The Prime Minister

New Edition

Anthony Trollope
Edited by Nicholas Shrimpton

Oxford World's Classics

  • The Prime Minister is the fifth in Trollope's six-volume Palliser series and a wonderfully subtle portrait of a marriage, political expediency, and misplaced love.
  • Nicholas Shrimpton's introduction explores the many strands of this complex novel, the role of the 'outsider' Ferdinand Lopez, and Trollope's great skill in integrating the two themes of love and politics, the marriage of Palliser and Lady Glencora and that of Emily Wharton and Ferdinand Lopez.
  • 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 gloss cultural and historical allusions and the political scene.
  • Introduction, select bibliography, and explanatory notes by Nicholas Shrimpton.
  • Biographical Preface outlining Trollope's life, and new Chronology.
  • Appendix outlining the political context of the Palliser novels and establishing 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.
  • Improved print appearance with an entirely reset text.
