A bit about Anthony Trollope ...

Anthony Trollope (April 24, 1815 December 6, 1882) was one of the most successful, prolific and respected English novelists of the Victorian era. Some of Trollope's best-loved works, known as the Barsetshire Chronicles, revolve around the imaginary county of Barsetshire, but he also wrote penetrating novels on political, social, and inter-gender issues and conflicts of his day.
