Summary
In this close reading of her fiction, Terence Wright shows how Mrs Gaskell's poetic realism illuminates human, and particularly female, psychology, including the need for self-creating values if women are to retain their integrity in a society which seeks to label them as 'angels', 'witches' or 'martyrs'. Gaskell also deals with issues of concern to both sexes - the relation of the contingent and the absolute, the power of words, and the need to see a meaning in the shape of our lives. But above all Gaskell's voice speaks for the loving and suffering individual, and her trust that we have 'all one human heart'
