|Title:||Domestic Dining Performances in Three of Elizabeth Gaskell's Novels|
|Other Titles:||Domestic Dining Performances|
|Abstract:||This paper examines the everyday details of the domestic dining scenes in Elizabeth Gaskell’s Mary Barton (1848), Cranford (1853), and North and South (1855). By viewing dining etiquette in terms of a dramaturgical metaphor, this paper attempts to demonstrate the cooperation, complexity, labour, and significance of the self-aware performances that structure nineteenth-century domestic dining scenes in relation to the sense of pleasure and community care that those scenes produce both for their duration and for the external ‘everyday’.|
