Alice Vavasour has broken off her engagement with John Grey, her faultless fiance, in order to marry her cousin George. According to the Victorian moral code, Alice must pay for her poor behaviour, but the reader forgives her, not because she has been punished and repents, but because we have a complete understanding of - and sympathy with - her motives.

Mr Peacocke, a Classical scholar, has come to Broughtonshire with his beautiful American wife to live as a schoolmaster. But when the blackmailing brother of her first husband-a reprobate from Louisiana--appears at the school gates, their dreadful secret is revealed and the county is scandalized.

    The central theme of the novel is the sexual jealousy of Louis Trevelyn who unjustly accuses his wife Emily of a liason with a friend of her father's. As his suspicion deepens into madness, Trollope gives us a profound psychological study in which Louis' obsessive delirium is comparable to the tormented figure of Othello, tragically flawed by self-deception.

      A new bishop arrives in the fictional cathedral town of Barchester, launching a comical battle for ascendancy among the local clergymen and their dependents. Dr. Proudie, the newly appointed bishop, brings two powerful allies: Mrs. Proudie, the outspoken power behind the ecclesiastical throne, and a scheming chaplain, the odious Obadiah Slope. Anthony Trollope's novel satirizes Anglican Church infighting during the 1850s between "low church" reformers and "high church" conservatives. Trollope's ironic observations and keen social and psychological insights combine to form a tale with timeless appeal.

      The fifth of the Barsetshire Chronicles and sequel to Framely Parsonage, The Small House at Allington (1864) introduces Lily Dale, Trollope's most admired heroine, and recounts the tale of her love for the ambitious, self-seeking Crosbie. Crushed by his faithlessness, she tries unsuccessfully to conceal her grief and, despite the deserving attentions of her honest suitor Johnny Eames, sentences herself to a life of spinsterhood. Critical reception of the novel was among the most favourable Trollope ever received. His analysis of the psychological grip of love, and the complexity of the inner lives of his men and women, is masterful; yet he is equally compelling when, with customary irony and precision, he draws upon a characteristic theme - the invasion of the country side by the disruptive and irresponsible city - to create a vivid picture of the changes occurring in mid-nineteenth-century England.

      This set of six short stories by Anthony Trollope originally appeared in periodicals. Trollope may have drawn upon his experiences as an editor in writing "Mary Gresley," concerning a young woman with literary ambitions, and "The Spotted Dog," chronicling a harried scholar's attempts to work in peace. Christmas stories include "The Mistletoe Bough," a tale of a broken engagement, and "Not If I Know It," relating a family falling-out. Courtship and class distinctions receive wry treatments in "The Parson's Daughter of Oxney Colne," in which a well-to-do suitor receives his comeuppance, and "The Two Heroines of Plumplington," a tale of romance stymied by parental snobbery. 192 pages, paperback.

      Dover Thrift Editions make great literature accessible through offering a vast selection of complete and unabridged works at affordable prices.
