9780099595885: Barchester Towers (Vintage Classics)

This 1857 sequel to The Warden wryly chronicles the struggle for control of the English diocese of Barchester. It opens with the Bishop of Barchester lying on his death bed; soon a battle begins over who will take over power, with key players including the rather incompetent Dr Proudie, his fiendishly unpleasant wife and his slippery curate, Slope. This is a wonderfully rich novel, in which men and women are too shy to tell each other of their love; misunderstandings abound; and Church of England officials are only too willing to undermine each other in the battle for power. It is a dazzlingly real portrayal of 19th-century provincial England peppered with humor, wisdom and extraordinary characters.

About the Author:

Anthony Trollope's Barsetshire series is comprised of five novels featuring interconnecting characters spanning 20 years of Trollope's writing.

Review:

"Start with Barchester Towers, generally reckoned to be the best, certainly the funniest" * Guardian * "It was in [Trollope's] fifth book, Barchester Towers, in which he blended his satirical gifts with disdain for evangelical puritanism, that he found himself" * Washington Post * "His characters are real, truthfully felt and never patronised by their creator" * Daily Mail * "[The] Barsetshire novels firmly established clerical intrigue as an art form in the mid-nineteenth century" * New York Times * "Trollope is one of our greatest comic novelists, as well as having an extraordinary talent for taking you confidentially and irresistibly into the flow of his story" * Sunday Times *
