Race, Gender, and Englishness in the Novels of Anthony TrollopeeBook - 2013
Trollope the reformer and the reformation of Trollope scholarship in relation to gender, race, and genre are the intertwined subjects of eminent Trollopian Deborah Denenholz Morse's radical rethinking of Anthony Trollope work, particularly the later novels. Morse traces the evolution of Trollope's views on the pastoral genre, modernity, primogeniture, the marriage market, British imperialism, and England's involvement in slavery and the black Atlantic slave trade, showing that Trollope was not the complacent Englishman portrayed by many scholars and historians of the Victorian period.
