listening to a librivox recording on my walks to and from work. so far so awesome!

***

while still 19th-century brit lit, and therefore made of win, this was a little melodramatic for me. north & south et al are much better. ( )

Well, that was a downer. I prefer Gaskell's other novels (North & South, Mary Barton), but appreciate what she was trying to do with this one. The main takeaway from this book is 'Mind your business. What other people do or have done is no concern to you.' ( )

This one was mostly just depressing. There is an extremely funny moment where Faith Benson realizes she likes making up stories, which was definitely my favorite bit of the whole book, though. ( )

When lovely lady stoops to folly....

With its sticky, pious religiosity that is associated with the worst of Victoriana, this is probably the weakest of Gaskell's novels, very much reminding me of Harriet Beecher Stowe's The Pearl of Orr's Island. At least this much can be said for The Pearl of Orr's Island, though, that it was the single-most significant influence on Sarah Orne Jewett by legitimizing for her the use of Maine regional dialect. There's really very little that can be said for Ruth.

Like Hester Prynne, Ruth Hilton is an unwed mother in a less-than-tolerant society (though mid-19th Century Britain does not treat her as harshly as Puritan Boston treated Hester two centuries earlier). Ruth, though, does very much resemble The Pearl of Orr's Island in the pious deaths of their eponymous heroines, though Stowe's Pearl, unlike Gaskell's Ruth, is chaste and pure.

Unlike The Scarlet Letter, Gaskell's Ruth reinforces the stereotypes of religiosity that Hawthorne condemns (though, in fairness, Gaskell does condemn social hypocrisy while at the same time reinforcing sincere religious opprobrium); and Ruth is far more accepting of her plight than Hawthorne's passive-aggressively resistant Hester. (Interestingly, Ruth was published in 1853, the year that Hawthorne took up the U.S. consulship in Liverpool, but Gaskell and Hawthorne crossed paths while never meeting.)

Overall, very disappointing. I've read Ruth in conjunction with a reading of Jenny Uglow's Elizabeth Gaskell: A Habit of Stories, but that's really its only value – a reading for the sake of "Gaskell completeness" in conjunction with reading a major current-day Gaskell biography. Charlotte Brontë was dead-on right in urging Gaskell not to kill Ruth off at the end of the novel, which reinforces all the pious Victorian stereotypes of the "reformed sinner." ( )

I appreciate that Gaskell takes a stand against how unmarried mothers were treated and I think it's this book does a good job calling out the hypocrisy of Victorian morality. I gave it three stars because, well, the writing was kind of boring. _North and South_ was more engaging. ( )

Drop, drop, slow tears!
And bathe those beauteous feet,
Which brought from heaven
The news and Prince of peace.
Cease not, wet eyes,
For mercy to entreat:
To cry for vengeance
Sin doth never cease.
In your deep floods
Drown all my faults and fears
Nor let His eye
See sin, but through my tears.

There is an assize-town in one of the eastern counties which was much distinguished by the Tudor sovereigns, and, in consequence of their favour and protection, attained a degree of importance that surprises the modern traveller.
Ruth, published in three volumes in 1853, was Elizabeth Gaskell's second full-length novel. (Introduction)
