The Two Heroines of Plumplington

Anthony Trollope

Book Overview: 

In the small English Town of Plumplington the daughter of a brewer and that of a banker each has selected her future husband contrary to the wishes of her father. Both young men are regarded as not 'good enough', though each is, in fact, much like the respective father when at that age. The girls, with the support of various townspeople, endeavor to get their way. One refuses to wear the nice clothes her father so much admires her in, while the other takes to her bed and refuses to eat. The fathers, of course, give in, and ultimately agree to the happy ending.

Dentro de un e-book en inglés con relatos navideños de A. Trollope está este divertido relato corto en el que dos jóvenes amigas de distinto estrato social, se enamoran de dos hombres jóvenes, respetables, trabajadores y buenos muchachos, pero que según los padres de ambas muchachas, no son los sufi

This story is probably acceptable as a short story in the Christmas issue of a magazine but it is not Trollope at his best and it does not feel set in Barsetshire at all, as indicated by the creation of a substantial town not previously mentioned.

Anthony Trollope is best suited for this glorious week between Christmas and New Years. It's perfect fare for cozying up with a steaming cuppa as long as you don't expect the plot to canter and trot. Trollope's plots only amble.

I love Trollope's females. Two beloved daughters (not sisters) are thwa

Best considered as a comic short story, this doesn't lack Trollope's sharp observations of character, class and hypocrisy, but it is *very* slight.

Delightful collection of short stories. It is a shame the last one was so naff.

As Mr. Greenmantle says: "Two heroines of Plumpington ! It sounds like a vulgar farce.". A fun little read, with a few choice Trollopian morsels. It definitely does not deserve to be equated to The Last Chronicle of Barsetshire.
