Description

Ebenezer Scrooge refuses to accept that Christmas is a time for peace and goodwill to all men. While those less fortunate than him are charitable, Scrooge remains set in his curmudgeonly ways. One Christmas Eve, however, his outlook begins to change with a visit from the ghost of his deceased business partner, Jacob Marley. Marley’s ghost forewarns Scrooge of three other spirits who will come to haunt him that night—the ghosts of Christmas Past, Christmas Present, and Christmas Yet to Come. Accompanied by these, Scrooge is granted first a glimpse of his own past and then an insight into the home life of his poor yet loyal clerk, Bob Cratchit. Scrooge looks on with something approaching pity as the Cratchits gather around a paltry table to celebrate the festive season. Is the sight of others’ hardships, coupled with a dark vision of what the future may hold, enough to make Scrooge see the folly of his ways?



About the Author

Charles Dickens (1812–1870) was born in Landport, Portsmouth, England, the second of eight children in a family continually plagued by debt. A legacy brought release from the nightmare of debtors’ prison and child labor and afforded him a few years of formal schooling. He worked as an attorney’s clerk and newspaper reporter until his early writings brought him the amazing success that was to be his for the remainder of his life. He was the most popular English novelist of the Victorian era, and he remains popular, responsible for some of English literature’s most iconic characters.
