The title of the book might lead you to refrain, since it implies that the story is about a country vicar. One wonders how exciting that might be? However, this book is probably one of Trollope's most suspenseful and well-rounded novels. You have a romance, an unrequited romance, and a young woman at the heart of it whose lack of fortune could lead her astray. Mary Lowther, visiting the vicar and her friend, his wife, receives a marriage proposal from Harry Gilmore, the local squire, who at the encouragement of the vicar, has fallen desperately in love with Mary. Mary has offered no encouragement, and despite the pressure of the vicar and his wife to accept the marriage offer, refuses. Once at home, she falls in love with a visiting relation, but because he is penniless, cannot marry him. Thus she is tossed about on the tides of marital opportunities, continually pressured by friends and family to turn to Harry Gilmore. This portion of the story is rather like a "one woman stands against the world" scene, and it is intriguing, frustrating, and ultimately inspiring as Mary finds her strength not just in love but in herself. If romance doesn't interest you, Trollope has thrown in a second storyline, one unusual in his books. A murder occurs, and the vicar sets about attempting to solve it because the suspect -- even he suspects him -- is a young man from his neighborhood who has been skirting the law and morality for some time. Add to that, we have the character of the beautiful Carry Brattle, seduced by a man outside of wedlock and then tossed out of her home by her insulted father, forced to turn to prostitution in order to eat and find shelter. Her trials and her reform, including her family's eventual forgiveness of her sins, is at once indicative of the harsh lives imposed upon women in Trollope's era and a hope for a future where women are not viewed as the property of men but as persons in their own right. Finally, the vicar does have his own story as he insults a nobleman in his parish and is thereby made an enemy, the nobleman going so far as to build a new church right up against the vicar's property as an insult to the vicar's faith and effectiveness as a man of religion. How this resolves itself is a lark! The story is exciting, and each storyline is so well intertwined that the switch from one to the other as the book progresses is smooth. Never a dull moment in this one, you'll find that from the first page, you cannot put the book down.

HASH(0x933014d4) étoiles sur 5 Insightful, realistic, a pleasure to read 30 août 2005
Par Constant Weeder - Publié sur

Other reviewers have discussed the plot and the characters of this wonderful mid-Victorian novel; I would rather speculate about what makes the author so much a favorite of mine. Trollope led a jumbling life, traveling constantly during his career as a postal inspector in Ireland, and throughout the world thereafter. He started life as a poor boy suffering hazing at a rich boy's school, was defeated later in a run for Parliament, and ended up a loud, red-faced, hale fellow at clubs. But something developed in his character that gave him remarkable insight into both the upper and lower class mental sets of the English mind of that period. The result is that he can marvelously reproduce both the speech and the thought patterns of his men and women characters as they wrestle with problems they encounter in everyday ethical situations, both ordinary and extraordinary. Thus, we are presented with the dilemmas of a puzzled betrothed young woman, a "fallen" woman, a youth suspected of murder, an old man torn by grief, a man in the throes of unrequited love, and a fight between a country parson and a lord. Everything is explained and I found myself murmuring, "Of course. They would think that, say that, do that." Unlike Dickens, he doesn't deal in grotesques. Unlike Thackeray, he doesn't mock his creations. The novel is therefore a perfect example of the Realist school of fiction writing as well as a fine read. It doesn't cut as deeply as "The Way We Live Now," which could be a treatise on the "greed is good" generations of our recent past, nor does it have the spellbinding comedy-tragedy of the Barsetshire series, nor the political intricacies of the Palliser Series of his novels, but Trollope doesn't disappoint the attentive reader who will suspend "presentism" type judgments about the role of women or the church in the 19th century or the fact that defendants in a criminal trial could not testify. That was then. He still speaks to us now, and speaks quite clearly.

HASH(0x92ee8930) étoiles sur 5 One of the master's masterpieces 19 octobre 2007
Par james A. Means - Publié sur
Format: Broché
As a professor of literature, and as a "common reader," I revere Tolstoy above all other novelists I have read, but I would place Trollope just below him, in company with Dickens, Balzac, Austen, and Lawrence. It did not surprize me much to learn, while reading a biography of Tolstoy,that he had a great admiration for Trollope's work. Both these men share, in my opinion, an almost Olympian view of the human beings they have created. I sometimes think these men are writers for grown-ups because they do not deal in villains. We see their characters, as they do, as from a great height, so that Trollope's Crosbie, or Tolstoy's Vronsky demand from us almost as much compassion as those whom they injure. I guess I could sum up why I respect Trollope so: he is the master of ordinary life, and --like Tolstoy--he makes it extraordinary. The clerical hero of "The Vicar of Bullhampton" is one of the extraordinary, ordinary men. You will remember him.

