THE WARDEN ANTHONY TROLLOPE was born in London in 1815 and died in 1882. ANTHONY TROLLOPE was born in London in 1815 and died in 1882. His father was a barrister who went bankrupt and the family was maintained by his mother, Frances, who resourcefully in later life became a bestselling writer. He received little education and his childhood generally seems to have been an unhappy one. Happily established in a successful career in the Post Office (from which he retired in 1867), Trollope’s first novel was published in 1847.

This is the first of Anthony Trollope's "Chronicles of Barsetshire" novels, and his first popularly successful novel. The Kindle version of this book has no problems that I notice. I am now reading the second book in the series. One person found this helpful. The basic plot is that the Warden, Mr. Harding, has 1) a sinecure church position that pays him 800 pounds a year; 2) a reform-minded friend who's trying to abolish church sinecures; 3) a daughter who wants to marry the reform-minded friend; and 4) an existing son-in-law of an Archdeacon who takes defending the Rights of the Church.

Certainly she had been victorious, certainly she had achieved her object, certainly she was not unhappy, and yet she did not feel herself triumphant. Everything would run smooth now.

His theories were all beautiful, and the code of morals that he taught us certainly an improvement on the practices of the age.

Activists and budding political strategists of all stripes should read 'The Warden' by Anthony Trollope. The plot revolves around characters who are ideologically opposed to each other. We would label the antagonists conservatives and progressives today.

Энтони Троллоп - известный английский писатель, один из успешных и талантливых романистов Викторианской эпохи. Его романы отражают самые главные проблемы того времени - остросоциальные, семейные и политические. Смотритель"-это первый роман писателя из цикла" Барсетширские хроники", в котором представлена история борьбы кроткого пожилого начальника больницы с ревностным молодым реформатором; сентиментальность истинно по-викториански соседствует со злым и едким критическим реализмом, а острый сюжет - с откровенной пародийностью эпизодов.

The Warden, published in 1855, is the first book in Anthony Trollope's Chronicles of Barsetshire series of six novels. It was his fourth novel. The Warden concerns Mr Septimus Harding, the meek, elderly warden of Hiram's Hospital and precentor of Barchester Cathedral, in the fictional county of Barsetshire. Hiram's Hospital is an almshouse supported by a medieval charitable bequest to the Diocese of Barchester.

Number 217 of The World's Classics series by Oxford University Press. Lovely pocket sized hardcover of Trollope's classic. The Warden is the first novel of the Barsetshire series. Introduction by Richard Church, 1961.

This is the first of Anthony Trollope's "Chronicles of Barsetshire" novels, and his first popularly successful novel. The basic plot is that the Warden, Mr. Harding, has 1) a sinecure church position that pays him 800 pounds a year; 2) a reform-minded friend who's trying to abolish church sinecures; 3) a daughter who wants to marry the reform-minded friend; and 4) an existing son-in-law of an Archdeacon who takes defending the Rights of the Church very, very seriously.

If you like Jane Austen novels there's a good chance you'll like this, as the basic plots -- church livings, the marriage prospects of 19th-centry british gentry -- are fairly similar. Trollope's prose here is fairly light and clear, and if not quite as sharply witty as Austen's, no one else's prose is either. Trollope does spill a great deal of ink on lengthy asides to the reader, some of which paint interesting pictures of contemporary British culture and some of which modern readers may find *amazingly* skippable.

Overall, this one's a lightly pleasant example of precisely the sort of intelligent, Victorian parlor romance it's trying to be. If you like this, the next volume in sequence is Barchester Towers; it's a bit more comically satirical, somewhere in between this and P.G. Wodehouse, but almost certainly something you'll enjoy if you liked this one.

This book is the first of six novels in the Barsetshire series of novels written by Trollope in the 1870s. Trollope is considered to be one of the best authors of Britain's Victorian age. All six volumes are very entertaining reads. These volumes are beautifully produced by Oxford University Press in their World Classics series. Why I choose the title for the review of this book is that this series is a presentation of England at the time it was written. The characters feel they lived in the best of all possible worlds-that the British Empire would rule the world forever and they were the luchiest people ever to be born when and where they were. They are close enough to us for the modern reader to reconise as us. When we read these volumes we see many things wrong with their society. I have the feeling that when people who live 120 years in the future look back they will see us and our society the same way we look back on the characters in these books. You will enjoy these books if you read them-hopefully they will make you think of matters we seldom think of.

I bought this after reading an article in The New Yorker about a burgeoning revival of interest in Anthony Trollope. I selected "The Warden" for rather shameful reasons: (a) it was short; and (b) it was inexpensive. I enjoyed it more than I thought I would. The prose is definitely mannered: it is clearly a product of its era; and mild intrigue within the Church of England is not terribly gripping. However it's a nice period piece, and Trollope does get off a few "good ones", within the context of his time and place. The background is interesting - the politics and economics of caring for the aged poor in 19th century English villages. Quite a nice evening's reading.

I have seen references to Anthony Trollope from time to time for decades, but didn't realise that he was a novelist; I thought he was an essayist. I like The Warden and I like Mr. Harding, the Warden. Trollope's characters seem very real to me. Mr. Harding has flaws, perhaps too willing to float through his life accepting what he is given, but heroically follows his conscience when it matters.
The Kindle version of this book has no problems that I notice. I am now reading the second book in the series.

In the 15th century, Hiram's Hospital was established as a perpetual charitable home for 12 poor old men, each being replaced at his death. Over the years the income from the property of the estate has increased to the point where the warden of the hospital enjoys a substantial salary.
The Rev. Septimus Harding (the Warden), kind, gentle, and conscientious, loves his comfortable position and is loved by the old men under his care - until his life is disrupted by a REFORMER, in the person of young John Bold, who questions the ample income of the warden, while the old men still receive only pennies a day. Bold brings in a solicitor and interests the newspaper The Jupiter (obviously the London Times), which makes the issue a national debate.
Although the church stands behind the warden with all its influence, the gentle Mr. Harding himself begins to doubt the propriety of his position. The matter becomes further complicated when Bold and Harding's daughter Eleanor fall in love.
This first of the six Barsetshire novels is by far the shortest and concentrates almost exclusively on the main plot. (In fact, Trollope inserts a criticism of the long serial novels of the day, although he later adopted that same mode.) "The Warden" is not so rich in detail or in the extensive cultural ambience of the later novels, but it is an excellent introduction to this deservedly acclaimed series. It introduces many vivid characters who grow and develop delightfully in the later novels.
