Review Novel by Anthony Trollope, published serially in 1879-80 and in book form in 1880; it is the final volume of the PALLISER NOVELS. Plantagenet Palliser, Duke of Omnium and former prime minister of England, is now a widower. He is concerned that his three children--Lord Silverbridge, Lord Gerald, and Lady Mary--will not uphold the values of their ancient lineage. Though their politics, sense of their place in society, and choice of marital partners all cause him considerable anxiety, the novel ends on an optimistic note. --

About the Author 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 re-create 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. pdf
