Sir Harry Hotspur

This is a novel about the death of the heart, perhaps the closest the author ever came to genuine tragedy; it is set mainly in the fells of Cumberland. After the death of his only son and heir, Sir Harry Hotspur finds that under the laws of primogeniture his title will go to a distant, worthless relative, George.

Sir Harry wants to leave his fortune and ancestral home to his daughter Emily, who is wooed by the feckless George to whom she is merely a pawn; whilst considering herself the only woman capable of ‘saving’ her suitor, she unwittingly falls in love with him. Trollope wrote that he had in mind ‘the telling of some pathetic incident in life’, and Sir Harry Hotspur is a tragedy told in miniature. Emily Hotspur is one of the most affecting characters, and the author retains a small sharp surprise for the closing pages.
