Book 2 in the 'Chronicles of Barsetshire'
This magnificent sequel to The Warden satirizes the struggle for ascendancy among the clergy of a cathedral city as they contend for the newly vacant post of warden of Hiram's Hospital. The contest is between Archdeacon Grantly, favored by the outgoing church authorities, and the ambitious Mr. Obadiah Slope, championed by Mrs. Proudie and the newcomers. Each wishes to become the dominant voice in the quiet diocese of Barchester, but their antics reveal that their priorities are more social and political than spiritual or moral. These intrigues, entwined through the lives of many memorable characters, provide a humorous backdrop for an exploration of the clash between old and new ways in Victorian England.
Rezension: This 1857 sequel to The Warden wryly chronicles the struggle for control of the English diocese of Barchester. The evangelical but not particularly competent new bishop is Dr. Proudie, who with his awful wife and oily curate, Slope, maneuver for power. The Warden and Barchester Towers are part of Trollope's Barsetshire series, in which some of the same characters recur.
