Online Conversazione ~ On the Strength of Beef and Ale
American novelist Nathaniel Hawthorne once famously commented that the novels of Anthony Trollope were written on “the strength of beef and through the inspiration of ale”. Whatever his inspiration, there’s no doubt that his novels contain much wonderful detail about food. Trollope uses food, dinner rituals and attitudes to food to depict his characters, their social status and pretensions, and their domestic relationships.
Susannah Fullerton, OAM FRSN, President of the Jane Austen Society of Australia and member of the Trollope Society, will give an illustrated talk examining food and drink in Trollope’s fiction.
