Summary:
In a new interpretation of the fiction of Anthony Trollope, Coral Lansbury argues that Trollope's work in the Post Office, starting in 1834, had more influence on his fiction than did any literary figure or tradition.

Abstract:

In a new interpretation of the fiction of Anthony Trollope, Coral Lansbury argues that Trollope's work in the Post Office, starting in 1834, had more influence on his fiction than did any literary figure or tradition. Drawing on her original research in Post Office Records, she reveals the ways in which legal forms and legal reasoning shape both the language and the structure of Trollope's published work. Originally published in 1981. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These paperback editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.
