The Warden

It was so hard that the pleasant waters of his little stream should be disturbed and muddied ... that his quiet paths should be made a battlefield: that the unobtrusive corner of the world which been allotted to him ... made miserable and unsound'. Trollope's witty, satirical story of a quiet cathedral town shaken by scandal - as the traditional values of Septimus Harding are attacked by zealous reformers and ruthless newspapers - is a drama of conscience that pits individual integrity against worldly ambition. In "The Warden" Anthony Trollope brought the fictional county of Barsetshire to life, peopled by a cast of brilliantly realised characters that have made him among the supreme chroniclers of the minutiae of Victorian England. The first book in the Chronicles of Barsetshire. The Penguin English Library - 100 editions of the best fiction in English, from the eighteenth century and the very first novels to the beginning of the First World War..

TROLLOPE (A.)

TROLLOPE ANTHONY (1815-1888)

Issu d’une famille bourgeoise, Trollope fit de bonnes études et devint fonctionnaire de l’administration des postes. Il entreprit une carrière littéraire assez tardivement et mena l’écriture de ses nombreux romans avec une exemplaire régularité. Le succès que remporta son premier roman, Le Gérant (The Warden , 1855), l’amena à développer une série d’ouvrages ayant pour cadre le comté imaginaire du Barsetshire et qui constitue une chronique de la vie provinciale en douze volumes. Il s’essaya au roman politique (Phineas Finn , 1889) en s’intéressant plus au fonctionnement du système qu’aux idées politiques. Trollope donna aussi des études purement psychologiques et d’âpres satires sociales telles que Les Diamants des Eustace (The Eustace Diamonds , 1873) et Notre Vie d’aujourd’hui (The Way We Live Now , 1875).

Bien que Trollope ne travaille pas sur des observations pures et n’ait pas une connaissance précise des milieux qu’il décrit, on peut le ranger parmi les réalistes par son style assez uniforme, par son projet constant de produire l’impression d’une vérité moyenne et par son souci de la vraisemblance.
