Epic and immensely moving tale that appeals to the most ancient and deeply-imbedded concept in the human soul: light and darkness. The sweeping, gripping account of Revolution is balanced by the personal portraits of Darnay and Carton, the symbolic light/dark, sun/moon of the tale. Dickens adds his own immense gifts of imagery, metaphor, description, characterization and humor to the blood-soaked era to craft this unforgettable novel - one of his finest, and thus firmly fixed to the canon of great books of the world.
