Comments¶ Orley Farm skillfully combines tragedy and humor and introduces one of Trollope’s more endearing characters, Sir Peregrine Orme. Trollope commented, as recorded in Gerould's Guide to Trollope (Princeton University Press, 1948), that “Most of those among my friends who are competent to form an opinion on the subject, say that this is the best I have written.” Orley Farm was the first novel by Trollope to be issued in parts.
