Shout Out Sunday No. 4 – The Great Trollope

The Shout-Out Sunday Web Site for today, 26 January 2014 is:

All About Anthony Trollope

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

I can’t say enough about the wonders of the writings of Anthony Trollope, so I will leave it to you to discover them for yourselves, if you desire.

Here are a few more good sites relating to this, my second favorite writer of all time (next to Charlotte Bronte, of course):

The Literature Network – All About Trollope.

Victorian Web Dot Org: A good page with lots of links about Trollope.

Take a peek here for “…a listing of all the fiction and non-fiction books and short stories Anthony Trollope wrote arranged by the year in which he began or wrote each.”

And what a list it is!

I had read one or two of Trollope’s novels, starting with The Small House at Allington, before I found this:

Autobiography of Trollope’s life.

I read that book, and so much was explained about the man whom I already admired but about whom I was in the dark still concerning his life story. This book was wonderful. I loaned it to my Paul to read and, contrary to what I thought he would do, he read it from cover to cover with great enthusiasm. He loved it too. He normally doesn’t read biographies or autobiographies – he prefers books all about England, Scotland, and specifically our beloved Yorkshire. But he did love this book, as did I. So it comes highly recommended if you want a good background before jumping in to Trollope’s abundant supply of wonderfully written books.

Here’s a list of his books available at amazon-dot-com for you.

Have a wonderful Sunday, if you can, and if you can’t, well, find a Trollope story and jump in head first – you will be delighted by what you find there.

Here is Trollope’s autobiography on-line… start reading it right now!

Cheers,

Bex-the-Trollope-Fan

It’s in every one of us to be wise;

Find your heart, open up both your eyes.

We can all know every thing without ever knowing why.

It’s in every one of us, by and bye.

    Same here, Anna, loved Barchester… my favourite of his books are the Palliser novels… and I have to admit I did not read the books – yet – but I have the series on VHS tapes that I’ve watched probably 3 times… what a great series that is!

    Phineas Finn is my favourite Trollope character!

    Click the above link and you can read the book right there on that site, see the left-hand column for chapters.

    Bex, I see that many of Trollope’s works are available in Kindle editions at no charge. Thanks for the introduction. I look forward to reading his stories.
