The Duke’s Children

Professor Steven Amarnick, Bob Wiseman and former Chair of the Trollope Society, Michael Williamson, discuss the restored version of The Duke’s Children which was published by Oxford World’s Classics on 22nd October 2020.

The publication in paperback of The Duke’s Children marks a milestone in a project that has taken over decade to bring to fruition. Professor Amarnick painstakingly reviewed Trollope’s original manuscript of the novel, restoring 65,000 words that Trollope had been made to cut for its original publication in All The Year Round, Oct. 4, 1879-July 24, 1880.
