A Tale of Two Cities

A Tale of Two Cities (1859) is a novel by Charles Dickens, set in London and Paris before and during the French Revolution. With well over 200 million copies sold, it ranks amongst the most famous works in the history of literary fiction. The novel depicts the plight of the French peasantry demoralised by the French aristocracy in the years leading up to the revolution, the corresponding brutality demonstrated by the revolutionaries toward the former aristocrats in the early years of the revolution, and many unflattering social parallels with life in London during the same time period. It follows the lives of several characters through these events. The 45-chapter novel was published in 31 weekly instalments in Dickens’s new literary periodical titled All the Year Round. From April 1859 to November 1859, Dickens also republished the chapters as eight monthly sections in green covers. All but three of Dickens’s previous novels had appeared only as monthly instalments. The first weekly instalment of A Tale of Two Cities ran in the first issue of All the Year Round on 30 April 1859. The last ran thirty weeks later, on 26 November.

Why do you think Trump was consistently referred to as a “dictator” or “tyrant” etc by the media and others  throughout his presidency ? Despite having not taken the United States to war like many of his predecessors? πŸ€” 

Do you think that much of it had to do with how “tactlessly” he conducted himself or do you think that he was often targeted because he was simply nothing like all of the others, thus garnering him hate along the way ? 

Does it matter that he didn’t take the USA πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ to war or are all or the vast majority of the wars that we engage in necessary and warranted ?πŸ‘‡Feel free to reply below πŸ‘‡All comments are welcome πŸ‘‡
