Meet the Author


One of the most prolific writers of the Victorian era, Anthony Trollope (1815-82) did not begin his career as a novelist until he was in his thirties. In addition to his novels, most of them multi-volume "triple-deckers," he also wrote sketches, short stories, travel books, and biographies of classical figures.
