This study relates Trollope to the broad Victorian culture to which he offered a distinctive, creative response. It looks particularly at the nature and quality of his political intelligence and at his grasp of processes of manipulation, personal interaction, media/press exploitation and the integration of the private and the public. It also assesses Trollope’s continuing popularity as a writer – outselling many of his more critically ‘esteemed’ contemporaries in the late 20th Century.
