Sybil

Benjamin Disraeli, Nicholas (Emeritus Fellow, Lady Margaret Hall, University of Oxford) Shrimpton

From Shelf: The 100 best novels written in English: the full list (Robert McCrum, The Guardian Dec 2021)

Disraeli vividly depicts the appalling conditions of the poor-their pitiful wages, their miserably overcrowded tenements, and their exploitation by the new breed of powerful industrialists-as an indirect plea for social and political reform and for the fulfilment of his dream of a new, more democratic England.
