Charles Dickens had just completed Hard Times , his serialised account of life in a northern mill-town. The very next story published in his Household Words magazine was also set in the "smoky, dirty" north — except, this time, the injustices of working life weren't chronicled by an appalled visitor but by someone who lived in Manchester, Elizabeth Gaskell. Whether this made for a more authentic novel is moot. Undeniably, Gaskell's sympathies were with the poor: North and South 's central concept is the gradual realisation of haughty, scornful southerner Margaret Hale that there is a beauty to the "vulgarity of shop people". There's also a clever balance to North and South , a certain acknowledgment of the middle-class manufacturers who raise themselves "into the power and position of a master by [their] own exertions". Gaskell's priorities lay with storytelling.
