• Pièce maitresse, monument en maturité littéraire dans l'oeuvre de Trollope, Les tours de Barchester, est incontestablement le roman le plus abouti du cycle des Chroniques de Barsetshire. Maniant le particulier à des fins universelles, Trollope y raconte l'Angleterre rurale du premier XIXème siècle. Riche, dense, précis, exhaustif en détails, le style de Trollope y est confondant de réalisme. C'est une époque, toute une sociologie ou presque qu'il met à la description. Multipliant les intrigues pour nourrir une narration complexe, Trollope met essentiellement en scène une opposition dans ce livre.
    L'épouse du nouvel évêque, l'ambitieuse Miss Proudie, se rêve en régente. Entre intrigues et faux-semblants, elle fait tout pour faciliter l'avancement de son candidat pour l'investiture à venir au poste de directeur de l'Hospice de Hiram. Le chapelain, Mister Slope s'y oppose : s'en suivra une lutte subtile et discrète entre les deux protagonistes. Dans une Angleterre en plein enrichissement, une époque hypocrite, corrompue et conservatrice pour toile de fonds, cette lutte est bien plus qu'anodine. Trollope, maniant sous-entendus et ironie, y dénonce à merveille les tares morales de l'époque victorienne, montrée comme jamais dans toute sa violence contenue. C'est, in fine, ce qui fait des Tours de Barchester l'un des meilleurs romans anglais jamais écris.

  • Le Docteur Thorne, qui a valu à Anthony Trollope son plus grand succès, constitue (en 1858) l'une des premières apparitions dans le roman anglais du personnage du médecin, appelé à un bel avenir littéraire. Les rapports entre le mariage et l'argent, dans une société inégalitaire mais mobile, sont au coeur d'une intrigue attachante. Le docteur Thorne, célibataire endurci, a recueilli chez lui sa nièce Mary, orpheline, qui est devenue une belle jeune fille. Il souffre de la voir mise à l'écart par la bonne société du village, du fait qu'elle est de naissance obscure et sans fortune. Elle ne saurait épouser celui qu'elle aime, Frank Gresham, un jeune héritier désargenté qui l'aime également, mais dont le devoir est d'épouser « une fortune » pour sauver le domaine familial hypothéqué. Trollope nous offre ici un magnifique roman d'amour, qui se distingue, comme toujours, par la richesse psychologique de ses personnages, l'intérêt de son étude de moeurs et son inspiration aimablement satirique. Traduit de l'anglais, préfacé et annoté par Alain Jumeau

  • Roman traduit de l'anglais, préfacé et annoté par Alain Jumeau Le révérend Mark Robarts, qui occupe la cure de Framley, dans le Barset, et Ludovic Lufton, lord et futur maître du manoir de Framley, sont amis d'enfance. La mère de Ludovic, Lady Lufton, qui tient à affirmer son pouvoir social dans ce petit monde de province, a beaucoup oeuvré pour favoriser le mariage du jeune ecclésiastique avec Fanny Monsell, et elle se montre tout aussi déterminée à voir son fils convoler avec une jeune fille digne de son rang.Par l'intermédiaire de Ludovic, Mark rencontre Nathaniel  Sowerby, un député à la fréquentation compromettante qui le pousse à contresigner des billets de reconnaissance de dettes. Frôlant la catastrophe pour sa famille et le déshonneur pour lui-même, Mark risque aussi de compromettre le mariage de sa soeur.Le héros - souvent fort peu héroïque - de ce roman loué au XIXe siècle par Elizabeth Gaskell et Henry James est entouré de personnages féminins remarquables et attachants, qui comptent parmi les plus belles réussites de Trollope et nous rappellent la place essentielle des femmes dans son univers romanesque. 

  • Miss Mackenzie

    Anthony Trollope

    A single woman in her mid-thirties, Miss Mackenzie receives a sizeable fortune when her brother dies. She must be on her guard as a range of suitors begin to make their interest known.

