Matthew Arnold was born at Laleham-on-Thames on 24 December 1822 as the eldest son of Dr Thomas Arnold and his wife Mary. He was educated at Winchester College, his father's old school; Rugby, where his father was headmaster; and Oxford. In 1851 he was appointed Inspector of Schools, pursuing this taxing career to support his wife and family until his retirement in 1886. He published his first volume of verse, The Strayed Reveller, and other Poems, in 1849 followed by Empedocles on Etna, and other Poems (1852) and five further collections which appeared, with a diminishing number of new poems in each, between 1853 and 1867, after which his creative gift appeared to dwindle still further and he published little poetry. His career as a writer of prose began to take over after his election to the Professorship of Poetry at Oxford in 1857
Marion Fay : a novel by Anthony Trollope( Book )

10 editions published between 1982 and 1990 in English and Undetermined and held by 586 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The novel contrasts two love affairs, each involving an aristocrat and a commoner. Trollope vividly evokes the dull working lives, plain homes, blank streets, and limited horizons of the dwellers in Paradise Row, using them as an ironic choric commentary on the unattainable world of rank, wealth, and freedom, symbolized by life in the great country houses

The Landleaguers by Anthony Trollope( Book )

8 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Landleaguers" was the last novel Anthony Trollope wrote. Though Trollope had planned for Landleaguers to have 40 chapters, he barely made it into the 49th when he had the stroke that ended his writing and, shortly thereafter, his life. "The Landleaguers" is set in Ireland, a country which Trollope had visited. The earlier Irish woe Trollope had chronicled was the potato famine; in "The Landleaguers," it is the often bloody conflict between English protestants and Irish Catholics. Trollope loved Ireland and his novels often reflect that, but "The Landleaguers," with its realistic depiction of terrorism, seems to despair of Ireland's future. There is a subplot involving the daughter of an American supporter of the Irish campaign against the English; the daughter has come to London to further her career and there are sexual intrigues there. A landlord's son is murdered by rural terrorists, a crime that replays the real-life assassination of Lord Frederic Cavendish in Dublin in 1882, and "The Landleaguers" traces the violent disruption of civil life as tenants, organized in the Land League, plot to force their landlords to give them a better deal. But part of Trollope's imaginative response to the crisis takes the form of an intriguingly uncharacteristic sub-plot, in which a young American woman travels to London and tries to make a name for herself on the operatic stage, while her father becomes a landleaguing Member of Parliament. Trollope's son Henry wrote a brief foreword to the novel and added a two-sentence postscript announcing the fates that Trollope had planned for the novel's main characters. --
