A Tale of Two Cities; social classes!?

Question:I need to know what the role of social classes in a Tale of Two Cities(Charles Dickens) is. I have a very general idea, but not enough to have a well written essay. please help!

Answers:
You really should read the book. The role of social classes is as complex as the French Revolution. Comparing and contrasting two different things surround the whole book: London & Paris, Darnay & Carton, the nobility & the peasantry.

Like Charlie says in the first paragraph of the book:

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.

It's a brilliant book and you would be better for reading it.

That being said, good luck on finding that pre-written essay.
