Trollope, Anthony: The Duke's Children [Palliser 06]. v1. 17 Aug. 07

Here's the last novel of six (6) novels in the justifiably wonderful Palliser series of novels by Anthony Trollope. (For general information on the series, please see the first upload.)

Here's one opinion about this title:

"As always, it is Trollope's great gift of characterization which makes THE DUKE'S CHILDREN an outstanding novel. From the outwardly firm but inwardly doubting Duke to the very sincere but frequently erring Silverbridge to the tragic Lady Mabel Grex, who has the young heir in her grasp only to let him slip away, these are well-rounded figures with whom the reader lives intimately and comes to understand thoroughly. With the perfectly depicted ambience of upper-class Victoriana as the setting, this novel is an absorbing work of genius."

It is Trollope's genius for creating characters whom we care about - people who "live" and "breath" on the page, and who make us want to learn more about them - that keep many fans of Trollope coming back to him.

I hope you find the entire series enjoyable. (Thanks for indulging my tastes!)
