Anthony Trollope (April 24, 1815 – December 6, 1882) was one of the most successful and prolific novelists of the Victorian era. Among his best-known works is a series of novels collectively known as the Chronicles of Barsetshire, which revolves around the imaginary county of Barsetshire.

Trollope wrote in his spare time and while traveling for his postal service job.  His finished his first novel, The Macdermots of Ballycloran, in 1845.

The Anthony Trollope Collection

 

I just found this at Amazon and I’m pretty excited about it.  The Anthony Trollope Collection by the BBC is a 6-DVD set.   The set contains  The Barchester Chronicles (an adaptation of the first two Barchester novels, The Warden and Barchester Towers), He Knew He Was Right  and  The Way We Live Now.  I only wish I already had ordered this.  It would be perfect for a lazy, Sunday afternoon.
