Cousin Phillis review ↠ 6 Scegliendo le parole con la cura e la pacatezza di un abile intarsiatore la Gaskell racconta con straordinaria delicatezza la. A book about rural English life in the mid 1800s first love and a coming of age storyThe story is told by Phillis second cousin Paul Manning an engineer clerk working under Mr Edward Holdsworth to extend railroad branch lines in Cheshire in northwestern England Paul seventeen admires his boss and the two become friends Edward becomes ill To recuperate Paul takes him to live in the country with Phillis family Ebenezer Holman Phillis father is both a priest and a farmer learned kind and hardworking Such a character is a pure joy to meet Phillis being his only child he is devoted to her He teaches her not only the scriptures but also Latin and literature Dante is a favorite When Edward Holdsworth comes to stay friendship is kindled Edward has traveled the world and his knowledge is tantalizing to both father and daughter Edward is no country bumpkin Phillis thoroughly dazzled falls in love Country ways versus the sparkle of the new is Gaskell s themeThe story is fine but if failed to give me much to think aboutI find it realistic in some ways but not in others On one hand Phillis and her father are closely bonded and yet he scarcely notes that his beloved daughter is tortured by Edward s departure I find this strange Paul is a terribly ingenuous seventeen year old and remains so throughout the entire taleReaders are fleetingly told whom Paul marries halfway through the book and then nothing is said By the end the character I found most engaging is Betty the maid at Phillis home She is clear spoken and down to earth She tells Phillis view spoilermiserable when she hears of Edward s marriage hide spoiler
