ABOUT THE BOOK

A Tale of Two Cities is a historical novel by Charles Dickens. Its story is set against the conditions that led up to the French Revolution and the Reign of Terror. The novel tells the story of:

  • the French Doctor Manette;
  • his 18-year-long imprisonment in the Bastille in Paris;
  • his release to live in London with his daughter Lucie, whom he had never met;
  • Lucie's marriage and the collision between her beloved husband and the people who caused her father's imprisonment;
  • and Monsieur and Madame Defarge, sellers of wine in a poor suburb of Paris;

With this book, Dickens asserts his belief in the possibility of resurrection and transformation, both on a personal level and a societal level. Although the novel describes the atrocities committed both by the aristocracy and by the outraged peasants, it ultimately expresses the belief that this violence will give way to a new and better society.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Charles Dickens was an English writer and social critic, often regarded as the literary colossus of his age. He created some of the world's best-known fictional characters and is regarded as the greatest novelist of the Victorian era. His works enjoyed unprecedented popularity during his lifetime. By the 20th century, critics and scholars had recognised him as a literary genius.
Born in Portsmouth, Dickens left school to work in a factory when his father was incarcerated in a debtors' prison. Despite his lack of formal education, he edited a weekly journal for 20 years, wrote 15 novels, five novellas, hundreds of short stories and non-fiction articles, lectured and performed readings extensively,  and campaigned vigorously for children's rights, education, and other social reforms.
Dickens' literary success began with the 1836 serial publication of The Pickwick Papers. Within a few years, he had become an international literary celebrity, famous for his humour, satire, and keen observation of character and society.
