The first of Trollope’s popular Barsetshire novels, set in the fictional cathedral town of Barchester, The Warden centers on the honorable cleric Septimus Harding, one of Trollope’s most memorable characters. When Harding is accused of mismanaging church funds, his predicament lays bare the complexities of the Victorian world and of nineteenth-century provincial life. And, as Louis Auchincloss observes in his Introduction, “The theme of The Warden presents the kind of social problem that always fascinated Trollope: the inevitable clash of ancient privilege with modern social awareness.”

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very funny I really enjoyed this one. There's a subtle, deadpan humour that I absolutely loved. There's a whole character that's just a satirical version of Charles Dickens named Mr. Popular Sentiment!
