These Are a Set of Ten "Higher Level Thinking" Questions from a Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
1) What is the eighteenth century view of the death penalty in England?
A: The death penalty is clearly favored by the majority in England. People gather as an event to see others be executed and guillotined. Even the courtrooms smell wretched from all the death that occurs. "But indeed, at that time, putting to death was a recipe much in vogue with all trades and professions..."
2) How does his description of Tellson's Bank suggest Dickens' characteristic of over-writing?
A: Dickens clearly over describes Tellson's bank by using multiple words that all imply the same idea (He was paid for every word he wrote.) He calls it "...very smell, very dark, very ugly, very incommodious." He then goes on to say it was "proud of its darkness" and that it "wanted no light." All of these statements imply the same atmosphere but Dickens rather then just leaving it at dark and ugly describes the scene using multiple words.
3) How do Jerry's boots constitute a mystery?
