Charles Dickens By CharlesDickens Completed

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 time period. It follows the lives of several protagonists through these events. The most notable are Charles Darnay and Sydney Carton. Darnay is a former French aristocrat who falls victim to the indiscriminate wrath of the revolution despite his virtuous nature, and Carton is a dissipated English barrister who endeavors to redeem his ill-spent life out of his unrequited love for Darnay's wife.

So the Queen's and Kings are having some kind of tea parties together, whilst their people are committing crimes and are left hungry. Sounds familiar. Just stand by and exploit all the richness from Colonization but not actually worry for ur own ppl. Not cool

Everyone, especially the high class, were settled in their place in society. There was no changing it
