A Tale of Two Cities (Wisehouse Classics - with original Illustrations by Phiz)

by Charles Dickens and Hablot Knight Browne

A TALE OF TWO CITIES (1859) is a novel by Charles Dickens, set in London and Paris before and during the French Revolution. The novel depicts the plight of the French peasantry demoralized by the French aristocracy in the years leading up to the revolution, the corresponding brutality demonstrated by the revolutionaries toward the former aristocrats in the early years of the revolution, and many unflattering social parallels with life in London during the same period. It follows the lives of several characters through these events. A Tale of Two Cities was published in weekly installments from April 1859 to November 1859 in Dickens's new literary periodical titled All the Year Round. All but three of Dickens's previous novels had appeared only as monthly installments. With sales of about 2...

by Ron Dawes

This saga follows the story of Elizabeth, a young British woman born and raised in Shanghai in the 1890s. At eighteen, she marries a young missionary who is assigned to East Africa and struggles to discover and enjoy her sexuality amid the expectations of decorum for a young British woman in the puritanical age of the Victorian era.

A MUSTARD SEED: The struggle for dignity and freedom in antebellum America

by Michael A. Smith

This three-act play takes place on a Virginia plantation, circa 1850. An intellectually gifted slave/inventor, Zeke, experiences hope, cruelty, love, despair, and — eventually — freedom. The circumstances of his life recreate the individual, social, economic and political issues that lead to the American Civil War. During his boyhood, Zeke was a houseboy in the mansion at Tabitha, and Master Jacob Vessey’s favorite slave — more like his experimental project. The liberal-minded Vessey treated all his black slaves with kindness and compassion. He cultivated Zeke’s exceptional intelligence and encouraged his insatiable appetite for learning, partly to demonstrate to his fellow plantation owners that African-Americans were humans capable of any achievement, and that antebellum ...
