Summary
Can You Forgive Her? (1864-65) is the first of the six Palliser novels which, as a group, provide us with the most extensive and contradictory expose of British life during the period of its greatest prestige. Alice Vavasor, a girl of independent spirit and means, is engaged to the "paragon" John Grey but, seemingly distressed by his perfection, she jilts him in favor of her less reputable cousin, George. Alice's story is interwoven with that of the early married life of her friend, Lady Glencora. Above all Trollope focuses on the predicament of women. "What should a woman do with her life?" asks Alice Vavasor of herself, and this theme is echoed by every other woman in the novel, from the uncomfortably married Lady Glencora to the coquettish Mrs. Greenow and Alice's clear-headed cousin Kate. - Publisher
