'The fact is, Mark, that you and I cannot conceive the depth of fraud in such a man as that.'

The Reverend Mark Robarts makes a mistake. Drawn into a social set at odds with his clerical responsibilities, he guarantees the debts of an unscrupulous Member of Parliament. He stands to lose his reputation, and his family, future, and home are all in peril. His patroness, the proud and demanding Lady Lufton, is offended and the romantic hopes of Mark's sister Lucy, courted by Lady Lufton's son, are in jeopardy. Pride and ambition are set against love and integrity in a novel that has remained one of Trollope's most popular stories.

Set against ecclesiastical events in the Barchester diocese and informed by British political instability after the Crimean War, Trollope's fourth Barchester novel was his first major success. This new edition sets the novel in the context of Trollope's developing craft against the backdrop of contemporary clerical and parliamentary affairs, and includes a lively introduction and invaluable notes. A compelling history of uncertain futures, Framley Parsonage is a vivid exploration of emotional and geographical displacement that grew out of Trollope's own experiences as he returned to England from Ireland in 1859.

Industry Reviews

Convincingly argues that its narrative of "precarious livings and tenancy" displaces to Barsetshire topical concerns about land ownership and occupation in Ireland. * Matthew Ingleby, The Times Literary Supplement *
