The Warden

Second Edition

Anthony Trollope
Edited by Nicholas Shrimpton

Oxford World's Classics

  • The Warden inaugurated Trollope's Chronicles of Barsetshire series, introducing the fictional cathedral town of Barchester and the characters of Septimus Harding, the Warden, and his son-in-law Archdeacon Grantly.
  • The only edition to include Trollope's last piece of Barsetshire fiction, 'The Two Heroines of Plumplington', the first time Trollope's Barsetshire cycle has been complete in this way.
  • Introduction that considers the work's bold ambitions as a Condition of England novel, a charming social comedy that also seriously engages with contemporary social abuses.
  • Fascinating explanatory notes and a full textual history.
  • A substantial appendix on the Barsetshire novels and the Church, the most up-to-date survey of its kind and essential reading for all Trollope lovers.
  • The edition also includes Trollope's general introduction to the Chronicles of Barsetshire set, Trollope's Map of Barsetshire, a Biographical Preface and up-to-date Bibliography.
