In the white landscape of Starkfield, red stands out, and she also stands out in Ethan’s life as well. Red is also the color of sin, the trademark color of the devil especially in New England. During this time the Puritan adulterers had to wear red and they did not believe in having more than one wife or loving more than one person.

Amanda Bagley English II Pre-AP 31 March 2011 Evil and Perfection in A Tale of Two Cities In Dickens’ A Tale of Two Cities, some believe that his exaggerated caricature of the characters Marquis Evremonde, Lucie Manette, and Madame Defarge take away the ability for the novel to have a sense of reality.

In the novel, the author conveys Marquis Evremonde as a purely evil character. He sees others that are less financially abundant as he “as if they had been mere rats [that had] come out of their holes” (Dickens 129).
