I found this book interesting but it has been years it would deserve a reread to be fair to it. ( )

"Dizzy" marries older woman for money and becomes Prime Minister of England, in service to Queen Victoria. Dies with a very modest estate.

I like Maurois as a writer, and I find Disraeli interesting, though I do not admire him as much as I did when I was young. I only just got this copy, but I believe I read the book many years ago. ( )

Disraeli and Gladstone have long been fixed in mind as iconographic rivals of British politics during the reign of Queen Victoria, but this brief, impressionistic biography by Andre Maurois gave me some sense of both men's characters. It is not long on chronology or specific facts, but it does portray Disraeli very sympathetically and as a human being rather than just a political figure. ( )

Flowery and well-written biography of Disraeli, the dandy/prime minister. ( )

Das Leben ist zu kurz, um klein zu sein. (Disraeli)
First words
In the year 1290, on All Saints' Day, King Edward I expelled the Jews from England.
The subtle poetry of a British Budget is perhaps the most recondite art for an unfortunate who, like Disraeli, has not been reared from infancy by the Muses of Westminster.
