Sample text

Toward Trollope's insistence that his novels always teach a lesson, a certain scepticism has already been indicated. Certainly he says so in so many words: 'I have ever thought of myself as a preacher of sermons, and my pulpit as one which I could make both salutary and agreeable to my audience' (Autobiography, p. 126). Later: 'The novelist, if he have a conscience, must preach his sermons with the same purpose as the clergyman, and must have his own system of ethics' (p. 190). But it must always be kept in mind that Trollope is writing not so much in favour of didacticism as defensively, against the charge that novelists are 'among the tribe of those who pander to the wicked pleasures of a wicked 26 Anthony Trollope: Dream and Art world' (p.

The second world - the central world - is that of the Greshams and their friends, dependants and relations. Greshamsbury is no longer what it was any more than is the squire the focal point of authority in the village. Having begun brilliantly or at least brightly enough with a marriage to Lady Arabella De Courcy and a seat in the House of Commons, the squire foolishly abandons the prudent ways of his father and so finds himself early in reduced circumstances, the consequence of an unhappy admiration for the aristrocratic De Courcys.

Perhaps so, but the opening pages of the Autobiography set the conditions for what follows; and the meticulousness of the reckonings can be viewed as the explicit counterforce to the dreadful insecurity of Trollope's boyhood. Hugh Sykes Davies remarks that Trollope 'became a writer, not because of his need for money, but because of his talent for imaginative day-dreams. 12). And Trollope has already shown, very movingly, what is involved in the first instance in authorship: the imaginative thrust and imaginative work that precedes the actual labour of writing.
