The Last Chronicle of Barset

Anthony Trollope
Edited by Helen Small

Oxford World's Classics

  • The final volume in the Chronicles of Barsetshire, The Last Chronicle is regarded by many as Trollope's greatest novel. Panoramic in scale, it is a fitting conclusion to the series, and a masterpiece of plotting and characterization.
  • The subtle portrayal of the novel's central character, the fanatically proud curate Josiah Crawley, reaches tragic proportions, and the threads of multiple sub-plots are brought together in a deeply satisfying and moving finale.
  • The introduction considers the novel's multifarious forms, comic, tragic, psychological and moral, and Trollope's skill in portraying relationships and a society with perspicuity and tolerance.
  • Includes helpful notes, a Biographical Preface and Chronology and up-to-date bibliography.
  • Includes Trollope's general introduction to the Chronicles of Barsetshire, Trollope's map of Barsetshire, and an invaluable Appendix on the Barsetshire novels and the Church.
