In response to A Plug for Trollope, written by Art on July 19, 1998 at 01:04:19
] In reading the different message boards and the Library Archives I don't see any significant posts for Anthony Trollope. I suspect that most Pemberlonians would find his books, most particularly the "Barsetshire Chronicles," very interesting, absorbing, and worthy of close attention. He writes about the same social class as Jane, albeit 30 to 40 years after her time and, mutatis mutandis, many of the basic themes are quite similar to hers, without, to be sure, her shimmering perfection. Trollope wrote a massive amount of stuff, all of it very worthwhile, most of which I haven't read except for the Barchester books and a couple of others, but I wholeheartedly recommend these particular books to Jane people.
I have also recently discovered Anthony Trollope. I must say that I enjoy him a great deal and that he has satified my desires for more novels in a similar style and setting as my favorite author, Jane Austen's. I have purchased the fist two novels in the "Barsetshire Chronicles" series and am anxious to begin enjoying them. I am excited to know that he has written so many novels and will devour them as a healthy, delicious snack between my regular meals of rereading Miss Austen's wonderful works.
