The Shoemaker

Synopsis

The man making shoes works steadily at his bench. Aged and weakened by his long years in prison, he seems to be aware only of the task at hand — shoemaking — and does not even know that he has been released from prison. When asked his name, he responds, “One Hundred and Five, North Tower.”When Lucie approaches him, however, she seems familiar to him, especially after he compares her hair to two golden hairs that he kept tied in a cloth around his neck. He begins remembering Lucie’s mother and is confused and troubled when he hears Lucie’s voice, which sounds like her mother’s voice. Lucie embraces her father, comforting him as he begins to weep. Later, Monsieur Defarge helps Mr. Lorry and Lucie to remove Doctor Manette from the city. As the coach carrying Mr. Lorry, Lucie, and Doctor Manette rumbles to the ship that will take them back to England, Mr. Lorry can’t help looking at the man they have recovered and wondering if the Doctor will be able to be “recalled to life.”
