The Small House at Allington

Anthony Trollope
Edited by Dinah Birch

Oxford World's Classics

  • A novel whose captivating heroine, Lily Dale, divides readers' opinion, and whose dilemma reflects more widely on relations between the sexes and social change.
  • The fifth novel in Trollope's Barchester series, The Small House at Allington revolves around courtships and the social codes that define the lives of its characters.
  • Dinah Birch's new edition identifies the novel as a subtle study of the heroism and the cost of constancy, drawing out the intense psychological drama which lies at the heart of the story, and how it reflects Trollope's divided feelings about change in a rapidly evolving world.
  • Includes a unique Appendix by Nicholas Shrimpton on the Barsetshire novels and the Church.
  • Includes Trollope's general introduction to the Chronicles of Barstshire, Trollope's map of Barsetshire, a Biographical Preface, Notes and an up-to-date Bibliography.
