5.0 étoiles sur 5 Trollope shines as portraitist, moralist, amiable cynic 2 septembre 1998
Par Erica - Publié sur
Ralph The Heir, written late in Antony Trollope's life, is not as well known as his Palliser or Barchester novels, and this is a great shame. To my mind his talents are on display here in all their mature glory; his penetrating observation of human motive and weakness, combined with a raucous, convaluted storyline and a wicked sense of humor. Trollope knows people through and through, and it is no small thing that he refuses here to make even his villain a monster. In true Trollope form, Ralph who is the heir (there are two Ralphs and two heirs) is in embarrased circumstances. Having spent a rather idle life waiting for his uncle to die so that he might inherit (and with the old squire hale at sixty, this will not likely happen soon), Ralph finds himself in debt up to his eyeballs...or perhaps his hand-tooled hunting boots. With a stable of hunters and a fierce riding breeches habit, Ralph must do something, but what? Just what Ralph does, and how it touches the whole pantheon within his circle (and a few decidedly outside it!) gently underlines Trollope's deep concerns for his time: just what is a gentleman? What, indeed, is nobility in man and woman? And how are we so often willfully blinkered by love, loyalty, ambition, and hate? There are several storylines in Ralph The Heir, and the author does not disappoint those who delight in watching him tie all these delicious tales together in almost Seinfeldian fashion. Parliament figures prominently and the election (or rather the attempt at an election) of a principal character is so marvelously portrayed, so wicked, it alone is worth the price of the book. Trollope is a gem. Gentle, kindly in his characters, he truly loves people and when he laughs at them, I rather think he is laughing also at himself. Enjoy this; it's one of Trollope's best.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Late Trollop 1 mai 2009
Par Harold Kaplan - Publié sur
The laws on entail prevent Squire Newton from leaving his estate to his illegitimate son Ralph. The rightful heir is the squire's nephew, also Ralph, a charming but callous young man whose only talent is accumulating debt. Can the squire circumvent the law and leave the property to Ralph the noble rather than to Ralph the wastrel? This is late Trollope and contains some of his best writing. The secondary characters are superb, especially Ontario Moggs, Friend of the Working Class, and Mr. Neefit, who is determined at almost any cost to see his daughter Polly a "lady". The political chapters are among Trollope's best writing, far superior to the politics described in his earlier Palliser novels. Much of the novel is a convincing portrait of empty-headed, time-wasting Ralph, who as Trollope points out is a rather odd choice for "hero". There is also a fascinating gallery of rogues with whom Ralphs hangs out. The problem with this novel is that the good, genteel heroines -- Patience, Clarissa, Mary-- are lifeless and boring. As Trollope says, men may act but women must "sit and wait". Unfortunately noble women sitting and thinking noble thoughts and waiting for something good to happen, makes for less than exciting reading. By contrast, Polly Neefit shows considerable good sense, courage, pluck, but she is a tradesman's daughter, not a lady and therefore need not be genteel. A great read, but move quickly through the dry patches.

I thought this book was just okay. I stuck with it because I am a Trollope fan and would like to eventually read all of his works. This Kindle book was free on in the classics section. Free sure beats the price of Trollope books if you can even find them.

I love anything by Trollope. I like to own the books, but my copy had tiny print, so reading it on the Kindle was a pleasure.

Typical Trollope story, not as good as some but not a bad read.
