tancfed If you’re disrali Disraeli, I guess you have to read one of the novels. Since I’m interested in Disraeli’s Jewish self-concept, Tancred made sense; it is largely set in Ottoman Syria – modern Israel and Lebanon — and many of the key characters are Jewish. In Tancred, Disraeli lets his characters disrseli the point thar he made in English society: My ancestors were writing the great literature of the ancient world and giving birth to your religion when your ancestors we Well, that was pretty awful.
My ancestors were writing the great literature of the ancient world and giving birth to your religion when your ancestors were living in stone huts and had no written language. Disraeli had travelled to the Eastern Med. Disraeli is better eqarly in the book writing about English types he knew better. Aug 09, Olivia rated it liked it. Read as a child, these books were uplifting and inspiring. Along with Dickens, Shaftesbury, Cobbett, the Brontes, Anna Sewell and Mayhew they allowed a ‘warts’n’all’ understanding of how the 19thC political system worked alongside, not necessarily with, the social order of things.
Disraeli was one of my childhood ‘heroes’ so I did feel honour-bound to read his personal books as well as biographical notes. The style would be considered ponderous, sisraeli, by comparisons with some of today’s lightweight conversations.

Jul 25, Cecily rated it liked it Shelves: Beginning this, I found hope and promise in a clever, novel story, but at moments that novelness was destroyed by Disraeli’s attempts at philosophizing. I know, I know; he’s a Victorian; what did I expect??!
So the book is interesting and great in those moments when the story itself is progressing though action; it is much less interesting and great in those moments when the “situation” is being described or character backgrounds are being discussed. The story is the story of Tancred, an ideal Beginning this, I found hope and promise in a clever, novel story, but at moments that novelness was destroyed tacnred Disraeli’s attempts at philosophizing.
The story is the story of Tancred, an idealized noble British youth who is set on traveling to Jerusalem and the surrounding biblical areas in search of inspiration and revelation. Tancred’s realtionships with women–especially his expectations for women–are fairly typical spiritual, inspiring, beautiful, intellegent, conversant, pure and the plot’s revelations about those women push he forward on his quest.
Jun 19, Haythem Bastawy rated it really liked it. Tancred is the story of a Victorian crusader. Unlike the violent crusaders of the middle ages, he is crusading the Middle East this time with his European Enlightenment, civilisation and religion as the rightful heir to the holy land.
In Tancred, Disraeli establishes a strong link between Judaism and Christianity, and discovers that in many ways half the statesmen who run the world are linked to Judaism one way or another.
The European Tancred, unlike the ‘decayed’ races of the Middle East, is j Tancred is the story of a Victorian crusader. The European Tancred, unlike the ‘decayed’ races of the Middle East, is justified moralistically in imperialistically desiring the Middle East.
