在英格兰的大教堂城市,教会和政治的关系密不可分。政府任命这些城市教会的首领——主教,主教之下还有执事长、教士长、代牧、堂区牧师以及特遣牧师——级别、重要性、影响力和收入都不尽相同的各类神职人员。这一切已经够复杂的了,然而,普劳蒂博士被委任为巴彻斯特新主教一事,颠覆了这座宁静城市的既定等级,权力斗争由此而起,反抗对象是新任主教的妻子——令人生畏的普劳蒂太太。再加上新任主教的特遣牧师奥巴代亚·斯洛普,一个油滑的野心家,战争的要素就算齐备了。

In the great cathedral cities of England, the church and politics go hand in hand. The government appoints the bishop, who is the head of the church in that city, and below him come archdeacons, deans, vicars, parsons, chaplains—all kinds of clergymen, of differing degrees of rank, importance, influence, and income. All this is complicated enough, but the appointment of Dr Proudie as the new Bishop of Barchester overturns the old established order in the peaceful city, and a struggle for power begins against the new bishop's wife, the fearsome Mrs Proudie. And when you also add to the mixture the new bishop's chaplain, the oily and ambitious Obadiah Slope, you have a recipe for war.

本书是英国小说家安东尼·特洛勒普的代表作之一,也是他的“巴塞特系列小说”中重要作品之一。 1850年,特洛勒普在邮局工作,利用往返于都柏林与贝尔法斯特火车上的时间完成了本书大部分的手稿。本书讲述了巴彻斯特教堂内部争夺权力的斗争和寡妇埃莉诺与牛津代牧阿拉宾有情人终成眷属的故事。

Barchester Towers, published in 1857, is the second novel in Anthony Trollope's series known as the "Chronicles of Barsetshire". Among other things it satirises the then raging antipathy in the Church of England between High Church and Evangelical adherents. Trollope began writing this book in 1855. "Barchester Towers is many readers' favourite Trollope", wrote The Guardian, which included it in its list of "1000 novels everyone must read".

安东尼·特洛勒普(1815-1882)是英国维多利亚时代最为出色的长篇小说家之一。代表作为《巴彻斯特教堂尖塔》和《巴彻斯特养老院》等长篇小说。他的写实手法揭露讥讽英国维多利亚女王时代中、上层社会,并自觉灌注道德教育意图。他的小说情节发展自然流畅,文笔犀利幽默,人物形象生动,心理刻画逼真深刻。

Anthony Trollope (24 April 1815 – 6 December 1882) was an English novelist of the Victorian era. Among his best-known works is a series of novels collectively known as the Chronicles of Barsetshire, which revolves around the imaginary county of Barsetshire. He also wrote novels on political, social, and gender issues, and other topical matters. Trollope's popularity and critical success diminished in his later years, but he continued to write prolifically, and some of his later novels have acquired a good reputation.

一八五二年七月下旬,在古老的大教堂城市巴彻斯特,有一个很重要的问题人们时刻都在问,而回答也是五花八门。这个问题就是:“谁将成为新任主教?”

During the last ten days of July in the year 1852, in the ancient cathedral city of Barchester, a most important question was asked every hour and answered every hour in different ways— 'Who is to be the new bishop?'
