Trollope would’ve struggled with Barchester Towers.
Bishop dies and his son isn’t promoted from Archdeacon. Mrs Proudie, the new Archbishop’s wife, attempts to rule the diocese, competing with his Chaplain Mr Slope. Both take a low-church stance against the high church Archdeacon.
The Archdeacon mistakenly believes his sister-in-law, Eleanor, is in love with Slope but she refuses both his proposal and that of the ne’er-do-well Bertie. Instead she marries Arabin, the Archdeacon’s ally. Slope loses the battle with Mrs Proudie and quits Barchester.
