Faux leather reprint. 1982 Hard Cover. 533, [1] pp. 8vo. Crimson faux leather, gilt titles & decorations, all edges gilt. Illustrations by Edward Ardizzone. Anthony Trollope was well aware that the seemingly parochial power struggles that determine the action of Barchester Towers -- struggles whose comic possibilities he exploits to hilarious effect -- actually went to the heart of mid-Victorian English society, and had, in other times and other guises, led to civil war and constitutional upheaval. Thai awareness heightens the comedy and intensifies the drama in this magnificent novel and it transforms the story of a fight for ascendency among the clergy and dependants of a great English cathedral into something fundamental and universal. This is the second novel in Trollope's Barsetshire series, following his acclaimed novel The Warden.
