The famous Palliser
series by Anthony Trollope
totals six (6) novels and involves English politics centered around Parliment, with characters whom we come to care about. These are characters with human traits and foilbles, and their concerns become our concerns. They breathe and live on the page, due to Trollope's artistry.
I've put together all six novels, and they are available as six seperate downloads here.
Since this is the first one of the Palliser series, I thought I would list them all in order:
1.) Can You Forgive Her? (1864)
2.) Phineas Finn (1869)
3.) The Eustace Diamonds (1873)
4.) Phineas Redux (1874)
5.) The Prime Minister (1876)
6.) The Duke's Children (1879)
Here's a quote about the first one in this series:
"Having almost completed chronicling the ecclesiastical affairs of Barchester in 1864, [NOTE: This other series of famous novels also totals six, and are available for download here at MobileRead] Anthony Trollope began a further series of six novels, this time depicting the English political scene of his day in general and the members of the Palliser family in particular. This one, the first of the six novels, carries a title that carries no hint of any political content whatsoever. Indeed, the "her" of the title is a perverse young lady, Alice, who refuses for almost 900 pages to marry the man whom all agree is so eminently suitable. Alice is one of at least four women that Trollope presents, all of whom struggle to answer the question, "What should a woman do with her life?" As usual with his female characters, Trollope is a sensitive, sure and unsentimental narrator. The business of the men, and the political issues they address, seem to consist in keeping solvent, gaining a seat and an office in parliament, and sniffing out any parliamentary intrigues. All of which might suggest that this is one early Victorian novel that today's feminists could pick up, read, and enjoy."
I hope you enjoy it.
