Not only that, but Trollope (and this is the real astonishment) is just a delightful novelist who generally avoids Dickensian sentimentalism and never fails to point out the context for any important step by any character. Psychologists and wannabe's should put this on their required reading lists. The rest of us can learn (or be reminded of) plenty about other people and ourselves.
Trollope delves into the conflicts of romance and power, lust and wealth, the need to take time to savor life and the need to move quickly for fame and money. You may think you are going to own this series; but in the end, it will own you for a long time.
