It is but a great shame that millions of people will only get to know “Doctor Thorne” through Julian (Downton Abbey) Fellowes’ inspired TV adaptation for Amazon Prime Video. And that is OK. As ever Julian Fellowes has been masterful and I, as ever, applaud him. Thank you Julian.

That said it appears a shame not to take this opportunity to savor Anthony Trollope’s original prose. He was quite the writer. A very deft touch and an exquisite vocabulary (as was common in those days before the distractions of TV, Facebook etc.).

His writing has been a revelation to I. I am ordering everything in sight!

Just wanted to share some of his words with YOU.
