    Pride and Prejudice wouldn t have been a bad title for this comparative study of English society in the midst of the Industrial Revolution I must say that I was prejudiced against it before starting, and have to swallow my pride and admit I was wrong I thought it would be a dry copy cat version of Hard Times, as the circumstances of its publication seemed to suggest that But never trust your prejudices that is what I learned from reading this highly entertaining and original story, and it Pride and Prejudice wouldn t have been a bad title for this comparative study of English society in the midst of the Industrial Revolution I must say that I was prejudiced against it before starting, and have to swallow my pride and admit I was wrong I thought it would be a dry copy cat version of Hard Times, as the circumstances of its publication seemed to suggest that But never trust your prejudices that is what I learned from reading this highly entertaining and original story, and it also constitutes the enduring message of the unfolding plot.A clash of cultures in miniature, between the traditional life style and manners of the South, and the raw, harsh, booming manufacturer ways of the North, it offers plenty of opportunities to play on different layers of pride and prejudice The ch...

    So about 5 years ago a friend and I were fangirling about Jane Austen generally and debating the merits of the various film adaptations of Pride and Prejudice Colin Firth and Elizabeth Garvie from the 1980 BBC version FTW, by the way and she says, You have to watch this and hands me a couple of DVDs of North and South And I say thank you but I m thinking to myself, well, Patrick Swayze was pretty hot back in the day, but why on earth is she giving me DVDs of a U.S Civil War miniseries So about 5 years ago a friend and I were fangirling about Jane Austen generally and debating the merits of the variou...

    I can t quite put my finger on why I love this book quite as much as I do And even for someone who does re read books as much as I do, to get through 3 copies of one book is quite a feat For me, the most remarkable achievement of Gaskell is that she is able to combine so many elements of various 19th century novelistic traditions and yet not have the novel collapse into incomprehensibility.The broad scope of the novel, coupled with insightful depth and comment means that each reading of the bo I can t quite put my finger on why I love this book quite as much as I do And even for someone who does re read books as much as I do, to get through 3 copies of one book is quite a feat For me, the most remarkable achievement of Gaskell is that she is able to combine so many elements of various 19th century novelistic traditions and yet not have the novel collapse into incomprehensibility.The broad scope of the novel, coupled with insightful depth and comment means that each reading of the book can offer something new Read it as a straight forward or not love story, a fictional romantic biography Then discover the class politics that run through the novel Or perhaps the debate as the title suggests between the rapidly industrialising north and thegentrified south Or the sexual and gender politics that create a constant thematic pulse throughout the b...

    I read this because I d seen the BBC production, and wondered if Margaret Hale would be less silly in the book North and South sounds like it should be about social and geographic divisions, but it s actually about finding balance amidst constant change Although I found her character annoyingly reactive, the Miss Hale of the novel is decidedly less silly than she of the movie.I ve read comparisons of Mr Thornton to Jane Austen s Mr Darcy, but I don t personally see much likeness aside from I read this because I d seen the BBC production, and wondered if Margaret Hale would be less silly in the book North and South sounds like it should be about social and geographic divisions, but it s actually about finding balance amidst constant change Although I found her character annoyingly reactive, the Miss Hale of the novel is decidedly less silly than she of the movie.I ve read comparisons of Mr Thornton to Jane Austen s Mr Darcy, but I don t personally see much likeness aside from a tendency to scowl I actually preferred the BBC s Mr Thornton, as he talked less and scowledthan Mr Thornton in the book Plus, he was played by Richard Armitage, which is never a bad thing.My favorite characters are Mrs Thornton Mr Thornton s strict, severe mother , and Mr Be...

    Prelepi klasik po kome je pre nekoliko godina snimljena nova serija koja je bozanstvena, onako kako samo Britanci umeju da urade serije i filmove po svojim klasicima Ova autorka je kod nas uglavnom ignorisana od izdavaca Ali ko zna mozda se i to promeni jednog dana cuda su moguca
