Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0140431349, Paperback)So vivid was its exposure of the horrifying inequalities of Victorian society--from the desperate poverty of the industrial workers to the gross and irresponsible excesses of the wealthy--that is subtitle "The Two Nations" has passed intothe language.
But Disraeli, the man who was to become one of Britian's most famous prime ministers, did not produce in "Sybil" merely a political tract on behalf of Tory democracy as the answer to the Hungry Forties. This is a dramatic novel of romance, full of wit and irony; a love story which ranges through adventure, mystery and political intrigue while questioning many of the basic assumptions of the Victorian social structure.
