“Nina Balatka” tells the story of a poor Christian maiden of Prague who must give up her love of a Jewish businessman or face the ire of her family and society. Anthony Trollope (1815-1882), a contemporary of Charles Dickens, is beloved for his subtle delineation of human character and middle class mores. He penned 47 novels, three times as many as Dickens. His best-known works include Barchester Towers, one of several in the Chronicles of Barsetshire series, He Knew He Was Right; and The Way We Live Now.
