A publication of 1865, Hunting Sketches by Anthony Trollope is a collection of essays discussing fox-hunting. The essays mostly comment on the motives behind hunting and the pleasures that arise form it. He further discusses the varying styles of hunting and which ones, according to him, are more successful. He further reflects on the psychology of a society in which, at times, people are forced to indulge in recreations that they otherwise do not enjoy.

Anthony Trollope (1815-1882) was one of the most successful, prolific and respected English novelists of the Victorian era. He wrote penetrating novels on political, social, and gender issues and conflicts of his day. In 1867 Trollope left his position in the British Post Office to run for Parliament as a Liberal candidate in 1868. After he lost, he concentrated entirely on his literary career. While continuing to produce novels rapidly, he also edited the St Paul's Magazine, which published several of his novels in serial form. His first major success came with The Warden (1855) - the first of six novels set in the fictional county of Barsetshire. The comic masterpiece Barchester Towers (1857) has probably become the best-known of these. Trollope's popularity and critical success diminished in his later years, but he continued to write prolifically, and some of his later novels have acquired a good reputation. In particular, critics generally acknowledge the sweeping satire The Way We Live Now (1875) as his masterpiece. In all, Trollope wrote forty-seven novels, as well as dozens of short stories and a few books on travel. 

This quick read by Anthony Trollope paints an quaint and humorous picture of fox hunting in rural Victorian England. It's a relatively short look at the cast of characters in a traditional fox hunt.

    Scrittore inglese. Autore di quarantasette romanzi, fra i grandi della letteratura inglese dell'Ottocento è forse il meno conosciuto in Italia, nonostante lo straordinario successo tra i lettori di lingua inglese e la fortuna più recente tra i critici. Impiegato delle poste in Irlanda, scrisse nei momenti liberi romanzi caratterizzati un misurato verismo e da una sottile vena umoristica.In Italia è pubblicato soprattutto da Sellerio. Fra i titoli editi dalla casa palermitana, ricordiamo Orley Farm, Lady Anna, Un'autobiografia, La vita oggi, Il Primo Ministro e tutti i romanzi del cosiddetto «ciclo del Barsetshire»: L'amministratore, Le torri di Barchester, Il Dottor Thorne, La Canonica di Framley e Le ultime cronache del Barset.
