5). In the courtroom, correspondingly, a whisper, gesture or look from Carton can impel Stryver to a lengthy and (by most standards) overly demonstrative performance, whose gist has been relayed to him in an instant: Stryver, so to speak, provides the echoes of which Carton’s insights are the original cause. Even in its most expansive moments, the expressive sympathies of A Tale lie with Carton’s nuanced, gestural communications, where much is expressed, or perhaps just implied, in a moment.
