The fourth work of Trollope's "Chronicles of Barsetshire" series, this novel primarily follows the young curate Mark Robarts, newly arrived in Framley thanks to the living provided for by Lady Lufton. The ambitious if naive Robarts looks to advance his career by mingling with the higher class society around him, which leads to a test of his traditionally Victorian values as a gentleman. While Robarts is being compromised and even being brought to the edge of a social downfall, the love of his sister Lucy is challenged by the disapproving mother of Lord Lufton. Amidst this impressive description of English life in the 1800s, Trollope tells this story with consideration and his characteristically satiric humor, gaining for "Framley Parsonage" the general acknowledgement as his most popular work.
