We are very pleased and excited to announce the publication of our first monograph, Carolyn Lambert’s The Meanings of Home in Elizabeth Gaskell’s Fiction. In this beautifully written study, Carolyn Lambert explores the ways in which Elizabeth Gaskell challenges the nineteenth-century cultural construct of the home as a domestic sanctuary offering protection from the external world.
The Meanings of Home has been met with a warm critical reception. The Gaskell Journal described it as “Satisfying, comprehensive and thoroughly enjoyable to read,” while Women: A Cultural Review concluded that “Lambert does justice to her subject, offering a sympathetic and nuanced portrayal of a writer who put the conflicting aspects of her own experience to rich fictional use.”
