Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Dickens' second historical novel, which he considered "the best story I have written," provides a highly-charged examination of human suffering and human sacrifice. Private experience and public history paralled one another as the political activities and personal responsibilities of these fictional characters, during the French Revolution, draw them into the Paris of the Terror.

Synopsis:

Set between 1757 and 1793, "A Tale of Two Cities" views the causes and effects of the Revolution, showing how private experience relates to public history. Dickens' characters are drawn towards the Paris of the Terror, and all become caught up in its web of human suffering and human sacrifice.

Synopsis:

Dickens's classic tale of the French Revolution brings to life a time of terror and treason, and chronicles a starving people who rise in frenzy and hate to overthrow a corrupt and decadent regime. This 150th anniversary edition features a new Afterword. Revised reissue.
