Mary Barton - Elizabeth Gaskell Summary

Roman traduit de l’anglais, préfacé et annoté par : Françoise du Sorbier L’essentiel de l’action se situe en 1839, sur fond de grève des ouvriers des filatures, durement éprouvés par la misère et la maladie. Mary Barton, apprentie couturière, vit seule avec son père, ouvrier des filatures et syndicaliste aux positions radicales. Courtisée à la fois par Jem Wilson, le fils de l’ami de son père, qui souhaite l’épouser, et par Harry Carson, le fils du patron des filatures, elle rejette le premier avant de découvrir les mauvaises intentions du second à son égard. Lorsque Harry Carson est abattu par balle, tout désigne Jem comme le coupable. Mary se démène pour prouver son innocence. Premier roman d’Elizabeth Gaskell, écrit en 1848, Mary Barton suscita une controverse à sa publication à cause de sa représentation sans concessions du monde des ouvriers dans une ville industrielle, Manchester. Le récit, qui tisse plusieurs fils narratifs, est aussi un « roman d’éducation » : il offre une étude très fine, et dépourvue de mièvrerie, de la confusion des sentiments chez une toute jeune fille, tout en maintenant un suspense qui entraîne le lecteur dans une course contre la montre extrêmement tendue.

Elizabeth Gaskell: 'Mary Barton' - Richard Gravil Summary

Gravil shows Mary Barton to be a much more conflicted novel than it is usually thought to be, takes issue with patronizing accounts of Gaskell’s views, and promotes her as an author whose grasp of the political and economic issues of the period runs deeper than is usually acknowledged. The Book considers what it meant to be a Unitarian in the hungry forties, what Gaskell understood of Chartism and ‘political economy’; and attitudes to women’s rights. It discusses the many ambiguities and instabilities in the book – suggesting where the reader may need to take issue with some of the standard critical assumptions about Gaskell’s text, and considers how she might be compared to Dickens – and what Dickens learned from her.And it discusses some contemporary (i.e. Victorian) and recent critical approaches to the book. The aim is to leave the reader with a great deal of respect for a novel that is sometimes underestimated – while pointing out some of its real departures from the best practice of Realist writers, practices that Mrs Gaskell herself did much to invent.

These invaluable, sometimes previously unknown works are of particular interest to scholars and researchers.

Counterterrorism Between the Wars - Mary Barton Summary

Mary Barton explores counterterrorism in the years between World War I and World War II, starting with the attempted assassination of French Prime Minister George Clemenceau in 1919, and taking the story up to and beyond the double assassination of King Alexander I of Yugoslavia and French Foreign Minister Jean Louis Barthou in 1934. In telling the story of counterterrorism over this period, Barton gives particular emphasis to Britain's attempts to quell revolutionary nationalist movements in India and throughout its empire, and to the Great Powers' combined efforts to counter the activities of the Communist International. Further to this, Barton discusses the establishment of the tools and infrastructure of modern intelligence, including the cooperation between the United Kingdom and United States which would evolve into the Five Eyes intelligence alliance. She gives weight to forgotten terrorism and arms traffic conventions, and explores the facilitating role which the Paris Peace Conference and the League of Nations played in this context. The stories told in Counterterrorism Between the Wars play out across the world, from the remains of the Austro-Hungarian, German, and Russian empires, to the Northwest Frontier and the Bengal Province of British India. A century after the Paris Peace Conference of 1919, Counterterrorism Between the Wars is the first comprehensive study to fit together the mass production of weapons during the Great War with the diplomacy of the interwar era and the rise of state-sponsored terrorism during the 1920s and 1930s.

Elizabeth Gaskell's Use of Color in Her Industrial Novels and Short Stories - Katherine Ann Wildt Summary

Elizabeth Gaskell's Use of Color in Her Industrial Novels and Short Stories presents Gaskell's incorporation of Ruskin's moral theory of color to set the tone in her tales as she illustrates the dreary, monotonous existence of nineteenth century industrial workers. Wildt demonstrates the use of various shades, tints, and hues of color to set moral tone, express character feelings, and to foreshadow events as Gaskell establishes and sustains mood in her short stories, and to a greater extent, in her industrial novels. She points out the use of color for foreshadowing events, expressing character's feelings in defining character in Mary Barton, North and South, and Ruth. Focusing on Gaskell's repeated use of the storm cloud motif, Wildt notes its presence on physical and emotional levels to illustrate the bleakness of the trapped condition of working women in the mid-nineteenth century, and that it anticipates Ruskin's future use of "The Storm Cloud."
