Book Description

Then she took herself off, forgetting in her angry spirit the prudential motives which had induced her to begin the conversation with Souchey. But Souchey, though he was going to Madame Zamenoy's house to get his dinner, and was looking forward with much eagerness to the mess of hot cabbage and the cold sausage, had by no means become "one of them" in the Windberg-gasse. He had had more than one interview of late with Lotta Luxa, and had perceived that something was going on, of which he much desired to be at the bottom.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Trollope and Social Politics 24 octobre 2009
Par Shirley Lendway - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Trollope's first novel in his Barsetshire series was The Warden. It was based on the corruption at St. Cross Hospital during the early nineteenth century by its Master, Francis North, in Winchester, England.

At the time of the Second Reform Act of 1867, Trollope had written the first of his Paliser series, which was a political novel. At this time, he also wrote Nina Balatka, a novel which reflects the beginning of the end of social restrictions inflicted on Jews in Prague. It concerns the love between a Catholic woman, Nina, and a Jewish man, Anton Trendellsohn who was a merchant.

It is the story of the couple's triumph over family manipulation and lies to find a life for themselves. With so many stereotypical Jewish characters in Trollope's prolific literature, Nina Balatka serves as an effective way to demonstrate that his antisemitism is satirical and stops with his characters while his sympathy for the Jew is without reservation.

Trollope was able to proceed with his political life by running for parliament representing the borough of Beverley. He was unsuccessful but was able to continue his series of Paliser novels. Part of his goal was to chronicle anti-semitism in Victorian England which he did successfully. Due to his evenhandedness in writing Nina Balatka, the prejudice was never one of which he could be accused.

George Eliot followed his lead by writing Daniel Deronda,a story about a Jew who is also betrayed by his family but eventually finds love among one of his own. Although she is generally considered of higher intellect than Trollope, she was not able to rid her novel of her personal conviction that married women are dull, dependent creatures who are unable to think for themselves. In this respect, Nina Balatka is refreshing as a fearless heroine, willing to face the duplicity of her family in the name of love.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Anthony Trollope in Prague 28 décembre 2013

A very good book with Prague as a background. Anthony Trollope was visiting there when he wrote this book, even published under an assumed name.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Love against all odds in Prague. 13 août 2013
Par Russell Fanelli - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Anthony Trollope typically writes long novels with several story lines that come together as the novel progresses. Not so with Nina Balatka. Set in Prague in the middle of the nineteenth century when anti-Semitism made life difficult for the Jews, the story begins with the announcement that a lovely yet desperately poor Christian girl named Nina Balatka is engaged to marry a rich Jewish man named Anton Trendellsohn. Everyone in the Christian and Jewish community is against the marriage and Nina's aunt and cousin do all they can to prevent the wedding from taking place.

Nina, a strong willed and completely reliable young woman, is well prepared to defend herself against all of Prague, if necessary. Her chief problem is not the Christians and Jews in Prague, but her betrothed, Anton Trendellsohn. His father owns the house Nina and her father live in, but the Trendellsohns do not have the deed for the property. Anton desperately wants to acquire this document. Nina tells Anton in no uncertain terms that she and her father don't have the deed, but he does not believe her.

The entire novel centers on this lack of trust and its consequences for Nina and Anton. We, the readers, know that Nina is telling the truth. We experience her frustration as again and again she tries to convince Anton that the deed is in the possession of her aunt, uncle, and cousin, who will do anything to prevent her marriage to Anton.

No spoilers here. The reader of this review who wants to find out just what happens to the deed, the great mystery of the story, will have to read the novel to find out. Also, we don't learn until the end of the book if the course of Nina's true love for Anton is rewarded or if Nina throws herself off a bridge in Prague into the Moldau river to drown herself, as she is tempted to do when it appears that she will not marry Anton.

The problem with this novel is that Nina is too good and Anton is clearly unworthy of her great love. All her reason tells her to break off the marriage and we, the readers, are convinced by her logic, even if she is not. When I finally came to the end of this short novel, and none too soon, I was not fully satisfied with the outcome. Even so, this is the work of Anthony Trollope, one of my favorite English authors. Even mediocre Trollope is far superior to anything the reader is likely to find in any modern novel. Nina Balatka is not a place to begin an acquaintance with the novels of Anthony Trollope, but those who love Trollope's work, as I do, are almost certain to find some merit in this novel.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 pretty good, but not among Trollope's best 5 juin 2009

As a Trollope fan, I found this book less captivating than many others. Still, I was glad I read it. It portrayed a certain period of history in a certain section of Prague that was interesting.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Ah! the strong bonds of deep strong love cannot be cast away! 20 mai 2013

Ah! Alas! The deep bonds of authentic love can never be cast off by any opposing force!
What a deep novel that shows truly how we are all human and prone to tenatiously defend that which we believe to be true. A great read and am now going on to another Trollope novel. I did not find this Trollope novel hard to read at all.
