Trollope: Not all Beef and Ale

John McCourt, Associate Professor of English at Rome University, has written a closely argued essay in the Dublin Review of Books in which he makes a persuasive case for viewing Trollope as much as an Irish author who also write a lot of books about England as the converse.

This theme is explored in more detail and at greater length in his book: Writing the Frontier: Anthony Trollope between Britain and Ireland which is published this week by Oxford University Press. An event to mark the launch of the book is being hosted tonight at the Irish Embassy in London. You can order a copy direct at:
