    1. The Manchester Marriage ist eine der Kurzgeschichten aus "A House to Let" Elizabeth Cleghorn Gaskell - THE MANCHESTER MARRIAGE – Erzählt die Geschichte von Alice Openshaw, die zunächst ihren Cousin, einen Seemann, heiratet, der dann verschollen geht. Nach einigen Jahren heiratet sie einen gutsituierten Handlungsreisenden und beginnt ein neues Leben, als ihr totgeglaubter Ehemann wieder auftaucht.Dieses Motiv des verschollenen Ehemanns, der an Seemann arbeitet, kommt noch einmal in Sylvia's L [...]

    2. La trama di questa short story era già vista/letta/sentitaAnche se magari è stato questo racconto ad ispirare gli altri, e non viceversa, come è sembrato a me Fatto sta che mi sembrava di rivedere un film, una commedia, mi sembra con Totò e Peppino (che, peraltro, non è l'unico esempio di questa trama per esempio c'è il mio adorato "Il Fu Mattia Pascal"), con la differenza che la Gaskell è piuttosto tragica con i suoi finali.Ed anche la storia della spilla era uguale uguale a quella della [...]

    3. A collection of short stories of which I read all except two. I like that the stories are short and still full of plot and surprises. However, Ms. Gaskell isn't too great on wrapping stories up. Especially these short ones. She'll take pages narrating some important event and then wrap up chapters worth of information in 2 sentences at the end.

    4. This "book" is actually one chapter of a book called "A House to Let" which was cowritten by a number of authors including Charles Dickens. This chapter involves the story of a family who move from Manchester to London and includes a secret. The story fits well into the overall book and is also an engaging story all by itself.

    5. This is actually just one chapter in a short collaborative work called "A House to Let." I took too long to listen to this, so by the time I had finished it, I couldn't really remember the beginning and had to go back and listen to the first part.

    6. Not Gaskell's best work, but interesting enough. This is my first Gaskell short story. I'll need to read more to make a fair pronouncement, but at this point I'd say her work has more power in novel form than in short story.

    7. I'm not a fan of the short story but love Gaskell so gave this a try on the train home. It was ok but short stories are singularly unsatisfying - they tease without fulfilling on their promise!

    8. A quiet story of a good marriage. I have to say the "twist" was easily seen from the beginning, I enjoyed how well written it was.
