The final Barsetshire novel by Anthony Trollope, published serially in 1866-67 and in book form in 1867. It is a satirical view of a materialistic society. The principal figures of the novel appeared in earlier BARSETSHIRE NOVELS. It is the story--with elaborate complications--of a poor curate accused of stealing p20. -- The Merriam-Webster Encyclopedia of Literature --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Founded in 1906 by J.M. Dent, the Everyman Library has always tried to make the best books ever written available to the greatest number of people at the lowest possible price. Unique editorial features that help Everyman Paperback Classics stand out from the crowd include: a leading scholar or literary critic's introduction to the text, a biography of the author, a chronology of her or his life and times, a historical selection of criticism, and a concise plot summary. All books published since 1993 have also been completely restyled: all type has been reset, to offer a clarity and ease of reading unique among editions of the classics; a vibrant, full-color cover design now complements these great texts with beautiful contemporary works of art. But the best feature must be Everyman's uniquely low price. Each Everyman title offers these extensive materials at a price that competes with the most inexpensive editions on the market-but Everyman Paperbacks have durable binding, quality paper, and the highest editorial and scholarly standards. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Editorial Reviews

This is a long novel, even for Trollope (just under 900 pages), but in my opinion, the longer the better: why would you want it to end? Read morePublished 18 months ago by Meredith
