$12.00
Study Guide by Jeannie Buchholz, for the novel written by Charles Dickens (1812-1870) who in honor of his accomplishments is buried in the Poet's Corner of Westminster Abbey, England. "Recalled to life!" is the phrase running through the mind of Mr. Lorry, an agent of Tellson's Bank, as he travels from London to Dover in the year 1775. In Dover he meets young Lucie Manette, who after believing she was orphaned at the age of two, learns that her father is still alive. They travel on to France where they find Dr. Manette under the care of his former servant, Ernest Defarge, in the St. Antoine quarter of Paris. After being imprisoned in the Bastille for 18 years, Dr. Manette is in a pitiable mental state, and Miss Manette takes him back to London. Five years pass, and Dr. Manette has regained physical and mental vigor and has set up a medical practice. He and his daughter are called to testify against Charles Darnay, a Frenchman accused of treason due to his suspicious travels between France and England. But Darnay is acquitted when a witness admits that Darnay's close resemblance to Sydney Carton, a lawyer in the court room, makes positive identification impossible. Both Darnay and Carton are infatuated with the lovely Miss Manette. Because Carton sees himself as incapable of bettering himself, he does not feel worthy to ask Lucie to marry him. Darnay does marry Lucie, and imparts to her father the secret of his true identity. The shock of this discovery causes Dr. Manette to revert back to his deteriorated mental state while Lucie and Charles are away on their honeymoon. He recovers before their return with the assistance of their trusted friend Mr. Lorry, and their domestic life continues peacefully for many years. In France, however, the oppressed lower classes are preparing for revolution, and the DeFarges are in the midst of it. After the start of the Revolution, Darnay returns to France to aid an imprisoned former servant. Revealed as an aristocrat and emigrant, Darnay himself is imprisoned. Dr. Manette and Lucie follow Darnay to France. There they, Mr. Lorry, and Sydney Carton witness the ravages of the aftermath of the French Revolution as they struggle to gain Darnay's release. As Dickens so eloquently began the book, "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times . . . "

Study Guide by Andrew Clausen, for the 1961 Pulitzer Prize winning novel. Written by Harper Lee (1926- ) and published in 1960, To Kill a Mockingbird is her only novel. She grew up in the small town of Monroeville, Alabama, and drew upon many experiences and places that she knew as a child to create her novel's setting. In the sleepy southern town of Maycomb, Alabama, Scout Finch and her brother Jen revel in the glory days of childhood, trading stories and superstitiions with Dill Harris, the imaginative nephew of their neighbor. Dill is especially fascinated with the legends surrounding the mysterious Boo Radley, who stays in his house all day, but, according to rumors, comes out at night to dine on squirrels and cats and peek in windows. Their summer days are spent adding to the Boo Radley legends or devising ways to make Boo come out. As Scout becomes increasingly uneasy about playing games that revolve around Boo Radley, she is guided by the wisdom of her father, Atticus, and Calpurnia, their cook. Scout is learning the ways and unwritten rules of southern society and how to get along in it. Atticus is a lawyer with an extrememly difficult case on his hands. Tom Robinson, a black man, has been accused of raping a white girl. With deep-seated prejudice working against him, Atticus must prove his client's innocence. Scout and Jem watch while their otherwise civilized neighbors show subtle disapproval or outright distate for Atticus's defense of a black man. While Atticus struggles to do the right thing, Scout struggles with her Aunt Alexandra, who has come to live with them. Aunt Alexandra is set on making Scout into a refined southern lady by instilling in her the rules of social decorum. Atticus is more concerned that his children simply do what is right. Meanwhile, the trial of Tom Robinson reaches its conclusion, and tragedy befalls. All the while, Atticus is challenging the very structure of southern society and the prejudices around him.
