Forthcoming book on Trollope and Ireland

We are delighted to learn that John McCourt, Associate Professor of English Literature at the University of Roma Tre, is to publish the first book-length study of the Trollope’s relationship with Ireland, the country which became his second home and was the location of his first personal and professional success. It offers an in-depth exploration of Trollope’s time in Ireland as a rising Post Office official, contextualising his considerable output of Irish novels and short stories and his ongoing interest in the country, its people, and its always complicated relationship with Britain.

Entitled, Writing The Frontier: Anthony Trollope Between Britain and Ireland, it will be published by Oxford University Press in April 2015 to coincide with the Trollope bicentenary.
