Wu Sunfu and Darnay



The two characters, Wu Sunfu in Midnight and Darnay in A Tale of Two Cities are the typical representatives of Chinese and British gentleman respectively. The authors of these two books use the similar perspective and attitude, showing the complex images of the two gentlemen, different from other traditional ones. Two writers who live in the period of social transformation, experienced the time of change, so the image of gentlemen they shape is the literature expression of contradiction in writers’ inner world.
