The best of times, the worst of times, the age of wisdom, the age of foolishness, the epoch of belief, the epoch of incredulity, the season of Light, the season of Darkness, the spring of hope, the winter of despair, having everything, yet nothing, leading to heaven, yet leading to the other way, the time of the French Revolution was all this and more. In this setting Dickens begins his most famous work, telling the story of the French peasantry demoralised by the French aristocracy in the years leading up to the revolution. Principally the story of Sidney Carton and Lucie Manette, this book follows them and the villainous Madame Defarge to tell a story of darkness, love, forgiveness, revenge and self-sacrifice.
