Mr. Darnay, you should know very well that the only person worthy of Ladybird's permanent presence is my brother, Solomon! #Miss Pross
Ms. Pross, you should know very well that the only person whom your "Ladybird" has decided worthy of her permanent presence is myself; I believe it would be better for everybody to drop this idea altogether.
Charles, you are kind of heart, but your arrogance is blinding. I realize that Lucie has chosen you; for that you are a lucky man. However, your harsh tone is much undesired and undeserved by anyone. Your seeming "perfection" is tainted by your nobility and lack of depth. I find you to be a very kind person, but I have a hard time respecting you without your having adversity. I also even agree with your point; it seems Ms. Pross is making a rather vain point. Nonetheless, you do not deserve to be high and mighty whatsoever.
I have not met Charles Darney personally, so I do not know what he is all about. It is an interesting name, yet I do not know about him. Please, tell me, who is he? What is he like in your eyes? Please tell me, I want to further my knowledge, most of which was given to me by an abbe named Faria in the Chateau d'If. Don't tell the police that I have escaped. I don't like the guillotine. I have seen men killed by it before and it is unpleasant. But please tell me what this man is like. I would like to get to know him. @AnyoneThatKnowsAboutCharlesDarney
He is the french aristocracy that goes to work for doctor mannette.
Well, Mr. Darnay is a young man that was accused of treason against England, but was acquitted of his crimes to the surprise of the public. It was simply a matter of business! #Mr. Jarvis Lorry
He is an evil aristocrat who deserves to be killed. If he ever comes back to France I will swear on my life that I will see him to the guillotine and to see him die. #Madame Defarge
Mr. Darnay is an alleged spy for france who was convicted of treason and put on trial. He was aqutted due to the uncanny similarity between him and mr Sydney Carton. I would not wish prison life upon anyone. it can drive a person mad.
Is this the man that I have heard of on the streets of Paris, that has been wrongly imprisoned? Or is this a man that has been imprisoned for the right reasons?
I agree - the wrongful imprisonment can drive men mad. I however am dedicated to the studies. I use all of the time I have to dedicate myself as the scholar of the earth. And no, despite what everyone else says, I am NOT insane - I'm just immensely rich
I, good sir, am a Frenchman by birth who is seeking resurection. I have left my life behind in my home country because I do not agree with the morals my ancestors used in their positions. I want a new start, a clean slate, unstained by the brutality synomous with my family's name. I set out for England because I seek a second chance. I seek to begin anew; to be recalled to life.
Mr. Darnay, I wish you and my daughter well on your marriage. Let me just tell you this one thing, I really hope that you find something that will always remind you of your beloved. I can tell you that from experience, as people are not here forever.
by the way, for the above post. @Charles_Darnay #Dr. Manette
Mr. Darnay, I would first like to congratulations on your recent engagement and bid that your life together be fruitful, but unfortunately I have mre solemn matters to discuss at the moment. As you are likely aware, not too long ago the man who testified against yourself while fighting charge of treason has recently been convicted by letter de cachet on charge of perjury and executed by hanging. I was present on the day of his funeral and thought you would like to be informed that his body was treated gruesomely by a mob and later that night his grave was disturbed. I know not your disposition concerning the man at present, but if you would like to question further as to his current state, feel free to have me as your object of inquiry.
Excuse the error, if you would, that I meant to say 'I have more solemn matters' than what I did indeed report previously. I hope this may clear any potential confusion.
I would also like to congratulate you on your engagement to Lucie. I hope you and her love each other. I would do anything for Lucie and I hope you would do the same to protect her.
I can not wait to marry you. You are so great to me. I can not wait to spend the rest of my life with you. I love you.
My darling I wish you would slow down a bit though he is a charming and pleasant man try not to take it so fast my dear. Okay?
Lucie, my love, in my heart I feel a great live for you and know I must keep you safe from whatever may come between us. # Charles Darnay
@ChuckDarnay Charles, i would be honored for you to marry my daughter. by the way, do not tell me what your real name is until after you are married #iamthedoctorM
As long as my father approves, I woud love to marry you. We shall live a long life together and will be happy while living it.
Charles, I wish you the best of luck in your new marriage with my daughter. I believe you are suitable gentleman for her and I hope you choose to devote your time and love to her.
