Overview

The Struggles of Brown, Jones, and Robinson (1861-2) is a satirical attack on abuses in advertising. Told by "One of the firm," it is the tale of a foolhardy junior partner of an ill-fated haberdashery. Robinson, formerly a bill-sticker, wishes to spend the firm's entire capital on advertising, to "broadcast through the metropolis." His devotion to inflated and dishonest advertising is the target of this amusing comedy which bears all the hallmarks of Trollope's better known novels—clever dialogue, riveting moments of drama, and comic suspense.
