In an astonishing literary career, which began in 1847, he published forty-seven novels, forty-two stories, five travel books, and many articles, essays and lectures.Typically Victorian, but with surprisingly modern insights, he enjoyed two successful careers and a happy domesticity- he became a clubman, a failed politician, and displayed an inexhaustible zest for travel and experience.His early life was marred by his fathers failure, but improved somewhat when his mother, Frances, achieved overnight literary success. Having joined the Post Office as a clerk in 1834, Trollope went on to revitalise postal services in England, Ireland and overseas.
