Barchester Towers has always been the best-known of Trollope’s books. And yet it disgusted some early readers – why? Trollope was ordered to remove his reference to Mr Slope’s bad breath as this was seen as simply too vulgar. It’s a very funny novel, as Eleanor and the Signora contend with too many suitors, Mrs Proudie struggles for dominance against all who come near her, and the men of God are revealed to have all too human failings.
From such a rich cast of characters, it’s hard to select a favourite, but I think mine has to be that kindly and rather naïve middle-aged man, Mr Harding. Which character would you choose? Come and explore the irony and the comedy of this classic novel and learn more about its themes, setting and characters.
