The Yale Club will present a lecture by Steven Amarnick and Robert F. Wiseman on the new complete edition of The Duke’s Children on Wednesday, January 13, 2016. Steven and Bob will reprise the popular lecture presented to The Trollope Society in London in 2014 entitled “The Lost Chronicle of Omnium” and will describe the work they carried out to painstakingly recreate the full original text of The Duke’s Children, which was edited down from a four volume length to a three volume length at the request of Trollope’s publisher.
Those of you who have read the new edition will surely appreciate this opportunity to learn more about how the unexpurgated edition evolved from manuscript to finely-bound edition.
Refreshments will be served at 6:30 pm, with the lecture to begin at 7:00 pm. Questions will be answered at the conclusion of the lecture.
Steven Armanick is a Professor of English at Kingsborough Community College, City University of New York, and Robert F. Wiseman is a member of the Board of Directors of The Trollope Society.
