John Bold has lost his heart to Eleanor Harding but he is a political radical who has launched a campaign against the management of the charity of which her father is the Warden. This witty love story combines a comic portrayal of life in an English cathedral with larger social and political issues. The Warden is the first of six books which form Trollope's Barsetshire series of novels. The thoroughly revised new edition includes 'The Two Heroines of Plumplington', the short story which Trollope added just before his death to provide a final episode in the annals of Barsetshire."--Back cover."@en ;
   schema:description ""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."--Provided by publisher."@en ;
