Author Info
Anthony Trollope
Trollope worked as a civil servant in the post office until he was 52, at the same time traveling extensively in Britain, the U. S., and Europe. He turned his foreign journeys into travel books and his observations on English life into 47 novels. His books deal with most of the typical themes of Victorian literature: class, money, status, youth and age, marriage and sexual mores, and the crisis in the institutions of the Church of England. Each of the novels is self-contained, but many characters, locales, and situations recur. At the age of 57, he suffered a paralytic stroke while laughing at a family read-aloud session, and died a month later.
"I had realized to myself a series of portraits, and had been able so to put them on the canvas that my readers should see that which I meant them to see."
From the Publisher
Annotation The first of Trollope's Barsetshire novels, THE WARDEN explores the ethical dilemma of the Rev. Septimus Harding, the gentle, cello-playing warden of a charitable home for elderly men. Unjustly accused of receiving money to which he is not entitled, the modest and self-doubting Harding insists on resigning, feeling that his honor has been tarnished. Meanwhile, his repentant accuser (an overzealous surgeon) marries Rev. Harding's daughter, Eleanor.
First Line The Reverend Septimus Harding was, a few years since, a beneficed clergyman residing in the cathedral town of ___; let us call it Barchester.
