Anthony Trollope’s 1855 novel The Warden revolves around an English cleric whose comfortable living is called into question not only by progressive voices in society but by his own conscience. While inaugurating the expansive Barsetshire series, The Warden on its own is a relatively short, intense examination of emotion, moral choice, and the social consequences of individual action. This seminar introduces Trollope’s main concerns as well as his surprisingly timely psychological prose.
Three sessions. Registration – $170
