Home Anthony Trollope Castle Richmond. Castle richmond, . 1. Ah, yes, that was at Castle Richmond; was it not? Well, you havedone the best thing that a man can do; you have come home to yourwife and family now that you are ill and require their attendance. Mr. Mollett looked up at him with a countenance full of unutterablewoe and weakness.

Home Anthony Trollope Castle Richmond. I need hardly explain to a discerning public that Mr. Matthew Mollettwas the gentleman who made that momentous call at Castle Richmond,and flurried all that household. 4. Drat it!" said Mrs. Jones to herself on that day, as soon as shehad regained the solitude of her own private apartment, after havingtaken a long look at Mr. Mollett in the hall. He spent one night in Dublin, and then went on, so thathe might arrive at Castle Richmond after dark. 3. In his present mood hedreaded to be seen returning, even by his own people about the place. At Buttevant he was met by his own car and by Richard, as he haddesired; but he found that he was utterly frustrated as to thatmethod of seating himself in his vehicle which he had promised tohimself.

Thomas Anthony Trollope, Anthony's father, was a barrister. On his return, Trollope published a book, Australia and New Zealand (1873). Though a clever and well-educated man and a Fellow of New College, Oxford, he failed at the Bar due to his bad temper. Trollope then devised the plot of Framley Parsonage, setting it near Barchester so that he could make use of characters from the Barsetshire novels.

I consider Castle Richmond to be representative of Trollope's work. I enjoyed it and recommend it without resvervation either in book form or on Kindle.

Castle Richmond book. A contemporary of Charles Dickens, this book by Anthony Trollope is a much more enjoyable read than any Dickens I've read. I highly recommend it. Two cousins - Owen and Herbert - in love with Clara.

LibriVox recording of Castle Richmond by Anthony Trollope. Read in English by Simon Evers. Set against the background of the Irish famine in the 1840’s, the novel tells of the tangled relationships between Clara Desmond, Herbert Fitzgerald and his cousin Owen Fitzgerald. Clara – whose previously ‘great’ family is almost bankrupt – is initially attracted to Owen, but whose dissolute lifestyle is a handicap. The matter is further complicated by the fact that Lady Desmond, Clara’s mother, is in love with Owen. Meanwhile, Herbert supplants Owen in Clara’s affections.

Castle Richmond is about the fortunes and relationships of two families of the Irish aristocracy, set against the harrowing background of the Great Famine. Sir Thomas Fitzgerald is being blackmailed by two disreputable men over the question of his children's legitimacy.

Trollope fans, don't miss this one, I feel that's it's one of his very best. I'll never understand why Trollope is not as well known as other authors. The man had such an adept understanding of human nature. As always, there is a galloping good run plot-wise, well-drawn characters, and much to ponder.

In 1841, as a young man of twenty-six, AnthonyTrollope moved to Ireland to take up the position of postal clerk. After ten years and nine novels written, he returned to England as a successful novelist. Anthony Trollope had already written three novels in the popular Chronicles of Barsetshire series, The Warden, Barchester Towers, and Dr. Thorne, when he wrote Castle Richmond. Unlike his popular Barsetshire novels set in England, Trollope decided to write a story about Ireland at the time of The Great Famine, which began in Ireland in 1845.

Some of his best writing describes the plight of the Irish who lost everything, including their lives, when the potato crop on which they chiefly lived failed year after year. One of the main characters in the novel, Herbert Fitzgerald of Castle Richmond, does all he can to help his neighbors, but is largely unsuccessful. That the landowners like Fitzgerald were able to do so little to prevent mass starvation, illness, and emigration speaks volumes about the indifference and incompetence of the English lawmakers who watched the disaster in Ireland unfold and did little to stop it from destroying a large part of the Irish population.

