The object of my thesis was to show Benjamin Disraeli's concern with politics, his life long application to the work of government, the struggle that raged within him during his early years between his choice for a political or a literary career, and the manner in which he appied his views in his writings. The method I followed to obtain the required material was a thorough analysis of each of the three novels of the trilogy, Coningsby, Sybil, and Tancred. The fundamental and basic ideas of the author on the political, social, and religious fields were carefully interpreted and included. In this part of my endeavors I have explained all material concerning the weaknesses of the aristocracy, the position of the monarch, the helplessness of the people, the corrupt state of the Church, and the means by which the cure for national ills was possible.
