Works By
Anthony Trollope was a popular and exceptionally productive Victorian novelist. Priding himself particularly on the creation of individual characters, he also captures the workings of social institutions like the Church, marriage, parliamentary politics, and the exercise of power in families. As well as his forty-seven novels he is remembered for short fiction, travel books, journalism of various kinds, and an autobiography. He initiated the practice of a series of novels, each self-contained but linked together by shared characters or settings.
