  • "Political manifesto of the Young English party."@en
  • "Coningsby: Set against a background of the real political events of the 1830s in England that followed the enactment of the Reform Bill of 1832, the novel follows the life and career of Henry Coningsby, the orphan grandson of a wealthy marquess, called Lord Monmouth. Lord Monmouth initially disapproved of Coningsby's parents' marriage, but on their death he relents and sends the boy to be educated at Eton College. At Eton Coningsby meets and befriends Oswald Millbank, the son of a rich cotton manufacturer who is a bitter enemy of Lord Monmouth. The two older men represent old and new wealth in society. His friendship with Millbank costs him dearly, but ultimately leads to his success in marriage and politics."@en
  • "Coningsby tells of the rise of the idealistic movement known as Young England, a movement heralded by Disraeli, the purpose of which was to mitigate some of the horrors of the flourishing Industrial Revolution by strengthening the royal power against manufacturers. It is of importance in the history of politics as well as the novel since it was one of the first novels of politics published in England. In addition, containing as it does many pseudonyms and malicious portraits of such contemporaries of Disraeli as John Bright, Gladstone, and Theodore Hook, Coningsby is as well a comic masterpiece and a superb novel of society and manners.--From publisher description."
  • "Henry Coningsby is the orphaned grandson of a wealthy Marquess. While at Eton he befriends Oswald, whose father is an enemy of the Marquess. The older men represent old and new money in society. Coningsby begins to develop liberal political views, so his grandfather disinherits him, and Coningsby is forced to work for a living."@en

  • "Tancred: Tancred, Lord Montacute, the novel's idealistic young hero, seems destined to live the life of any conventional member of the British ruling class. Dissatisfied with his life in fashionable London circles, he instead leaves his parents and retraces the steps of his Crusader ancestors to the Holy Land, hoping there to "penetrate the great Asian mystery" and understand the roots of Christianity. He meets the beautiful Eva, daughter of a Jewish financier, and becomes involved in the political machinations of her foster-brother, the brilliant Fakredeen, a Lebanese emir. At Fakredeen's instigation Tancred is kidnapped and held captive, but is nevertheless allowed to visit Mount Sinai. Here he has a vision of an angel who tells him he must be the prophet of "the sublime and solacing doctrine of theocratic equality", a concept which Disraeli leaves somewhat hazy. Tancred falls ill, and is released at the instigation of Eva, who nurses him back to health. She teaches him about the glories of Mediterranean civilization and the debt that Christianity owes to Judaism. Tancred, in love with Eva and utterly convinced that she is right, proposes marriage, but the romance is broken off when his parents appear to reclaim their son and take him back to England."@en
