    Anthony Trollope
The Way we Live Now belongs neither to the Barsetshire nor to the political series of novels for which Trollope is most widely known, but its power, scope, and the moral passion inspiring it make it in some ways his greatest. It is a forceful attack upon dishonesty of every kind, and upon false values - upon the worship of money and of success. The central character, Lady Carbury, a beautiful but unprincipled woman, exploits every means in her power to advance the interests of her son, an equally unscrupulous young man, who hopes to restore his fortunes by marrying the daughter of Augustus Melmotte, a swindling financier. Trollope was an accurate social observer with a gift for satirical characterization, and The Way we Live Now, first published serially from February, 1874, to September, 1875, gives an unrivalled picture of the London of that period when the fever of speculation was at its height.Keywords: Way We Live Now Way We Live Trollope Moral Passion Power Scope Social Observer False Values Dishonesty Satirical Financier Fortunes Characterization Exploits Augustus Young Man Speculation Novels Fever Unscrupulous   show more
