    Paperback ¹ Deerbrook eBook ´ deerbrook ebok, Deerbrook ePUBChances are good that in many a Goodreads shelf ordered by original published date there is a gap in female authored literature from the end of Austen to the beginning of the Brontës What few I have myself in that region were all save for this found in the pages of 500 Great Books By Women which shows how conscientious the search must often be for older female authored works outside the usual monolithic surnames It becomes even disheartening when all such discovered names originate from a very small area of the very small European continent but one must start somewhere I can say at any rate that this work would be a good place to start “Sensible as she is a woman” observed Margaret “if she were a man she would be called philosophical” I am no scholar of

    Paperback ¹ Deerbrook eBook ´ deerbrook ebok, Deerbrook ePUBDeerbrook has been on a shelf in my office at home for decades I finally picked it up this winter It's 500 pages long and a bit of a snoozer at times but I found it fascinating Martineau was a reformer not so much a novelist and she has created 1838 I think? two highly intelligent young women and tracked their fates There is tons wrong with this book starting with the page long chunks of high minded stilted dialogue and including too a rather too deeply malicious woman character and some empty headed ones Nonetheless I liked it very muchkind of like Uncle Tom's Cabin in the sense that it's not really well written but has a lot to say Not that it's about as serious a m

    Paperback ¹ Deerbrook eBook ´ deerbrook ebok, Deerbrook ePUBIf you're disappointed by my rating think about how much I'm disappointed myself to give only two stars to this classic Deerbrook has been described as the gap between Jane Austen and George Eliot as one of the first Victorian novels of English domestic life as an important novel that must be read by everyone who love 19th century classics even recommended for those who love Elizabeth Gaskell novelsI'm one of those readers and I needed to read this book and I don't regret it despite my rating As a female writer in the Victorian era Harriet Martineau deserves to be read because she did leave a legacy If you're interested in the

    Paperback ¹ Deerbrook eBook ´ deerbrook ebok, Deerbrook ePUBThis published 1839 and as far as I can tell set in that time frame is exactly the sort of book I have been looking for to cast light on life and novels in the early Victorian period something occupying the time between Austen and later giants like the Brontes and Eliot Manners and customs have changed since Austen's time but certain aspects that I think of as Victorian have not really taken holdDespite some long winded passages I found this mostly fascinating I kept

    Paperback ¹ Deerbrook eBook ´ deerbrook ebok, Deerbrook ePUBSweet mother of pearl this was dull overblown plodding plotless verbosity at its worst And I say that as a lover of wordy victoriana like Collins Braddon LeFanu Ouida et al I made it through maybe 6 chapters before throwing in the towelit was hard to note specifics what with my eyes glazing over in a sheen of boredom In an effort to awaken my brain from its slumbering stupor I went back read the Scholarly Intro The editor makes some good points about the MCs which were difficult to keep straight what with the onslaught of Small Town Personages wandering in out of every freakin' scenebut I digress the tricky spot Martineau found herself in re middle class oriented fiction But while I can understand this book's place in the tree of English lit it's still boring as hell These types of Cozy Small Town dramas just don't appeal to me that applies as much to 1830s DEERBROOK as to Jan Karon novels of the 21st century Zzzz She points to Martineau as

    Paperback ¹ Deerbrook eBook ´ deerbrook ebok, Deerbrook ePUBThis was meant to be a buddy read with Buried in Print but I fell at the first hurdle and started skimming after 35 pages I haven’t made it through a Victorian triple decker in well over a decade just since 2012 I’ve failed to get through three novels by Charles Dickens whom I used to call my favorite author I’m mildly disappointed in myself but may have to accept the change in my reading tastes In my early 20s I loved chunky nineteenth century novels and got my MA in Victorian Literature but nowadays I look at one of these 500 page classics and think why wade through something so tortuously verbose over a matter of weeks when I could read three or contemporary novels that will have bearing on my life for the same word count and time?In any case Deerbrook is interesting from a cultural history point of view sitting between Austen and the Brontës or George Eliot in terms of timeline style and themes In the fictional Midlands villag

    Paperback ¹ Deerbrook eBook ´ deerbrook ebok, Deerbrook ePUBBoth the author and the book were below my radar when a friend recommended it to me as a book to read It was hard to get hold of a paper copy in a sensible edition Surrey County Libraries don't have a copy the Penguin classics edition is listed on the Penguin website as being an eBook only but via abebooks I managed to get a new but out of print? Penguin classics edition Phew I really enjoyed the writing the combination of narrative and very readable philosophical excursions The story painted an interesting picture of English rural life in the early 19th Century with a combination of external effects disease economic downturn poor harvest and those local the interpersonal relationships class morality humanity The greater emphasis of the social aspects of the novel on morality as opposed to propriety puts Deerbrook higher up on my list of 19th century novels than many others In that regard it reminds m
