Abstract
In the article three novels by E. Gaskell, "Mary Barton" (1848), "Ruth" (1853), and "Cranford" (1853), are approached as debunkingthe Victorian stereotypes about women ("the Angel in the House", "the fallen woman". "the old maid"). In her protest against these notions, Gaskell introduced a new type of a heroine.
