Über den Autor

Anthony Trollope (1815–1882) was an English novelist of the Victorian era, renowned for his richly textured narratives and acute observations of the social and political dynamics of his time. His career in the British postal service provided the backdrop for his extensive travels and exposure to varying classes of society, which greatly influenced his writing. Trollope penned 47 novels, an autobiography, and numerous short stories and articles. His works often explored themes of social strife, personal integrity, and the tension between tradition and modernity. 'Marion Fay' (1882), one of Trollope's later novels, is a poignant example of his talent for creating authentic and morally complex characters. The novel intertwines issues of class and gender, and reflects Trollope's progressive views on the institution of marriage and the societal expectations of women. Probably best known for his Chronicles of Barsetshire and Palliser series, Trollope's literary style is characterized by a realistic, sometimes satirical, portrayal of Victorian England, imbued with his signature irony and moral insight. His influence on later writers and his contribution to the English novel have made him a respected figure in literary history, earning him a place among the canon of classic English novelists.
