A Tale of Two Cities is Charles Dickens’s most famous historical
novel. Set in Paris and London at the time of the French
Revolution, this is the story of two men, Frenchman, Charles
Darnay, and Englishman, Sydney Carton. As the Revolution takes hold
and the Terror begins, the two men’s destinies bring them together
in a powerful story of love, hate and revenge. We meet
revolutionaries and aristocrats, and see the poverty of many in
both London and Paris contrasted with the wealth of a few.
