My primary goal when I m teaching A Tale of Two Cities to my sophos is to make them realize that Charles Dickens didn t write creaky dusty long novels that teachers embraced as a twisted rite of passage for teenagers Instead I want them them to understand why Dickens was one of the most popular writers in England and America during his time I want them to see the book as the suspenseful comedic and sentimental piece of entertainment that it is Because while A Tale of Two Cities is masterfully written with sly humor densely meaningful descriptions a cast of uirky characters only Dickens could create an endless series of telling binaries and foils and relevant social commentary about the French Revolution as well as Dickens time it is also simply a damn good story By a damn good storyteller I have a difficult time writing reviews about books that I adore because when I m not reading them I hug them too closely to be very critical BTW I freuently hug A Tale of Two Cities in front of my students and write Charles Dickens name with hearts around it They think I m crazy but it intrigues some of them just enough to make them doubt the derisive comments of upperclassmen I reluctantly admit that Dickens does oversimplify the causes of the French Revolution and the Reign of Terror however in doing so he successfully captures the spirit of a tumultuous period and helps readers sympathize with characters on every side of the developing conflict I also think that the characters of Roger Cly and John Barsad get a bit messy and may have worked better as a single character Perhaps the confusion is a result of serialization restructuring But really I read A Tale of Two Cities like a costumed Lord of the Rings fan at a movie premier I cheer when my favorite characters enter scenes and I knowingly laugh when Dickens cleverly foreshadows future events Though I don t think that A Tale of Two Cities is Dickens best novel that title I would reserve for either Bleak House or David Copperfield I do agree with Dickens who claims that it was his best story It is artfully written Dickens introduces a cast of characters sprawled across two nations and spanning varied social classes and political affiliations and then effortlessly weaves their stories and secrets together in a masterful way The Modernist movement painstakingly forced literature to reflect the ambiguities and uncertainties of the real world and that s great but sometimes it is a real joy to read a story that ends with such magnificent closure All mysteries are solved and everything makes sense It is beautifulI have to admit that I was overjoyed when a group of my fifth period girls persistently voiced their disdain for Dickens angel in the house Lucie and backed Madame Defarge I think they may have created a Madame Defarge myspace actually Oh how the times have changedMs R you got me What At the beginning of this book you said you would get some of us And that we would love it You got me I didn t get you G Charles Dickens did I just introduced youuoteA wonderful fact to reflect upon that every human creature is constituted to be that profound secret and mystery to every other

Most satisfying ending in the English language Yes the last line is a classic It is a far far better thing concluding in astonishingly concise language for Dickens the peace and redemption of the story s most poignant romantic hero But this novel delivers such a gratifying experience because there are in fact many characters who cover significant emotional ground in their journey to love one woman as best they can Lucie s father battles his way back from madness under the gentle protection of his daughter Lucie s childhood nursemaid evolves from a comical stereotype to an embattled force to be reckoned with Lucie s husband s well meaning if bland noblesse oblige culminates in not his hoped for heroic moment but a moment of uiet dignity that is most moving for its humility Even Lucie s banker reaches dizzying heights of heroic accomplishment when Dickens appoints the uiet businessman the vehicle for an entire family s escape from the guillotineIt is true that Lucie herself engages the reader less than her brutal counterpart the broken but terrifying Madame Defarge is able to as modern readers are less moved by the swooning heroines who populate the period s literature of sensibility But we can certainly respond to Dickens powerful and vivid claim love is not only what makes us human it is what allows us to be at times superhumanAnd when Sydney Carton in eual parts love and despair tells Lucie that there is a man who would give his life to keep a life you love beside you I go to pieces Every damn time
