Trollope, Anthony: The Claverings. v1. 15 Aug. 07

This is a great Anthony Trollope novel, the second one I ever read after The Warden [see Upload section].

This is the novel that really got me hooked on Trollope. If you like Victorian novels, but have been afraid of reading him, then this one I feel is an excellent introduction to his art of storytelling and characterization.

Here’s one quote about this book:

"Needless to say, The Claverings is more than a love story, in classic Trollope fashion. At its most profound, it's a difficult soul-searching of what matters most in life, and how best to get there. And, unlike many of Trollope's other works, he doesn't leave a clear safety net under his characters - you really aren't sure things are going to work out, after all.

I would heartily recommend this to anyone who is either an old Trollope pro or someone wanting to get a taste of Trollope for the first time. Perhaps you, like me, will find the world of Trollope to be rich and worthy of a year or two of your free time."


I hope you enjoy it.
