Carton's unspoken last thoughts are prophetic: . I see Barsad, and Cly, Defarge, The Vengeance [a lieutenant of Madame Defarge], the Juryman, the Judge, long ranks of the new oppressors who have risen on the destruction of the old, perishing by this retributive instrument, before it shall cease out of its present use. I see a beautiful city and a brilliant people rising from this abyss, and, in their struggles to be truly free, in their triumphs and defeats, through long years to come, I see the evil of this time and of the previous time of which this is the natural birth, gradually making expiation for itself and wearing out.
I see the lives for which I lay down my life, peaceful, useful, prosperous and happy, in that England which I shall see no more.

I see Her with a child upon her bosom, who bears my name. I see her father, aged and bent, but otherwise restored, and faithful to all men in his healing office, and at peace. I see the good old man [Lorry], so long their friend, in ten years' time enriching them with all he has, and passing tranquilly to his reward. I see that I hold a sanctuary in their hearts, and in the hearts of their descendants, generations hence. I see her, an old woman, weeping for me on the anniversary of this day. I see her and her husband, their course done, lying side by side in their last earthly bed, and I know that each was not more honoured and held sacred in the other's soul than I was in the souls of both.
I see that child who lay upon her bosom and who bore my name, a man winning his way up in that path of life which once was mine. I see him winning it so well, that my name is made illustrious there by the light of his. I see the blots I threw upon it, faded away. I see him, fore-most of just judges and honoured men, bringing a boy of my name, with a forehead that I know and golden hair, to this place—then fair to look upon, with not a trace of this day's disfigurement—and I hear him tell the child my story, with a tender and a faltering voice.
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. Dickens also used material from an account of imprisonment during the Terror by Beaumarchais, and records of the trial of a French spy published in The Annual Register. The chapter novel was published in 31 weekly instalments in Dickens' new literary periodical titled All the Year Round. From April to November , Dickens also republished the chapters as eight monthly sections in green covers.
All but three of Dickens' previous novels had appeared as monthly instalments prior to publication as books. The last ran 30 weeks later, on 26 November. A Tale of Two Cities has been cited as one of the best-selling novels of all time. Dickens uses literal translations of French idioms for characters who cannot speak English, such as "What the devil do you do in that galley there?!!
Borges quipped: "Dickens lived in London. In his book A Tale of Two Cities , based on the French Revolution, we see that he really could not write a tale of two cities. He was a resident of just one city: London. In Dickens' England, resurrection always sat firmly in a Christian context. Most broadly, Sydney Carton is resurrected in spirit at the novel's close even as he, paradoxically, gives up his physical life to save Darnay's.
More concretely, "Book the First" deals with the rebirth of Dr.
Manette from the living death of his incarceration. Resurrection appears for the first time when Mr. Lorry replies to the message carried by Jerry Cruncher with the words "Recalled to Life". Resurrection also appears during Mr. Lorry's coach ride to Dover, as he constantly ponders a hypothetical conversation with Dr.
Manette: "Buried how long? Manette's revival and imagines himself "digging" up Dr. Manette from his grave. Resurrection is a major theme in the novel. In Jarvis Lorry's thoughts of Dr. Manette, resurrection is first spotted as a theme. It is also the last theme: Carton's sacrifice.
