Phineas Finn By Anthony Trollope

An adventurous Irishman sets out to find his fortune among proper English society in this classic novel from Anthony Trollope.

Sent to London to become a lawyer, young Phineas Finn proves himself to be a disappointing student but truly gifted in the ways of charm, culture, and fine appearance. It is the discovery of these talents that ultimately leads him to what he believes is his true calling: English Parliament.

Through sheer luck and pluck, dashing, innocent Phineas is able to win a seat on the bench, but the real journey begins as he tours the labyrinthine halls of those who hold sway over their fellow men—and the practical and romantic quandaries he must navigate if he is to advance himself. Finding both victory and defeat, love and loneliness, the path Phineas strides is one of confidence and humanity as he seeks to fulfill his wants and desires while holding true to his convictions both in his own life and in the ever-changing arena of political expediency.

In Phineas Finn, Anthony Trollope invites readers to follow an irrepressible, good-minded protagonist in a comical, exciting, heartbreaking tale that resonates as much today as it did upon its first publication.
