“A national benefit and to every man or woman who reads it, a personal kindness.” --William Makepeace Thackeray The Western world typically thinks of Christmas as having a singular origin, away in a manger, but when you look at how the holiday is celebrated today, it’s hard to see a more powerful progenitor than Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol. First published on December 17, 1843 as a novella, the story bestowed on Christmas its rich and complicated social character. Ebenezer’s epic Christmas Eve illustrates both the joy to be found in friends, family, and festive gatherings... and the dangers of letting such happiness and privilege blind you to the lives of the less fortunate. The story is a product of its time, a response to the ills of Victorian-era industrialization and the desire for tradition, but you only need to look at how varied the adaptations of A Christmas Carol have become--on stage, in film, and in song--to know that it is truly timeless. This exclusive edition of A Christmas Carol in Prose: Being a Ghost Story of Christmas is one adaptation not to miss. It is a scanned volume of the original novella--complete with original spooky title--enhanced with new illustrations and narration by artist and musician Jon Langford. Here Langford imagines the story as a stage production put on by a small West Yorkshire theater in 1916. Download it for free to see--and hear--each of the four ghosts as an early 20th century audience might have.

One of five beloved Christmas classics First published on December 19, 1843, A Christmas Carol was an instant classic: Londoners thronged to hear Dickens read it in person and bought out the first printing in days. Its reception was so ecstatic that it is credited with helping to revive interest among the Victorians in Christmas traditions, including caroling and holiday cards, as well as inciting an unexpected wave of charitable giving from Britain’s Industrial Age robber barons. Originally conceived as a pamphlet against exploitative capitalism before taking its current form, it has inspired dozens of theatrical and movie adaptions, and its characters, from Scrooge to Tiny Tim, are forever inscribed in our hearts and minds. Penguin Christmas Classics Give the gift of literature this Christmas. Penguin Christmas Classics honor the power of literature to keep on giving through the ages. The five volumes in the series are not only our most beloved Christmas tales, they also have given us much of what we love about the holiday itself. A Christmas Carol revived in Victorian England such Christmas hallmarks as the Christmas tree, holiday cards, and caroling. The Yuletide yarns of Anthony Trollope popularized throughout the British Empire and around the world the trappings of Christmas in London. The holiday tales of Louisa May Alcott shaped the ideal of an American Christmas. The Night Before Christmas brought forth some of our earliest Christmas traditions as passed down through folk tales. And The Nutcracker inspired the most famous ballet in history, one seen by millions in the twilight of every year.

'What was merry Christmas to Scrooge? Out upon merry Christmas! What good had it ever done to him?' Ebenezer Scrooge is a bad-tempered skinflint who hates Christmas and all it stands for, but a ghostly visitor foretells three apparitions who will thaw Scrooge's frozen heart. A Christmas Carol has gripped the public imagination since it was first published in 1843, and it is now as much a part of Christmas as mistletoe or plum pudding. This edition reprints the story alongside Dickens's four other Christmas Books: The Chimes, The Cricket on the Hearth, The Battle of Life, and The Haunted Man. All five stories show Dickens at his unpredictable best, jumbling together comedy and melodrama, genial romance and urgent social satire, in pursuit of his aim 'to awaken some loving and forbearing thoughts, never out of season in a Christian land'.

Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

Essay from the year 2011 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,0, University of Kent (School of English), course: Charles Dickens and Victorian England, language: English, abstract: Obwohl sich Charles Dickens zu Lebzeiten vehement gegen die Verfremdung von Märchen aussprach, enthalten seine eigenen Werke eine Vielzahl an Elementen aus jenem Genre. In "A Christmas Carol" dominieren diese Motive Elemente des Rationalen und machen die Erzählung somit zu einer Ghost Story, während Märchenelemente in "Great Expectations" in ihrer Funktion oder ihrer Erscheinung so verkehrt sind, dass sie den ironischen Fall des Protagonisten Pip vorrausdeuten. Nach einer kurzen Nennung der für dieses Essay wichtigen Merkmale von Märchen wird hier Dickens Verwendung von Märchenmotiven in "A Christmas Carol" und "Great Expectations" untersucht und verglichen.

Dickens's story of solitary miser Ebenezer Scrooge, who is taught the true meaning of Christmas by a series of ghostly visitors, has proved one of his most well-loved works. Ever since it was published in 1843 it has had an enduring influence on the way we think about the traditions of Christmas. Dickens's other Christmas writings collected here include 'The Story of the Goblins who Stole a Sexton', the short story from The Pickwick Papers on which A Christmas Carol was based; The Haunted Man, a tale of a man tormented by painful memories; along with shorter pieces, some drawn from the 'Christmas Stories' that Dickens wrote annually for his weekly journals. In all of them Dickens celebrates the season as one of geniality, charity and remembrance.

“Einmal, es war von allen guten Tagen im Jahr der beste, der Christabend, saß der alte Scrooge in seinem Kontor. Draußen war es schneidend kalt und neblig, und er konnte hören, wie die Leute im Hof, um sich zu erwärmen, prustend auf und nieder gingen, die Hände aneinanderschlugen und mit den Füßen stampften. Es hatte eben erst drei Uhr geschlagen, doch war es schon stockfinster. Den ganzen Tag über war es nicht hell geworden, und die Kerzen in den Fenstern der benachbarten Kontore flackerten wie rote Flecken auf der dicken braunen Luft. Der Nebel drang durch jede Spalte und durch jedes Schlüsselloch und war draußen so dick, daß die gegenüberliegenden Häuser des sehr kleinen Hofes wie ihre eigenen Geister aussahen.“ Die Erzählung “Eine Weihnachtsgeschichte“ (engl. A Christmas Carol) von Charles Dickens handelt vom Geldverleiher Ebenezer Scrooge, einem alten, mürrischen Geizhals, der in einer einzigen Nacht zunächst Besuch von seinem verstorbenen Teilhaber Jacob Marley und dann von drei weiteren Geistern erhält. Sie verhelfen ihm dazu, sein Leben zu ändern. Die Weihnachtserzählung ist eines der erfolgreichsten Werke von Charles Dickens. “A Christmas Carol“ erschien erstmals 1843.
