2 Reviews
Lothair, though inexperienced and very ingenuous, was not devoid of a certain instinctive perception of men and things, which rendered it difficult for him to be an easy prey. His natural disposition, and his comparatively solitary education, had made him a keen observer, and he was one who mediated over his observations. But he was naturally generous and sensible of kindness; and this was a favourite companion --next to Bertram his most intimate.

Expected more from a literary piece created by the Right Honorable Benjamin Disraeli, but still worth reading - at least to savor and appreciate a sample of his style. Read full review
