It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.... No one gives such drama and pathos to the French Revolution as Charles Dickens in A Tale of Two Cities. This remarkable story of human suffering and redemption is set in Paris and London at a time when the mob acts without thinking, violence is expressed in the courtroom, and nobility of character inspires heroism in both villain and worker. In this reading, distinguished actor Paul Scofield brings to life one of the great classics of all time, from the perfect prose in its opening to the closing passage when Sidney Carton goes peacefully to his death with, "It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to than I have ever known."
