Elizabeth Gaskell's Cranford: A Publishing History

Front Cover
Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., 2009 - History - 273 pages
Tracing the publishing history of Elizabeth Gaskell's Cranford from its initial 1851-53 serialization in Dickens's Household Words through its numerous editions and adaptations, Recchio focuses especially the text's deployment in support of ideas related to nation and national identity on both sides of the Atlantic. Making extensive use of primary materials, Recchio offers a convincing micro-history of the way English literature was positioned in England and the United States to support an Anglocentric cultural project.
