The article comments on the similarity of the elements of the novel "Lady Anna," by Anthony Trollope with "Othello," by William Shakespeare. One comments that an English novel can be written without Shakespearian allusions, yet in "Lady Anna," they are legion. On June 30, 1871, Trollope noted that the plot, performance and language of his play are perfectly similar to that of Shakespeare's. It is also asserted that he was reading "Othello" while constructing his novel.