With the famine in the background, we watch the family problems of the Fitzgeralds and Desmonds, two landed and important families in Ireland. It comes to light that Herbert Fitzgerald may be illegitimate and the title to Castle Richmond may really belong to his poor cousin Owen Fitzgerald. Sorting out this problem takes up much of the novel. To complicate matters, both Herbert and Owen have fallen in love with and proposed marriage to Lady Clara Desmond. Lady Clara's mother wants her daughter married to the true heir of Castle Richmond and adjoining lands and property and we readers must wait until the end of the story to find out what happens to the Fitzgerald cousins and Lady Clara.

It is difficult for the reader to take seriously the problems of the Fitzgeralds when so many Irish people around them are struggling for survival. When Trollope takes us aside and talks to us about The Famine, he seems sincere in his concern for the Irish struggling for survival, but it is the concern of the landed English gentry who thought that creating workhouses and feeding the people corn based gruel satisfied their responsibility to care for a people whose lands they had stolen and whose freedoms they had taken.

The reader of this review might find it interesting to go to YouTube and listen to Sinead O'Connor sing her song Famine, or better yet, watch the film version of John B. Keane's play, The Field, much of which can also be found on YouTube.

Let there be no mistake; Anthony Trollope is one of my favorite authors. I have read fifteen of his novels and will certainly read more. I consider Castle Richmond to be representative of Trollope's work. I enjoyed it and recommend it without resvervation either in book form or on Kindle. Comment | Permalink

What can I say other than when I want to read a soap opera I turn to Trollope. All his characters are full dimensional except for sex. None of his characters ever have sex though they are deeply in love. There's also the inheritance and who shall get it. There's always an extremely virtuous lady in distress. There is the appearance many times of the Jew-broker, the Jewish industrialist turning England into employers and workers with the neuvo riche taking the place in society of the noble gentlemen with incomes from their pitiful but loyal tenants and riding the foxhunts to actually trying to find another income to support their elegant attire and habits. This one is typical. But once you start you can't put it down till the abrupt end when he ties everything together.

Other readers have enjoyed this novel but it rather left me cold. You could do worse, but overall this story although competent feels forced and plot driven to me. It lacked humor, was not wholly credible, and did not compel attention. The insights and vignettes about the famine are harrowing, but seem to run in parallel as a mere coincidence to the story of the named characters, who could well have been set in another place or decade.

Quite possibly my favorite of the many Trollope novels I have read. I was enthralled from the beginning and unable at any time to predict the outcome. Excellently drawn characters as usual, but also an interesting and riveting plot. Trollope waxes a little too long in his descriptions of the Irish potato famine, but at least it makes an interesting backdrop for his novel. I thoroughly enjoyed this one, beginning to end.

YET ONCE MORE AN ENTHRALLING STORY OF FAMILY TIES AND VESTED INTERESTS WHICH COULD AND WOULD HAVE HAD MOST TRAGIC EFFECTS. AS WITH ALL OTHER WORKS BY TROLLOPE, I VERITABLY COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN. THE STORY IS SO FOREIGN TO US, THE COMMON HONEST FOLK WHO INHABIT THIS PLANET NOW, THAT THAT WHICH THESE PRECIOUSLY DATED CHARACTERS SAY AND FEEL IS A TRUE SOURCE OF AWE AND WONDER. WELCOME BE THEY WHO BRING THOSE FAR GONE TIMES BACK TO US SO VIVIDLY, THUS ENGAGING US INEXTRICABLY WITH THEIR OWN FATE. DON'T MISS THIS ONE CASTLE TALE!!!

A powerful, powerful book! The Irish potato famine in a major player in this story, very interesting and very moving, and the main characters are very interesting and very moving as well, especially Owen Fitzgerald, a character I will never forget. This book stirred me emotionally as no other Trollope book has, and I've read many of them and loved many of them. But this one is in a class of its own. Incidentally, the father-and-son Mollett team provides some delicious humor to give the reader a break from the strong emotion produced by the telling of the potato famine. The portraits of Irish servants were wonderfully rendered--I could see and hear them, and I loved them.

I could not predict exactly where Trollope was going with this. Character development is interesting. Characters' personalities are fairly realistic. Trollope's sly satire is always satisfying.
