ORIEY FARM by Anthony with introduction by Henry S. Dr Trollope


Email this review


Possibly not so well known as Chronicles of Barsetshire, or the Parliamentary series, this novel, with its legal background, has a very special gallery of admirers. Now available in readable form, it launches a new series under the Knopf imprint, edited and with introduction by Henry S. Drinker. The editor has gone to some pains to give a background of Trollope and his writing habits, the sources of his material, the tumult that resounded from the legal profession over the inaccuracies in this novel (and others of its ilk) and the basic values which are making Trollope immortal. His 48 novels charm even today with their vivid reality, wholesomeness and incidental humor. This new edition, in excellent type, will introduce, as its first volume, C Farm to a new audience. Trollope has staged a substantial comeback. Witness the new Oxford illustrated Trollope, with the also little known Pallister Series, launched launched in 1949.
