Riassunto: 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.
L'autore: Benjamin Disraeli, 1st Earl of Beaconsfield, was an English statesman and literary figure.
