Sample text

There is something vampiric about Dr. Manette’s re-found strength. Lucie is now rapidly fading, and so is her husband. Charles, most interestingly, finds himself slipping into the mentality that once possessed Dr. Manette when he was in prison. ” Just as Dr. Manette made shoes, so Charles paces up and down his cell, and recites mechanically the proportions of his room. ” One cannot live unless another dies; and one cannot grow powerful unless another weakens. “As my beloved child,” Manette tells Mr.

Perhaps he is driven by the disparaging comments of Mr. Stryver; Gabelle’s letter is addressed to the present Marquis St. Evrémonde, a name that Darnay abandoned long ago but, presumably, disclosed to Dr. Manette on his wedding day. Stryver unknowingly insults Darnay by calling the present marquis a coward, and Darnay sets out to save Gabelle; in doing so, he embarks on the journey to France that Defarge, years ago, hoped he would never undertake. 52 BOOK III: THE TRACK OF A STORM Even those who have never read A Tale of Two Cities are familiar with Darnay’s voyage, or at least its results.

Charles Darnay loves Lucie, and we can assume they are on track for marriage. Dr. Manette loves Lucie and likes Charles Darnay—though, truth be told, something about Darnay makes him afraid. ” Sidney Carton loves Lucie, but hopelessly. In fact, no one particularly likes Sidney; they put up with him because he saved Darnay. He may be a “jackal,” but not by choice. ” In short, he is a jackal by profession but not by nature; unlike the London and Paris masses, he is not sustained by blood and filth.
