Dicken's most beloved story, "A Christmas Carol," is as much a part of Christmas as mistletoe and carolers. This heartwarming tale continues to stir in us the same feelings of repentance, forgiveness, and love that transformed Ebenezer Scrooge.

Review:

"A Christmas Carol] seems to be a national benefit, and to every man or woman who reads it a personal kindness." --William Makepeace Thackeray

About the Author:

Charles Dickens was born on February 7, 1812, in Landport, Portsea, England. He died in Kent on June 9, 1870. The second of eight children of a family continually plagued by debt, the young Dickens came to know not only hunger and privation, but also the horror of the infamous debtors' prison and the evils of child labor. A turn of fortune in the shape of a legacy brought release from the nightmare of prison and "slave" factories and afforded Dickens the opportunity of two years' formal schooling at Wellington House Academy. He worked as an attorney's clerk and newspaper reporter until his Sketches by Boz (1836) and The Pickwick Papers (1837) brought him the amazing and instant success that was to be his for the remainder of his life. In later years, the pressure of serial writing, editorial duties, lectures, and social commitments led to his separation from Catherine Hogarth after twenty-three years of marriage. It also hastened his death at the age of fifty-eight, when he was characteristically engaged in a multitude of work.

Humbug!" to sharing Tiny Tim's happy "God bless us, every one!" Dickens's other Christmas stories prove as rich as his most famous. "A Christmas Tree" describes a Victorian Christmas as seen through a child's delighted eyes.
