The British statesman, Benjamin Disraeli, who was twice prime minister, also achieved great fame as a novelist. His early ‘silver fork’ novels, including ‘Vivian Grey’, featured romanticised depictions of aristocratic life, while his celebrated masterpiece, the ‘Young England’ trilogy, is charged with political insight, espousing the belief that Englands future as a world power depended not on the complacent ‘old guard’, but on youthful, idealistic politicians. This comprehensive eBook presents Disraeli’s complete fictional works, with numerous illustrations, rare texts appearing in digital print for the first time, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material.
