About the Author

Anthony Trollope (1815-1882) was one of the most successful, prolific, and respected English novelists of the Victorian era. Some of his best-known books collectively comprise the Chronicles of Barsetshire series, which revolves around the imaginary county of Barsetshire and includes the books The Warden, Barchester Towers, Doctor Thorne, and others. Trollope wrote nearly 50 novels in all, in addition to short stories, essays, and plays.

Table of Contents

Doctor Thorne is the third of the six highly popular Chronicles of Barsetshire

In many ways Doctor Thorne is Trollope's ideal character - human, reticent, stern and honourable. He has the strength to stand up to the destructive prejudices and fears of mid-Victorian society but at the same time does not abandon its traditional values.

Doctor Thorne is about the problem of an unsuitable marriage. Shall young Frank Gresham, heir to a great impoverished estate, marry the penniless Mary Thorne? Shall Doctor Thorne, her uncle, disclose that she may herself become heiress to a huge fortune? In the anxieties of honest people who behave without heroics; in the gentle satire with which great persons are described; and in the pleasant humour which pervades the book, Trollope reveals the subtlety which is so characteristic of his novels.
