About the author (1985)

ANTHONY TROLLOPE (1815-1882) grew up in London. He inherited his mother's ambition to write and was famously disciplined in the development of his craft. His first novel was published in 1847 while he was working in Ireland as a surveyor for the General Post Office. He wrote series of books set in the English countryside as well as those set in the political life, works that show great psychological penetration. One of his greatest strengths was his ability to recreate in his fiction his own vision of the social structures of Victorian England. The author of forty-seven novels, he was one of the most prolific and respected English novelists of the Victorian era.

John Sutherland is Lord Northcliffe Professor of Modern English Literature at University College London. He has
edited a number of World's Classics, including works by Anthony Trollope, Wilkie Collins, and Thackeray. He has written and edited a number of other works. He also writes a regular column for the Guardian and reviews for a number of journals as well as on the radio.
