Penguin Classics Dr Wortles School - new book

ISBN: 9780140434040

ID: 978014043404

Mr Peacocke, a Classical scholar, has come to Broughtonshire with his beautiful American wife to live as a schoolmaster. But when the blackmailing brother of her American first husband appears at the school gates, their dreadful secret is revealed, and the county is scandalized. In the character of Dr Wortle, the combative but warm-hearted headmaster, who takes the couple''s part in the face of general ostracism, there is an element of self-portrait. There are echoes, too, in Wortle''s gallantry to Mrs Peacocke, of Trollope''s own attachment to the vivacious Bostonian, Kate Field.With its scathing depiction of American manhood, its jousting with convention and its amiable, egotistical protagonist, Dr Wortle''s School(1879) is one of the sharpest and most engaging of Trollope''s later novels.For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world.

Dr Wortle´s School - new book

ISBN: 9780140434040

ID: 218337559

Mr. Peacocke, a classical scholar, has come to Broughtonshire with his beautiful American wife to live as a schoolmaster. Then a ´´rummy looking fellow´´ appears at the school gates to blackmail them with the assertion that Mrs. Peacocke´s first husband -- a reprobate from Louisiana -- is still alive, and the county is scandalized. In the character of Dr. Wortle, the combative but warmhearted headmaster, who takes the couple´s part in the face of general ostracism, there is an element of autobiography. There are echoes, too, in Wortle´s gallantry to Mrs. Peacocke, of Trollope´s own attachment to the vivacious Bostonian, Kate Field. With its scathing depiction of American manhood, its jousting with convention, and its amiable, egotistical protagonist, Dr. Wortle´s School is one of the sharpest and most engaging of Trollope´s later novels.

Dr Wortle's School - Paperback

ISBN: 9780140434040

ID: 9780140434040

Mr Peacocke, a Classical scholar, has come to Broughtonshire with his beautiful American wife to live as a schoolmaster. But when the blackmailing brother of her first husband - a reprobate from Louisiana - appears at the school gates, a dreadful secret is revealed and the county is scandalized. Ostracised by the community, the pair seem trapped in a hopeless situation - until the combative but warm-hearted headmaster of the school, Dr Wortle, offers his support, and Mr Peacocke embarks upon a journey to America that he hopes will lay to rest the accusations once and for all. A perceptive exploration of Victorian morality, Dr Wortle's School (1881) also contains echoes of Trollope's own life, and his personal affection for the vivacious Bostonian Kate Field.
