Phineas Finn is a charming and energetic, yet penniless, Irishman, newly elected to the British parliament. In London he is introduced to the highest social circles and swiftly climbs the rungs of government, greatly aided by his success with influential women - even though his lack of fortune seems to stand in the way of making the good marriage he longs for. But when the young MP faces a dilemma that could make or break his dazzling career, will his principles remain intact in the face of temptation, political opportunity and a little human weakness? In Phineas Finn (1869), Trollope used all his shrewd powers of observation to create a wonderfully panoramic view of nineteenth-century English politics and people, which established his Palliser series as English literature's greatest achievement in political fiction. Phineas Finn is the second novel of Trollope's Palliser series. In his introduction, John Sutherland discusses its place within the series, the character of Phineas and Trollope's depiction of women, marriage and public life. This edition also includes a bibliography, appendices and notes.
Mrs Proudie, the warlike wife of the new Bishop of Barchester, brings the Reverend Slope into the Bishop's Palace to help dominate her husband and rule the local clergy. But Slope is a snake in the grass, determined to find a rich wife, to win advancement for himself, even to fight Mrs Proudie if necessary. Their battle becomes a furious dance, involving rich, pretty Widow Bold, angry Archdeacon Grantly, man-eating Signora Neroni, gentle Mr Harding, confused Parson Quiverful and his fourteen noisy children. This classic comic story is Trollope's most famous novel.

Short Stories from the Nineteenth Century is a wonderful collection of classic stories specially selected and introduced by David Stuart Davies, featuring tales by Charles Dickens, Arthur Conan Doyle, R.L. Stevenson, Bram Stoker, Anthony Trollope and many others.
The tough-mindedness of the social satire in "The Way We Live Now" and its air of palpable integrity give this novel a special place in Anthony Trollope's literary career. Trollope paints a picture as panoramic as his title promises, of the life of 1870s London, the loves of those drawn to and through the city, and the career of Augustus Melmotte, the Great Financier, who crosses it like a blazing comet. Melmotte is one of the Victorian novel's greatest and strangest creations, and "The Way We Live Now" is an achievement undimmed by the passage of time. Trollope's "Now" might, in the twenty-first century, look like some distant disenchanted 'Then', but this is still the yesterday which we must understand in order to make proper sense of our today.
