Mrs Granville : [tales]

'She [a Mrs Granville, nee Wheler] had been a great friend of the Miss Porters (Jane and Anna Maria) in girlhood; and it was perhaps owing to their example that she had taken up the business of writing novels (at 10£ each) for the Minerva Press. I saw some of her tales, which were harmless enough, a weak dilution of Miss Porters in style and plot'.

Century: 1850-1899     Reader/Listener/Group: Elizabeth Cleghorn Gaskell      Print: Book
