Elizabeth Cleghorn Gaskell
(1810 - 1865)

Elizabeth Gaskell

Being the daughter of a Unitarian Minister and wife of William Gaskell, the Unitarian Minister of Cross Street Chapel in Manchester, the underlying principles by which Elizabeth analysed individual character and society were religious.

Using as primary sources her NOVELS, SHORT-STORIES, and LIFE OF CHARLOTTE BRONTE, the role of religion in the nineteenth century will be examined in the appropriate ESSAYS and BIOGRAPHIES.
