Palliser Novels

by Anthony Trollope

Series Description

The Palliser novels are six novels, also known as the “Parliamentary Novels”, by Anthony Trollope. The common thread is the wealthy aristocrat and politician Plantagenet Palliser and (in all but the last book) his wife Lady Glencora. The plots involve British and Irish politics in varying degrees, specifically in and around Parliament. The Pallisers do not always play a major role; in The Eustace Diamonds they only comment on the main action. (source: Wikipedia)
