He wrote fifty novels and among all, The Last Chronicle of Barset is the finest novel that was written by Anthony Trollope. This novel is the last sequel of the Barsethire series. In this fabulous novel, Trollope poured out his own youth experience into the four stories of the novel. The world admits that this novel is a masterpiece. There are six prominent themes that can be found out in this fabulous novel, they are: love, pride, power, disgrace, obedience, and honesty. The study to reveal the theme is very much interesting because the moral value that the author put on it can also be seen. Hence, the analysis on this novel through the study of the themes of the four stories is very significant in order to find out how the six themes can be revealed.
