With an Introduction and Notes by Peter Merchant, Principal Lecturer in English, Canterbury Christ Church University College. Illustrations by Hablot K. Browne (Phiz). 'A Tale of Two Cities' (1859), Dickens' greatest historical novel, traces the private lives of a group of people caught up in the cataclysm of the French Revolution and the Terror. Dickens based his historical detail on Carlyle's great work The French Revolution and also on his own observations and investigations during numerous visits to Paris. "The best story I have written" was Dickens' own verdict on 'A Tale of Two Cities', and the reader is unlikely to disagree with this judgement of a story which combines historical fact with the author's unsurpassed genius for poignant tales of human suffering, self-sacrifice, and redemption. AUTHOR: When 'The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club', his first novel, was published, Charles Dickens (1812-1870) was just twenty-four. Published, like most of his books, in weekly instalments, it started him on a path to fame, wealth and international acclaim. Widely considered to be a literary genius second only to Shakespeare, Dickens' works, such as 'Great Expectations' and 'A Christmas Carol', remain as popular as ever.
