"Taking place in London and Paris in the eighteenth century, in the years leading up to and during the French Revolution, Charles Dickens’ A Tale of Two Cities is one of injustice, revenge, rebirth, love, and sacrifice. Originally published in thirty-one weekly installments in 1859, this novel is an uncharacteristic one for Dickens, for it lacks comic relief, as well as a protagonist— though London and Paris are considered to be the true protagonists. The turbulence found in this epic tale is also believed to reflect the turbulence in Dickens’ personal life at the time he wrote it."
