Trollope Course at Dillington House

008

 

Dillington House hosted a weekend course on Trollope (and a couple of other Victorian writers: Charles somebody or other and a William Thingamybob I believe). The course was led by Keith Chandler of Chester University.

The course compared and contrasted the approaches of Trollope with the other writers and it was noted that Trollope avoided excessive melodrama and used gentle satire and irony to point out the foibles of the mid-Victorian society in which all three writers were active.

It was an interesting and informative discussion which continued beyond the classroom and into the dining room and bar afterwards.
