Description

Anthony Trollope – The Palliser Novels – 6 Vol. Set In his autobiography, Anthony Trollope called the Palliser Novels–that sprawling epic of Victorian England for which he is justly famous–“the best work of my life,” adding “I think Plantagenet Palliser stands more firmly on the ground than any other personage I have created.” But as sixteen years separated the first novel from the last, Trollope worried that readers would be unable to approach them as a whole. “Who will even know that they should be so read?” he complained. Nowhere else did Trollope bring to life in such compelling fashion the teeming world of Victorian society and politics, and nowhere else did he create more memorable and living characters than those who populate these six volumes. As a group the Palliser Novels provide us with the most extensive and telling exposé of British life during the period of its greatest prestige. Now, a new generation of readers can enjoy one of nineteenth-century literature’s greatest achievements.
