Young England

 

a circle of conservative writers and politicians in Great Britain who constituted a political grouping in the House of Commons during 1841–45. One of its most prominent members was B. Disraeli.

Young England demanded the complete restoration of the privileges of the landed aristocracy and opposed all concessions to the industrial bourgeoisie. Demagogically supporting the introduction of certain half-measures to ease the situation of the workers, the members of Young England were at the same time fervent opponents of an independent proletarian movement. K. Marx and F. Engels characterized their views as “feudal socialism”(Soch., 2nd ed., vol. 4, pp. 448–49). Young England existed as a literary circle until 1848.
