As young adult, Trollope endured seven years of poverty in the General Post Office in London before accepting a better - paying position as postal surveyor in Banagher, Ireland in 1841. The years in Ireland formed the basis of his second career delineating clerical life in small cathedral towns.
Rising from humble background and giving up education early in life, Trollope became famous for two epic novels Barchester and Palliser series. He travelled through the world and wrote 60 books. He was one of the founders of St. Paul’s Magazine.
