Book Description

Since its first appearance in 1867, this novel has been acclaimed as one of Trollope's most successful protrayals of mid-Victorian life. The Claverings is filled with contemporary detail and shows, as Trollope often does, the weakness of men and the emotional strength of women.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 So, you think you've read everything Trollope has to offer... 25 septembre 2005
Par Matthew Asay - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
...I know I did. After being set onto Phineas Finn a year or two ago, I have been unable to stop a frantic Trollope binge-reading. I thought, however, that I had (unfortunately) read everything Trollope had written, but stumbled across this one.

It is absolutely wonderful. I'm not sure anyone does love triangles as well as Trollope, and The Claverings offers one of his best yet (Harry, Julia, and Florence). Trollope sets it up such that the reader isn't quite sure where Harry's heart should lie in the end (I, for one, wanted Trollope to pull a Phineas Redux and have Harry end up with "Madame Max." But he doesn't, for many good reasons, none of which will make you feel that it couldn't have ended up well with...well, I won't give away the story.)

Needless to say, The Claverings is more than a love story, in classic Trollope fashion. At its most profound, it's a difficult soul-searching of what matters most in life, and how best to get there. And, unlike many of Trollope's other works, he doesn't leave a clear safety net under his characters - you really aren't sure things are going to work out, after all.

I would heartily recommend this to anyone who is either an old Trollope pro or someone wanting to get a taste of Trollope for the first time. Perhaps you, like me, will find the world of Trollope to be rich and worthy of a year or two of your free time.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A Male, Victorian Version of Austen's Emma 19 janvier 2005
Par Catherine Decker - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
If you enjoy seeing good, but fundamentally human and weak, characters involve themselves in rather funny, socially embarrassing positions, this is a great novel for you. I'm too feminist to rate this novel a five-Trollope's accurate portrayal of the vulnerable position of women in Victorian society unsettled me. There is no powerful, outrageous woman figure like Mrs. Proudie of "Barchester Towers"-Mrs. Proudie does get a one-line mention in the novel, however! There are some wonderful minor characters here-Archie, Sophie, and Boodles are wickedly fun. If you are a Trollope addict not yet familiar with this novel, I'd say this is a sort of happy "Small House at Allington." If you are familiar with Rousseau, you will recognize the main character Julie is Trollope's variation on "Julie ou La Nouvelle Heloise" sans the premarital or adulterous sex. If all this is mumbo-jumbo to you, the book is a wonderful depiction of Victorian life featuring a love triangle.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A MUST FOR TROLLOPE FANS 30 juillet 2001
Par LINDA LEVEN - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
IF YOU ARE A FAN OF ANTHONY TROLLOPE, DO NOT OVERLOOK "THE CLAVERINGS".
"THE CLAVERINGS" MAIN PLOT CONCERNS A YOUNG WOMAN WHO GIVES UP THE MAN SHE LOVES - AND WHO LOVES HER - TO MARRY AN OLD, VERY RICH, UPPER CLASS GENTLEMAN. THE MARRIAGE IS A MISERABLE FAILURE, BUT LUCKILY THE OLD GENTLEMAN DIES, LEAVING ALL OF HIS FORTUNE AND PROPERTY TO HIS YOUNG WIFE. IN THIS MARRIAGE, THE WIFE'S REPUTATION IS ALSO SULLIED BY RUMORS THAT SHE IS HAVING AN AFFAIR WITH ANOTHER MAN.
WHEN THE YOUNG WOMAN FINDS HERSELF A WEALTHY WIDOW, SHE DISCOVERS THAT SHE IS UNABLE TO ENJOY HER WEALTH AND TITLE DUE TO THE SLANDEROUS RUMORS THAT BESMIRCH HER CHARACTER. HER WEALTH BRINGS HER NO JOY AS SHE IS ALONE AND SOCIALLY RUINED. SHE THUS BEGINS A CAMPAIGN TO WIN BACK HER FIRST LOVE WHOM SHE WISHES TO SHOWER WITH HER RICHES.PERHAPS THEN SHE WILL FIND HAPPINESS AND RESTORE HER TARNISHED REPUTATION.
IN THE MEANTIME, HER YOUNG MAN WHO TRULY LOVED HER HAS BECOME ENGAGED TO ANOTHER FAR LESS HANDSOME AND QUITE POOR WOMAN.
THE MAIN ACTION OF THE BOOK REVOLVES AROUND THE RELATIONSHIP THAT DEVELOPS BETWEEN THE ENGAGED YOUNG MAN WHO CANNOT TELL HIS PAST LOVE THAT HE IS NOW ENGAGED, AND THE NEWLY WIDOWED WOMEN WHO IS UNAWARE OF HIS ENGAGEMENT AND ATTEMPTING TO WIN HIM BACK.
AS IN ALL OF TROLLOPE'S BOOKS, THERE ARE MANY SIDE PLOTS THAT ARE EQUALLY AS PSYCHOLOGICALLY INTERESTING.
ANTHONY TROLLOP DELVES INTO THE PSYCHOLOGY OF ALL HIS CHARACTERS. IT IS NOT AN 'ACTION' BOOK BUT A STUDY OF LOVE AND GREED AND THEIR CONSEQUENCES.
I IMMENSELY ENJOYED THIS BOOK.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Much humor to enjoy in The Claverings 16 mars 2013
Par Russell Fanelli - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
The Claverings, published in 1867, is the thirteenth novel by the great Victorian writer Anthony Trollope. The reader must pay close attention to the opening chapter, in which the young and beautiful Julia Brabazon jilts Harry Clavering, a handsome and intelligent young man just beginning his career after a remarkable success at Oxford. Julia tells Harry that she gives him up for wealth and a title, which she prefers over the poverty she thinks she will endure as Harry's wife. Everything important that follows in the novel proceeds from this choice, which turns out to be disastrous for Julia. Her husband, Lord Ongar, is a villain who mistreats her, plots to ruin her reputation, and then dies, leaving Julia wealthy and titled, but truly miserable and alone.

