This is why the guilt Mathilda's father imposes on her affects her concept of self later in life. Mathilda feels like something is wrong with herself that makes her father act in such an unstable manner. Probably the biggest piece of evidence is when her father tells her the reason he has been so sad and angry is because he loves her.

Now her dearest wish is to execute Lucie and her child as well, due to their relation to Darnay. Her husband argues with her: “ ‘And you have observed, my wife,’ said Defarge, in a deprecatory manner, ‘the anguish of his daughter, which must be a dreadful anguish to him!”(III.12.345). He disapproves of her extreme bloodlust and implores her to show pity to Doctor Manette and his family. Repeatedly he asks her to change her mind, to look past her prejudice towards the nobility. It is clear he is in favor of the revolution, as he is one of its leaders, but he
