I really should return to read the oldies but goldies of English Literature ... The adaptation of Elizabeth Gaskell's NORTH & SOUTH is very, very good (insert fangirl moment here: It's HAWT!!!)
Yes I know, Gaskell can be a bit slow in places, especially if she tries to describe the social divide with Dickensian intensity (she was friends with Dickens) but her 1854 novel North & South always held a special place in my literary heart ever since I did a couple of seminars on Victorian novels (I MUST see the mini-series Middlemarch again).

Anyway, thanks to [livejournal.com profile] dangermousie I got hooked instantly. I already knew the 1975 adaptation with Patrick Stewart as Thornton but the new 2004 BBC adaptation is brilliant. A bit of poetic license can be found in some characterization but it can be overlooked as the 4 hour dramatic romance is tightly written and brilliantly adapted.
And the costumes ... mid 1800's ... and now I can see why so many folks love the Victorian era .. I think I might make myself one or two gowns from this era :)

Yozora no mukou ni wa mou asu ga matteiru

ano toki kimi ga ushinatta mono wa
yozora no mukou no hoshi ni natta
nurashita hoho wa itsuka kawaite
kitto habatakeru kara
