9780140864977: Barchester Towers (Penguin Classics)

Barchester Towers is Anthony Trollope's masterpeice and one of the great works of the 19th century. The peace of Barchester is rudely disrupted by the arrival of the new low-church bishop Dr. Proudie, along with his indomitable, shzewish wife and Mr. Slope, his oilt chaplain. Two factions split the community as many women are won over to Proudie's by Slope's persuasive powers, while the "Gantyists" remain loyal to the worldly Archdeacon, whose ambitions are dashed by this entourage. Mr. Harding, the gentle ex-warden, and his daughter Eleanor are the innocent victims caught in the middle of these aquabbling groups.

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)
