Description
When a French doctor is imprisoned for eighteen years, he is released and united with his daughter, whom he has never met. The story of their life in London, and the conflict between her husband and the people who imprisoned her father, bring back ghosts from the past. Charles Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities is known for its opening sentence, but the novel raises questions that explore income inequality, globalization, and the fate of civil rights when a government dissolves, topics we still grapple with today. This volume explores the life and work of Charles Dickens, focusing particularly on the theme of class conflict in the novel, and includes viewpoints on class conflict and income inequality in the present day, including the role that technology plays in increasing income inequality and class conflict, and the generational nature of class conflict.
