Anthony Trollope fue uno de los novelistas ingleses más exitosos, prolíficos y respetados de la época victoriana. Algunas de las obras más apreciadas de Trollope, conocidas en conjunto como las Crónicas de Barsetshire o Las novelas de Barchester, giran en torno al condado imaginario de Barsetshire, pero también escribió penetrantes novelas sobre temas y conflictos políticos, sociales y sexuales de su época.

Trollope ha sido siempre un novelista popular. Han sido aficionados a sus novelas sir Alec Guinness , el ex primer ministro británico sir John Major, el economista John Kenneth Galbraith, la popular escritora estadounidense de misterio Sue Grafton y el guionista y dramaturgo Harding Lemay. La reputación literaria de Trollope decayó un tanto durante sus últimos años de vida, pero a partir de mediados del siglo XX recuperó el favor de la crítica. Sir Ifor Evans señala que, durante los bombardeos sobre Inglaterra en la Segunda Guerra Mundial, las novelas de Trollope eran la lectura favorita de un gran número de personas.[1]​

—  Anthony Trollope
Context: It would seem that the full meaning of the word marriage can never be known by those who, at their first outspring into life, are surrounded by all that money can give. It requires the single sitting-room, the single fire, the necessary little efforts of self-devotion, the inward declaration that some struggle shall be made for that other one. The Bertrams (1859), Ch. 30
