More Trollope for Schools

An excellent article from the daily mail quoting both ex-Prime Minister John Major and Trollope Society chairman Michael Williamson on why Trollope should feature more prominently than he does currently in our schools.

For the record it is based largely on the fact that he is more realistic in his depictions of theoral complexity of life and creates more rounded and hence more believable, more human(e) characters.

Or put another way…he’s just better.