Charles, as you are aware of, I also have a great and true love for Lucie. Although, my only wish is for her to be happy, and I will do my best to support the two of you. She will never love a hopeless man such as myself, but I will still do anything for her, even if it endangers my life. Please forget any rash feelings I may have shown to you, as I only want to be your friend and support you and Lucie.
I know the revolution must be hard for you, being the nephew of the Marquis after all. I hope it will not give you a terrible marriage with Miss Manette. I wish the best of luck to you and your wife. You were smart to leave France, because if you had not, you would probably have been killed by the rebels. Also the mob that mistreated his body would probably mistreat yours (assuming the rebels killed you). Just remember, reveal your namesake to no one, for there are those who would do anything to destroy the French nobility. Also never return to France, for there are probably those who still think you are guilty of treason. If you ever feel threatened and need a protection, just call on me, and I will be there.
Mr. Darnay, while you are a recently engaged man, it is fairly obvious to all that a revolution is coming and you will have to pick a side as to where your true loyalties lie. I have discussed this matter with my associate, Mr. Lorry, and agree with his opinion which is this: you ought to at all costs protect your new wife, even if it means that you sacrifice yourself in the process. A time is coming when men will leave their homes, never to return, so that those they leave behind might live in freedom, and, my dear Charles, while the battlefront of war in the revolution will be great, it will be like a skirmish in comparison to the importance of protecting your wife and her family.
I understand that you have affections for Miss Lucie. However, let me speak, that my brother, Solomon will surley be the better candidate. #Miss Pross
Alas, i have morose feelings about the death of my uncle! On the contrary, i believe the poor soul was overdue since his cruel actions against his people. Who is the Marquis, now? #CharlesDarnay
In my opinion, the man deserved to die! Immoral aristocratic! What monster would run over a poor young boy only to furthur insult the father! Rebellion is in the air! We will rise against the tyranny of our governmental system and create a new. Let freedom rise! You should not be around when we fight the aristocracy. For you may be in danger shortly...
*silently clacking together knitting needles while knitting*
I agree. Let him die! All he did was simply toss a mere coin for the passing of my son!!!!! Let him die!! He deserves it!
While clearly, I am not happy at the death of my poor boy, I find it is better for him in death rather than in such a place where a man is so cruel as to run over any child he chooses, and where revolution is so thick in the air.
I am afraid to say it is now you. Those feelings of hatred directed towards your uncle will now be on a steady path towards you.
It feels as if the revolution and this love triangle are all just a neverending GAME. We are all just simple pawns in a complicated game of bloodshed and rebellion. We could be winning or losing the game, but we have no idea and it does not matter because the game will be over soon.
Or maybe it is a never ending one? Perhaps there will always be a game of rebellion and heartache?
Charles, I don't want to believe that... I can't believe that... becaise the moment we start, that's when it ends, this journey or this game or whatever it is. We won't know what this is until it's over, which is why we have to keep playing for as long as we can... you understand, don't you?
Back off of Lucie you scoundrel! I have loved her always and forever. Nothing you do will ever change that fact. Just because she loves you and cares nothing for me does not give you the right to stop me from loving her. And when the day comes that she leaves you, I will be sure to make that fact clear and evident for the rest of your days. Since I have nothing else to say to the likes of you, Good Day Sir!
I am truly one with this idea for I fear that I shall not see the true victory of this gory and terrible battle. However, do not fear for the worst because I am positive that we will overcome our horrific oppression.
Heavens, my foolish and imprudent nephew, what an idiot you are! Here you stand, in riches and paradise but you desire to resent my views and bring shame to the Evremonde family! While still handsome and exquisitely poised, you may do great things to carry on our honorable family reputation. Accept your natural destiny and make me a gratified uncle. Do not dare to fail me, my boy. #marquisbeforehegotstabbed
Uncle, please do not be disappointed in me. I am only doing what I believe is best for our title. Everyone in France associates us with the words of ‘fear’ and ‘slavery’ and I do not want to be perceived as someone I truly am not. Our family has hurt numerous humans which I cannot bear to think of. Please comprehend my perception.
Mr. Darnay, your family has caused much suffering and has starved the peasants of Saint Antoine. If you dare to set foot in France again, we will kill you.
Mr. Darnay, I highly implore that you do not go to France, simply because it is too dangerous for you. The people there know of your relation to the Evremonde family, and you will surely be killed.
