Benjamin Disraeli by Michael Flavin
Book DescriptionDecember 2004 marked the bicentenary of Benjamin Disraelis birth. The Novel as Political Discourse examines Disraelis novels in order to construct a portrait of the man, his context and enduring reputation. Disraelis literary career ran from 1826 to 1880. Within this time he became an M.P., Leader of the Opposition, Chancellor and Prime Minister. His novels can be read as the breeding ground for his ideas, gestated away from the pressure cooker of Parliament. From his first novel, Vivian Grey, about the formation of a new political party, through to the overtly political Young England trilogy (named after a faction of the Conservative Party with which Disraeli was aligned) and beyond, Disraelis novels expose the development of his thinking while also reflecting the anxieties of his age. This book will appeal to those fascinated by Disraeli and Conservatism and anyone interested in the development of Britain in the Victorian era. The book enhances our understanding of this charismatic figure who continues to cast a formidable shadow across the nations politics and culture.
