The storming of the Bastille...the death carts with their doomed human cargo...the swift drop of the guillotine blade -- this is the French Revolution that Charles Dickens vividly captures in his famous work, A Tale of Two Cities.

With dramatic eloquence, he brings to life a time of terror and treason, a starving people rising in frenzy and hate to overthrow a corrupt and decadent regime. With insight and compassion, he casts his novel of unforgettable scenes with unforgettable characters: the sinister Madame Defarge, knitting her patterns of death; the gentle Lucie Manette, unswerving in her devotion to her broken father; the heroic Sydney Carton, who gives his life for the love of a girl who would never be his.
