Excerpt

n Mary, made from the cannon taken at Sebastopol. Half-way down the hill the cathedral is built, a singularly gloomy edifice,--Romanesque, as it is called, in its style, but extremely similar in its mode of architecture to what we know of Byzantine structures. But there has been no surface on the rock side large enough to form a resting- place for the church, which has therefore been built out on huge supporting piles, which form a porch below the west front; so that the approach is by numerous steps laid along the side of the wall below the church, forming a wondrous flight of stairs. Let all men who may find themselves stopping at Le Puy visit the top of these stairs at the time of the setting sun, and look down from thence through the framework of the porch on the town beneath, and at the hill-side beyond.

Behind the church is the seminary of the priests, with its beautiful walks stretching round the Rocher de Corneille, and overlooking the town and valley below.

    Scrittore inglese. Autore di quarantasette romanzi, fra i grandi della letteratura inglese dell'Ottocento è forse il meno conosciuto in Italia, nonostante lo straordinario successo tra i lettori di lingua inglese e la fortuna più recente tra i critici. Impiegato delle poste in Irlanda, scrisse nei momenti liberi romanzi caratterizzati un misurato verismo e da una sottile vena umoristica.In Italia è pubblicato soprattutto da Sellerio. Fra i titoli editi dalla casa palermitana, ricordiamo Orley Farm, Lady Anna, Un'autobiografia, La vita oggi, Il Primo Ministro e tutti i romanzi del cosiddetto «ciclo del Barsetshire»: L'amministratore, Le torri di Barchester, Il Dottor Thorne, La Canonica di Framley e Le ultime cronache del Barset.
