The beloved ecclesiastical satire—and enduring political novel—by one of the finest English authors of the nineteenth century.

Part social commentary, part high comedy, the second installment in the Chronicles of Barsetshire is one of Anthony Trollope’s most beloved novels, and cemented the author’s reputation as the preeminent chronicler of Victorian England.
 
When the well-regarded bishop of Barchester Cathedral unexpectedly passes away, the Evangelical Bishop Proudie—rather than the deceased bishop’s son, Archdeacon Grantly—gains the episcopal see, enraging the rural English community. With the new bishop’s meddlesome wife, Mrs. Proudie, unduly influencing church politics—including an unpopular veto of Septimus Harding’s return to the role of warden of Hiram’s Hospital—the stage is set for a low-stakes war within the confines of the tiny countryside church. And for his part, the hapless Harding, who served as the protagonist for The Warden, will once again finds an enemy vying for the hand of his now-widowed daughter, Eleanor.
 
Playing on timely doctrinal schisms between adherents of the High Church and Evangelicals, Trollope delightfully lampoons the prevailing ecclesiastical politics of his day. Barchester Towers is Trollope at his best, and its unique composition—fifty-three short but deliciously decadent chapters—makes for a truly pleasurable and engaging read.

The enduring love story and satirical comedy by a master of the English novel.

A young vicar’s ambition drives him into a costly bargain in this classic tale from one of the Victorian era’s finest novelists. Set in rural England in the fictitious county of Barsetshire, the fourth novel in the Chronicles of Barsetshire brilliantly examines the intersection of romance and social class.
 
Mark Robarts is a young, ambitious vicar from the village of Framley, who is living off a benefice provided by Lady Lufton, the mother of his childhood friend, Ludovic. When Robarts decides to try his hand at advancing his wealth and social standing by seeking connections and business opportunities among the county’s upper crust, he is pressured into providing a loan to Mr. Sowerby, a member of Parliament and notorious debtor.
 
All the while, Ludovic, Lord Lufton, pursues Robarts’s sister Lucy, despite objections from Lady Lufton, who urges her son to enter into courtship with a girl better suited to his title and social class. As debt collectors look to inventory Robarts’s possessions—and as Lucy vows to avoid Lord Lufton if she cannot receive his mother’s blessing—the stage is set for a hilarious and unforgettable climax.
 
Comparing, Framley Parsonage to the other novels in the Chronicles of Barsetshire, its author noted, “There was much Church, but more love-making.” Filled with realistic detail and delightful turns of phrase, Framley Parsonage is a testament to Anthony Trollope’s unique ability to combine high-minded insight with popular appeal.
