Katherine So, I was just wondering, but on the Dover Thrift Edition of A Tale of Two Cities, is it portraying Carton and the Seamstress before they go to the Guillotine? (view spoiler)Before I ever read the book at all, I had thought that it would be the two main characters or something, such as Charles and Lucie, but it doesn't seem that way? Just curious what others thought it was portraying.

Glory I don't care for that painting myself, but I think you're right about who it represents. It's definitely Carton and the Seamstress. Yes, the two of them do hold hands and kiss in the end.

Katherine Yeah I thought it was, thanks for replying. I'm not much of a big fan either, of the cover art.
