Charles Dickens

A Tale of Two Cities

Penguin Classics

€ 9.95

Liberty, equality, fraternity, or death; the last, much the easiest to bestow, O Guillotine!

After eighteen years as a political prisoner in the Bastille the aging Dr Manette is finally released and reunited with his daughter in England. There two very different 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 tranquil lanes of London, they are all drawn against their will to the vengeful, bloodstained streets of Paris at the height of the Reign of Terror and soon fall under the lethal shadow of La Guillotine.

This edition uses the text as it appeared in its first serial publication in 1859 to convey the full scope of Dickenss vision, and includes the original illustrations by H.K. Browne (Phiz). Richard Maxwells introduction discusses the intricate interweaving of epic drama with personal tragedy.
