A Tale of Two Cities (Routledge Guides to Literature) by Glancy, Ruth

Since its publication in 1859, A Tale of Two Cities has remained the best-known fictional recreation of the French Revolution, and one of Charles Dickenss most exciting novels. A Tale of Two Cities blends a moving love story with the familiar figures of the Revolution-Bastille prisoners, a starving Parisian mob, and an indolent aristocracy. Taking the form of a sourcebook, this guide to Dickenss dramatic novel offers: - extensive introductory comment on the contexts and many interpretations of the text, from publication to the present - annotated extracts from key contextual documents, reviews, critical works and the text itself - cross-references between documents and sections of the guide, in order to suggest links between texts, contexts and criticism - suggestions for further reading. Part of the Routledge Guides to Literature series, this volume is essential reading for all those beginning detailed study of A Tale of Two Citiesand seeking not only a guide to the novel, but a way through the wealth of contextual and critical material that surrounds Dickenss text.
