One of the most successful, prolific and respected English novelists of the Victorian era, Anthony Trollope was greatly influenced by the genteel poverty of his youth. W.H. Auden said of him, “Of all novelists in any country, Trollope best understands the role of money. Compared with him even Balzac is a romantic.” Anthony Trollope’s output was prodigious; he wrote on a strict schedule turning out the Chronicles of Barsetshire and the Paliser novels with a predictability his loyal readers could count on.
Trollope was the first to say that the financial rewards of writing mattered to him; he thought a disdain of coin was false and foolish. Writers of his time admired him; George Eliot noted that she could not have embarked on so ambitious a project as Middlemarch without the precedent set by Trollope in his own novels of the fictional county of Baresetshire.
Edward Dicey worked with Trollop as a subeditor.
