A state-of-the-field review of critical perspectives on the work of Anthony Trollope.
Carolyn Dever is Professor of English and Dean of the College of Arts and Science at Vanderbilt University, Tennessee. Lisa Niles is Assistant Professor of English at Spelman College, Georgia.
"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
