An Autobiography

and Other Writings

Second Edition

Anthony Trollope
Edited by Nicholas Shrimpton

Oxford World's Classics

  • The only autobiography of a major Victorian novelist, Trollope's work is fascinating for the insight it gives into Trollope's creative process, his thoughts on fiction and fiction writers, and his daily writing life.
  • This edition includes a selection of Trollope's critical writing about the novel, supplementing his observations in An Autobiography and establishing the seriousness with which he thought about the novel's form as well as the practice of novel-writing.
  • Nicholas Shrimpton's introduction considers the ways in which Trollope shapes An Autobiography and argues for its importance as a classic of the genre.
  • Comprehensive notes and up-to-date bibliography.
  • Index.
