Wordsworth Classics: A Christmas Carol Wordsworth Classics A Christmas Carol is the most famous, heart-warming and chilling festive story of them all. In these pages we meet Ebenezer Scrooge, whose name is synonymous with greed and parsimony: ‘Every idiot who goes about with “Merry Christmas” on his lips, should be boiled with his own pudding, and buried with a stake of holly through his heart’. This attitude is soon challenged when the ghost of his old partner, Jacob Marley, returns from the grave to haunt him on Christmas Eve. Scrooge is then visited in turn by three spirits of Christmas Past, Present and Future, each one revealing the error of his ways and gradually melting the frozen heart of this old miser, leading him towards his redemption. On the journey we take with Scrooge we encounter a rich array of Dickensian characters including the poor Cratchit family with the ailing Tiny Tim and the generous and jolly Fezziwig. When Charles Dickens wrote A Christmas Carol in 1843 he fashioned an enduring gift to the world, capturing the essence of the love, kindness and generosity of the Christmas season. It is a timeless classic and the story’s uplifting magic remains as potent today as when it was first published. Dickens’ masterful storytelling and vivid characters come to life in this timeless classic, which has captivated readers for generations. From the iconic miser Scrooge to the endearing Cratchit family, each character is richly drawn and imbued with depth and emotion, making “A Christmas Carol” a compelling and thought-provoking read for students of all ages. As a valuable addition to any school curriculum, “A Christmas Carol” offers rich themes for exploration and discussion, including compassion, generosity, and the true meaning of Christmas. With its accessible language and universal themes, this book provides an excellent opportunity for students to engage with classic literature and deepen their understanding of the human experience.