    Anthony Trollope (1815 - 1882) was a Victorian writer and author of 47 novels. He also wrote an autobiography, short stories and plays, travel articles, reviews and lectures. A prolific writer, he made no secret of the fact that money was his motivation for writing - an admission which raised eyebrows among his literary contemporaries at the time. The amount of works Trollope authored are testament to his belief in hard work. His first successful novel was The Warden followed by its sequel, Barchester Towers. The Chronicles of Barsetshire are perhaps his most well-known series of novels, though many of his works have been adapted for TV and radio, starring many familiar faces such as Alan Rickman, David Tennant, Bill Nighy and Tom Hollander. Alongside his literary career, Trollope also worked for some time for the Post Office and is credited with the introduction of the iconic post box to Britain.

  • Roman traduit de l'anglais par : Alain Jumeau Les Enfants du duc est le sixième et dernier roman du cycle des « Palliser Novels », dont les cinq premiers sont parus chez Albin Michel. Le héros récurrent en est Plantagenet Palliser et le cadre principal en est Londres et Westminster, avec d'âpres luttes d'influence et de pouvoir. Plantagenet Palliser, grande figure du parti libéral, est devenu, par héritage, duc d'Omnium. Dès le début du roman, il connaît un grand malheur puisqu'il perd sa femme, Lady Glencora, emportée par une grippe. Il se retrouve seul pour affronter plusieurs difficultés sérieuses avec ses trois enfants : ses deux fils se sont fait renvoyer de leurs colleges respectifs (l'un des deux se met à jouer aux courses), et sa fille s'est liée à un jeune homme dont la famille appartient à la gentry, lui faisant craindre une mésalliance. Le roman est hanté par le personnage de Lady Glencora qui, malgré sa disparition, continue de faire sentir son influence sur tous, et d'abord sur son mari. Cette évocation, par Trollope, de l'automne du patriarche est considérée comme un sommet, particulièrement émouvant, de son oeuvre.

  • "The American Senator" by Anthony Trollope contains one of his most memorable character creations in Arabella Trefoil, whose determination to find a wealthy husband at any cost lies at the heart of this story. The Senator of the title, Elias Gotobed, is attempting to learn more about England and the English, and through his eyes Trollope is able to parody many aspects of English life and customs. Themes of romance, ambition, marriage, as well as a host of humorous characters - "The American Senator" contains all of the key ingredients which make up a Trollope tale.

  • "The Warden" is the first novel in "The Chronicles of Barsetshire" series and was also Trollope's first breakthrough novel.
    It is the story of a devoted priest, beloved by all who know him, and who is racked by fear that he is accepting money to which he is not entitled. His antagonist is his prospective son-in-law John Bol, whilst his (somewhat unwelcome) ally is the characterful Archdeacon of Barchester, Dr. Theophilus Grantly.
    Based on real events that rocked the mid-nineteenth century and the Church of England, Trollope uses these historical events as a background to explore love, relationships, and morality.



    Anthony Trollope (1815-1882) was one of most succesful British authors of the Victorian era. He has written more than forty novels, as well as many short stories and travelogues. Trollope was also an editor and an active member of the London literary scene. Among his most notable works is the series "The Chronicles of Barsetshire", a series of six novels set in fictional Barsetshire.

  • "Doctor Thorne" is the third of Trollope's Barsetshire novels and unlike some of the others has little to do with politics and religion. The plot revolves around Mary Thorne, an illegitimate child who has been lovingly raised by her uncle, a country doctor, and who, as she comes of age, finds herself wondering whether she is a lady, or to which social class she truly belongs. Frank Gresham, son of the squire of Greshamsbury, is in love with her (much against the wishes of his noble de Courcy relatives at the Castle), but she dismisses his affection at first as mere puppy love, thereby setting the scene for a series of entanglements, both social, romantic, and financial.
    One critic has remarked that in "Doctor Thorne," Trollope succeeds in one of the most difficult tasks an author of fiction can face: how to make genuinely good people genuinely interesting, so that they engage not only the sympathies but also the interest of the reader.

    Set in Devon, where Rachel lives with her widowed mother and older sister, `Rachel Ray' charts the romantic interests of young Rachel. When Londoner Luke Rowan comes to their small village of Baslehurst she becomes infatuated, and the pair are soon engaged. Rumours begin to swirl about Luke's character however, as the locals begin to resent the outsider. Will Rachel and Luke be able to overcome the suspicions of others? First published in 1863 in the earlier stages of Anthony Trollope's literary career, `Rachel Ray' is a fascinating depiction of daily life in a small, rural Victorian community, the power of the Church, and a warning against the dangers of jealousy and gossip. Full of well-drawn, humorous characters, `Rachel Ray' is a great place to start for those new to Trollope.

