About the Book

''The Way We Live Now'' is a satirical book titled by Anthony Trollope, which was first serialized before being published in London in 1875. One of the last important Victorian books to be published in monthly installments is this one. With 100 chapters, the book is Trollope's longest and has a tone of interesting subplots. It was influenced by the early 1870s financial scandals; Trollope had recently returned from overseas and was horrified by the greed and dishonesty they exposed. He was chastised by this book. ''The Way We Live Now'', a satire of the London literary scene in the nineteenth century and a forceful critique of the increasing influence of speculative finance in English life, is regarded by modern critics as Trollope's greatest book. It portrayed how avarice and dishonesty permeated that era's political, social, moral, and intellectual life. In order to secure a fortune, Felix Carbury, the beloved son of the author Lady Carbury, is persuaded to propose marriage to Augustus Mel motte's daughter, a French conman and rascal. One of Trollope's greatest satirical accomplishments is his portrayal of Lady Carbury, who is impulsive, unprincipled, and unwaveringly committed to her own self-promotion.

About Author

Anthony Trollope

Anthony Trollope, an English novelist, was born in London, England, on April 24, 1815, and died on December 6, 1882. His popular success kept the nature and scope of his intellectual merit a secret until many years after his passing. His best-known and most beloved works are a series of novels set in the fictional English county of Barsetshire, but he also produced compelling novels about political life and studies with deep psychological insight. One of his greatest assets was a stable, continuous understanding of Victorian England's social systems, which he recreated in his writings with an uncommon level of solidity. Trollope was raised by a former barrister, unsuccessful gentleman farmer, and sometimes scholar. The prestigious public schools in Winchester and Harrow made him dissatisfied. Awkward teenage behavior persisted far into his 20s. He labored terribly as a subordinate clerk in the General Post Office from 1834 to 1841, but after that, he was sent as a postal surveyor to Ireland, where he started to lead a more active social life. He built a home in Clonmel, Tipperary, and wed Englishwoman Rose Heseltine in 1844. After that, he started a writing career that exudes a strong sense of great vigor and adaptability.
