Anthony Trollope (1815-1882) was a popular Victorian author and novelist. The son of a lawyer who was landed gentry, Trollope became interested in the doings of the higher English social classes as a young man. Despite its relatively high social background, the family fell into poverty after the father's farming ventures failed. The Trollope family eventually fled to Belgium to escape arrest for unpaid debts. After serving a tutor on the continent, Trollope was offered a clerkship with the General Post Office in Ireland. The position offered a reasonable income which allowed him to pursue writing.
