How is this book unique? Font adjustments & biography included Unabridged (100% Original content) Illustrated About The Way We Live Now by Anthony Trollope "The Way We Live Now is a satirical novel by Anthony Trollope, published in London in 1875 after first appearing in serialised form. It is one of the last significant Victorian novels to have been published in monthly parts. Comprising 100 chapters, The Way We Live Now was Trollope's longest novel, and is particularly rich in sub-plot. It was inspired by the financial scandals of the early 1870s; Trollope had just returned to England from abroad, and was appalled by the greed and dishonesty those scandals exposed. This novel was his rebuke. It dramatises how that greed and dishonesty pervaded the commercial, political, moral, and intellectual life of that era. Plot Summary: Augustus Melmotte is a financier with a mysterious past. He is rumoured to have Jewish origins, and to be connected to some failed businesses in Vienna. When he moves his business and his family to London, the city's upper crust begins buzzing with rumours about him — and a host of people ultimately find their lives changed because of him. Melmotte sets up his office in the City of London and purchases a fine house in Grosvenor Square. He sets out to woo ...

The Way We Live Now

This edition of Anthony Trollope's biting satire on the Victorian culture contains all of the original illustrations. Written as a withering response to the damage suffered to various economies in the 1870s as a number of financial scandals came out into the open, The Way We Live Now is Trollope's attack upon a society he considered to be ostensibly moral, but in reality dishonest and greedy. The protagonist is Augustus Melmotte, whose past is ambiguous - however his manner and guile assist in his travelling among high society. Hosting a lavish party in which the major investors of London are invited, Melmotte stirs up a good deal of local gossip and establishes a reputation for himself in spite of rumours about his past failed business ventures. It is soon revealed that Melmotte is running an elaborate 'pump and dump' scheme involving the construction of railways from the USA into Mexico. By wooing and impressing investors with his apparent success and considerable largesse, Melmotte hopes to attract substantial investment in a company which in fact does not intend to build any such rail line. Meanwhile we find subplots between members of society arranging marriages in order to strengthen their influence and finances. Other members however are more occupied with frittering a...

Let the reader be introduced to Lady Carbury, upon whose character and doings much will depend of whatever interest these pages may have, as she sits at her writing-table in her own room in her own house in Welbeck Street. Lady Carbury spent many hours at her desk, and wrote many letters,—wrote also very much beside letters. She spoke of herself in these days as a woman devoted to Literature, always spelling the word with a big L. Something of the nature of her devotion may be learned by the perusal of three letters which on this morning she had written with a quickly running hand. Lady Carbury was rapid in everything, and in nothing more rapid than in the writing of letters. Here is Letter No. 1;—
