As its title suggests, Elizabeth Gaskel’s novel North and South depicts two different worlds experienced in England during Victorian period due to industrialization. These depictions are carried out through the protagonists in the novel, Margaret Hale and John Thornton. As Margaret is born and raised in southern England, she has very significant and different ideas and beliefs compared to Mr. Thornton, who is a factory owner in the north. Elizabeth Gaskel skilfully develops conflicts around her characters and constructs the plot to expose their prejudices, especially through Margaret. This paper focuses on exposing the novel to a conceptual comparison through the changes observed in North and South.
