Palliser Novels

Rature's greatest achievements While the novels center around the stately politician Plantagenet Palliser the interest is less in politics than in the lively social scene Trollope creates against a Parliamentary backdrop His keen eye for the subtleties of character and great apprehension of the real impressed contemporary writers from Nathaniel Hawthorne to Henry James and in the Palliser Novels we find him at his very best Between the covers of these books we meet a wonderfully rich variety of men and women among them Alice Vavasor whose waverings between suitors and the resulting mess prompted Trollope to ask Can Your Forgive Her; the handsome Irish MP Phineas Finn who grows to maturity as the novels progress; the beautiful enchantress Lizzie Eustace whose scandalous diamonds are the talk of London high society.

; Ferdinand Lopez the unctuous social climber; the elegant and witty Lady Glencora Plantagenet's wife; and Palliser himself first as a cabinet aspirant later as Prime Minister who is the connecting thread that holds the series together Along the way we are also introduced to a host of amusing and sharply drawn characters of less social status who much like the bumpkins of Shakespeare offer a distorting yet insightful fun house mirror to the main action Nowhere else did Trollope bring to life in such compelling fashion the teeming world of Victorian society and politics and nowhere else did he create memorable and living characters than those who populate these six volumes As a group the Palliser Novels provide us with the most extensive and telling expose of British life during the period of its greatest prestige. So far I ve read Can You Forgive Her Phineas Finn and The Eustace Diamonds All enjoyable and looooong Excellent writing with insights into human behavior but reading about the British 19th century upper crust is kind of surreal Most of these people could solve most of their problems by getting a regular job But that s not possible becauseoh because fancy people don t work I m going to take a little break from this series because the books are long and the style themes and subject matter not varied enough to sustain for thousands and thousands pages on top of the thousands I ve so recently savored Catch and Release the unctuous social climber; Devils Paw (Imp, the elegant and witty Lady Glencora Plantagenet's wife; and Palliser himself first as a cabinet aspirant later as Prime Minister who is Canyons of Night (Rainshadow, the connecting In the Eyes of Crazy (Kontras Menagerie the series Tea Environments and Plantation Culture together Along 50 Hikes in the Adirondack Mountains the way we are also introduced Survive by the Team to a host of amusing and sharply drawn characters of less social status who much like Angels & Demons (Angels & Demons, the bumpkins of Shakespeare offer a distorting yet insightful fun house mirror Washington!

    An excellent series of books that highlight London society although the text can be very lenghty the development of the plot makes the length of the books worth reading in most casesMichael Hardwick has also abridged the six novels into one volume that is half the length of the first book but many of the subplots are eliminated from this textThe series has also been released as a mini series by the BBC I believe
