Abstract

[Extract] Byron's influence over Disraeli is a well-recognized literary and historical fact. Byron, Robert Blake remarks "was one of Disraeli's heroes. Again and again in his words and life, the echo of Byron reverberates" (Disraeli's Grand Tour 30). But what is "the echo of Byron," exactly? And how did that echo "reverberate" in Disraeli's words and life in the crucial two-year period (1830-1831) of his grand tour, which followed Byron's own trip of 1809-1811 so closely?
