SinopseA fitting conclusion to the Palliser novels, one of the most remarkable achievements in British fiction, The Duke´s Children is a touching story of love, family relationships, loyalty, and principles, following the aging Duke of Omnium as he struggles to come to terms with the loss of his vivacious wife, Lady Glencora, and the willfulness of his three children. 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. The book also includes an invaluable appendix that outlines the political context of the Palliser novels and establishes the internal chronology of the series, providing a unique understanding of the six books as a linked narrative. The editors also provide explanatory notes, and the preface provides both a compact biography of Anthony Trollope and a Chronology charts his life against the major historical events of the period.
