Sybil, or The Two Nations
by Benjamin Disraeli

Sybil, or The Two Nations is an 1845 novel by Benjamin Disraeli. Sybil traces the plight of the working classes of England. As the title suggests, Disraeli is interested in dealing with the horrific conditions in which the majority of England's working classes lived. It is a novel with a thesis, which was meant to create a propagandistic furor over the squalor that was plaguing England's working class cities.

I would inscribe these volumes to one whose noble spirit and gentle nature ever prompt her to sympathise with the suffering; to one whose sweet voice has often encouraged, and whose taste and judgment have ever guided, their pages; the most severe of critics, but--a perfect Wife!
