Anthony Trollope was a Victorian novelist, known for his series of novels the Chronicles of Barsetshire. On Trollope, artist W. P. Frith wrote: “It would be impossible to imagine anything less like his novels than the author of them. The books, full of gentleness, grace, and refinement; the writer of them, bluff, loud, stormy, and contentious, neither a brilliant talker nor a good speaker.”
