11. Motif 2: Shadow Tale

A Tale of Two Cities

Charles Dickens, 1859
Famous for: A bloody cask of wine, dozens of rolling heads, and TWO of just about everything important.

Oh, Dickens. You really couldn’t resist throwing a little Victorian melodrama into A Tale of Two Cities, could you? Like that scene in Book 3, Chapter 3–the one with the oh-so-threatening shadow? Yeah, a bit much for us modern types. But we’ll forgive you because it makes your second motif–shadows–that much more obvious.
