Trollope, Anthony (1815-1882)


Anthony Trollope was a celebrated novelist. He was a close friend of George Henry Lewes’s, and by 1860 he was introduced to George Eliot. Anthony Trollope also was employed at the Post Office in London, where, in 1860, he was able to secure a position for Lewes’s eldest son, Charles. In Anthony Trollope’s letters to others, he was more harshly critical of Eliot’s writing than he seems to have been in person. Regardless, Eliot and Trollope publicly lauded each other as two of the most influential writers of their era.
