Can You Forgive Her?

New Edition

Anthony Trollope
Edited by Dinah Birch

Oxford World's Classics

  • The first of Trollope's six Palliser novels, Can You Forgive Her? concerns a woman's desire for independence painfully at odds with her feelings for two suitors, as Trollope explores the tensions in Victorian society between reform and tradition, and the interplay between money, power, and politics.
  • Dinah Birch's lively introduction discusses the relationships at the heart of the novel and elucidates the complexities of the text.
  • An emphasis on issues of gender, social and economic change, and politics in the introduction clarifies the novel's place in contemporary life.
  • The edition reflects recent critical revaluations of Trollope's significance as a major novelist, including the influence of the new economic criticism, and new interests in Victorian liberalism.
  • Updated critical bibliography.
  • Invaluable appendix outlines the political context of the Palliser novels and establishes the internal chronology of the series and the relationship between fictional and actual political events, providing a unique understanding of the series as a linked narrative.
  • Biographical Preface provides a compact biography of Anthony Trollope, and a Chronology charts his life against the major historical events of the period.
  • Explanatory Notes elucidate cultural, literary, and political allusions.
  • Introduction, select bibliography, explanatory notes by Dinah Birch.
  • Biographical Preface outlining Trollope's life, and new Chronology.
