Charlotte Yonge: Why her novels are so readable today
Chair: Michael Wheeler
The Victorian novelist Charlotte Yonge was a bestselling author in her day. A devout Anglican and a close friend of Keble, her lively novels helped popularise High Church views. She lived all her life just a few miles from Winchester in the village of Otterbourne.
Dr Clemence Schultze, co-editor of a volume of essays published to mark the bicentenary of Yonge’s birth, shares the story of this remarkable writer and explores how her work still speaks to readers today.
