    I just read that today is the anniversary of Trollope’s death. Auspicious day to start our memorials!

    For some reason my blog link is a Google Doc link? (Sorry if you got this comment twice– I thought I had posted it before but it might be stuck somewhere in the comment void.)

    The link on this post goes to my 2009 reading list, rather than to my post on The Claverings. The link is below. (Someday I’ll get the Internet right. Just not today.)

      Mike Bevel, the “tour in retrospect” post will provide permalinks to specific posts; this post links to each blogger’s main page. I’ll make sure your permalink to your Claverings post is the one that is used in the Retrospect post.

    As someone who for obvious reasons supports longer stories, I am delighted to see Trollope getting his due here. Dickens is more shiny, but Trollope actually “got it” that women have internal lives beyond the realm of male wishes.

    I think one of the faults Dickens has as a writer is that he was never able to stop idealizing women. He’s arrested romantically by his first love, Maria Beadnell (and boy, did THAT go horribly when they met up again in later life), and then by the death of his sister-in-law. (Oh, and p.s.: Dickens spends the day that his wife Catherine is giving birth to their first child antiquing with said sister-in-law. Because he’s the model for those “#1 Dad!” mugs.)

    Trollope seems to almost entirely understand women — except for those weird pockets where he can’t seem to escape the bounds of Victorian chauvinism.
