Книга: Trollope A. «Doctor Thorne»

Doctor Thorne

Doctor Thomas Thorne is guardian to his beautiful but impecunious niece, Mary, whose parentage he has always kept secret. Mary falls in love with Frank Gresham, heir to the dwindling Greshamsbury estate, but when Frank proposes, his parents insist that he must marry for money to restore his familys fortunes. Frank is torn between his love for Mary and his sense of familial duty, whilst Doctor Thorne must decide whether to reveal the secret he has kept for so long. In Doctor Thorne Trollope explores themes of money and society and the conflict between tradition and the need for change. Part of the Chronicles of Barsetshire series on which Trollopes reputation primarily rests, it outsold all of his other novels during his lifetime. This gorgeous edition features an afterword by Ned Halley. Designed to appeal to the book lover, the Macmillan Collectors Library is a series of beautiful gift editions of much loved classic titles. Macmillan Collectors Library are books to love and treasure.

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.
