Week 9 Questions

A clip from the 2004 BBC adaptation of North and South, which provides a useful visualisation of inside the factory.

Questions to prepare for week 9 seminars on Gaskell's North and South:

  • Think about the spatial politics of England in the novel: what meanings are attached to "North" and "South"? What is the significance and effect of this as a framework for the novel's central issues?
  • Class relations: how are cross-class relations depicted, and why are these important to the narration of Industrial dispute? How are both sides of the dispute depicted, and where does the novel's sympathy lie?
  • What gender issues does the text raise? How do gender and class intersect?
  • What connections does the novel make between regional and international affairs?
