Mr Harding (the warden) is a compassionate character who would never think to do anyone harm in any way. He finds himself caught up in a controversial storm that feels like the media hangings of today. Harding becomes involved in public frenzy stirred up by the man who is soon to marry one of his daughters.

The significance of The Warden in Trollope’s career is that it was the first of his novels to bring these twin impulses fully into play.

Published by the Penguin Group. The significance of The Warden in Trollope’s career is that it was the first of his novels to bring these twin impulses fully into play. Here one can see the beginning of his inquiry into the Church as an institution, and in Archdeacon Grantly the first stirrings of the comedy that lies in the contrast between the worldly man and the unworldly calling, both to be much more fully developed in Barchester Towers (1857).

But Trollope uses this specific case to explore and illuminate the universal complexities of human motivation and social morality. The book centers on the character of Mr. Harding, a clergyman of great personal integrity, whose charitable income far exceeds the purpose for which it was intended. Young John Bold turns his reforming zeal to exposing what he considers to be an abuse of privilege, despite being in love with Mr. Harding's daughter Eleanor.

This is the first of Anthony Trollope's "Chronicles of Barsetshire" novels, and his first popularly successful novel. The basic plot is that the Warden, Mr. Harding, has 1) a sinecure church position that pays him 800 pounds a year; 2) a reform-minded friend who's trying to abolish church sinecures; 3) a daughter who wants to marry the reform-minded friend; and 4) an existing son-in-law of an Archdeacon who takes defending the Rights of the Church very, very seriously.

If you like Jane Austen novels there's a good chance you'll like this, as the basic plots -- church livings, the marriage prospects of 19th-centry british gentry -- are fairly similar. Trollope's prose here is fairly light and clear, and if not quite as sharply witty as Austen's, no one else's prose is either. Trollope does spill a great deal of ink on lengthy asides to the reader, some of which paint interesting pictures of contemporary British culture and some of which modern readers may find *amazingly* skippable.

Overall, this one's a lightly pleasant example of precisely the sort of intelligent, Victorian parlor romance it's trying to be. If you like this, the next volume in sequence is Barchester Towers; it's a bit more comically satirical, somewhere in between this and P.G. Wodehouse, but almost certainly something you'll enjoy if you liked this one.

This book is the first of six novels in the Barsetshire series of novels written by Trollope in the 1870s. Trollope is considered to be one of the best authors of Britain's Victorian age. All six volumes are very entertaining reads. These volumes are beautifully produced by Oxford University Press in their World Classics series. Why I choose the title for the review of this book is that this series is a presentation of England at the time it was written. The characters feel they lived in the best of all possible worlds-that the British Empire would rule the world forever and they were the luchiest people ever to be born when and where they were. They are close enough to us for the modern reader to reconise as us. When we read these volumes we see many things wrong with their society. I have the feeling that when people who live 120 years in the future look back they will see us and our society the same way we look back on the characters in these books. You will enjoy these books if you read them-hopefully they will make you think of matters we seldom think of.

I bought this after reading an article in The New Yorker about a burgeoning revival of interest in Anthony Trollope. I selected "The Warden" for rather shameful reasons: (a) it was short; and (b) it was inexpensive. I enjoyed it more than I thought I would. The prose is definitely mannered: it is clearly a product of its era; and mild intrigue within the Church of England is not terribly gripping. However it's a nice period piece, and Trollope does get off a few "good ones", within the context of his time and place. The background is interesting - the politics and economics of caring for the aged poor in 19th century English villages. Quite a nice evening's reading.
Very Old Chap
I have seen references to Anthony Trollope from time to time for decades, but didn't realise that he was a novelist; I thought he was an essayist. I like The Warden and I like Mr. Harding, the Warden. Trollope's characters seem very real to me. Mr. Harding has flaws, perhaps too willing to float through his life accepting what he is given, but heroically follows his conscience when it matters.
The Kindle version of this book has no problems that I notice. I am now reading the second book in the series.

In the 15th century, Hiram's Hospital was established as a perpetual charitable home for 12 poor old men, each being replaced at his death. Over the years the income from the property of the estate has increased to the point where the warden of the hospital enjoys a substantial salary.
The Rev. Septimus Harding (the Warden), kind, gentle, and conscientious, loves his comfortable position and is loved by the old men under his care - until his life is disrupted by a REFORMER, in the person of young John Bold, who questions the ample income of the warden, while the old men still receive only pennies a day. Bold brings in a solicitor and interests the newspaper The Jupiter (obviously the London Times), which makes the issue a national debate.
Although the church stands behind the warden with all its influence, the gentle Mr. Harding himself begins to doubt the propriety of his position. The matter becomes further complicated when Bold and Harding's daughter Eleanor fall in love.
This first of the six Barsetshire novels is by far the shortest and concentrates almost exclusively on the main plot. (In fact, Trollope inserts a criticism of the long serial novels of the day, although he later adopted that same mode.) "The Warden" is not so rich in detail or in the extensive cultural ambience of the later novels, but it is an excellent introduction to this deservedly acclaimed series. It introduces many vivid characters who grow and develop delightfully in the later novels.
