Anthony Trollope (1815-1882) was one of the most successful,
prolific and respected English novelists of the Victorian era. He
wrote penetrating novels on political, social, and gender issues
and conflicts of his day. In 1867 Trollope left his position in the
British Post Office to run for Parliament as a Liberal candidate in
1868. After he lost, he concentrated entirely on his literary
career. While continuing to produce novels rapidly, he also edited
the St Paul's Magazine, which published several of his novels in
serial form. His first major success came with The Warden (1855) -
the first of six novels set in the fictional county of Barsetshire.
The comic masterpiece Barchester Towers (1857) has probably become
the best-known of these. Trollope's popularity and critical success
diminished in his later years, but he continued to write
prolifically, and some of his later novels have acquired a good
reputation. In particular, critics generally acknowledge the
sweeping satire The Way We Live Now (1875) as his masterpiece. In
all, Trollope wrote forty-seven novels, as well as dozens of short
stories and a few books on travel.
