Summary

The Prime Minister is the fifth in Trollope's series of six Palliser novels. With Phineas' difficulties resolved, Trollope introduces new characters. A respectable young girl forsakes the man her family had always intended her to marry when she falls in love with a man of foreign extraction and an unknown family. He has a gentleman's education and manners, but his family background and financial means are mysterious. Is he really a gentleman? Meanwhile, Plantagenet Palliser becomes Prime Minister of a shaky coalition government, and Glencora and Madame Goessler are busy with the ensuing social obligations.

Reviews

Frances Hsueh

- The Prime Minister

Were it not for Mr. Nicholas Clifford's fine reading, this book certainly may be one of the less enticing among the Palliser novels. His calm and soft tone brought a special flavor to the whole story.
