"I never saw anything like you clergymen ... you are always thinking of fig hting each other" After the death of old Dr Grantly, a bitter struggle begins over who will s ucceed him as Bishop of Barchester. And when the decision is finally made t o appoint the evangelical Dr Proudie, rather than the son of the old bishop , Archdeacon Grantly, resentment and suspicion threaten to cause deep divis ions within the diocese. Trollope's masterly depiction of the plotting and back-stabbing that ensues lies at the heart of one of the most vivid and co mic of his Barsetshire novels, peopled by such very different figures as th e saintly Warden of Hiram's Hospital, Septimus Harding, the ineffectual but well-meaning new bishop and his terrifying wife, and the oily chaplain Mr Slope who has designs both on Mr Harding's daughter and the fascinating wou ld-be femme fatale Signora Vesey-Neroni. This is the second volume of Trollope's Chronicles of Barsetshire. In his i ntroduction, Robin Gilmour examines the novel's political and social backgr ound and Trollope's concern with changes occurring in society. This edition also includes a preface by J. K. Galbraith. For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world.
