Trollope: the dedicated student of human nature

Sara Henary, Assistant Professor of Political Science at Missouri State University, has written an excellent article which brings out the reasons why so many of us love Trollope while not shying away from the fact that many others do not. For example:

“Trollope gives us the cad who is not quite entirely caddish, the woman who works hard to maintain a prudent marriage without forgetting the imprudent one she had herself wanted. Nothing could be less like Dickens’s stark portraits of saints and fiends moving through a black-and-white world in which the roads to perdition and redemption, though possible to miss, are nonetheless clearly marked.”
