    Trollope's novels have made him one of the most popular of the great English authors. His Chronicles of Barsetshire and the Palliser novels vividly embody the spirit of the Victorian era. This Companion describes all of Trollope's forty-seven novels, his short stories, travel books and other works, including his famous Autobiography. It examines the background, plot, characters and tone of his works and explains numerous allusions and contemporary references to place each work in its historical context. There are illuminating essays which show how Trollope dealt with topics such as religion, London, America, money, politics, women and marriage. To facilitate the easy location of places, names and themes, there is a useful system of cross-referencing which makes this Companion a full and detailed guide.
