9780140620214: Barchester Towers (Penguin Popular Classics)

1906. Prolific English writer of novels dealing with Victorian life. Framley Parsonage is one of the volumes of his Barsetshire series, which is for the most part set in the imaginary west country county of Barset and its chief town, Barchester. The Barset novels are where Trollope first begins to use the device of using reappearing characters in different books. This sequel to The Warden wryly chronicles the struggle for control of the English diocese of Barchester. The evangelical but not particularly competent new bishop is Dr. Proudie, who with his awful wife and oily curate, Slope, maneuver for power. The Warden and Barchester Towers are part of Trollope's Barsetshire series, in which some of the same characters recur. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.

Set in mid-Victorian England, this novel follows the fight for ascendancy among the clergy and dependants of a great English cathedral.

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)
