Sybil was written by Benjamin Disraeli, future Prime Minister of Great Britain. He was greatly concerned with the poverty of the working classes, and this novel, with its in-depth exploration of those conditions, expressed and circulated his ideas.

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.
