A Tale of Two Cities (1859) Charles Dickens (1812-1870) Dickens' purposes in using 'recalled to life.'
Although Dickens supported the ideals that the French Revolution stood for, such as winning the vote and no more outrageous taxes, he did not support the chaotic manner in which the French nation went about attaining this (by slaughtering thousands of innocent people because they were somehow related to the aristocracy). The fact that Dickens was in a quantity is obvious in the tale of Charles Darnay, a man who revoked his relation to the vicious, aristocratic family, the Evremonds, and how he is 'recalled' to his life as an Evremonde by Madame Defarge, an angered citizen who even tried to have a nine-year-old girl slaughtered, because she was the daughter of Darnay.
