  • This edition includes the following editor's analysis: Anthony Trollope, a misunderstood genius

First published in 1881, “Dr Wortle's School” is a perceptive exploration of Victorian morality that also contains echoes of Anthony Trollope's own life and his personal affection for the vivacious Bostonian Kate Field.

“Dr Wortle's School” tells the story of Mr Peacocke, a Classical scholar that 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.