HASH(0x92e71bac) étoiles sur 5 The Vicar of Bullhampton 3 décembre 2010
Par Trish - Publié sur

My comment on this edition has to do with its print format. It is a literal facsimile of an original edition (Classic Reprint), with the attendant difficulties that appertain to low-tech typesetting: an "e" often looks like an "o" ("meekly" can look like "mookly"; a single word may be distorted or under-inked, and therefore illegible. Context assists in deciphering, and one does get used to the type style, but it does slow one's progress.

It is worth the extra effort to meet the usual fine cast of Trollopian characters, including some well-wrought portraits of working-class folk, and all our favorite societal demarcations and foibles of the Victorian upper classes. But if you are willing to forego the pleasure of reading a period publication in favor of easy-to-read modern print, you will be better served by another edition of this excellent novel.

HASH(0x9317b594) étoiles sur 5 Almost a murder mystery 11 décembre 2015
Par Meredith/Susan - Publié sur
Format: Broché
The Reverend Frank Fenwick, vicar of Bullhampton, is a parson who never runs away from a fight. He is the owner of a life preserver, which he knows how to use, and carries on a long-standing quarrel with the Post Office because they don't deliver his mail before breakfast. He is not afraid of the ruffians he finds lurking in his garden in the middle of the night, plotting theft of his fruit, or something much worse. He is certainly not afraid of the Marquess of Trowbridge, who owns two thirds of the parish of Bullhampton and fancies himself the ruler of it all. Mr. Fenwick, with his egalitarian views, is a dangerous influence among his tenantry, according to the Marquess, setting a bad example by his lack of respect for authority. The Marquess plots his revenge against the vicar for his insolence in a way that only a wealthy landowner would be able to contemplate. The vicar, to his credit, is the stalwart champion of the poor and the sinners of his parish, defending the miller's son Tom Brattle, a murder suspect to some, as well as the miller's disgraced daughter, Carry Brattle, whose family will not even speak her name.

Country squire Harry Gilmore, owner of the remaining third of the parish, is the vicar's best friend and ally against the Marquess. He is in love with Mary Lowther, the vicar's house guest and Mrs. Fenwick's best friend. To the vicar and his wife, nothing could be more perfect than a marriage between their two friends, but Mary insists she can never marry Harry because she does not love him. She regrets disappointing the Fenwicks, but privately wonders if she will ever love any man enough to marry. This is before she gets to know her cousin Walter Marrable, a handsome soldier just returned from India.

Murders and murder trials figure in several Trollope novels, but this one may be the closest he ever came to writing a murder mystery. It begins with a murder and ends with a trial. Nothing focuses a community's attention like a brutal unsolved murder; everyone knows something of the victim or the suspects, and everyone has an opinion as to what really happened. Because of the prominence of the murder plot, the novel is as much about the village itself as about the individual characters. We get to know a lot about the Wiltshire village of Bullhampton, its topography, history, and sociology, as well as its relations with other villages and towns in the neighborhood. In this sense we are reminded of "The Last Chronicle of Barset" which also has a baffling mystery though no murder.

Mr. Fenwick is Trollope's favorite kind of clergyman: bold, impulsive, self-assured, and just a bit reckless. As usual there are plenty of other clergy characters, including two bachelor clerical uncles, the unassuming, practical, somewhat cynical Pastor John Marrable, who has a parish in a poor part of a nearby town, and the celebrated preacher and aesthete, the Reverend Henry Fitzackerley Chamberlaine, who lives "in clover" in his perfect house in the Salisbury close. Neither favors marriage as a way of life, for himself or, unless unavoidable, anyone else. We mustn't forget the Methodist minister Mr. Puddleham, the Marquess's toady and another of Mr. Fenwick's enemies, though Mr. Fenwick refuses to quarrel with any fellow clergyman.

Mary Lowther fits into a category of heroines that fascinated Trollope, the serious, thoughtful, deliberate young lady who almost loses her bearings when she must navigate her course between duty and love. His other heroine, Carry Brattle, the "fallen woman," is a much rarer type for Trollope, who was always careful to provide wholesome stories for younger readers. The plight of such women was always on his mind, however, since several similar characters make brief appearances in other novels, and his very first novel, "The Macdermots of Ballycloran," recounts the tragic fate of poor Feemy Macdermot. For Carry Brattle, however, he envisioned at least a partial redemption, and wrote a special preface explaining the importance of some degree of mercy for the weak. This may be the most moral of all Trollope novels, as the theme is entirely forgiveness, granted or denied.
