Description

Since its first appearance in 1870, this has been regarded as one of Trollope's finest short novels. It is the tale of a conscientious father vacillating between a desire to marry his daughter to a cousin destined to inherit the family title, and his fear that the cousin, reportedly a scheming wastrel, is unworthy of her. Sir Harry Hotspur has been called Trollope's saddest story, and at the same time is the superlative exception to the rule that Trollope's long, comfortable books are his best. This book is intended for general readers, students and teachers of Victorian literature.show more
