This section introduces Judah P Benjamin to the reader. It does so through the prism of his lavish retirement banquet, hosted by the Attorney General of England, in June 1883 and his subsequent withdrawal from public life. It draws heavily upon the, perhaps unprecedented, reaction of the English legal profession and the media to the loss of this leader of the Bar and considers the manner in which commentators of the day reflected upon the varied nature of his career and the magnitude of his accomplishments.
