Sidney Carton’s Last Words | SMIC Perspectives
Before his death, Sidney Carton envisions Lucie and Darnay telling their son his “story, with a fair and faltering voice.” He achieves redemption when he goes to meet death, saying, “It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done” (Dickens 387).
Sidney Carton and the little seamstress rumble off
Sidney Carton achieves redemption at the end of the book. “It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done” (Dickens 387).
On second thought, David Tennant would make an excellent Sidney Carton. I don't really want another remake though. That is something that really bugs me, when there is movie adaptation of a book, for example; BBC's Pride and Prejudice that was wonderfully done,and then somebody feels the urge to do a remake ten years later that(in my opinion) was not half as good. So if a remake of A Tale of Two Cities is done, (with or without David Tennant) it had better be the best version yet or I will be upset.Sidney Carton, a young, debauched and dissolute English barrister defends a young French aristocrat Charles Darnay accused of treason in London. The two bear a striking resemblance to each other. Lucie Manette, a lovely young French girl and her father Dr. Manette, who had suffered under the atrocities of the nobility in France, now live a quiet life in London. Charles and Lucie are in love, but Sidney Carton also falls in love with her. Meanwhile in France, the storm of revolution is about to break. A wine store owner and Dr. Manette's former servant, Monsieur Defarge, leads the revolutionaries. His wife, Madame Defarge is a vicious woman who revels in cruelty. She too has suffered under the aristocratic regime and now seeks to destroy all those who persecuted her. Charles Darnay returns to Paris to rescue an old servant of his who has been captured by the revolutionaries. He is captured by the rebels and condemned to be executed by guillotine. The story then takes several dramatic twists and turns before reaching its final and most unexpected conclusion.Barnard, Fred.
