A comparative study of Sydney Carton in Dickens novel A Tale of Two Cities and Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet in Shakespeares play Romeo and Juliet requires the reader to analyze various aspects that the transforming effect love can have on a personality As we study each character it is relatively easy to see that no matter how painful love can be it is usually to ones betterment to have experienced it Love affects each person differently Some become more introspective searching to better themselves for the sake of themselves or another Others do not recognize what they are lacking in their lives until they find love In either event it permanently redirects the course of ones life Or causes one to end it in some cases We see that all three characters learn to love themselves better to love others anew and in the end make the ultimate sacrifice for their love for another Point A Both authors illustrate well that a lack of love can have a profound effect on the behavior of a person Whether a person has never experienced love by fortune or by design the initial introduction of love into the personality can be intense Dickens introduces Sydney Carton to us immediately after a trial speaking to his client It is at this point that we get a glimpse of the character of Carton who smelled of port wine and did not appear to be quite sober Dickens 100 Carton is so disillusioned with his own life that he cant even like his client who looks like him Do you particularly like the man He muttered at his own image why should you particularly like a man who resembles you There is nothing in you to like Dickens 103 Romeo Montague is no less desultory but youth is his excuse while alcohol and lifelong disappointment are Cartons Shakespeare has Friar Lawrence state about Romeos multiple infatuations Young mens love
