    The Conscience of the Rich Comment

    1. The first person narrator of C.P Snow s 1958 novel The Conscience of the Rich is Lewis Eliot, a poor young man who has scrimped his way through Cambridge and become a lawyer He befriends another new Cambridge lawyer, Charles March, scion of one of the great Anglo Jewish banking families The time period of the novel is 1927 to about 1936 Early on Charles becomes disenchanted with law, and drops out of the Bar, much to his father Leonard s horror Lewis becomes very close to the March family, inclu [...]


    2. 2 The Conscience of the Rich blurb It is April 1936 and Lewis is now 31 years old While the facists and the Republicans fought it out in Spain, Lewis navigated his way through the lower echelons of the British establishment From obscure Midlands poverty he has risen to a fellowship in law at Cambridge University He had a pretty wife who no one except his closest friends knew was useless He had never been to University and learned his basic law at night school He had never been in business and im [...]


    3. All of Snow s Strangers and Brothers novels are like literary soap operas set in upper class London Not upper upper class, mind There s always a lot of striving, but with barely a look down The outside world peeps in, of course, but the main focus is always on the inner circle of family and class The ironies are subtle The characters are drawn with a full brush Always a joy to read one every couple of months.


    4. I adore the entirew Strangers and Brothers series by C.P Snow, but possibly the third is my favorite Or the fourth, The Light and the dark I have always said that no one constructs a sentence so perfectly and so consistently perfectly as C.P Snow.I also highly recommend his wife s body of work, the equally talented but less known Pamela Hansford Johnson.


    5. I have never quite had a friend like Charles March I wonder how different my life could have been if I had I wonder how different the life of Lewis Eliot would have been if he hadn t These are all quite interesting counter factual speculations that weave in and out of fact and fiction If only Charles March, in my opinion, was quite instrumental in the life of Lewis Eliot He provided a guiding hand at an early stage of Eliot s career One could even argue that he got Eliot started He provided the [...]


    6. I like British postwar fiction, and among its celebrated examples CP Snow s he of the two cultures thing Strangers and Brothers series of eleven novels seemed like it might appeal So I decided to read them but not in order of publication, in order of internal chronology The Conscience Of The Rich is the third book in the series, but was written and published seventh It s the late 1920s, Lewis Eliot has moved to London and joined an inn of court, under Herbert Getliffe He meets a fellow trainee [...]


    7. Story about a law student in London, from a lower class familly, making friends with the upperclass through a fellow student from a rich Jewish family I didn t enjoy the read, which was flat and cold Little points of recognition interest Not a story I could enjoy or learn something from.



    8. A novel of conflict exploring the world of the great Anglo Jewish banking families between the two World Wars.Working from a list of books I read years ago.



    9. Best of the series so far Terrific portrait of family relations and a moving moral dilemma than in the earlier books.
