Defarge now runs a wine-shop with his wife in the poverty-stricken quarter of Saint Antoine. Defarge takes Mr. Lorry and Lucie to the garret room where he is keeping Doctor Manette, warning them that the Doctor’s years in prison have greatly changed him. Thin and pale, Doctor Manette sits at a shoemaker’s bench intently making shoes. He barely responds to questions from Defarge and Mr. Lorry, but when Lucie approaches him, he remembers his wife and begins to weep. Lucie comforts him, and that night Mr. Lorry and Lucie take him to England.
He is then sentenced to death within twenty-four hours. Carton goes to visit Darnay in prison and convinces him to trade clothes with him. He then drugs Darnay and the guards thinking he is Carton escort Darney to a waiting carriage where he is taken safely away.
At Dover, Lorry is met by Lucie Manette, a young orphan whose father, a once-eminent doctor whom she supposed dead, has been discovered in France. Lucie is a pretty, blonde, young woman of compassionate nature and who inspires a lot of love and loyalty in other people. Lorry escorts Lucie to Paris, where they meet Defarge, a former servant of Doctor Manette, who has kept Manette safe in a garret. At this point, we are introduced to the first theme I found in this book; that the reality of death is ever-painful. The narrator states, “My friend is dead, my neighbour is dead, my love, the darling of my soul; is dead; it is inexorable consolidation.” Driven mad by eighteen years in the Bastille, Manette spends all of his time making shoes, a hobby he learned while in prison.
He begins to tell Lucie that she is not an orphan as she formerly believed but that her father, Doctor Manette, was in the Bastille in Paris and was just released. Monsieur Defarge, a former servant of Dr. Mannette, has been taking care of him after his release from prison. The doctor has lost some of his memory and spends a greats deal of time cobbling shoes, which is a skill he learned in prison. Lucie and Mr. Lorry take the doctor back to London, where Lucie nurses him back to health. Five year pass and Charles Darnay is being tried in London on a charge of treason for providing the French and Americans with the English’s secrets.
But, later she becomes desirous and in order to take King Duncan’s place he murders him. This was the turning point for him and he became a killing machine. Lady Macbeth started as a character of darkness; she yearned for power and did not want to express any emotion. Later on she became guilty and started sleep walking and she committed suicide. In the beginning of the play all of the murderers were committed with a sense of darkness.
As I was sitting home on a rainy day I watched the movie, The Shawshank Redemption that starred Tim Robbins as Andy and Morgan Freeman as Red. The movie is about a banker name Andy Dufresney who is sent to prison for murdering his wife and her lover that he claims he did not do. In prison Andy became friends with a black prisoner name Red. One day while in the laundry room Andy overheard one of the guards (Guard Hadley) talking about taxes on an inheritance he’s about to receive. Andy told guard Hadley how he could avoid paying so much in tax money.

Because of the great change in Carton, Darnay's life is spared.

Dr. Manette tries to stop it. The court case for Charles’s second trial goes very differently from the first one. Ernst Defarge produces a letter, written by Dr. Manette himself, which dooms Charles to death. Dr. Manette had written down the history of his own imprisonment and stowed it in a wall of the Bastille. The history tells a sordid tale of rape and murder, the crimes committed by Charles’s father and brother.

After he wrote the letter he knocked Charles Darnay out and the guards, thinking he is Sydney Carton take him out. The Manette family return to London and live happy lives.
