Doctor Thorne

The Chronicles of Barsetshire

Anthony Trollope
Edited by Simon Dentith

Oxford World's Classics

  • Doctor Thorne is a powerful novel in which rank, wealth, and personal feeling are pitted against one another in the central love story of Frank Gresham and Mary Thorne, and in the figure of the complex Doctor himself.
  • A novel in which economic pressures clash with human relationships, and Trollope's satirical and subtle handling of his characters' moral dilemmas is unsurpassed.
  • Lively introduction considers the novel's main themes, Trollope's attitude to class and traditional values, and his comic skill as he develops the plot.
  • Includes a full textual history, helpful notes, and up-to-date bibliography.
  • Includes an appendix on the Barsetshire novels and the Church, Trollope's general introduction to the Chronicles of Barsetshire set, Trollope's map of Barsetshire, and a Biographical Preface.
