The Irish Member
The Palliser Novels: Book #2
Narrated by Simon Vance / 22 hours 32 minutes
Phineas Finn is an Irish MPA who is climbing the political ladder, largely through the assistance of his string of lovers. The questions he is forced to ask himself about honesty, independence, and parliamentary democracy are questions still asked today. Phineas Finn is the second of Anthony Trollope's six Palliser novels, which together comprise a large, coherent composition that captures the fashions, manners, and politics of two decades of society in the high Victorian period. Trollope's unrivaled understanding of the institutions of mid-Victorian England and his sympathetic vision of human fallibility are informed by an unobtrusive irony that shines in these stories.
