Cover of: Prime Minister | Anthony Trollope

About the Book

The first plot records the clash between the Duke of Omnium, now prime minister of a coalition government, and his meddlesome wife, Lady Glencora. Whose well-intended maneuverings result in embarrassment for the Duke's office. The second plot tells the scheming of Ferdinand Lopez, a ruthless social climber who wins the support of Lady Glencora--but not her husband--for an election campaign. The straightforwardness of the structure allows Trollope to plan the vivid scenes of intensity and character conflict. The incidents of The Prime Minister are planned with a brilliant astuteness. Anyone who is interested in Victorian history and politics will find the novel enchanting.
