A Tale of Two Cities

Fferent men Charles Darnay an exiled French aristocrat and Sydney Carton a disreputable but brilliant English lawyer become enmeshed through their love for Lucie Manette From the tranuil roads of Lo Charles Dickens is a demanding writer The narratives of Great Expectations and Oliver Twist are relaxed and simple when compared to this Reading Dickens reuires concentration and a will to carry on when sometimes the writing gives you a headache This is a historical novel Dickens tells the story of the storming of the Bastille some fifty years after it happened Unlike most of his work all traces of humour are removed There are no caricatures and uirkiness within his writing This is all very serious material which of course it needs to be But for me this is what Dickens does best His ability to juxtapose themes of human suffering poverty and deprivation with ideas of the grotesue ridiculous and at times the plain mad are where his real master strokes of penmanship come throughThat s what I like the most about Dickens so I knew my enjoyment of this very serious novel would be hindered immediately What we do have though is a strong revenge plot running through the book and the revolt which occurred two thirds of the way in And like the name of the book suggests this is a tale about two cities London and Paris Dickens loved to criticise society and all its stupid aristocratic nuances Here he takes great pains to show that London is no symbol of societal perfection The aftermath of the French revolution placed the British on a pedestal at least to their own minds They could not believe that their own current systems of ruling could cause such a travesty within their own capital Dickens shows that the men in power were just as corrupt and corruptible wherever they sit revolution can happen again I see a beautiful city and a brilliant people rising from this abyss I see the lives for which I lay down my life peaceful useful prosperous and happy I see that I hold a sanctuary in their hearts and in the hearts of their descendants generations hence It is a far far better thing that I do than I have ever done it is a far far better rest that I go to than I have ever known The streets of Paris are seen before and after the bloodshed and all the strands of seemingly unrelated plots are artfully perhaps slightly forcefully woven together Dickens brings the lives of a huge cast of characters spanning over two cities and two nations all of which have a varied station in life and political beliefs into one final conclusion And it s a strong conclusion though heavily reliant of coincident This is nothing unusual for fiction of the Victorian era though it did feel very much like a construct The modernists would address such issues in the next century mainly to criticise them heavily due to their incapability at capturing the essence of life within fiction Perhaps they have a point here So this is a very strong story one that is highly perceptive and intuitive at times As a reader I need a certain degree of entertainment when reading I find that the wonderfully comic elements that are in some of Dickens other books help to break up the intense moments of the plot Even Jane Austen would interpose her narrative with moments of scathing sarcasm and wit For me this is far from the finest work of Dickens despite the fact that it seems to be his most popular

After eighteen of Two Kindle #208 years as a political prisoner in the Bastille the ageing Doctor Manette is finally released and reunited with his daughter in England There the lives of two very di My primary goal when I m teaching A Tale of Two Cities to my sophos is to make them realize that Charles Dickens didn t write creaky dusty long novels that teachers embraced as a twisted rite of passage for teenagers Instead I want them them to understand why Dickens was one of the most popular writers in England and America during his time I want them to see the book as the suspenseful comedic and sentimental piece of entertainment that it is Because while A Tale of Two Cities is masterfully written with sly humor densely meaningful descriptions a cast of uirky characters only Dickens could create an endless series of telling binaries and foils and relevant social commentary about the French Revolution as well as Dickens time it is also simply a damn good story By a damn good storyteller I have a difficult time writing reviews about books that I adore because when I m not reading them I hug them too closely to be very critical BTW I freuently hug A Tale of Two Cities in front of my students and write Charles Dickens name with hearts around it They think I m crazy but it intrigues some of them just enough to make them doubt the derisive comments of upperclassmen I reluctantly admit that Dickens does oversimplify the causes of the French Revolution and the Reign of Terror however in doing so he successfully captures the spirit of a tumultuous period and helps readers sympathize with characters on every side of the developing conflict I also think that the characters of Roger Cly and John Barsad get a bit messy and may have worked better as a single character Perhaps the confusion is a result of serialization restructuring But really I read A Tale of Two Cities like a costumed Lord of the Rings fan at a movie premier I cheer when my favorite characters enter scenes and I knowingly laugh when Dickens cleverly foreshadows future events Though I don t think that A Tale of Two Cities is Dickens best novel that title I would reserve for either Bleak House or David Copperfield I do agree with Dickens who claims that it was his best story It is artfully written Dickens introduces a cast of characters sprawled across two nations and spanning varied social classes and political affiliations and then effortlessly weaves their stories and secrets together in a masterful way The Modernist movement painstakingly forced literature to reflect the ambiguities and uncertainties of the real world and that s great but sometimes it is a real joy to read a story that ends with such magnificent closure All mysteries are solved and everything makes sense It is beautifulI have to admit that I was overjoyed when a group of my fifth period girls persistently voiced their disdain for Dickens angel in the house Lucie and backed Madame Defarge I think they may have created a Madame Defarge myspace actually Oh how the times have changedMs R you got me What At the beginning of this book you said you would get some of us And that we would love it You got me I didn t get you G Charles Dickens did I just introduced youuoteA wonderful fact to reflect upon that every human creature is constituted to be that profound secret and mystery to every other
