A Tale of Two Cities

By Charles Dickens (10)

A Tale of Two Cities, Charles Dickens’s classic novel of Europe in the era of bloody revolution is a captivating story of romance and political intrigue. In 1775, “the best of times and worst of times,” A Tale of Two Cities details the revolutionary spirit of the age, which pits peasants against aristocrats, lawlessness against morality, and self-interest against altruism. The plot follows the fortunes of the French Lucie Manette, and her wrongly imprisoned father, Dr. Manette. The two move to London, where Dr. Manette slowly recovers from the insanity caused by his years in the grim Bastille. Lucie later testifies at the trial of Charles Darnay, a Frenchman living in England accused of treason against the latter nation. Darnay and Lucie eventually marry, start a family, and are befriended by Sydney Carton, a defense lawyer. Events draw Darnay back to Paris, where the aristocratic lineage he has long concealed places him in danger of execution by the revolutionists. Through the self-sacrifice of Sydney Carton, whose uncanny resemblance to Darnay makes the scheme possible, Darnay escapes while Carton goes gallantly to the guillotine for his unrequited love of Lucie, his friend’s wife. A Tale of Two Cities retains an astoundingly popular appeal, and its thematic depth makes for a thought-provoking read.
