在“脱俗”的克兰福德,形形色色的人们是如何生活的呢?快进来看看有什么惊喜!

In Cranford nobody is very rich, but you must not talk about being poor! Indeed not! That would be a very vulgar thing to do. And in Cranford it is important not to be vulgar. At the Honourable Mrs Jamieson's evening parties there is only thin bread-and-butter (expensive food would be vulgar), and Miss Deborah Jenkyns is extermely cross when Miss Jessie Brown talks openly about her shopkeeper uncle. An uncle in trade! What horror! The rules of society were different 150 years ago, but people stay the same. The ladies of Cranford are just like people in any age. They can be sad, happy, proud, brave, angry, jealous—and very kind. When dear, gentle Miss Matty is in trouble, everybody wants to help her. And though there are many sadnesses in Miss Matty's life, there is also a very happy surprise waiting for her...

《克兰福德》是盖斯凯尔夫人的第二部小说。作者以其细腻而独特的风格,别具匠心地为我们描绘出一个清奇古貌的世界——克兰福德,成为十九世纪初叶英国一般偏僻、闭塞、守旧、落后的乡村小镇的典型。可爱温柔的马蒂小姐遇到困难时,大家都想帮她。虽然马蒂小姐在生活中遇到很多不幸,但也有一个惊喜在等待着她……作者通过自己敏锐的观察,记录了将木未木的英格兰封建女性末裔的形象;艺术地再现了当时小镇的风俗人情和道德风尚。

A portrait of the residents of an English country town in the mid nineteenth century, Cranford relates the adventures of Miss Matty and Miss Deborah, two middle-aged spinster sisters striving to live with dignity in reduced circumstances. Through a series of vignettes, Elizabeth Gaskell portrays a community governed by old-fashioned habits and dominated by friendships between women. Her wry account of rural life is undercut, however, by tragedy in its depiction of such troubling events. Written with acute observation, Cranford is by turns affectionate, moving and darkly satirical.

伊丽莎白·盖斯凯尔(1810-1865)原名伊丽莎白•克莱格亨•斯蒂文森,是世纪英国著名女作家,给后世留下了《玛丽•巴顿》(1848)、《露丝》(1853)、《克兰福德》(1853)、《南方与北方》(1855)、《西尔维亚的恋人》(1863)、《菲利表妹》(1864)、《妻子和女儿》(1866)六部长篇小说以及大量的短篇小说、书信和杂文。

Elizabeth Gaskell was one of the greatest writers of the Victorian era. Gaskell's novels were known for their vivid depiction of Victorian society and many of them have been adapted into critically acclaimed films and television series.

首先要说的是,克兰福德是由女士们控制着的。她们租住最好的房子,如果一对夫妇来镇上生活,那个男人不久就会从人们的视野中消失。他要么是因为成了克兰福德晚会上唯一的男人而被吓跑,要么就是整个星期都待在20英里外的徳莱姆伯尔忙自己的事,那里有火车想通。

The first thing to say is that Cranford is held by the ladies. They rent all the best houses. If a married couple comes to live in the town, the gentleman soon disappears from sight. He is either frightened away by being the only man at the Cranford evening parties or he is at his buisiness all week in Drumble, twenty miles away by train.
