Trollope, Anthony: Can You Forgive Her?, v1.1, 03-18-08

"Having almost completed chronicling the ecclesiastical affairs of Barchester in 1864, 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've hesitated about posting these Palliser novels, because the source material is excellent, and so the free edition provided by Feedbooks, which give good metadata organization, is a good alternative.

But for some reason, their conversion process didn't pick up emdashes that were in the original source, and that bothered me enough to do my own conversions.

Dr. Drib hasn't been around for quite a while, so wasn't able to ask him to provide mobi files for these books. I took the liberty of swiping his book descriptions.

The source material wasn't quite as excellent as I'd first thought. I've now read it on my Kindle and discovered that when the story involved the heroine, Alice, a space was inserted before appostrophes, question marks and emdashes -- very strange. And of course BD often exaggerated the spaces when right-justifying the line.

Made a couple of hundred corrections.
