9780140433265: Doctor Thorne (Classics)

Son of a bankrupt landowner, Frank Gresham is intent on marrying his beloved Mary Thorne, despite her illegitimacy and apparent poverty. Frank's ambitious mother and haughty aunt are set against the match, however, and push him to save the family's mortgaged estate by making a good marriage to a wealthy heiress. Only Mary's loving uncle, Dr Thorne, knows the secret of her birth and the fortune she is to inherit that will make her socially acceptable in the eyes of Frank's family - but the high-principled doctor believes she should be accepted on her own terms. A telling examination of the relationship between society, money and morality, Dr Thorne (1858) is enduringly popular for Trollope's affectionate depiction of rural English life and his deceptively simple portrayal of human nature.

Product Description:

Doctor Thorne

Review:

"Literary wizardry and hilarious digs... Entertaining twists, flirtations, jiltigs, broken hearts... Wicked!" (Val Hennessy Daily Mail)

"Doctor Thorne has the best plot - seduction, murder, families ruined by drink and debt - and, in the eponymous doctor, the most sympathetic and human of all Trollope's heroes" (Guardian)

"One would be hard put to name a more enjoyable Victorian novelist than Anthony Trollope" (Washington Post)

"Why did Freud bother? This is so much better, and truer" (Daily Telegraph)

"There is wonderful comedy in Doctor Thorne... The book is a testament to Trollope’s belief in decency as a guide to living, and I think we are made all the better for it." (Julian Fellowes Radio Times)
