Ground-breaking classic that tackles anti-Semitism in 19th-century Britain. It's certainly dense reading, but the payoff is huge--fully fleshed out characters that provide great insights into issues of wealth, vanity, pride and power.

A critique on the acceptability of people in Victorian society at a time when certain factions were considered outside society. Daniel Daronda is a lost man - he has no real identity except as a love child of a noble man. However he must find his own way in such a time and place. How he discoveres his own identity and accepts it makes for a wonderful story that is ahead of its time.
