From the Paper:

"Set between 1775 and 1793 in London and Paris, the central theme of Charles Dickens’ A Tale of Two Cities is that those who are victimized long enough will rise up and rebel against their oppressors. This novel deals with life and anarchy during the early French Revolution. Other themes of this novel that become apparent by its end include the possibility of resurrection, the necessity of sacrifice, and the opposition between true revolution and the self-perpetuating violence of the revolutionaries."