My dear Darnay,
I advise you to be carefull on your journey to Paris. Your relationship to the Marquis, your uncle, puts you in immediate danger. Although you have gone against my advice, I am glad you are brave to save Gabelle from death. Again, be careful for the aristocrats are getting their heads chopped off.
Thank you for contacting me Charles, but I really do wish you had not come. Nevertheless, you have done so already and I see no point in arguing about what should've been if there is still business to be taken care of on my account. I am currently rather preoccuppied right now with matters of Tellson's Bank, but I am sending my associate, Mr. Cruncher, to meet you at the bistro. He should arrive tonight and, my dear Charles, I impore you: be safe!
Mr. Darnay, my twin, it is you that is the cause of my lovelorness. But who can blame you, for you are the perfect man that I could never be, my greater in every aspect, and it is to you to whom Lucie's hand should go. How much grief you have caused me these past nights! As for your trip to France, well, that is a fools errand (Although I do look forward to the time with Lucie while you are away). I wish you Godspeed.
Where have you been? I have been waiting for you on this roof top. I am aware that you have arrived in town, so where are you?
It is people like you that give this world hope, Darnay. Those with compassion and mercy for those below them socially. I am thankful to people like you, am I had met you, I am sure you would be kind.
Dear Charles Darnay,
I know you cannot hear me, as I lie in this dusty and treachorous cell, I am longing for your help. I have always been trustworthy and loyal to you, and am asking you to do the same for me.
My dearest Charles,
I am truly sorry for all of the troubles that you are going through and am desperately trying to save you. However, your trials and all of the times that you have been arrested, are truly worrying me and hurting our family. Please try to live a better life.
You are an enemy of the people! You are the nephew of that vile Marquis Evremonde, and therefore must give your life to the people!
I denounce all of the acts that my uncle has committed against the people of France. I did not want to be associated with him, and I am a friend of the people.
From the way his family talks about him, this man is good at heart and would not profit at the expense of others. He is in no way an enemy.
Mr. Darnay, I am working to punish your accusors accordingly, because I know you are an honest man. I am going to help you avoid execution.
Charles, I am sorry to have denounced your family in the past, because it is causing so many terrible effects. Please forgive me. I did not intend any harm.
I wish you luck in your journey to Paris. For the sake of both Lucie and I, please stay safe, Darnay. I cannot bear to see Lucie's heartbreak if you were harmed.
I am so terribly sorry for what has happened to you, Charles. I never meant for you to be captured, but there are new rules since you were last in Paris. As an emmigrant, you had to be arrested as part one of those rules.
I am so terribly sorry to have discovered that you have been sent to La Force. My daughter is terribly worried, but I will do my best to help you. I am confident since I have been to prison myself that i can save you, or at least keep you alive. Also, your secret is safe with me.
My dear friend, I pray that La Force is treating you well. Shock engulfed your dear Lucie when you were arrested. Although a trial awaits you, we fear that you will not be acquitted unless God himself swoops down from the heavens and saves you. However, I have a plan...
I shall prove my innocence at the trial! My father-in-law and friend Gabelle shall be effective in getting me acquitted out of this insufferable dump.
Charles Dickens portrays Charles Darnay as being very hopeless. He uses a sad tone to show Darnay as mentally and emotionally defeated. Darnay says, "I shall never be better than I am. I shall sink lower, and be worse." Such writing unveils Dickens' attention to the tone of characters, and also shows the social line-up of the time period in A Tale Of Two Cities.
We all wanted to free you from jail so badly. I hid my sadness as well as I could. I could not stand the fact of my father seeing me in such pain, nor the thought of Little Lucie seeing me with a long face. While I longed for you and missed you sincerely, I held in my pain and tried to stay strong.
Oh dear Lucie, I know I will be out of here soon. Please try to be strong for me and for Little Lucie. Neither your father nor I want to see you living a life full of remorse.
(What role does the heroic figure play in the flow of order and chaos in the midst of revolution?) The sacrifice I will is to help my love Lucie. I have to make a sacrifice in the midst of chaos to help the one person who I love with all of my heart and all of my soul. #Carton
Charles Darnay, I have missed you since you have been in prison. It truly is not your home. It was very hard for me and Lucie to do well while we were without you. I met a wood-sawyer near the prison, and we would talk. It kept me company for a while, but it is great that you will be home. I love you Charles.
