Charles Dickens's  A Tale of Two Cities by Prof. Harold Bloom


Charles Dickens's A Tale of Two Cities by Prof. Harold Bloom

Written for serial publication in 1859, Charles Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities is a historical novel that takes place in England and France in the years leading up to the French Revolution. It is one of Dickens' most famous and widely taught novels. Its first line, which begins, It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, is one of the most recognizable openers in all of literature. Newly updated, this Bloom's Modern Critical Interpretations title offers essays that provide exceptional scholarly analysis worthy of the novel's literary stature.


Each essay is well-defined and laboriously researched, and each opinion is defended within its context...The book is a useful tool for students needing to examine the themes and context of Tolkien's work.
