THEME: Justice vs. Vengeance

Mob Violence and The Revolution

  • When is mob violence ever justified?

“The men were terrible, in the bloody-minded anger with which they looked from the windows, caught up what arms they had, and came pouring down into the streets”(Dickens 221).

Symbolism: Wine & Revolution

“… one tall joker so besmirched… scrawled upon a wall with his finger dipped in muddy wine-lees –BLOOD” (Dickens 32).

Symbolism: What does Madame Defarge’s Knitting look like?

Symbolism: The Golden Thread

Why is Lucie considered the Golden Thread?

Theme: Double, Duality

Lucie Manette

Madame Defarge

Character Analysis: Lucie Manette

“Ever busily winding, the golden thread that bound them all together, weaving the service of her happy influence through the tissue of all their lives, and making it predominate nowhere” (Dickens 208).

What is our opinion (inference) about her? How does this connect to symbolism?

Character Analysis: Madame Defarge

“Suddenly animated, she put her foot upon his neck, and with her cruel knife – long and ready – hewed off his head” (Dickens 217).