I can promise to you that I have never accused you of anything! I am truly in shock from this tragic misunderstanding. That judge must be out of sorts!
I hope you had a good life Darnay, because it is going to end soon. You will be punished for the wrongdoings of your family. The trial will be won by us, and you will be sent to jail. Good luck trying to think you will be fine.
Charles, I love you my son, the trial will be won by us, it will be alright. Lucie and I will be there to stand by you, and we will make sure that it turns out okay. I cannot wait to have you back home with my little Lucie.
Darnay, you will never get out of prison. This trial will be won by my side, not yours. You shall be kept in punishment for eternity, or death. Do not worry about Lucie and Dr. Manette, for you will never see them again, so there should not be any worrying happening.
Madame Defarge, I want to let you know that I will get Charles out of prison. I have great influence ever since my wrongful imprisonment, and my will shall overrule yours. Also, you do not know Darnay as I do. He is a great man, and you would know that if you were close to him. I would hate for him to die as he is innocent and because it would make Lucie rather distraught.
You can't keep me here much longer! These conditions are so inhumane! Is this what you are giving the name of our homeland! Imprisonment? Dear Lord, only if you were in my place you would understand the miserable and dark lifestyle I'm going through! #getmeout #weepweepweep
I wish only for a message to be sent to my wife from prison here in La Force. Doctor Manette has come to assist in my liberation, and I wish for you, Lucie, to know that I am fine.
Before you sentence me to death Madame Defarge I beg you to let me live. I say this not only coming from me but also coming from my dear wife and Father-in-law. Imagine what you life would be without your dear Earnest. Lucie and I also have a daughter and I want her to grow up with a loving father that will support her.
There is substantial evidence provided by your wife's father, Dr. Manette, that Charles Evremonde, called Darnay, is enemy of the Republic. He will rightfully be sentenced to death.
This notion is absurd! Dr. Manette has done no more wrong against the repulic than you or I! He is an innocent old man looking out for his family, there is no harm in that
Charles, have no fear. I know how awful imprisonment is but remain strong. These people here love me, and I will save you from all of this. I have got it all under control, but you must be patient. Lucie loves you and misses you very much.
Oh, Doctor, I wanted to thank you so much! You have gotten me through thick and thin with giving me your daughter, and I could never thank you enough!
My Ladybird has chosen you over all others. My brother is far superior to you and would be a better man. However, since this is the present situation you shall treat her well and try to be the man my brother is.
As my son-in-law, I do hope you keep my daughter happy. I will go to the ends of the earth to provide happiness for her. Getting arrested scares my dear Lucie to death, don't die on me! Your the man I feel is right for dear Lucie, don't fail me now!
Oh Charles! Hurry home to little Lucie and me! We miss you. Are you getting enough to eat and drink in the cell? Thank goodness my father is protecting you!
I can look after you. Since I am powerful here, I will be able to safely bring you home to your family, away from this prison. I have confidence in you and myself that all will go well.
What more can these Frenchman want from me? I gave up everything, my land, my money, my title and name. There is nothing more to ask. I have committed no crimes against them!
Dearest Darnay, I wish to tell you that I am ever more pleased with how you have dealt with the cards life has given you. From treating my daughter with love and respect, raising a beautiful family, and dealing with the aristocracy ordeal in France. We have grown so close in recent times through Ladybird and business matters. I love you my friend. #Dr.Manette
Everyday I stand, for two hours, hoping that maybe you catch a glimpse of me, and occasionally, our beautiful daughter. I just wish that I could hear your voice, and embrace you. Both of us need you here.
Mr. Darnay, your second imprisonment has been a great shock to us all. I was able to assist you to freedom the first time, and hope to do so once again. Rest your faith in me, my son.
i truly do love you charles
Do be safe at La Force! I am very worried and cannot wait to see you again!
My dearest Charles, I cannot believe you have been taken away from me again. You have been the only thing on my mind the moment we married and I'll be waiting to here your voice and see your face again.
After all our determination to free you from the clutches of the Revolution, you have been arrested again! How can this be possible? Even so, I am determined to break your shackles so we can be together once again. I will never let anything stand in my way, not even the Revolution. I have been standing outside your prison window, just visible from your cell. Hopefully, you will see me and gain new hope.
Oh, Charles, If only I could express in words how bewildered I am to have heard the news that I, your father-in-law, helped cause your incarceration. I am truly sorry for whatever I did to make the Defarges believe that I would denounce you.
