The Barsestshire Chronicles

Between 1855 and 1867, Anthony Trollope published the six novels that would come to make up The Barsestshire Chronicles. In these classic works of mid-Victorian literature, Trollope demonstrates an early form of world-building. Characters, narratives, and geography connect the novels to one another, as do themes and narrative style.

In this visualization, we look at how frequently themes come up in each chapter of the series. Each row has a theme, each rectangle represents a chapter, and chapters are contained within books. The darker the rectangle, the more prominent that theme is within the chapter. Scroll over a rectangle for more information.
