Doctor Thorne (Revised)
Doctor Thorne (Revised) | Anthony Ed Trollope
'Frank has but one duty before him. He must marry money.' The squire of Greshamsbury has fallen on hard times, and it is incumbent on his son Frank to make a good marriage. But Frank loves the doctor's niece, Mary Thorne, a girl with no money and mysterious parentage. He faces a terrible dilemma: should he save the estate, or marry the girl he loves? Mary, too, has to battle her feelings, knowing that marrying Frank would ruin his family and fly in the face of his mother's opposition. Her pride is matched by that of her uncle, Dr Thorne, who has to decide whether to reveal a secret that would resolve Frank's difficulty, or to uphold the innate merits of his own family heritage. The character of Dr Thorne reflects Trollope's own contradictory feelings about the value of tradition and the need for change. The lively introduction included considers the novel's main themes, Trollope's attitude to class and traditional values, and his comic skill as he develops the plot. His subtle portrayal, and the comic skill and gentle satire with which the story is developed, are among the many pleasures of this delightful novel. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

#12booksof2023 May saw the reunion of the #BandofTrollopes with a loose buddy read of the third book in the Barchester series. The language takes a minute to get used to, but then it is a joy to sink into these gentle comedies.

#Trollopeing #BandOfTrollopes what a joy to spend time with these characters!Dr.Thorne & Mary are such generally good sorts,while most of the others are obsessed with inheritance, land,titles,money, & appearances.Poor Frank! If I were playing a drinking game & took a drink every time he was told “You must marry money”,I‘d be in the same condition as Louis Scatcherd!And no, I still haven‘t found vol.2 of my old edition of this book!🙄

Cinfhen Cute hashtags 😁 12mo
Leftcoastzen @Cinfhen Yes , our little group has had fun with them. Thanks! 12mo

Loved my time spent with the good Doctor, Mary, and all the assorted Greshams, Scatcherds, and other characters here. Trollope is just such a joy to read, and I'm so tempted to dive right into another, although I won't for many reasons. Probably 😉

Ruthiella I know what you mean. Despite my enthusiasm, it took me six years to read the Barsetshire Chronicles and four to read the Palliser series. 12mo

Hooked_on_books I‘m with @LeslieO on that cover! 12mo
quietjenn @Ruthiella One nice thing about taking him so slowly is that with every book I'm delighted to be reminded about how great his writing is and how much I enjoy it. 12mo
quietjenn @Hooked_on_books @LeslieO I just couldn't resist buying the series in this edition, as they are all so striking (and I do love a matching but not matchy set). 12mo
quietjenn @Leftcoastzen Glad you found another option and that you are enjoying it! 12mo
quietjenn @batsy definitely feeling the need to change things up a bit, although I've not quite settled on how, which has meant dipping into a little of everything until something hooks. 12mo

Loved being back in Trollope's world. Time slows down & you're fully immersed in a Victorian world of inheritance, property, desire, money, & marriage with Trollope frequently breaking the fourth wall. His verbosity is part of his style, which I enjoy. I thought Frank's "flirtation" with Miss Dunstable very un-Victorian & modern, & Miss Dunstable herself a truly memorable character. Plan to watch the 2016 series! #Trollopeing #BandofTrollopes

zezeki So glad you liked it! I'm about half way through, and I also really liked Miss Dunstable's character! I'm really curious to see how everything will resolve! 13mo
zezeki Also, this cover is gorgeous! 😍 13mo
batsy @zezeki The Vintage editions are nice ❤️ Unfortunately I didn't order the whole series before Book Depository closed and it's hard finding Trollope elsewhere! I thought the book resolved very satisfactorily. I hope you enjoy it till the end 🙂 13mo

#Trollopeing #BandOfTrollopes how do you know you are reading a Victorian novel ? When the author says this novel is about Dr.Thorne but the background means you don‘t really meet the character till chapter 3 ! I borrowed ebook cuz I have a dozen Trollopes in the house yet none are Dr.Thorne!

tokorowilliamwallace I still need to get to my recently-acquired Barchester Towers! I love the infamous Victorian Germanic sentence! And I love background context, so ones that get lengthy, bogged down, and rambling are my thing! But also my reading attention is poor. But it's my communication style. 1y
batsy I'm going to try to dive in when I have cleared some time for this. Hopefully by next week or into early June 😬 I'm so glad I have a physical copy of this but I realise I don't own the remaining books in the Chronicles and with no easy way to obtain them 😭 #RIPBookDepository 1y
Liz_M Apparently AT asked his brother to suggest a plot. The brother came up with Mary's background and some other legal details which come into play later. So there needed to be more scene setting for this one, rather than just starting with Dr. Thorne or the Greshams. 1y
Leftcoastzen @batsy I thought of you when I heard they were closing, I think it must be hard to find the books you like . Every book distributor or store lost is sad , but more devastating some places more than others. 1y

Just finished the third book in The Barchester Chronicles. Doctor Thorne must manage the shenanigans and impending fallout brought on by Frank Gresham and his poor estate management. Trollope's 19th c. dry wit and keen observations of English societal moires make it seem as if you are peeking in the neighbors windows. Loving this series! 5/5 ⭐️

Next up...Framley Parsonage!

About 200 pages in, a parliamentary candidate is dismissed by the book's hero as a "muff" because it is discovered that he would "vote for an extension of the franchise, and the admission of the Jews into Parliament."

So, on the one hand I will probably keep reading these as they're delightful Victorian romances. But on the other hand, fuck you Anthony Trollope, you dirty Jew-hating asshat.

We have just started watching this on Amazon and I really like it. But the intros and postscripts by Julian Fellowes irk me. He is a brilliant screenwriter, but I don't need an explanation of moral complexity in characters or a lecture on why Trollope is a good novelist. 😡 Anyone else watch this miniseries? I expect I'm late to the party.

Just finished my first book on @SerialReader. And now I'm totally in love with the app.

Trollope's writing is such a delight. He is seriously witty and definitely knows how to draw out suspense (which is saying something, since I already knew the ending from the miniseries). There were a few extra-long explanations, but Trollope's voice is so delightful that I even enjoyed many of those. I had a blast! #serialreader #classics
