Strongly Associated with:   Charles Dickens, David Copperfield, Bleak House, Great Expectations
Notes:
Some believe the character, Carton’s, sacrifice ("It’s a far, far better thing I do than I have ever done.") and presumed resurrection is symbolic of a resurrection to come from the ashes of the French Revolution.
