5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of Trollope's best 4 janvier 2000
Par Louise Dana - Publié sur
Browsing in a bookstore, I read a blurb of this book that told every secret twist of its plot. I was enraged, but read 'Cousin Henry' anyway. It was superb, and illustrates perfectly Trollope's own philosophy, given in 'Barchester Towers,' that a good book will not suffer even from the reader knowing what happens. 'Cousin Henry' has other, and considerable, merits, than suspensefulness--although it is suspenseful. It has been called the most psychologically probing of Trollope's works; indeed, Trollope himself thought it to be so, and was very proud of it. The plot, in brief, and without giving anything away, is this: Cousin Henry is the heir of the Squire of Llanfeare--according to the will everyone knows about. But Henry knows of another, later, will, that disinherits him. Most of the book concerns Henry's agonizing over whether or not to make this will public. There is also another plot thread, concerning the Squire's daughter, Isabel, who can only marry if her husband is willing to take her last name (shades of 'Cecilia'). I'll say it again: one of Trollope's best.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good, but hardly his best 21 janvier 2009
Par Judith C. Kinney - Publié sur
I love Trollope. He is my favorite nineteenth-century British writer. His style suits me down to the ground. I'd like anything he's written. I have twenty of his books lined up on a shelf. When I want a great treat, I pull one down and read it.

I got several chuckles out of poor Cousin Henry vacillating between his desire to do right and his desire to do wrong. Still, I don't think anyone besides the other reviewer here would call COUSIN HENRY Trollope's best book.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Hopefully not his best 18 mars 2010

I decided to read Anthony Trollop's "Cousin Henry" after reading the two available reviews. Although I enjoy nineteenth century British fiction, I have to confess I've never read anything by Trollop. The situation is a common one in this genre: Henry is supposed to inherit his uncle's property through entitlement, not because he is loved, admired or respected. Quite the contrary - he is none of those things and this makes up the bulk of the novel. Will Henry live up to, or overcome, his despicable character? While it is well-written, the author does tend to go over Henry's internal conflict again and again and again. Hopefully it's not his best; I look forward to trying something else by him.

I have read about half of Trollope's works, and Cousin Henry is in the middle: not as well written as the Barchester Chronicles, The Palliser novels, or Phineas Finn, but still enjoyable. (I even read his worst to the end and skim the long letters and sermons in his best. His writing can be ponderous, but I'm retired.) Cousin Henry is representative of Trollope's typical plot lines of money, class, woman's status, greed, love, marriage, religion. Cousin Henry's specific plot line involves an elderly gentleman's will: did he write a final will to the financially needy, deserving niece or to the detached male heir, Cousin Henry?) This novel also reminded me of Poe's The Tell-Tale Heart with fear and guilt. I enjoy Trollope's psychological insights into human nature because his character assessments seem honest (and contemporary, actually.) His best writing can't compare to Jane Austen, but his understanding of human nature at his best reminds me of Austen.

My first Trollope book - loved it. Exciting and wonderfully engaging.
It is a powerful psychological story of a weak man.
