Youve read A Tale of Two Citiesperhaps more than once. But what are gaols, bumpers, tocsins, farmer-generals, and the Court of Kings Bench? Where are Shooters Hill, Temple Bar, and La Force, and who on earth was Mrs. Southcott? And did all those starving French people have baguettes in mind when they wanted bread?
The Annotated A Tale of Two Cities is not a literary analysis of Dickenss novel, but a source of information for the new reader, the longterm fan, and the student, about things, people, places, and events mentioned in the text. In 780 notes to the unabridged novel, historical author and independent scholar Susanne Alleyn explains Dickenss references to things and places familiar to 19th-century Londoners, illustrates his many literary allusions and Victorian expressions, and provides an in-depth, factual background to his gripping but often misleading depiction of the French Revolutiona period that owes much of its distorted image today to the popularity of A Tale of Two Cities itself.
*This book was previously released under the title A Tale of Two Cities: A Reader's Companion.*
