A Tale Of Two Cities

Penguin English Library




The Penguin English Library Edition of A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens

'Liberty, equality, fraternity, or death; - the last, much the easiest to bestow, O Guillotine!'
Described by Dickens as 'the best story I have written', A Tale of Two Cities interweaves thrilling historical drama with heartbreaking personal tragedy. It vividly depicts a revolutionary Paris running red with blood, and a London where the poor starve. In the midst of the chaos two men - an exiled French aristocrat and a dissolute English lawyer - are both redeemed and condemned by their love for the same woman, as the shadow of La Guillotine draws closer...
The Penguin English Library - 100 editions of the best fiction in English, from the eighteenth century and the very first novels to the beginning of the First World War.
