Anthony Trollope is perhaps best known for the group of Barsetshire novels, a rich and enduring picture of society in a small cathedral town. He also wrote a number of Irish novels and a series about political society known as the ‘Palliser novels’.
First published in 1978, this introduction to Trollope’s life and work surveys all of his forty-seven novels, as well as his various miscellaneous works, and calls for a reassessment of his impressive achievement.
This book will be of interest to those studying Victorian literature.
