A Tale of Two Cities
Author: Charles Dickens
A Learning Language Arts Through Literature book; Gold British Literature Book (High School)
One of Dickens's most haunting novels, A Tale of Two Cities has, since its first serial publication in 1859, continued to exert a grip on the popular imagination. The two cities of the title--a lethal, vengeful Paris during the French Revolution and a leafy, tranquil London--are only one of the novel's stark dichotomies, which are continued as Syndey Carton and Charles Darnay are drawn toward their separate destinies--their lives touched by the same woman.
