The Moral Compass of Barchester: A Talk by Lord Chartres

Lord Chartres will be giving a talk at the Salisbury Museum on ‘The Moral Compass of Barchester’ on Thursday 9th May, 6.30 – 8.00pm

Richard Chartres former President of the Trollope Society reflects on Anthony Trollope’s life and his generally benign view of the characters in his novels. Even the odious Mr Slope is not without admirable qualities. Trollope’s geniality has its limits however and later works notably The Way We Live Now and Mr Scarborough’s Family explore the consequences of moral indifference.
