A Tale of Two Cities (1859) is set against the backdrop of the French Revolution and the reign of terror that followed. The story takes us back and forth between London and Paris-the two cities-and revolves around the lives of Lucie Manette and Charles Darnay. Against the grim background of the guillotine, unfolds a tale of adventure and mystery, heroism and courage. We see the quintessential Dickens as he vividly portrays the trials and tribulations of the poor at the hands of the rich, before the Revolution and the mindless mayhem that follows it. This historical novel is unusual for Dickens, whose other major works are set in Victorian England.

Seminararbeit aus dem Jahr 1999 im Fachbereich Anglistik - Literatur, Note: sehr gut, Universitat Hamburg (Englisches Seminar), Veranstaltung: Seminar: Held und Antiheld in den Revolutionsromanen Charles Dickens, 12 Eintragungen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: "A Tale of two Cities" zeigt exemplarisch Charles Dickens Uberzeugung, dass die Voraussetzung fur die Beseitigung der Missstande und Bekampfung der Armut die Versohnung der Ober- und Unterschicht ist. Dabei ist das grosste Problem kein materielles, sondern ein ideelles: Die Einstellung zum Leben musse grundsatzlich erneuert werden - mehr Menschlichkeit anstatt Harte. Gleichzeitig ist die Welt Dickens in A Tale of Two Cities ein festgefahrenes, kategorisiertes System, welches der individuellen Auslebung von Menschlichkeit keinen Platz lasst. In dieser Hausarbeit wird untersucht, auf welche Weise die Figur Sidney Carton in A Tale of Two Cities von Charles Dickens dargestellt wird und welche Wirkungen und Bedeutungen dieses fur den Roman hat. Im ersten Teil beschaftige ich mich mit formalen Moglichkeiten der Charakterdarstellung in Bezug auf Sidney Carton, wobei ich mich auf literaturtheoretische Aspekte aus Narrative Fiction" von Shlomith Rimmon-Kenan berufe. Der Schwerpunkt liegt dabei darauf, Sidney Cartons Charakter so differenziert wie moglich zu analysieren und dabei Cartons Schwachen und Starken, sowie eine Erklarung seiner Verhaltensweise herauszuarbeiten. Im zweiten Teil befasse ich mich mit der Bedeutung Sidney Cartons fur die Aussage des Romans - speziell im Hinblick auf seinen Martyrertod. Ich beziehe mich dabei auf die allgemeine gesellschaftliche Lage der Zeit und zeige, inwiefern A Tale of Two Cities eine Kritik der politischen und sozialen Gegenwart Dickens ist: Die zunehmende Verelendung der Unterschicht gegenuber der vorsatzlichen Blindheit der Mittelschicht verscharft die Zweiteilung der Gesellschaft. Desweiteren untersuche ich den Roman auf eine supertemporale und allge"

When the starving French masses rise in hate to overthrow a corrupt and decadent government, both the guilty and innocent become victims of their frenzied anger. Soon nothing stands in the way of the chilling figure they enlist for their cause—La Guillotine—the new invention for efficiently chopping off heads. Charles Dickens' compelling portrait of the results of terror and treason, love and supreme sacrifice continues to captivate readers around the world. With Frank Muller's brilliant performance, unforgettable characters—the ever-knitting Madame Defarge, the lovely Lucie Manette, her broken father, the honorable Charles Darnay, and the sometimes scurrilous Sydney Carton—burst from the pages, full of life and passion. This novel provides a highly-charged examination of human suffering and human sacrifice. Private experience and public history, during the French Revolution.

This study investigates the problems translators encounter when rendering features of Dickens's style in A Tale of Two Cities into Arabic. Examples of these features are singled out and analyzed. Then, they are compared with their counterparts in published translations of the novel in Arabic. The comparisons depend on back translation to give non-readers of Arabic a clear idea about the similarities and differences between the source text and target one(s). The features under focus are sound effects, figurative language, humor, repetition, and the French element. The discussion dedicated to onomatopoeia, alliteration, and rhyme shows that there is no one-to-one correspondence between English and Arabic in reflecting these linguistic phenomena. Translators may resort to techniques like rewording or paraphrasing to convey their propositional content at the expense of their sound effects. Problems also arise when rendering figurative language into Arabic. Various images in the novel are substituted by different ones that convey similar meanings in Arabic. Some of them are deleted or reduced to their propositional content. In addition, footnotes are used to convey cultural aspects. Translating humor shows the role context plays in facilitating the translator's task. Techniques of translating humor conveyed via substandard English are noted. The researcher also discusses translating humor that depends on background knowledge that the target text readers may not be familiar with. Further translation issues are noticed when rendering repetition. Some linguistic asymmetries between English and Arabic make translators dispense with repetition and resort to synonymy, collocations, and constructions that fit in Arabic. More problems arise when rendering the French element in various names, titles, and what might be considered as literal translations of French speech. Throughout the discussion suggestions are made to bring about more adequate renderings. This study also discusses the novel as a metaphor of translating. Many aspects of the novel are comparable to the translation process. Relationships among various characters provide a perspective from which the relationship between authors, translators/readers, and text can be seen. Finally, the significance of some examples of inter-language communication in the novel is pointed out.