While Julia was suffering humiliation and abuse, Harry had started his career as a civil engineer and had fallen in love and proposed marriage to Florence Burton, one of Trollope's truly good and innocent female characters. Unfortunately for Florence, Julia returns from Italy and begins a new romance with Harry, a mistake he will live to regret. This love triangle is the heart and soul of The Claverings and is interesting, but not my reason for recommending this novel.

The minor cast of characters, particularly the eccentric and villainous Sophie Gordeloupe, friend and sometimes confidant of Julia, are truly delightful and at times laugh out loud funny. For example, in one scene Sophie wheedles money from Archie Clavering, Harry's cousin, who wants to use Sophie to help him marry Julia. Later Captain Boodle goes to Sophie to try to get the better of Sophie for his friend Archie. Sophie is too clever for both of these inept and foolish men and the scenes where she bests them are truly delightful. I have read nineteen of Trollope's novels and none of them have the eccentricity and humor of The Claverings. Perhaps the closest we can come to match Sophie for villainous behavior is the great Mrs. Proudie of Barchester Towers.

Part of Trollope's genius in Claverings was to include humor to balance the desperation of Julia, Harry, and Florence, which comprises the main action and suspense of the novel. Who will Harry choose? The patient reader must wait until the very end of the story for this question to be answered.

I enjoyed reading The Claverings, especially for its humor. It is an early novel of Trollope and shows us just what we can expect in his later work. He is a shrewd observer of people. His characters come to life for us and they are as real to us as our own friends and neighbors. He shares his insights and observations about the human condition with us, his readers, as if he himself were our old friend and confidant. Trollope does not go out of style. Like Jane Austen, he continues to find an audience in each new generation. Those new to Trollope will find The Claverings to be a good example of the work of the master. Those who know and love Trollope will find in this novel one more reason to extol the virtues of this master of Victorian literature.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Usual Trollope the Great 31 janvier 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Since its first appearance in 1867, this novel has been acclaimed as one of Trollope's most successful portrayals of mid-Victorian life. A novel of conflicting choices in love, often accounted one of Trollope's best, but I still prefer the wicked THE EUSTACE DIAMONDS.
