Abstract:

Sybil, published in the same year as Friedrich Engels' non-fiction work The Condition of the Working Class in England, brought the inequalities of Victorian society-- the desperate poverty of industrial workers and the excesses of the wealthy-- sharply to the attention of the reading public. The 'two nations' refer to the rich and poor, which are so disparate in their opportunities and living conditions 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.
