Harriet Martineau Ù Deerbrook READER

O most eligible men in Deerbrook Deerbrook is a delightful evolcation of daily life in a small English village in the early nineteenth century and a masterly and moving exposition of the plight of the Victorian woma in love When this her only novel was first published in 1839 Martineau was accorded eual literary status to Madame de Staël This 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 thinking as I was reading how it was like a dark version of Austen novels We have the marriage plot romantic misunderstanding village gossip two sisters who are smarter and sensitive than those around them But also a lot of stuff that Austen either cuts down to size by making comic keeps subtle and off the page or never mentions at all There is a character disabled in an accident There are serious money problems feuding and slander intrigue involving engagements deathbed drama an evil Aunt NorrisMrs Elton type someone falling through the ice a home invasion a riot an epidemic This story really has a lot Also worth noticing though are what it doesn't have It doesn't have ridiculous plot twists like someone turning out to be the long lost natural child of someone or people otherwise turning out to be unexpectedly related to each other No one is rescued by an inheritance conveniently dies or turns out not be dead as presumed Its interests are psychological and sociological than sensational
