Other Editions of This Title:
Dickens' second historical novel, which he considered the best story I have written, provides a highly-charged examination of human suffering and human sacrifice. Private experience and public history paralled one another as the political activities and personal responsibilities of these fictional characters, during the French Revolution, draw them into the Paris of the Terror.
