The Tale of 2 Cities

Please make sure to answer by each question…not all together. Thanks so much

MAKE SURE..The answers have to be from Book 2, Chapter 14-20 and Book 3 Chapter 15

  1. What is the author’s attitude toward the French Revolution?
  2. The final passages of A Tale of Two Cities are told from Carton’s perspective although he is already dead. Why does the author do this, and what is its effect?
  3. In Book 1, Chapter 3, the author says:

A wonderful fact to reflect upon, that every human creature is constituted to be that profound secret and mystery to every other. A solemn consideration, when I enter a great city by night, that every one of those darkly clustered houses encloses its own secret; that every room in every one of them encloses its own secret; that every beating heart in the hundreds of thousands of breasts there is, in some of its imaginings, a secret to the heart nearest it!

One of the themes in the novel involves secrets. Pick two characters and explain the role of their secrets in the novel.

4. The motif of doubles/mirror images recurs numerous times in A Tale of Two Cities. Identify two examples and explain how the author uses the motif to convey a main idea in the novel.
