The cruelties of the Old Regime with the savagery of the formerly oppressed peasants visiting their suffering upon the heads of the nobility and all those accused of counterrevolutionary activity. At the same time, the alternative to both the old guard and the modern guillotine is the possibility of redemption. It is a vision laid out by one of the most unlikely characters in this novel, Sidney Carton, who gives his own life in order that the protagonist, Charles Darnay, might live. This hope rises above the crimes of nobility and peasants alike, outliving Madame Defarge herself

display_description During the French Revolution a young English lawyer goes to the guillotine to save a French aristocrat, husband of the woman he loves. "It was the best of times; it was the worst of times..." With these famous words, Charles Dickens plunges the reader into the French Revolution. From the storming of the Bastille to the relentless drop of the guillotine, Dickens vividly captures the terror and upheaval of that tumultuous period. At the center is the novel's hero, Sydney Carton, a lazy, alcoholic attorney who, inspired by a woman, makes the supreme sacrifice. One of Dickens's most exciting novels. A Tale of Two Cities is a stirring classic of love, revenge, and redemption.
