Transforming Anthony Trollope

Transforming Anthony Trollope

Dispossession, Victorianism and Nineteenth-Century Word and Image
Edited by Simon Grennan, Laurence Grove

This volume is a cross-disciplinary collection of essays in the fields of nineteenth-century history, adaptation, word/image and Victorianism. Featuring new writing by some of the most influential, respected and radical scholars in these fields, Transforming Anthony Trollope constitutes both a close companion to Simon Grennan's 2015 graphic novel Dispossession—an adaptation of Anthony Trollope’s 1879 novel John Caldigate—and a forward-looking, stand-alone addition to current debates on the cultural uses of history and the theorization of remediation, illustration, and narrative drawing.
