George Orwell and G K Chesterton for its realism, comedy, prose style, unique characterisations, and social criticism On the other hand, Oscar Wilde, Henry James, and Virginia Woolf complained of a lack of psychological depth, loose writing, and a vein of saccharine sentimentalism The term Dickensian is used to describe something that is reminiscent of Dickens and his writings, such as poor social conditions or comically repulsive characters.On 8 June 1870, Dickens suffered another stroke at his home after a full day s work on Edwin Drood.

    I read this every year at Christmas, and I always will do Simply because of the atmosphere it evokes This story is Christmas as far as I m concerned It wouldn t be the same without it It is perfectly festive and is also appropriately didactic It is an allegory for what happens to those that are unnecessarily bitter and twisted, refusing to take part in a joyful occasion It is a glimpse at what could happen to someone who rejects their family upon trivial grounds, and let s themselv...

    It has been a decade since I last read this classic, so I decided to look at it again, taking note of what I have forgotten or imperfectly remembered and also garnering any new insights my older and I hope wiser self could now find within it.But first, I decided to do a little research, and discovered the great irony underlying the book s creation how this tale that warns against miserliness was born because of Dickens acute need for money, and how its publication resulted in a dispute about the distribution of profits Dickens was already famous in 1843, but the sales of the recent installments of Martin Chuzzlewit were less than half of what he had received for the individual numbers of his previous novels His publishers Chapman and Hall were so alarmed that they invoked a clause in Dickens contract which demanded that they be reimbursed for the printing cost of the Chuzzlewit installments Dickens was alarmed too, but also hurt, offendedand worried A large mortgage payment would soon be due, and his wife had just given birth to their fifth child Still, he was convinced that his idea for a yuletide novella would yield an ample return and make up for the Chuzzlewit deficit He financed the sumptuous edition of A Christmas Carol himself colored plates, colored title page, gilt embossed front cover, gilt edged pages, etc and insisted that the price not exceed the sum of 5 shillings still ...

    What a fantastic story How terrible it was to be poor in the Victorian Era Dickens was a humanitarian and saw first hand the poverty in the streets of London The starving urchins trying to steal an apple or a handkerchief The void between the rich and the poor This story, like Oliver Twist in my opinion is a masterpiece.The musicals are just, brilliant Christmas is coming, we know its nearEvenings are darker, the cold weather is hereWill there be snow The sky is whiteOr have they been Chem Trailing All through the night Corporations love it Consume, buy, consume, buyTemptation, pretty colours, prices way too highWe know we can t afford it, so credit cards we useWhen ones child is surrounded by all these things, how could one refuse More and credit, people just don t seeIt s all a lure, to take your hard earned money The bank is in the red, cards no credit leftSpending money we have not got, it is all akin to theftWhen the party is over, it is a New YearReality hits home, and many are filled with fearAll the booze has gone, the cakes and turkey tooEverything purchased, has been used or consumedNot a pot to piss in, just a huge vacuumHung over, depressed, lots of work to do, back to the mundaneWas it ever...

    Ebenezer Scrooge, the very definition of grumpy miserliness, gets a second chance at figuring out what s really important in life, with the help of some ghosts who give him an unforgettable version of This is Your Life This may not be a perfect piece of literature there are a few places where Dickens goes off on tangential lines of thought that I thought would have been better left out but you know, it s actually amazing and really touching, the influence this classic novella has had on our culture I have to give it...

    im usually not a seasonal reader, but this year i tried to make an effort to read a couple of holiday themed books and im so glad i saved this for last i grew up very familiar with the story of a christmas carol via multiple adaptations shoutout to the flintstones version from my childhood , but i cant believe i never read the actual book itself dickens is such a well known author, so its difficult to not critique this as i normally would with a book but i think the message of this story is so important and should be the focus of this review i personally know how easy it is to get caught up in the hustle and bustle and materialism and stress that can surround the holiday season we fixate so much on sales and good deals and buying things to make us happy, that we can forget a loving word or spending quality time with those we care about are really what should be a priority we should...

    3.5 stars I shall start by introducing you to Ebenezer Scrooge According to the narrator, the cold hearted, unholy and inconsiderate man we have as main character.While he is described as such External heat and cold had little influence on Scrooge No warmth could warm, no wintry weather chill him No wind that blew was bitterer than he, no falling snow was intent upon its purpose, no pelting rain less open to entreaty Foul weather didn t know where to have him The heaviest rain, and snow, and hail, and sleet, could boast of the advantage over him in only one respect They often came down handsomely, and Scrooge never did Part of me was surprisingly not negatively thinking about the old man Some despised him, but I couldn t do such a thing, because he may have said hurtful things to people, but it s not like he ruined someone s life.He has some good in him, and I could see it from the start somehow Now I am not sure if this is all coming from my having viewed the movie prior to reading this, ...
