Sybil, or The Two Nations is one of the finest novels to depict the social problems of class-ridden Victorian England. The book's publication in 1845 created a sensation, for its immediacy and readability brought the plight of the working classes sharply to the attention of the reading public. The 'two nations' of the alternative title are the rich and poor, so disparate in their opportunities and living conditions, and so hostile to each other. that they seem almost to belong to different countries. The gulf between them is given a poignant focus by the central romantic plot concerning the love of Charles Egremont, a member of the landlord class, for Sybil, the poor daughter of a militant Chartist leader.

MEDIA REVIEWS

“Like a whirlpool, it never ends”

Gotta love those Victorian block capitals. I mean, today, if you write about PRESIDENT OBAMA or FRAU MERKEL, you’ll be taken for a random internet shouty man, and rightly ignored. This is how it should be done:... More
