January 21,1793 began a year long of pandemonium now known as the Reign of Terror caused by King Louis XVI’s poor ruling that landed the country in debt and starvation. Fueled by the need for change, Maximilien de Robespierre started a grand revolution that would demolish absolute monarchy in 1789. The execution of the aforementioned king marked the beginning of a period where public execution was standard and tranquility vanished, or the Reign of Terror. Threats against the country were insinuated which brought about malicious methods in an effort to exterminate the threats, which, like the country itself, revolutionized the French’s ideals. The Reign of Terror was not justified.
Through the use of the supernatural, as well as natural world, Dickens manages to employ a reason for change by arguing that greed is an inhumane tool of power utilised by the wealthy. Moreover, Dickens argues that generosity is a quality that is severely lacking throughout humanity, before concluding by reassuring his audience that change is achievable. Thus, it is a profound message throughout ‘A Christmas Carol’, that despite the doings of the Industrial Revolution, an assertive effort must be made to bring an end to the social injustice present in their

This also indicates that the citizens desired to change badly and that’s why they took this action and took an oath that they will make a new constitution. The third estate declared themselves as the national assembly. In conclusion, Louis XVI was the main cause of the French Revolution because all the causes link together for example, he didn’t lead the country properly this means that he didn’t help his people and was not definitely giving taxes out fairly because he put soo much taxes on the poor peasants and this caused the peasants to rebel against Louis by breaking into the Bastille and stealing everything, also demanding food from Louis because they did not have the money to by food for

Imagine having children compare a murderer to the person he/she has murdered. The novel A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens contains a story centered around England and France before, during, and after the French Revolution. Between these two important cities, many major events happen:relationships shatter, and love appears.

Charles Dickens’ A Tale of Two Cities tells a story of love, loss, and revenge during France’s Reign of Terror and, subsequently, the French Revolution. The novel follows a wide variety of characters from members of the privileged aristocracy to blood-thirsty peasants who call for the downfall of the First and Second Estates. One of these characters is Madame Defarge, the revolutionary wife of a wine shop owner, who carries obsession with vengeance for her family who was slain by the aristocracy many years ago. Though this longing for revenge and bloodshed is shown through some violent actions in the novel (as in the case of her actions during the Storming of the Bastille), this obsession is primarily expressed through the motif of knitting and the creation of her shawl of names. It also ties in strongly to the story of the Fates in Greek mythology and sets her up as an important and symbolic parallel to them throughout the course of the novel.
In 1731 Hogarth created the first of his modern moral works: A Harlot’s Progress. This follows the story of a young country girl, turned into a prostitute. It is a discriminating portrayal of the fatal nature of human vanity and blindness, however innocuous, in the face of ruthless economic and sexual forces. These paintings also show how climbing up the class system at a rapid pace will destroy human beings, and everyone surrounding them. Another famous painting which put William Hogarth on everyone radar was A Rake’s Progress.
