A perfect stocking-filler for Christmas Fascinating clergy character sketches by one of England s greatest novelists, introduced by one of our greatest spiritual writers This handsome facsimile edition of Trollope s insightful and entertaining clerical portraits, introduced by Michael Mayne and with charming illustrations by David Eccles, is a wonderful entertainment. The great Victorian novelist scored his first popular successes with The Warden and Barchester Towers. He went to write four more novels in the Barsetshire Chronicles series, which he is said to have conceived while wandering round Salisbury cathedral on a summer evening. These gentle but often pointed sketches of evangelicals and high church vicars, of bishops and parish clergy, first appeared in The Pall Mall Gazette. They still tease and resonate as well as amuse today, and their reappearance in this new edition will deepen our understanding of the work of one of the great English novelists. As Michael Mayne sums up in his Introduction, Trollope's Anglicanism is marked by Tolerance within a broad spectrum of belief and interpretation; a high regard for the individual conscience; moderation in face of extremism; [and] a recognition that truth may sometimes lie in both extremes rather than somewhere in between.
