With his sublime parting words, "It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done..." Sidney Carton joins that exhalted group of Dickensian characters who have earned a permanent place in the popular literary imagination. His dramatic story, set against the volcanic fury of the French Revolution and pervaded by the ominous rumble of the death carts trundling toward the guillotine, is the heart-stirring tale of a heroic soul in an age gone mad. A masterful pageant of idealism, love, and adventure -- in a Paris bursting with revolutionary frenzy, and a London alive with anxious anticipation -- A Tale Of Two Cities is one of Dickens's most energetic and exciting works.From the Back Cover:
A Tale Of Two Cities ends in the Paris of the French Revolution with one of the most famous acts of self-sacrifice in literature, and it begins on a muddy English road in an atmosphere charged with mystery and drama.
