Anthony Trollope was as popular a writer as Dickens in the 19th century and far more prolific, but is undervalued today. In this course, we will read and discuss Barchester Towers, his masterpiece of characterization and humor. Each week, we will also watch a segment of The Barchester Chronicles, one of the BBC’s most highly rated miniseries. Obadiah Slope, Mrs. Proudie, Archdeacon Grantley and Signora Neroni are just a few of the unforgettable characters that will delight you throughout this course. Please read the first six chapters for the first class.
