      Gothic literature, a genre that establishes an uneasy, mysterious mood through the use of remote, desolate settings, supernatural or macabre events, and violence, dominated much of fiction from the late eighteenth century through the end of the nineteenth century. Lorry's trip to France in Book I. Jerry Cruncher acts as a porter and messenger for the bank, and his son, who is also called Jerry, often accompanies him. He collects the Water of Life, but as he returns to the bottom, he finds that Naia has already died from his injury.

      Analysis Dickens depicts the venerable Tellson's Bank as being in the business of death. But with A Tale of Two Cities, Dickens was making a conscious decision to steer away from his trademark characters, in order to write a novel in shorter and more frequent installments than usual. The story is an epic tragedy, masterfully portraying the great hero with a tragic flaw, caught in an atmosphere of hatred and ruthlessness. Like many of the other characters in the novel, Jerry appears to have a secret. Violet is horrified but her father says he cannot go back on his word. Analysis Dickens uses the courtroom scene to vilify the British legal system, with the Old Bailey embodying the uncompromising harshness of the law.

      Manette is incarcerated in the Bastille for eighteen years without trial. In typical Dickensian manner, this project of discovery happens bit by bit: secrets emerge only very slowly. Lorry, Jerry makes his way into the crowded courtroom. Described as dark, ugly, and cramped, Tellson's boasts an atmosphere of deliberate grimness and decay.

He remained keenly aware of what his reading public wanted and, unlike most artists of his caliber, unapologetically admitted to aiming for the largest possible readership. But the massacres, the bloodbaths, the Guillotine filled Dickens with horror, and in the latter half of the novel he shows how blood thirst kills every human instinct and noble ideal and replaces it with a destructive madness.
