Literature: Rediscovering Women Authors: Two comic novels by Angela Thirkell

In this course we will read and discuss books by an author who excelled at comic writing and whose books have mostly been overlooked in recent years. Angela Thirkell’s novels, set in Anthony Trollope’s fictional county of Barsetshire, offer a gently satirical take on social mores and pretensions in upper and middle-class society of the 1930s and 1940s. We will be focusing on two comic novels: High Rising (1933) and Northbridge Rectory (1941). Through friendly and accessible discussions of both texts, we will learn more about their stories, characters and themes, and consider the nature of their author’s distinctive comic voice.
