A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens. This brilliantly colored tale of the French Revolution is an historical romance set in Paris and London. Famous for the character of Sydney Carton who sacrifices himself upon the guillotine – ‘It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done’ – the novel is also a powerful study of crowd psychology and the dark emotions aroused by the Revolution, illuminated by Dickens’s lively comedy.
