Explores the many ways in which Anthony Trollope is being read in the twenty-first century

Since the turn of the century, the Victorian novelist Anthony Trollope has become a central figure in the critical understanding of Victorian literature. By bringing together leading Victorianists with a wide range of interests, this innovative collection of essays involves the reader in new approaches to Trollope's work. The contributors to this volume highlight dimensions that have hitherto received only scant attention and in doing so they aim to draw on the aesthetic capabilities of Trollope's twenty-first-century readers. Instead of reading Trollope's novels as manifestations of social theory, they aim to foster an engagement with a far more broadly theorised literary culture.

Key Features:
  • The most innovative collection of original essays on Anthony Trollope to date
  • Enables the reader to see the direction of Trollope studies and Victorian studies in the twenty-first century
  • Situates Trollope's work in newly emerging critical contexts, such as media networks and economics
  • Makes use of pioneering developments in stylistics, ethics, epistemology, and reception history
