Anthony Trollope was one of the most successful, prolific and respected novelists of the Victorian era.
His perceptive novels remain relevant today, and his reputation continues to grow with each passing year. In 2015 we celebrated the bicentenary of his birth on 24th April, 1815.

Young men are pretty much the same everywhere, I guess. They never have their wits about them. They never mean what they say, because they don't understand the use of words. They are generally half impudent and half timid ... Indeed there is no such thing as a young man, for a man is not really a man till he is middle-aged.

A pleasant letter I hold to be the pleasantest thing that this world has to give. It should be good-humoured; witty it may be, but with a gentle diluted wit. Concocted brilliancy will spoil it altogether. Not long so that it be tedious in the reading; nor brief, so that the delight suffice not to make itself felt.
