Trollope re-appraised

Mark Anderson found this reference to Trollope in the diary of Irish poet William Allingham for 13th October 1885:

“I was now reading some Trollope’s, and felt my estimate of his powers to be higher than it used to be.”

It seems that Trollope’s reputation is destined to wax and wane.
