A Tale of Two Cities is Charles Dickens's great historical novel, set against the violent upheaval of the French Revolution.

Though the least typical of the author's novels, A Tale of Two Cities still underscores many of his enduring themes--imprisonment, injustice, and social anarchy, resurrection and the renunciation that fosters renewal.
