Anthony Trollope was among the most prolific, popular, and richly diverse writers of the mid-Victorian period, with forty-seven novels and a variety of other writings to his name. Both a serial and series writer whose novels traversed Ireland, England, Australia and New Zealand, and genres from realism to science fiction, Trollope also published criticism, short fiction, travel writing and biography. The Cambridge Companion to Anthony Trollope provides a state-of-the-field review of critical perspectives on his work, with the volume's sixteen essays addressing Trollope's biography, autobiography, canonical fiction, short stories and travel writing, as well as surveying diverse topics including gender, sexuality, vulgarity, and the law.

Review quote

"Dever and Niles's collection offers consistently illuminating perspectives of Trollope as conservative or progressive, conventional or innovative, a party man or a subversive. The "colonial" essays as a group are especially wonderful."
-Deborah Denenholz Morse, NBOL 19 "There is indeed much to be said for letting readers of the volume craft these connections themselves, and in this sense Dever and Niles's collection might best be viewed as an invitation, a guide and companion, indeed, to bring us into Trollope's world, point out its highlights, gesture toward its niches and hidden ways, and let us explore them on our own." --Victorian Studies
