The Duke's Children

New Edition

Anthony Trollope
Edited by Katherine Mullin and Francis O'Gorman

Oxford World's Classics

  • The Duke's Children is a touching story of love, family relationships. loyalty, principles, horse-racing, flirtation, and debt, as the old Duke struggles to come to terms with the loss of his wife and the stubbornness of his children. The concluding novel in the Palliser series, it stands alone as well as being the perfect culmination to Trollope's superb sequence.
  • The wide-ranging introduction explores the implicit politics of the novel about the nature of conservatism and liberalism in all their facets; the 'woman question'; autobiographical echoes; gambling; and the novel's interest in modernity and the United States.
  • Invaluable appendix outlines the political context of the Palliser novels and establishes the internal chronology of the series and the relationship between fictional and actual political events, providing a unique understanding of the series as a linked narrative.
  • Biographical Preface provides a compact biography of Anthony Trollope, and a Chronology charts his life against the major historical events of the period.
  • Explanatory Notes detail the attentiveness of the novel to its own age, and pay attention to the original serial version and the longer manuscript version.
