《雙城記》是狄更斯最重要的代表作之一,是狄更斯在47歲時發表的作品,是他遲暮之年的巔峰之作。早在創作《雙城記》之前很久,狄更斯就對法國大革命極為關注,反復研讀英國歷史學家卡萊爾的《法國革命史》和其他學者的有關著作。他對法國大革命的濃厚興趣發端于對當時英國潛伏著的嚴重的社會危機的擔憂。1854年底,他說:“我相信,不滿情緒像這樣冒煙比火燒起來還要壞得多,這特別像法國在第一次革命爆發前的公眾心理,這就有危險,由于千百種原因——如收成不好、貴族階級的專橫與無能把已經緊張的局面最后一次加緊、海外戰爭的失利、國內偶發事件等等——變成那次從未見過的一場可怕的大火。”可見,《雙城記》這部歷史小說的創作動機在于借古諷今,以法國大革命的歷史經驗為借鑒,給英國統治階級敲響警鐘;同時,通過對革命恐怖的極端描寫,也對心懷憤懣、希圖以暴力對抗暴政的人民群眾提出警告,幻想為社會矛盾日益加深的英國現狀尋找一條出路。

A Tale of Two Cities is one of only two works of historical fiction by Charles Dickens (the second being Barnaby Rudge ). It has fewer characters and sub-plots than a typical Dickens novel.[citation needed] Dickens relies much on The French Revolution: A History by Thomas Carlyle as a historical source. Dickens wrote in his Preface to Tale that "no one can hope to add anything to the philosophy of Mr. Carlyle's wonderful book".

本書是英國作家查爾斯·狄更斯所著的一部以法國大革命為背景所寫成的長篇歷史小說,情節感人肺腑,是世界文學經典名著之一,故事中將巴黎、倫敦兩個大城市連結起來,圍繞著曼馬內特醫生一家和以德法日夫婦為首的圣安東尼區展開故事。小說里描寫了貴族如何敗壞、如何殘害百姓,人民心中積壓對貴族的刻骨仇恨,導致了不可避免的法國大革命,本書的主要思想是為了愛而自我犧牲。書名中的“雙城”指的是巴黎與倫敦。

A Tale of Two Cities (1859) is a novel by Charles Dickens, set in London and Paris before and during the French Revolution. The novel depicts the plight of the French peasantry demoralized 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 period. It follows the lives of several characters through these events. A Tale of Two Cities was published in weekly installments from April 1859 to November 1859 in Dickens's new literary periodical titled All the Year Round. All but three of Dickens's previous novels had appeared only as monthly installments. With sales of about 200 million copies, A Tale of Two Cities is the biggest selling novel in history.

Charles John Huffam Dickens (7 February 1812 – 9 June 1870) was an English writer and social critic. He created some of the world's best-known fictional characters and is regarded as the greatest novelist of the Victorian era. His works enjoyed unprecedented popularity during his lifetime, and by the twentieth century critics and scholars had recognised him as a literary genius. His novels and short stories enjoy lasting popularity.

IT WAS the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way- in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.