  • Nouvelle écrite en 1859 et située au Puy-en-Velay, elle relate les amours tumultueuses de deux amants d'un certain âge. Trollope avait par la force des choses beaucoup voyagé en Europe dans sa jeunesse, ses parents ayant dû s'exiler à Bruxelles pour fuir leurs créditeurs, et il parlait assez couramment plusieurs langues, dont le français.

  • `The Way We Live Now' is perhaps the most famous of all Anthony Trollope's novels, and widely considered his masterpiece. A 19th century classic, it follows the tale of the mysterious Augustus Melmotte - a foreign financier who sets himself up in London with his wife and daughter Marie, and soon gains something of a reputation. Trollope wrote the novel on his return to the UK following an extended trip abroad, and was greatly influenced by his shock at the dishonesty and immorality of the financial scandals of the early 1870s that he returned to. The novel has been much adapted for TV and radio, most recently in 2001 as a BBC mini-series starring David Suchet, Matthew Macfadyen and Cillian Murphy.

    Barchester Towers

    Anthony Trollope

    The second in Anthony Trollope's `Chronicles of Barsetshire' series `Barchester Towers' was first published in 1857. The story opens with the death of the much-loved Bishop of Barchester. His grief tempered with ambition, the Bishop's son naturally believes he will succeed his father. However, a power struggle ensues when the zealous Bishop Proudie and his scheming wife descend upon the Cathedral. Familiar characters from the first novel in this series `The Warden' also reappear, including Eleanor Bold and Septimus Harding. There is much comedy to be had among the conflict, as Trollope skilfully captures and satirises the antipathy between the traditional and the new in this, one of the best-loved and most comical novels of the series.

Alors naturellement il eut de nouveau la pensée, presque l'espérance, que quelque incident pourrait encore concilier les choses et amener un mariage entre les deux cousins. Isabel s'était déclarée si catégoriquement sur ce sujet, qu'il n'osa pas lui faire une nouvelle demande. Cependant, il pensait qu'il n'existait pas de raison sérieuse qui les empêchât de devenir mari et femme. Henry, autant qu'il pût le savoir, avait renoncé à ses mauvaises habitudes.

    The Chronicles of Barsetshire (or, in more recent UK usage, the Barchester Chronicles) is a series of six novels by the English author Anthony Trollope, set in the fictitious English county of Barsetshire (located approximately where the real Dorset lies) and its cathedral town of Barchester.

  • "An Editor's Tales" describes a series of encounters between various magazine editors and those who wish to have their works published. While containing some amusing bits, the tales are relatively grim compared to most Trollope stories.
    In "The Turkish Bath", an editor, upon visiting a Turkish bath, is accosted by an Irish stranger, who, after some conversation, requests to submit a manuscript to the magazine. The editor's reactions to the solicitation and subsequent familiarity with the writer's circumstances forms the frame of the story. Humor arises about the Turkish bath situation and the reluctance of editors to make themselves available to amateur writers.
    "Mary Gresley" is the rather sad tale of a young girl's giving up her writing career to satisfy the deathbed wish of the curate she was engaged to. The editor in this tale (and also in the next) becomes rather involved emotionally with the girl and wishes her to continue writing.
    "Josephine de Montmorenci" is actually the proposed pen name of a disabled young lady, who only becomes acquainted with the editor because her attractive sister-in law-initially pretends to be that author.
    "The Panjandrum" (meaning "appearing to be important") is a magazine proposed by a group of literate but incompatible, inexperienced, would-be writers. The clash of personalities brings about the demise of the venture.
    "The Spotted Dog" is the story of a writer down on his luck. He and his wife drink excessively. He's well educated and the editor offers him the task of indexing the work of a third person, but his drunken wife destroys the manuscript.
    "Mrs. Brumby" is the most amusing of the tales. In this one the editor encounters a poor writer who is, unfortunately for him, also a remarkably aggressive and ambitious woman.
