Some brief overview of this book

Set in a village in the Vosges mountains in north-eastern France, The Golden Lion of Granpere (1867) was written when Trollope was at the height of his popularity. The novel concerns the events in the lives of an innkeepers family; the relationship between George Voss, the landlords son, and his beloved Marie, the rivalry between Voss and another suitor for Maries hand in marriage, and the results of a betrothal based on mutual misunderstandings. A small-scale work, precise and detailed, it demonstrated a skill and level of social analysis peculiarly Trollopes own.

This is a romance devoid of political dimension, yet acutely attentive to what a contemporary critic called the characteristic dress in which the small diplomacies of all kinds of social life clothe themselves.

A few words about book author

Trollope (1815-1882) started his writing career while working in Ireland as a postal surveyor. Travelling around the country, Trollope gained knowledge of the country and its people which proved to be useful material for his first two novels, The Macdermots of Ballycloran (1847) and The Kellys and the OKellys (1848). Trollope soon started writing fiercely, producing a series entitled Chronicles of Barsetshire.

The Warden, the first in the series, was published in 1855. Barchester Toweemonstrated a skill and level of social analysis peculiarly Trollopes own. This is a romance devoid of political dimension, yet acutely attentive to what a contemporary critic called the characteristic dress in which the small diplomacies of all kinds of social life clothe themselves.
