Within a few months of composing ‘My Lady Ludlow’, therefore, Gaskell had taken the decision to associate it with Edinburgh, with a society cosmopolitan yet provincial, professional, intellectual, liberal, ethnically diverse. The special character of post-Enlightenment Scotland is notorious; Scottish education, cheap, broad and egalitarian in comparison with English, had created an educated class in Edinburgh both more intellectual and more diverse in social origin than elsewhere, where a lively and intellectual salon culture flourished. Without any apparent warrant from the stories she was compiling, Gaskell chose to associate her tales with this setting.
