Author Info
Anthony Trollope
Trollope worked as a civil servant in the post office until he was 52, at the same time traveling extensively in Britain, the U. S., and Europe. He turned his foreign journeys into travel books and his observations on English life into 47 novels. His books deal with most of the typical themes of Victorian literature: class, money, status, youth and age, marriage and sexual mores, and the crisis in the institutions of the Church of England. Each of the novels is self-contained, but many characters, locales, and situations recur. At the age of 57, he suffered a paralytic stroke while laughing at a family read-aloud session, and died a month later.
From the Publisher
First Line Dr. Finn, of Killaloe, in County Clare, was as well known in those parts--the confines, that is, of the counties Clare, Limerick, Tipperary, and Galway--as was the bishop himself who lived in the same town, and was as much respected.
Annotation The second in Trollope's Palliser series, this 1868 novel introduces Phineas Finn, the charming, handsome Irish Catholic politician, and chronicles his election to Parliament, his adventures in the London social world, his romances with three different women, and his abandonment of politics and return to Ireland. The novel also marks the first appearance of some of Trollope's greatest characters: Lady Laura, who marries for money and lives to regret it; her insanely jealous husband, Robert Kennedy; the exotic Madame Max; and the hotheaded, fox-hunting Lord Chiltern.
