Book Description

The Kellys and the O'Kellys was Trollope's second novel, written when he was thirty-four. Like The Macdermots and Castle Richmond, it was the fruit of his experience as a postal official in Ireland. There is plenty of lovemaking, physical violence, sport, and whisky punch.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A great book for Trollope lovers 19 novembre 2012
Par J. Smiley - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Anthony Trollope wrote this book in Ireland, when he was working there for the English Post Office. It was his second book, and it shows that he knew how to write a social comedy from the beginning. The characters are beautifully drawn, and the dilemmas are, of course, utterly mundane and utterly dramatic. A piece of property goes to a plain but decent woman, which raises her value in the marriage market.Her brother resents her. Will he become violent, or is he just a hapless drunk? Another man, who has a large property, puts it in jeopardy by owning race horses--but his trainer is the wisest man he knows (which doesn't mean his horses always win). This is a jewel, written in Trollope's characteristic smooth but pointed style. No one in England was interested in the Irish when it came out (1848), and it sold about fifty copies. It has always been outshone by his later works. I believe he was thirty-two when he wrote it. But it is wise, entertaining and full of those sort of moral riddles we love Trollope for exploring.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of Trollope's great villains can be found in this novel. 6 août 2014
Par Russell Fanelli - Publié sur Amazon.com

The Kelly's and the O'Kelly's is the 23rd novel by Anthony Trollope I have read. I had just finished the Macdermots of Ballycloran, his first novel, written in 1847 and decided that I would read his second novel, The Kelly's... written in 1848. Both stories are set in Ireland where Trollope worked as a young man for the English Post Office.

What I think is most noteworthy about The Kelly's... is the villain, Barry Lynch. Of all the many novels of Trollope I have read, Barry is by far the most evil and despicable person he has created. From our very first introduction to Barry to the end of the novel, he is hated and despised by all who know him, and for good reason. He is a selfish, self-centered man who will lie, cheat, steal, and even do murder to get what he wants. No spoilers here - Trollope takes us aside early in his novel and describes Barry's character in some detail. We know what to expect and we are not disappointed. Just as the villain Uriah Heep in David Copperfield adds dramatic conflict to that wonderful novel by Charles Dickens, so does Barry Lynch energize the plot in The Kelly's and the O'Kelly's.

As mentioned earlier, the novel is set in Ireland and Trollope provides much local color as he tells the story of Martin Kelly and the woman he wants to marry, Anty Lynch, Barry's sister, and then Fanny Wyndham and her fiancé Lord Ballindine, Frank O'Kelly. Barry Lynch does everything possible to prevent the marriage of his sister Anty to Martin Kelly and Lord Cashel, Fanny's uncle, tries his best to keep Fanny from marrying Frank O'Kelly. Barry and Lord Cashel want Anty and Fanny's money for themselves.

The Kelly's and the O'Kelly's is typical of the many novels Trollope will write about love lost and won. What makes Trollope special and why I keep coming back for more is his ability to involve us in his story and make us care about his characters and what will happen to them. Trollope is a reader's best friend. He frequently takes us into his confidence and talks to us about his characters and their problems. He is a wise observer who is skilled in describing what he sees. As readers we enter the world he has created for us and experience the story as if we were there. To be able to lose ourselves for a time in a strange new world is certainly one of the joys of reading and few are able to make this possible better than the master, Anthony Trollope.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 and thus easy to read 14 décembre 2014

First off, this particular edition should be complimented for being generally well-formatted, and thus easy to read. Unlike some of the other "free" copies of Trollope, this version is remarkably clean in the formatting and generally free from typographic errors. Furthermore, the work has functional footnotes, which do a great job of explaining some of the more vague points to Trollope's phrases or historical references.

I'm not a professional literary critic, but this isn't one of Trollope's greatest works. It suffers partly from Trollope's attempts to put in "authentic" Irish dialogue. Think "Tom Sawyer" but with thicker accents. On a happy note, if the reader makes it through the first few chapters, Trollope (wisely) cuts down on the use of accents and tells most of the story in his usual style. The storyline itself is classic Trollope and most people will figure out the ending within the first few chapters, but when reading Trollope its all about the journey and not the destination. The reader should also be warned that, at least in this book, the author presents a poor picture of the Irish in general. The "locals" are often described as dirty, uneducated, lazy, drunk, and violent. From his high pillar of English superiority, he does sometimes highlight the mercy and kindness of the locals as well and might even throw the Catholics a few compliments, but for the most part this book avoids the peasants and gives attention to the superior English transplants. If you have strong connections to your Irish roots, you might want to skip this book and dip into a different part of the Trollope collection.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A wonderful escape from today's immorality 10 mars 2014
Par Diana G. Winslow - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I love Anthony Trollope.Although I realize that Britain of the 1800's was not always as good and honorable as he protrays it to be, but compared to the world we live in today, it's wonderful. It's an escape you never want to come back from. --of course to live you'd have to be a WEATHY Brit of the day!
