9780140432039: Barchester Towers (Penguin Classics)

After the death of old Dr Grantly, a bitter struggle begins over who will succeed him as Bishop of Barchester. And when the decision is finally made to appoint the evangelical Dr Proudie, rather than the son of the old bishop, Archdeacon Grantly, resentment and suspicion threaten to cause deep divisions within the diocese. Trollope's masterly depiction of the plotting and back-stabbing that ensues lies at the heart of one of the most vivid and comic of his Barsetshire novels, peopled by such very different figures as the saintly Warden of Hiram's Hospital, Septimus Harding, the ineffectual but well-meaning new bishop and his terrifying wife, and the oily chaplain Mr Slope who has designs on Mr Harding's daughter.

Review:

What has kept Trollope in the forefront of this country's great writers is his powers of ironical observation and nowhere is that more in evidence than in Barchester Towers. ( Herts Advertiser, May '97)

What has kept Trollope in the forefront of this country's great writers is his powers of ironical observation and nowhere is that more in evidence than in Barchester Towers. ( Noel Cantillon, Hitchin Gazette)
