  • Personification- Here The revolution is being portrayed as if it is running fearfully wild, giving an idea human characteristics. Significance-This shows how the revolution has become uncontainable and unstoppable in France“….and he even saw himself in the illusion with some influences to guide this revolution which is running so fearfully wild” page 245
  • Allusion-Here the passage makes a reference to a famous catholic prayer. Significance- This is telling the reader that after Monseigneur had created this huge mess he realized its evil and disassociated with it.“Monseigneur after boldly reading the lords prayer backwards for a great number of year and performing other potent spells for compelling the evil one, no sooner beheld in his terrors and took to his noble heels.” page 236

“Yes like a mariner in the old story, the winds and the streams have driven him within the influences of the loadstone rock , and it was drawing him to itself, and he must go”

Shows how Darnay really doest want to go but feels this natural almost mystical urge that draws him back
