Editorial Reviews

Review

"This volume is a distinguished addition to a superb series. Richard Kelly's fine edition of Dickens's 'timeless classic' richly documents just how very timely this little book was, being the inspired and inspiring result of Dickens's passionately humanitarian response to the harshness and brutality with which the poor, especially children of the poor, were treated in the England of 1843. In his substantial introduction, supplemented by a well-chosen selection of contemporary writings, Professor Kelly also demonstrates another notable aspect of the work's timeliness by situating it in the context of the great revival of traditional Christmas festivities going on during the first half of the nineteenth century." - Michael Slater, Birkbeck College, University of London --Michael Slater, Birkbeck College, University of London

I reread this anytime I feel like revisiting Mr. Scrooge and need to feel hopeful about the human race. This means I read it often.

I ordered another "unabridged and fully illustrated" hard copy with a cover illustration of Scrooge sitting up in his canopied bed looking very afraid. The story is a classic and I'm glad I could buy a newly published version (of the original) to replace a raggedy old copy.

I know there are criticisms of other book versions of being edited/abridged. I'm not an expert but I'll take their word that this version is UNABRIDGED. Aside from that this is a must read if you love a classic story told by a classic storyteller.

This is something every person should read. Yes, the movie versions are great (My favorite is the George C. Scott version), but there is nothing like reading every word as Dickens meant it to be.

More About the Author

One of the grand masters of Victorian literature, 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.
