And EYE FOR AN EYE is a banner example of how well this works. And Trollope is never better than in the final act of the book as we get into the head of our protagonist trying to justify his brutish behavior. At roughly 200 pages, the book is easily digested in one weekend. The story tells of a young man named Fred Neville who suddenly comes under the line of succession for an Earldom over a large estate. In particular the way he shifts blame for his OWN actions to perceived injustices carried out by the young girl's mother. A fallen man will point the blame at everyone but himself when it comes time to pay the piper, and nowhere have I seen this described better by Trollope.
