Charles Dickens composed A Christmas Carol instead of releasing a political pamphlet titled “An Appeal to the People of England on behalf of the Poor Man’s Child.” This adaptation stays true to the original purpose of the narrative, which was to investigate an unfair socioeconomic system that rewards the wealthy while the majority of people struggle to achieve their most basic necessities. It demonstrates one’s ability to face their fears, broaden their outlook, and take action to help others.
A Christmas Carol was first published in 1843. It was written during the period when the British were exploring past Christmas traditions, including carols. The classic tale follows Ebenezer Scrooge, a miserable English businessman. “A squeezing, wrenching, grasping, scraping, clutching, covetous old sinner!” Ebenezer Scrooge was described in the book. He is visited by the ghost of Jacob Marley, his former business partner. The spirits of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come join their journey. When they leave, Ebenezer is transformed into a kinder, gentler man.
