Über den Autor

Anthony Trollope (1815-1882) was an English novelist of the Victorian era, acclaimed for his penetrating insights into the social and political issues of his time. Trollope's literary career was prolific, and he is best known for his Chronicles of Barsetshire, a series that paints a vivid picture of the clerical life in the fictional English county of Barsetshire. His novel 'The Landleaguers', though lesser-known, further attests to his prolificacy and versatility as it addresses the complexities of Irish land issues toward the end of his career. Trollope's literary style combined realism with a keen eye for detail and a wry sense of humor, distinguishing him among his peers. He richly depicted the milieu of middle-class life, exploring themes such as the conflict between personal ambition and social acceptance ('The Way We Live Now'), and the influence of money ('The Palliser novels'). Despite initial success, Anthony Trollope's work was somewhat overshadowed by contemporaries like Dickens and Thackeray but has since been revalued for its delicate social satire and acute characterizations. His autobiography, published posthumously, offers a unique perspective into the methodical approach he employed in his writing, which involved arduous daily quotas—an unusual reveal that demystified the process of his production, yet also highlighted the dedication and discipline that marked his professional life. His works have not only enjoyed continuous print but have adapted into various films and television series, reflecting the timelessness of his storytelling.
