HASH(0x8b01e5b8) étoiles sur 5 A political novel, you need some background knowledge to appreciate it 26 février 2015

This is one of Disraeli's three "political" novels. The plot is overall rather tenuous and it really helps to know about the historical, social, and economic background of the story. The novel is set in the 1840s at a time when Chartists were trying to get their petition and their "6 points" discussed in Parliament, in order to improve the condition of the working classes in England. Characters often discuss the "Condition of England Question" and those pages are mostly interesting to the specialist or the student. There is a romantic relationship between Sybil and another character, but we have to wait until the end of the book to see some development. Overall it is a book that I would recommend to anyone interested in the conditions and struggles of the working classes in Victorian England, but remember that Disraeli's ideal was a nostalgic feudalism. A much better book is probably "North and South" by Elizabeth Gaskell, where the same subject is dealt with with mastery and insight.

A great book about the fall of the reign of British monarchy, the rise of Labour and the emergence of the two political parties in UK. A very commendable and well written book.

HASH(0x8b1e7ad4) étoiles sur 5 Interesting period piece 30 décembre 2014

I have read many Victorian novels and very much enjoyed those of Dickens, Trollope and Austen. I knew Disraeli had been a major politician and a favourite of Queen Victoria and was keen to try his writing. Compared with the other authors I've mentioned I found him very ponderous and rather didactic in style but in the case of this novel I liked the manner in which he portrayed the two classes of employer and worker, the rich and the poor. It was rather simplified but the story was reasonably gripping. His long and - to a modern reader - very dull diversions into the political struggles of his day can be skipped without in any way taking from the story.

Theresa May in her first speech outside Number 10 said that she was a one nation Conservative. As it happened, I was just finishing Sybil, by nineteenth century Conservative prime minister Benjamin Disraeli - the book from which the One Nation idea derives. Sybil, set in northern England, describes a calamitous divide between rich and poor, a division so dramatic that people live entirely different existences within one country.

Sybil certainly does not shy away from the iniquities of social division. The descriptions of poverty, oppression and infanticide are comparable with Dickens. Nevertheless, the complexity of the book comes from showing that the two nation divide is also an illusion. There are all kinds of plot twists showing complex links between the two worlds. Today Labour leaders like Jeremy Corbyn or John McDonnell cling to the illusion of worker solidarity; but as they face another day of rows, resignations and turbulence, perhaps they should read the following passage from Disraeli's book as the lovely Sybil comes to realise that her cause is not as straightforward as it appears:

"There was not that strong and rude simplicity in its organization she had supposed. The characters were more various, the motives more mixed, the classes more blended, the elements of each more subtle and diversified, than she had imagined. The People she found was not that pure embodiment of unity of feeling, of interest, and of purpose, which she had pictured in her abstractions. The people had enemies among the people: their own passions; which made them often sympathize, often combine, with the privileged."

As a story, Disraeli shamelessly uses that tried and tested Mills and Boon device, where a man and woman, though apparently hopelessly divided by wealth, find unlikely love - the worthy shop girl catching the eye of the billionaire idea. This familiar plot becomes part of Disraeli's bigger argument about the complexity of social divisions.

There are long nineteenth century sentences to deal with; and at some points Disraeli gaily abandons that good advice to show rather than tell. But this is a great book, one of the most influential in the history of modern British government, with continuing relevance to the politics we see today.

I enjoyed the book. The underlying love story was well written. Getting through everything surrounding it was a very daunting task. I'm not sure I would recommend this book.
