Everyone and Everything in Trollope: v. 1-4
- This format is currently out of stock.
For the first time all the characters in the complete works of Anthony Trollope, the most prolific writer of the Victorian age, are analyzed in one definitive reference. George Newlin does for Trollope what he did for Dickens in his award-winning Everyone in Dickens. This comprehensive four-volume set makes Trollope's complete oeuvre accessible to the general reader as well as the scholar. It deals with all the fiction - forty-seven novels and forty-six short stories - and more than two hundred nonfiction pieces, and assembles all works confirmed as by Trollope with their titles and dates of publications. More than 4,500 characters are analyzed and thousands more minor characters presented in this monumental resource. Volumes I and II cover the novels - using Trollope's own words, Newlin presents all the characters in the novels and also provides useful plot and content summaries and bibliographic data. Volume III covers the shorter fiction - short stories, sketches, and plays - and also features a cross-reference to all the fiction that provides meticulous detail on localities, historical figures, occupations, and relationships. In addition, there is a compilation of all Latin quotations with translations and sources. The complete nonfiction works are covered in Volume IV, along with a thematic concordance on nearly every aspect of life that Trollope wrote about. This exhaustive reference includes numerous illustrations, particularly those of John Everett Millais, which were printed in the Trollope first editions. Bibliographic information lists and dates all elements in the Trollope oeuvre and many works by Trollope scholars. As a starting point for research on every imaginable aspect of Trollope's work, this set is truly indispensable.
