#MargaretMonday 🌻

Post by PenelopePitstop »

Always thought John gave off mixed messages to Margaret in that scene in the mill yard; she is obviously interested in finding out more about the mill. He answers her questions and then he informs her he's busy and appears to abruptly walk off. Maybe if he had lingered a bit longer to talk to Margaret she would like him better??

Mom was looking at him. Or giving Margaret the stink eye. And he was pressured. That was always the vibe I got.

the adaptation is trying to compress the essence of a few conversations from the novel that happen in the parlour at Crampton into a more visual scene.

At least he does not start talking about Cromwell.

One of my peeves - which this scene has reminded me of - is that, towards the end of the novel, when Thornton is becoming more understanding of the workers - partly through the medium of his relationship to Higgins - he persists in calling them men (a step up from hands) - and once or twice workpeople - but he does not ever acknowledge that some of his workers are women. I know Gaskell may have felt conflicted about this - women out working in the mills - but there is earlier acknowledgment - where the Hales cannot find a maid cos women prefer working in the mills, and the mill girls admiring Margaret in the street, when she first gets to Milton.

Beautiful pictures, all!

I need to watch some parts of it again to get me going with my story, which has just got to the Great Exhibition scene. I never mind rewatching that.... "I'm not sure I'd know how to dabble." :D :loveeyes

Merry, if this means you are writing a new story, then that is very exciting news! 🥰

So it's Tuesday now, but I finally found the picture I wanted to share yesterday. I don't know why but I'm drawn to this image over and over. I used this as the base to make a wallpaper aaaaages ago. (Which is why it took so long to dig it up. I had to find my external hard drive and sift through a bunch of old screencaps, etc.)

This is a beautiful picture - love the dark and light contrasts.
