Overview

The last work of Trollope's series the Chronicles of Barsetshire, this novel concludes the unfinished stories of many characters from the previous novels, all the while centering on the impoverished Mr. Crawley, educated curate of Hogglestock. His daughter Grace wishes to marry Major Henry Grantly, the son of Archdeacon Grantly, who considers her unworthy of his son, although acknowledging that she is a lady of merit. Her courtship with Henry is further jeopardized when Mr. Crawley is accused of theft by writing a counterfeit check, which he cannot remember committing. The ensuing trial upsets the entire parish of Barset and threatens to tear apart Reverend Crawley's family. While clearly a satirical story of a society's materialism, "The Last Chronicle of Barset" also reveals Trollope's attention to the most minute details of human behavior. In depicting the complex character of the Reverend Crawley, the author creates a man full of self-doubt, whose pride has been humiliated time and again by the demeaning effects of destitution, and whose increasingly disconsolate state of mind threatens to prove a tragedy.

Meet the Author

Anthony Trollope (1815-1882) was born in London to a bankrupt barrister father and a mother who, as a well-known writer, supported the family. Trollope enjoyed considerable acclaim both as a novelist and as a senior civil servant in the Post Office. He published more than forty novels and many short stories that are regarded by some as among the greatest of nineteenth-century fiction.
