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.

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

„It would seem that the full meaning of the word marriage can never be known by those who, at their first outspring into life, are surrounded by all that money can give.“

—  Anthony Trollope
Context: It would seem that the full meaning of the word marriage can never be known by those who, at their first outspring into life, are surrounded by all that money can give. It requires the single sitting-room, the single fire, the necessary little efforts of self-devotion, the inward declaration that some struggle shall be made for that other one. The Bertrams (1859), Ch. 30

„There are things done which are as holy as the heavens, — which are clear before God as the light of the sun, which leave no stain on the conscience, and which yet the malignity of man can invest with the very blackness of hell!“

—  Anthony Trollope
Context: But how shall I excuse it? There are things done which are as holy as the heavens, — which are clear before God as the light of the sun, which leave no stain on the conscience, and which yet the malignity of man can invest with the very blackness of hell! Ch. 42

„There is no such mischievous nonsense in all the world as equality.“
