The Struggles of Brown, Jones, and RobinsonLarge Print - 2000
The Struggles of Brown, Jones and Robinson is Trollope's satirical attack on abuses in advertising. As told by "One of the Firm", it is the tale of a foolhardy junior partner of an ill-fated haberdashery store. Formerly a bill-sticker, Robinson wishes to spend the firm's entire capital on advertising, to "broadcast through the metropolis on walls, omnibuses, railway stations, little books, pavement chalkings, illuminated notices, porters' backs, gilded cars, and men in armour". This amusing comedy bears the hallmarks of Trollope's better-known novels: clever dialogue, riveting moments of drama, and comic suspense.
