The Gaskell Society: Contents
But I, who have purposely compared Elizabeth Gaskell with her most ornate contemporary, dare to prophesy that when criticism has sifted all out, she will come to her own, as a woman of genius, sweetly proportioned as a statue, yet breathing; one of these writers we call by that vain word--so vain, so pathetic even when used of the greatest poet--'immortal.'
(Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch)
