Trollope, Anthony: The Prime Minister [Palliser 05]. v1. 17 Aug. 07
Here's the fifth of six (6) titles in the famous Palliser series by Anthony Trollope. (Please see the first upload for general information on this series.)
Here's a quote about this book:
"[This] Novel by Anthony Trollope, published serially during 1875 and 1876 and in book form in 1876. Considered by modern critics to represent the apex of the PALLISER NOVELS, it is the fifth in the series and sustains two plot lines. One records the clash between the Duke of Omnium, now prime minister of a coalition government, and his high-spirited wife, Lady Glencora, whose drive to become the most brilliant hostess in society causes embarrassment for her husband and eventually contributes to his downfall. The second plot relates the machinations of Ferdinand Lopez, an ambitious social climber who wins the support of Lady Glencora--but not her husband--for an election campaign. The novel brilliantly dissects the politics of both marriage and government."
I hope you enjoy it.
