A Man’s Man

Spring 1993 | Criticism

In this biography, N. John Hall concentrates on the "facts" of Anthony Trollope's career by presenting the effects of the novelist's great creative energy and by recording the results of his multiple vocations and avocations. The Trollope who emerges from Hall's account is very much a "man's man"—sportsman, clubman, traveler, civil servant, an author doing business with his publishers.
