Chapter Thirty (A Tale of Two Cities)

CHAPTER 30

 58) Why do you think that the dressmaker was so grateful to Carton?

Carton’s sacrifice was of great strength to her, and she felt that heaven had sent him to make her own journey to the guillotine easier than it otherwise would have been.

59) What promise had Carton previously made to Lucie, which was fulfilled when he lost his head?

He had earlier promised her that ‘I am ready to give my life for a life you love’.

60) Why was Carton so peaceful at the end?

He knew that the time of evil was passing. His friends would all live happily in London. When Lucie has a son, he will be named after Carton and that boy will have the chance to live the life that he, Carton, wanted to live but was unable to live due to his own tragic character flaw. Finally, he knew that it was a ‘far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to than I have ever known.’
