Anthony Trollope was a prolific Victorian writer. Trollope's best-loved works were known as the Chronicles of Barsetshire, which center on the imaginary county of Basetshire. He wrote penetrating novels on political, social, and gender issues and conflicts. When Trollope returned to England after eighteen months in the colonies, he was horrified by the rampant immorality he found. Clerical life in Victorian England is humorously shown in this 1857 story about the appointment of a new bishop. The story relates the intrigue surrounding the appointment, as seen in the ploys and jealousies of the clergy and their wives.