I am bewildered also, and I forgive you for any misdoings you have done in the past. I am not an Evremonde any longer, I denounced that name many years ago. I am now your son-in-law; if you denounced the Evremonde name in the past, it no longer apples to me, as I am a Darnay.
My dearest, I cannot wait to finally be married to you. I have been waiting so long for you.
with deepest love,
Oh dear lucie, i wish I did not have to part again. There is no worse thing in the world. Trust me, I will see you again. I hope that you are safe. In fact, I know you are safe because you are with your father. He loves you so much and will only do something if it is in your favor.
Please hurry back soon. I do not how long I can stand it here before I go completely insane. I have a hard time trusting people, everyone seems so mysterious. Stay safe Charles.
Dear Charles, I would advise you too back off on Lucie. Although you are better than me in every aspect, I dislike you. You represent everything I cannot and will never be. The only thing left for me to salvage, a ray of light in my dark dreary life is Lucie - and you are about to take her away.
#SydneyCarton #drunk #inlove
How dare you, you drunken fool! Lucie is and has been my wife. She has already been taken. However, I do feel for you my good fellow. Fix yourself, I beg, so that you may become a better man!
Nothing, my friend, appears to be more pathetic than someone of your position attempting to intrude on Charles' wife. You are so drunk that you do not know what you say. Perhaps you should have taken Stryver's advice: find yourself a respectable woman with a bit of land. Lucie is not only too good for you, but she is also already taken. This is the ultimate insult and the ultimate pity at the same time. You are such a sad human being that you cannot even acquire a wife yourself. The barbarism of those who are not nobility is, to be honest, disgusting.
It is so dreadful you have been stuck in this prison. I promise, you son-in-law, I will do everything within my power to get you out of that prison alive!
Why would you choose to return to France when the guillotine was just invented? That was not very smart, for you were imprisoned at La Force in total isolation. Maybe you should make better choices.
Lucie! You have no idea how often I thought of you in prison. You gave me hope! Your father has been a great help throughout this whole situation. I love you dear. #charlesdarnay
Lucie how I was frightened when I was about to have my life ended. I was worried a great deal about you and how you would suffer in grief if I left you. Do forgive me lucie for the ways that I could have damaged your precious soul.
My love, how I long to hold you again. I have loved you since shortly after we met, and it has grown stronger with everyday that you have been gone. I refuse to believe that you have committed any crime or shameful act that has put you in such an awful predicament. Madame Defarge has had her sights set on your elimination for a long while I presume, because nothing could have led her to such an awful decision! I will always hope and pray that you will be released from that prison, and unharmed. I will be strong for our young daughter. We will reunite again. I send you all of my love.
@ Lucie Manette
Lucie I love you, because of your kind heart and even dearer nature. I am only a person who drinks and wastes my life in vain and I would hate for you to suffer forever with me. I don't know my own feelings they are bugs tangled in a web of self-understanding.
Dear Charles, please try to see me outside your window. The carpenter that works on that street corner has made many disturbing remarks. PLease try to endure your imprisonment. I am sure you will be free soon.
My sweet Lucie, I see you almost everyday, and that is the sole reason that I have been able to endure this cruel imprisonment.
Charles, rest assured; I will speak my every word to acquit you of this crime. The revolution is an unfortunate force. It is a shame that you, of all people, were put in its way. With my power and name, I will use my public opinion to help people realize just how good you really are. Alas, though, I cannot guarantee your safety. Eventually, it will be the public who decides your fate. In the meantime, I am working night and day to ensure your safety and, in turn, my daughter's well being.
My Dear Charles! How I miss you! It will all be alright, I assure you, endure your imprisonment as well as you can and I will see you on the outside once again.
My love next time you speek of Mr. Carton, please try and be kinder to him. I do not wish there to be any ill will in between you two.
It is outrageous that I returned to France to help a friend and then I am imprisoned "In Secret" for being an aristocrat. But at least my father in law is treated highly for his unjust imprisonment. #Darnay
I am sure that I am... exceedingly... happy... for... you......
#Tired of being alone
Farewell, Darnay. I hope that you can make Lucie happier than I did. Use my last gift to you as a means to start over, and honor me as the one with nothing to lose. I am glad that I am finally able to call upon you like this, "friend"...
