is a long book that ends abruptly due to the authors death.
But in the book, we see a marriage, a step Mother who isn't quite evil but isn't quite warm and loving either, a tarnished reputation Molly's when she attempts to get Cynthia's letters back, a healed reputation, engagements, love, a secret marriage, death, and the aspect of new love.
I ended up enjoying it but didn't love it. Jun 27, K. Trigger warnings: mental health, death of a friend, blackmail??
Also, the more I reread it, the more it becomes apparent to me that Molly has some serious depression going on in the second half of the book.
And, like, rightly so! She's stuck in the middle of some awful shit. But yeah. It's depression, pure and simple. And that makes me love this just a little bit more than I did before, which I didn't even know was possible.
High five from beyon Trigger warnings: mental health, death of a friend, blackmail?? High five from beyond the grave, Gaskell. I've been reading and rereading this book since That is a long ass time.
So that fifth star up there? Yeah, that is one hundred percent nostalgia talking. Sorry, Kirsti from It's got a fifth star now.
I love the story. I love the characters. I love the writing. I love all of the things. Except for the part where Gaskell died before finishing the story, but whatever.
I'm used to it now I first came across this story through the BBC miniseries in , and loved it as only a sixteen year old could.
Fast forward to , and the book turned out to be on the syllabus for an English subject that I took in first year uni titled "The Classic Victorian Novel".
I love everything about this book. The characters are rich and well described and completely individual. Their emotions are beautifully written, their dialogue is often witty or sassy or sarcastic while other characters are completely superficial.
He manages to overcome his xenophobia and prejudice against Aimee's Catholicism and asks them both to live with him.
As he resettles into the local scientific community, Roger begins to realise that his affection for Molly is more than that of a brother for a sister.
Aided by the kind interference of Lady Harriet, who has always recognised Molly's worth and charms, he finds himself pained at the thought of Molly with anyone else.
Still, he hesitates at giving in to his feelings, feeling unworthy of her love after throwing away his affection on the fickle Cynthia.
Before he returns to Africa, he confides his feelings to Mr Gibson, who heartily gives his blessing to the union. Roger is thwarted, this time by a scarlet fever scare, in his attempt to speak to Molly before he leaves.
At this point, Gaskell's novel stops, unfinished at her death. She related to a friend that she had intended Roger to return and present Molly with a dried flower a gift Molly gave him before his departure , as proof of his enduring love.
This scene was never realised and the novel remains unfinished. In the BBC adaptation, an alternative ending was written in which Roger is unable to leave Molly without speaking of his love, and they marry and return to Africa together.
