Is Dr Thorne a good father?
Contemporary reviewers of Trollope’s Dr Thorne were very favourable. During his lifetime it was reprinted more than any of his other novels and has remained one of his most popular works.
If you have not yet read the book, then do consider getting it on unabridged audio, read by Timothy West who has won major audio awards for his readings.
Thanks for your lecture series on the 4 English trailblazers, I have now caught up with all four of them. Even though I had a fair bit of prior knowledge of all except Florence Nightingale, I enjoyed your lectures very much, there were so many lovely pictures and unexpected sidelights that I was very well entertained. You really brought out how these four brilliant misfits made a difference to English culture!
I would have loved to have taken part in the actual lectures, but 5 pm on a weekday does not work for me, unfortunately, so I was pleased to be able to catch the lectures later. I look forward to further lectures in the future.
I absolutely love receiving your programs!
I just wanted to thank you for your March Trailblazers series.
Such interesting and diverse lives and the discovery of all those quirky facts gave a full picture of the personalities behind the famous personas.
As the ladies say, “It’s not easy”. What an understatement!
Thank you I thoroughly enjoyed the refresher on Florence. A great woman. Today we would no doubt diagnose her as having a mental illness. In my experience people who are so exceptional, such creative thinkers, so different from their peers as Florence was could be bi-polar. Her debilitating illnesses would have exacerbated this. So much of what I learned as a nurse came directly from her teachings.
All the stats we continually collected also came from her.
I really enjoyed this talk, Susannah. Today I used notes I took from this Trailblazers series to complete 3 hours of the 100 hours of Professional Learning I must do to be able to continue casual teaching!
I want to say how much I enjoy and appreciate, Susannah’s Trailblazer presentations.
Bravo Susannah! You revealed a phenomenal man to us. Photographic memory!
Thank you so much for a most enjoyable and informative talk last night on Dr Johnson.
Another great and inspiring talk. Can’t wait to go to the Library to see a copy.
I thoroughly enjoyed your presentation, Susannah! Brilliant as usual. You do such a marvelous job bringing your subjects to life.
Susannah is a masterful, engaging and passionate presenter who enriches our souls!
What a wonderful holiday gift—thank you, Susannah! I was hanging on every word. My introduction to GWTW was similar to yours. My next-door neighbor (a middle-aged woman) gave me her copy when I was 14 years old. Luckily, summer had just begun, so it didn’t matter that I stayed up three nights straight reading nonstop. I lived, breathed, and ate GWTW and was devastated after reading the final sentence. It’s the first time a book totally grabbed me and wouldn’t let go! I keep looking to repeat the experience, but have never fully succeeded.
What an illuminating and fascinating lecture last night. Your research is so thorough. I could not see you at the end of the lecture to thank you. Wonderful crowd, so it was impossible to move about.
Thank you so much for your wonderful talk last night. My daughters and I thoroughly enjoyed both talks and loved the photos.
As others, I have been fascinated by The Mitfords for years, made pilgrimages to Swinbrook, the Church and graves, Chatsworth of course etc … but their story is always compelling.
