Inhaltsangabe zu „Eustace Diamonds“ von Anthony Trollope

Anthony Trollope's celebrated Parliamentary novels, of which The Eustace Diamonds (1873) is the third and most famous, are at once unfailingly amusing social comedies, melodramas of greed and deception, and precise nature studies of the political animal in its mid-Victorian habitat. With its purloined jewels, its conniving, resilient, mercenary heroine, and its partiality for the human spectacle in all its complexity, The Eustace Diamonds is a splendid example of Trollope's art at its most assured. The Eustace Diamonds is a novel by Anthony Trollope, first published in 1871 as a serial in the Fortnightly Review. It is the third in The Pallisers series of novels. In this novel, the characters of Plantagenet Palliser and his wife, Lady Glencora, are in the background. The central plot concerns Lizzie Greystock, a fortune-hunter who marries Sir Florian Eustace and is soon left a wealthy widow. The diamonds of the book's title are a necklace, a Eustace family heirloom. Lizzie attempts to hold on to them, while searching for another suitable husband. After falling out with a potential suitor, Lord Fawn, over the diamonds, she marries the disreputable Mr Emilius, a foreign clergyman who is already married. Her hopes of retaining the Eustace diamonds are eventually dashed.

Glück besteht aus Buchstaben

Letztlich eher enttäuschend. Die Autobiographie nahm mehr Raum ein als die Bücher. Außerdem ein paar Taktlosigkeiten.
