A sensitive and moving portrait of life and manners in an English country village during the 1830s, "Cranford" recounts the events and activities in the lives of a group of spinsters and widows who struggle in genteel poverty to maintain their standards of propriety, decency, and kindness.
  1. 101
    Stolz und Vorurteil von Jane Austen (chrisharpe)
    chrisharpe: Both novels offer a similar sort of wry look at the foibles of the English classes in the 18th / 19th centuries. Both are so carefully observed and deliciously written that they remain classics.
  2. 30
    The Illustrated Lark Rise to Candleford von Flora Thompson (Staramber)
    Staramber: In Over To Candleford Laura reads Cranford to her Uncle. Although separated by time they both contain everyday descriptions of provincial British life by – largely – passive narrators.
  3. 41
    The Country of the Pointed Firs and Other Stories von Sarah Orne Jewett (InfoQuest)
    InfoQuest: In both Gaskell and Jewett's novels, a young woman (the first-person narrator) comes to visit a rural community in a series of related vignettes. Jewett's is the more poetic, and Gaskell's is the more humorous, but both are lovely little books which center on the experiences and relationships of women in the 19th century.… (mehr)

    The Folded Earth von Anuradha Roy (noveltea)
    noveltea: Two endearing small towns, one British (with links to India), one Indian (with links to Britain).
  5. 10
    Suite française von Irène Némirovsky (chrisharpe)
    chrisharpe: In many ways a similar, acutely observed portrait of village life, with an especially keen eye on the upper and middle classes.
  6. 00
    Der Sommer ohne Männer von Siri Hustvedt (thorold)
    thorold: Two novels 160 years apart that explore the roles of women by creating a view of the world in which men are peripheral or irrelevant.
  7. 00
    Gentleman Jack: The Complete First Season [DVD] von Sally Wainwright (potenza)
    potenza: Any fan of Gaskell might appreciate this real-life feminist contemporary.
  8. 00
    Mrs. Ames von E. F. Benson (bell7)
    bell7: This story is similarly concerned with events in a small English town, though the characters' class and life situations are much different.

A classic book by Gaskill of a small town - almost a village - in rural England, dominated by women of a certain age. Whilst not rich, they are not necessarily poor and they have developed their own ways of presenting themselves to the local community.

The book is narrated by Mary Smith, not a native of Cranford, who makes occasional visits to Miss Mattie (and her older sister Miss Deborah, whilst she is alive), a spinster in her 50s. There is no plot, per se, rather each chapter describing an occurrence in the village and the resident's reaction to it, which can often be wildly out of proportion to what actually happened.

This is a light and amusing book, which disappointed me slightly when I realised I'd been daft enough to think this was a (Lark Rise to) Candleford book (whoops!), even though I could see a similarity in some of the characters. Looking at some other reviews of this book, it seems I am not mistaken for confusing the two (Cranford/Candleford; both set in the middle of the 19th Century; etc).

This is a lovely collection of quaint short stories all set in a fictional country town made up of predominantly older single women. ( )

This is a charming book about life in a 19th-century English village. It's more of a collection of short stories with common characters and some continuing plotlines than it is a novel. For those who are reading from the 1001 Books to Read Before You Die list, this is a relatively quick and easy read compared to most others on the list. ( )

Boggy. A series of short stories rooted in the town of Cranford, it makes for a good miniseries (as BBC clearly proved) but slow and ponderous reading. While I did enjoy her vivid descriptions, it was hard for me to straighten out the plot-lines. ( )

This is a lovely series of vignettes, variously humorous and heartwarming. The book makes affectionate fun of all its characters-- you can tell how much the narrator loves them all, and she makes you love them too. A few times I was even so by their troubles I teared up a little bit, though Gaskell manages to avoid sentimentality.

Was going to give it only four stars because I had a vague feeling of it being less "substantial", but thinking about it more, that's silly. I quite enjoyed this book, and found it absorbing and well-written.

Would recommend for fans of Emma. ( )

In the first place, Cranford is in possession of the Amazons; all the holders of houses, above a certain rent, are women.

Woodley stood among fields; and there was an old-fashioned garden where roses and currant-bushes touched each other, and where the feathery asparagus formed a pretty background to the pinks and gilly-flowers; there was no drive up to the door. We got out at a little gate, and walked up a straight box-edged path.
Miss Jenkyns wore a cravat, and a little bonnet like a jockey-cap, and altogether had the appearance of a strong-minded woman; although she would have despised the modern idea of women being equal to men. Equal, indeed! she knew they were superior.
