Anthony Trollope: His Life and Works

Anthony Trollope was a prolific writer, and wrote novels, short stories, biography and travel. He is an addictive novelist as he takes the reader into his world of politics or church, and few male novelists have shown Trollope’s understanding of women. He is also brilliant when writing about the influence of money.

Trollope’s life was not always an easy one – in fact his childhood was probably worse than Dickens’s. He had a successful career in the Post Office and was the inventor of the pillar post box.

Susannah Fullerton’s fascinating talk looks at the life of this amazing man, and at the Trollopian world that he created.
