The plot of "Doctor Thorne" (1858), the third novel in Anthony Trollope's Barsetshire series, is set in motion by a seduction, a murder, and an illegitimate birth, and carried forward in an intense struggle for privilege and position. That these potentially melodramatic elements never disturb Trollope's richly woven, classically balanced tapestry of provincial life is a continuing testament to his handsome, civil, endlessly entertaining art.
