Så här tänker jag mig Charles Dickens
Försjunken i drömmar... där alla hans karaktärer framträder- klart och tydligt. Målningen gjord av Robert William Buss (1804-1875).
"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way – in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only. "
Detta är nog en av de mäktigaste av alla inledningar... (A Tale of Two Cities) 1859.
