The English Rural Society in the Midst of Change

“Mrs. Forrester ... sat in state, pretending not to know what cakes were sent up, though she knew, and we knew, and she knew that we knew, and we knew that she knew that we knew, she had been busy all the morning making tea-bread and sponge-cakes.” - Elizabeth Gaskell, Cranford

Both comic and tragic, Cranford is a novel set in a fictional rural town of 19th-century England where time seems to stand still. Neither character wants to change and all of them are feverously trying to preserve the old customs and norms. However, a series of comings and goings disrupts the town’s balance and force the leading women in Cranford to leave their comfort zone.
