Publicité

Anthony Trollope est l'un des romanciers britanniques les plus célèbres, les plus respectés et les plus prolifiques de l'époque victorienne. Parmi les écrits de Trollope, on distingue les Chroniques du Barsetshire , qui tournent autour du comté imaginaire de Barsetshire, et des romans sur des sujets politiques, sociaux et sentimentaux, et aussi sur les conflits de son époque.

Trollope a toujours été un romancier populaire. Sir Alec Guinness , le premier Ministre britannique John Major, l'économiste John Kenneth Galbraith, l'écrivain américain de romans policiers Sue Grafton et l'écrivain Harding Lemay peuvent être comptés au nombre des admirateurs de Trollope. Sa réputation littéraire décline quelque peu pendant les dernières années de sa vie, mais il regagne l'estime des critiques vers le milieu du XXe siècle.

The Bertrams (1859), Ch. 30

„Speak to me of honour, of duty, and of nobility; and tell me what they require of you.“
