The first of Anthony Trollope’s works to receive widespread popular and critical acclaim, The Warden follows the career of Septimus Harding, the warden of an almshouse — an early form of subsidized housing for the poor — who is forced to adapt to looming social changes when a zealous young reformer comes on the scene. Confusion, crossed wires, and much hilarity ensue. A must-read for fans of witty social satire.
