English Country Life in the Barsetshire Novels of Angela Thirkell


This, the first full-length study of Angela Thirkell's Barsetshire series, shows the popular novelist to have greater scope and more serious intentions than many of her reviewers recognized. Her chronicles of rural English society, set in Trollope's mythical county, present a solid case for traditional middle-class values, including an emphasis on topics of current interest like preservation of the environment and loyalty to family, county, and country.
