'Kafir Land' (article). A recent trip to South Africa proved illuminating. This century's five Kafir wars have been costly in every way. European settlers' farms have been destroyed, and some killed (never women or children). The public needs to understand that the natives feel invaded, devoured by Europeans. Withdrawal now, however, would produce more inter-tribal wars. Civilization is good; the Kafirs begin to see British law is more safe, just, and pleasant than Kafir law. Fortnightly Review ( 1 February 1878), 191-206. AKL

Kanturk Hotel, low-class drinking establishment in the Irish city of Cork, owned by Mr O'Dwyer and tended by his daughter Fanny, which provides temporary headquarters for the Mollets while they blackmail Sir Thomas Fitzgerald. CR MRS

Kantwise, Mr, commercial traveller selling metallic furniture for the Patent Steel Furniture Company. 'He looked as though a skin rather too small for the purpose had been drawn over his head and face so that his forehead and cheeks and chin were bright and shiny', and his nose 'seemed to have been compressed almost into nothing by that skin-squeezing operation' (VI). He sells a broken set of furniture to stingy Mrs Mason. OF MT

Kate, servant girl at the Dunmore Inn who assists Mrs Kelly in running the establishment. KOK MRS

Katty, kitchen-girl at Ballycloran, one of two barefoot domestic helps who provides company for Feemy Macdermot. MB MRS

Keegan, Hyacinth, the 'oily attorney of Carrick' (II), whose foot is hacked off by three Ribbonmen in vengeance for his persecution of the Macdermots. Son-in-law of builder Joe Flannelly, and agent for absentee landlords, he is driven by ambition to become master of Ballycloran. Having turned Protestant to align himself with the English, the ruling powers in Ireland, he makes himself so hated and feared by the local Irish tenantry that he is finally driven out of Drumsna. MB MRS

Keegan, Sally, daughter of builder Joe Flannelly, who had offered her, together with the building of Ballycloran as dowry, to Larry Macdermot. Rejected by him on account of her lowly bloodline, she is subsequently married off to the attorney Hyacinth Keegan. Though she remains with him when he loses all and is forced to leave, their relationship is soured by battles over his attentions to other ladies. MB MRS

Kellogg, Clara Louise (Mme Strakosch) ( 1842-1916), celebrated opera singer who made her New York debut in Rigoletto in 1861 and first appeared in London in 1867. Meeting Trollope in Boston ( 1861) she found him 'filled with conceit', and wrote: 'Mr Trollope knew nothing of America, and did not seem to want to know anything. Certainly, English people when they are not thoroughbred can be very common! Trollope was full of himself and wrote only for what he could get out of it. I never, before or since, met a literary person who was so frankly "on the make". The discussion that afternoon was about the recompense of authors, and Trollope said that he had reduced his literary efforts to a working basis and wrote so many words to a page and so many pages to a chapter. He refrained from using the actual word "money"--the English shrink from the word "money"--but he managed to convey to his hearers the fact that a considerable consideration was the main incentive to his literary labour, and put the matter more specifically later, to my mother, by telling her that he always chose the words that would fill up the pages quickest' ( 1 & R80). RCT

Kelly, Jack, the 'family fool' (II) at Kelly's Court, a 'dirty, barefooted, unshorn, ragged ruffian' (II) who offers Captain Kelly, owner of property filched by Simeon Lynch, the pointed observation that 'I and the lord are both Sim's fools now' (II). KOK MRS

Kelly, Jane, youngest sister of Martin Kelly, who helps her mother and sister Meg run the
