Terry, R. C. (Editor) - Oxford Reader's Companion to Trollope - ( Item 127290 )
Published in UK by Oxford University Press, USA. 1999. First Edition, First Impression. Fine Hardback. Fine dustjacket. 658 pages. From Library Journal Through a career that spanned nearly half a century, Trollope brought to his readers a humor, a gentle yet pointed insight, and a sense of scope uncommon in the Victorian era. He also had a huge circle of friends. Editor Terry (emeritus, Univ. of Victoria, and author of several Trollope books) provides an excellent guide to Trollope's large universe. In more than 500 alphabetical listings (in eight subject areas), 36 Trollope scholars profile his private and public life, his life as a writer, his characters, locations, and associations, and his literary and social contexts. Particularly noteworthy are their discussions of--and annotated entries about--each of Trollope's 47 novels, characters, and locations. They also track the change in Trollope's critical reception from his time to our own; a growing number of critics now see Trollope not just as the genial chronicler of a lost era but as a writer who tackled the controversial issues of his time--such as sexuality, feminism, and colonialism (all of which are addressed in this volume). The work is nicely rounded out with illustrations and photographs, a chronology, a family tree, and a detailed bibliography. This well-conceived volume is recommended for large public libraries and all academic libraries. -Neal Wyatt, Chesterfield Cty. P.L., Richmond, VA Copyright 1999 Reed Business Information, Inc. From Booklist With the same comprehensive treatment provided by Oxford Reader's Companion to Dickens [RBB O 1 99], this volume covers an author whose reputation has been steadily ascending over recent years.
