Summary:

Mr Marling, of Marling Hall, realises he will probably never be able to hold on to his wonderful old estate and pass it down to his children. The Second World War is bringing an end to so many things, but the Marlings carry on as best they can in the face of rationing and changed living conditions. Into their world erupt Geoffrey Harvey and his sister Frances, bombed out of their London home. Bohemian and sophisticated, they rent a local house and it is not long before they begin to have an effect on their neighbours. Geoffrey begins to court Lettice, the Marlings' older widowed daughter, but he finds he has rivals for her affections in her cousin David Lindsey and Captain Barclay. Observing everything and quietly keeping events on an even keel is the Marlings' old governess, Miss Bunting.

Ethnicity and Gender in the Barsetshire Novels of Angela Thirkell by Penelope Joan Fritzer

  • Language : English

Summary:

Angela Thirkell wrote more than 30 comic novels spanning the period from 1930 to 1960 in England. Beginning in 1933, the books are set in Barsetshire as extensions of the seven Barsetshire novels of Anthony Trollope. Her wit is sharp and pointed, and she covers a time of great stress for England. Fritzer's work offers a detailed consideration of two of the most significant themes in Thirkell's Barsetshire novels, gender and ethnicity. The book examines how Thirkell's characters convey their admiration for patriotism, hard work, and tradition, and yet function within a largely comical world. Thirkell repeatedly makes clear that England is best, with the foreigners appearing in her works nearly all caricatures. Because of renewed interest in Thirkell's works and the importance of gender and ethnicity in many contemporary debates, this book is an invaluable guide to her world.

Summary:

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.
