Bad Blood in the Forest: The End of an Era

This is a story of a poor forestry community in England just after the war, as told semi-autobiographically by the author.

One might suppose that in the peace of the forest the workers would live a life of contentment. But their isolation and the never-changing band of men breeds mutual contempt in the end. This is heightened by one of the labourers, Gideon, joining the union and spreading his socialist ideas among the others, anathema to those who see nothing wrong with the old ways.

The forest bosses want the socialist out and need an excuse they can get past the union. It helps that Gideon is a drunk and a wife-beater and the story reaches a climax at the annual lunch for the workers given by the lord of the manor. A man dies, which seals Gideon's fate.

It is a graphic tale of the sharp class divisions that existed in Britain at that time, especially as they affected men like Gideon, but the author also finds time to describe his own infatuation with a lady of the forest .

A Tale of Two Cities

A Tale of Two Cities (1859) is a novel by Charles Dickens, set in London and Paris before and during the French Revolution. With well over 200 million copies sold, it ranks amongst the most famous works in the history of literary fiction. The novel depicts the plight of the French peasantry demoralised 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 time period. It follows the lives of several characters through these events. The 45-chapter novel was published in 31 weekly instalments in Dickens's new literary periodical titled All the Year Round. From April 1859 to November 1859, Dickens also republished the chapters as eight monthly sections in green covers. All but three of Dickens's previous novels had appeared only as monthly instalments. The first weekly instalment of A Tale of Two Cities ran in the first issue of All the Year Round on 30 April 1859. The last ran thirty weeks later, on 26 November.
