The Shout-Out Sunday Web Site for today, 26 January 2014 is:
All About Anthony Trollope
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
I can’t say enough about the wonders of the writings of Anthony Trollope, so I will leave it to you to discover them for yourselves, if you desire.
Here are a few more good sites relating to this, my second favorite writer of all time (next to Charlotte Bronte, of course):
And what a list it is!
I had read one or two of Trollope’s novels, starting with The Small House at Allington, before I found this:
Autobiography of Trollope’s life.
I read that book, and so much was explained about the man whom I already admired but about whom I was in the dark still concerning his life story. This book was wonderful. I loaned it to my Paul to read and, contrary to what I thought he would do, he read it from cover to cover with great enthusiasm. He loved it too. He normally doesn’t read biographies or autobiographies – he prefers books all about England, Scotland, and specifically our beloved Yorkshire. But he did love this book, as did I. So it comes highly recommended if you want a good background before jumping in to Trollope’s abundant supply of wonderfully written books.
Have a wonderful Sunday, if you can, and if you can’t, well, find a Trollope story and jump in head first – you will be delighted by what you find there.
It’s in every one of us to be wise;
Find your heart, open up both your eyes.
We can all know every thing without ever knowing why.
It’s in every one of us, by and bye.
