“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.

Seminar paper from the year 2005 in the subject English - Pedagogy, Didactics, Literature Studies, grade: 1,7, http: //www.uni-jena.de/ (Institut fur Anglistik/Amerikanistik), course: Literaturvermittlung im Englischunterricht, language: English, abstract: While the traditional use of literature at schools usually relies on interpretation and the existence of a 'correct' way of interpreting the text, more recent theories like the aesthetics of reception focus on the dynamic interaction between the text and its readers, aiming at a type of aesthetic reading. Charles Dickens's novel of the miser Ebenezer Scrooge being visited by the three ghosts of Christmas and turning over to a new leaf is probably one of the best-known English novels; it is alluded to in many other pieces of literature, in films and even comics. This, banal as it may be, is already the first reason for choosing A Christmas Carol as a topic, since all the gags and allusions elsewhere would not be understood without some knowledge of Dickens's novel. Reading experiences also play an important role when it comes to motivation: other classic novels by Dickens like Oliver Twist, Great Expectations or David Copperfield, or their film adaptations may serve as a motivation for reading A Christmas Carol, or vice versa. Finally, apart from conveying a moral message, Dickens's story also portraits the Victorian age of Britain and its nuisances as vivid as only few other novels, which stays in mind far better than only hearing a report."
