Nina Balatka (1867) and Linda Tressel (1868) are at once unusual and typical among Trollope's fiction. Unusual because they were both published anonymously and set abroad, Prague and Nuremberg respectively, they are typical in their sympathetic treatment of young heroines. Each studies religious rigidity: Catholic Nina loves a Jew, while Linda's Calvinist aunt tries to save her soul by marrying her to a much older man. These fascinating studies of women on the verge of breakdown, in which characters are at their most sincere when they are at their least attractive, reveal Trollope's powers as a psychological novelist. This book is intended for students and teachers of Victorian fiction; women's studies courses; general.
