    A Tale of Two Cities (1859) is a novel by Charles Dickens , set in London and Paris before and during the French Revolution. The novel depicts the plight of the French peasantry demoralized by the French aristocracy in the years leading up to the revolution, the corresponding brutality demonstrated by the revolutionaries toward the former aristocrats in the early years of the revolution, and many unflattering social parallels with life in London during the same period.

    Dickens''''''''s famous opening sentence introduces the universal approach of the book, the French Revolution, and the drama depicted within:

    When you think of the French Revolution, a few things spring immediately to mind. Marie Antoinette. The Bastille. The Guillotine. A Tale of Two Cities.

    Yes, in what is a totally weird twist, Charles Dickens, who spent the majority of his literary career penning the exploits of London underdogs, also happened to write a novel that has become crystallized in the public imagination as synonymous with the French Revolution. It's weird, but it's also super-true.

    "modern cities" and "global economy" are two separate questions. To both I d have to say it isn t clear that it did. In what way was ancient Rome not a "modern city"? What distinguishes a "modern city"? For example, Rome imported food from all sorts of faraway places; grain from Egypt and Tunisia http://books.google.com/books?id=Mh_YuHaONo4C&pg=PA13&lpg=PA13&dq=rome+trade+grain&source=bl&ots=9u5hDb5zS-&sig=DD2SPrWO3lUcYUzzKuwThRlqfaY&hl=en&ei=zF8KSr-8PJGctgOOltHnCA&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=4 http://www.historylearningsite.co.uk/ancient_rome_and_trade.htm http://www.unrv.com/economy.php Olive oil and wine from Spain; etc. And, of course, Rome traded with the rest of the world for a large variety of goods - silk and spice, copper and tin, etc. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roman_commerce It was the case that the Industrial Revolution set the stage for the urbanization of society - the creation of more cities. That s because it was preceded by and supported the Agricultural Revolution, by which a smaller number of people could grow much more food, leaving no work for most of the rural population and forcing them off the land and into the cities. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_Agricultural_Revolution But that fact that an increasing percentage of the population came to live in cities does not, in and of itself, make the cities fundamentally different. As for the global economy, again, that was well underway before the Industrial Revolution - with Spain setting up cattle ranches in North America to provide leather for the European trade, http://books.google.com/books?id=iy8jXXFuWdEC&pg=PA219&lpg=PA219&dq=spain+cattle+ranches+new+world&source=bl&ots=22-Ng4q3Hk&sig=1ctLI77oz3nPS9Qy4MnQhOZ7fEc&hl=en&ei=8GUKSuntMIfqtAOtre3UCA&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=1 with The British East India Company importing tea and cotton (and undercutting the weavers of England in the process), http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_East_India_Company#Foothold_in_India European fishing fleets coming to Cape Cod, etc. The difference that the Industrial revolution made was that England could now produce manufactured goods in large quantities so much cheaper than anyone else, that it had to find new markets for its products. (Factories are not economical if you are not producing large quantities.) Similarly, it needed more raw materials from the rest of the world. Note that the result, while global, was very different from the global economy of today. Today, the biggest exporters of cheap goods are in the under-developed countries, not the most developed. The developed world now tends to produce high end (high value added) goods.

    When you think of the French Revolution, a few things spring immediately to mind. Marie Antoinette. The Bastille. The Guillotine. A Tale of Two Cities.

    Yes, in what is a totally weird twist, Charles Dickens, who spent the majority of his literary career penning the exploits of London underdogs, also happened to write a novel that has become crystallized in the public imagination as synonymous with the French Revolution. It''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''s weird, but it''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''s also super-true.

    When the Darnays return from their honeymoon, the first person to greet them is Sydney Carton. He takes Charles aside and asks him to forget the fact that he ever said that he didn t like him. Charles assures him that it was enough that Sydney saved his life at the trial, and he gives Carton the privilege of coming back and forth to the Soho house whenever he likes.

    Carton leaves. Darnay speaks generally of the conversation at dinner, remarking on what an odd and dissolute character he is. Darnay means no harm and is only speaking the truth, but later that night Lucie implores him not to speak of Carton in that way but to feel some sympathy for him, which Darnay readily agrees to do.

    "We have so asserted our station, both in the old time and in the modern time also," said the nephew, gloomily, "that I believe our name to be more detested than any name in France."

    "Let us hope so," said the uncle. "Detestation of the high is the involuntary homage of the low." (2.9.48-49)

    Charles may have cast off his inheritance, but his feelings seem to have little to no influence on his uncle, a standard-bearer of the arrogant aristocracy.

    Get a YA S version like I have~and I m 38! You will enjoy it because it is easy to follow, not at all old English writing that is impossible to understand. Shakespeare is but not this, this is from the common man s perspective.

    I think the character of Severus Snape (in the Harry Potter series of books and movies, particularly the movie Deathly Hallows Part 2) has similarities to Carton. Not exactly a youth living in contemporary society as HP is a fantasy, but the movies are modern day.
