to:

* The Palliser Literature/{{Palliser}} Series



* ''Literature/{{Palliser}}'' series



* AllGirlsWantBadBoys - In the Palliser series, Lady Glencora falls in love with ne'er-do-well Burgo Fitzgerald, leading her guardians to arrange a marriage between her and stodgy Plantagenet Palliser.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: Burgo Fitzgerald in ''Can You Forgive Her?''.



* CelebrityParadox - In the Palliser series, there are characters clearly based on real people like Gladstone and Disraeli, but on at least one occasion, the real people were referenced.
* DisposableLoveInterest: The wife of the protagonist of ''Phineas Finn'' has died in childbirth by the beginning of the sequel, ''Phineas Redux''.



* GrandeDame: Glencora's aunts, the Countess of Midlothian and the Marchioness of Auld Reekie, in the Palliser novels.
* ICouldaBeenAContender: Phineas Finn, from the Palliser novels ''Phineas Finn'' and ''Phineas Redux''.



* MeaningfulName - Although he doesn't have as many as Dickens, Trollope nevertheless comes up with a few notable examples, including Plantagenet Palliser from the Palliser novels.



* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed - the Palliser novels include politicians modeled on Creator/BenjaminDisraeli and UsefulNotes/WilliamGladstone.
* ParentalMarriageVeto - Several tries, at least, including Plantagenet Palliser's nay-saying about the marriages of two of his children (''The Duke's Children''). A successful Veto resulted in the most fascinating marriage in his oeuvre, that of Palliser and Lady Glencora.
* RecursiveAdaptation - In the 1970s, the six-volume Palliser series (long) was adapted into a twenty-six episode maxiseries (also long) which in turn was novelized in a single volume (very, very short).

* VillainousCrush: Burgo Fitzgerald for Glencora M'Cluskie and George for Alice Vavasor in ''Can You Forgive Her?''.
* WrongGuyFirst:
** In ''Can You Forgive Her?'', two women go through this. Glencora loves the abominable Burgo, but ends up marrying the solid Plantagenet. Alice initially loves her cousin George, but after he goes through a wild period breaks it off and becomes engaged to bland but respectful John Gray.
** In ''The Prime Minister'', Emily Wharton marries Ferdinand Lopez, who only wants her for her money. After his death, she marries the man who truly loves her, Arthur Fletcher.

* {{Barsetshire}} - the TropeNamer



* DoorStopper: The best-known novels all come out at seven, eight, or nine hundred pages, although ''The Warden'' is an exception.
** In ''On Writing'', Creator/StephenKing refers to ''Can You Forgive Her?'' as ''Can You Finish It?''
** Trollope may have been a victim of his own success here. ''An Eye for An Eye,'' ''Lady Anna'' and some other shorter works of his were masterpieces, but he became known as a good Doorstopper writer which may have hindered their longevity.

* AmbiguouslyJewish - Melmotte, from ''The Way We Live Now,'' is the most notorious instance.



** In-universe, Lady Carbury from ''The Way We Live Now'' is a mediocre writer and knows it, so she flirts with the journalists to get good reviews.



* {{Ponzi}}: Melmotte in ''The Way We Live Now''.



* StereotypeFlip - Trollope's Jewish characters tend to be anti-Semitic stereotypes, but Mr. Brehgert in ''The Way We Live Now'' turns out to be one of the novel's most genuinely decent and honorable man.



* WeddingsForEveryone - Especially in ''The Way We Live Now'', which has six marriages in the last fifty-odd pages.
