SCHIRM Publisher: ISBN: Category: Page: View: Boston Public Library Bulletin of the Public Library of the City of Boston Author : Boston Public Library Publisher: ISBN: Category: Boston Mass.
Page: View: Quarterly accession lists; beginning with Apr. He financed the sumptuous edition of A Christmas Carol himself—colored plates, colored title page, gilt embossed front cover, gilt-edged pages, etc.
Dickens waited eagerly for the money to roll in, but, although the sales were indeed phenomenal, Dickens gained little money from them.
Although the cost of producing the elegant volume must have cut deeply into the profits, Dickens was convinced Chapman and Hall were cheating him and he refused to do business with them for the next fifteen years.
But enough of money matters, for now! What follows are a few random observations on this, the latest of my many readings. Helps us see what hard, unrelenting old sinners Marley and his partner really are.
It consists of two principles: 1 taxpayers fund the poor houses and prisons, thereby discharging in full their obligation to all of their fellow human beings, and 2 death by starvation, although it may seem regrettable, is actually a positive good as proven by science because Malthus!
This philosophy is the shield that protects Scrooge from feeling the pains of sympathy and compassion. Say that his power lies in words and looks; in things so slight and insignificant that it is impossible to add and count them up: what then?
The happiness he gives, is quite as great as if it cost a fortune. Exception: employers who, in order to increase the volume of key strokes, forbid all family photographs and personal items in their data entry cubicles.
No, those guys should have to listen to the above passage on a loop, eight hours a day, for the rest of their lives.
There, Scrooge sees his former love happy in the recent past, a contented wife and mother surrounded by a whirlwind of children.
But the more I think about it, the more profound it seems, psychologically and spiritually. This, after all, is the pattern of every true conversion, the manner in which we grow in sympathy toward our fellow human beings: we reflect upon the emotionally charged sense impressions of the past, observe their consequences for good or ill manifested in the present, and then—on the basis of these observations—we make a decision to act in a new way, a way which draws us grow closer to love.
Certainly St. Augustine would have understood, for it was how he envisioned the Trinity, as a model of love in action: memory, understanding, and will.
Oh, speaking of how painful memories can inspire a person to action, I forgot to tell you the rest of the story about A Christmas Carol and money.
Parley's claimed they owed Dickens nothing because what they had published was not a piracy, but an "analytical condensation" of the tale, and, in addition, they had improved upon the original.
For example, in their version, Tiny Tim sings a song about a little child freezing in the snow. Now, here comes the good news: This painful experience so disillusioned Dickens with English civil law that he used it as his inspiration ten years later for what is arguably his finest, most mature creation, the masterpiece Bleak House.
So I guess Dickens gained something from the experience after all. On that high note, I will leave you. And God bless us, everyone!

Loved this story. The tale is as delightful as its messages are. Found the messages so touching. I have gotten so much empathy toward the characters that'll be hard to describe.
It'll break your heart, uplift your soul, and make you believe in the power of humanity and the human spirit.

Update on December 24, I listened to this on audio this time around; something a bit different for me. I enjoyed the narration quite a lot, but there's nothing that beats reading Dickens in print.
This story never fails to cheer, inspire, and give me pause to reflect on those things that I hold most dear in my life. Here's to a that will hopefully shine much brighter than !
Original review : When I think of Christmas and all those things that make Christmas so special, A Chris Update on December 24, I listened to this on audio this time around; something a bit different for me.
A Christmas Carol truly is a timeless classic and a beloved tradition, whether you see the movie or read the book. The message is there for anyone that celebrates life and family and giving to others, those who want to examine their life and make the most of it and share it with others.
So, if you have a morsel of time you can spare in the next couple of days, treat yourself to a well-deserved break and grab a copy of this book. As you journey into those Christmases of Past, Present, and Future with Ebenezer Scrooge, your heart will feel lighter and your spirit revived as you hopefully gear up for not simply the chaos of the holidays but also the gifts of love, fellowship and gratitude.
I wish for joy and peace for each and every one of you this holiday season and the coming year. I will live in the Past, the Present, and the Future.

One of my favourite books of all time. It's a beautiful reminder of the spirit of Christmas, what the holiday represents and how we can be more kind and mindful of our actions.

Probably too many times to count, but I can try: - A stage version at least half a dozen times - The Disney version with Scrooge McDuck - The Disney version with Jim Carrey - A Muppet Christmas Carol - Scrooged with Bill Murray - Probably more that I am forgetting Finally, I have taken it upon myself to read the source material!
Did I like it? Two words: BAH, HUMBUG! In Dickens-ese that means I did. I have enjoyed pretty much every adaptation I How many times have I seen a version of A Christmas Carol?
I have enjoyed pretty much every adaptation I have seen and, in general, they seem very close to the original story.
So, I have no complaints! One thing you will find with the book is that each ghost has one or two more scenes that they show Scrooge.
It seems like adapters of the book have generally agreed on which stories to leave out as I don't think I was familiar with any of the "new" tales.
Do you love Christmas stories? Adaptations of this story? I am not saying you should read this, I am saying you pretty much have to!

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. The sky is white Or have they been What a fantastic story! The sky is white Or have they been Chem- Trailing?
All through the night? Corporations love it! Consume, buy, consume, buy Temptation, pretty colours, prices way too high We know we can't afford it, so credit cards we use When ones child is surrounded by all these things, how could one refuse?
More and more credit, people just don't see It's all a lure, to take your hard earned money! The bank is in the red, cards no credit left Spending money we have not got, it is all akin to theft When the party is over, it is a New Year Reality hits home, and many are filled with fear All the booze has gone, the cakes and turkey too Everything purchased, has been used or consumed Not a pot to piss in, just a huge vacuum Hung over, depressed, lots of work to do, back to the mundane Was it ever worth it?
We all must be insane Not the CEO's though, happy they are Their bank accounts are bursting, and probably have a new expensive car The rest of us sadly, continue as before A working persons life, is really a chore Up early, commute, and work all bloody day Obey a boss, yes sir no sir, everything is OK Repeat it day in day out, for a pittance of pay Repetition, repetition, its like Ground Hog Day We pay our taxes, National Insurance too, Why?
Yet when we need benefits, or an operation, no matter how we try We never tick their boxes, computer says no! One is talking to a human but, they never show Any compassion, empathy or emotion, no semblance of care They are only doing their job, and the box has no tick in there One does not tick the box, one has no chance No matter whatsoever, one's circumstance Computer says no, the Beast see's no profit, even though one's contributions were paid in That's the Corporations, corpses, bleeding us dry, we are drowning NHS has no money, it is failing fast, what a damn cheek!
Remember this one growing up? Many new authors, and books galore For all tastes and ages, all what readers adore Let's start with a new story, leave behind Let's not forget the books we read though, we have expanded the mind.
Back then people knew their place. Now not so much. I have had experiences with these, authorities. Here is a little rant: How does one deal with a neighbour from hell?
My neighbour is vindictive, cunning, never sleeps Stands naked in his window, and gives my girl the creeps This man, this creep, who has ruined our lives, such pain I have had numerous breakdowns, he is making me insane Yet still, nothing, nothing is done, we are stunned He goes about his life, yet we are shunned What is this system?
We mean nothing, only he And we have ploughed everything we have, into our property Bought it from the council fifteen years ago Since that time, neighbours, to and fro We have had drunkards, criminals, drug addicts, and now this We feel the council took our money, now they are taking the piss!
Another neighbour complained, saw him warts and all As she was walking with her child, towards the school One hundred yards from our front door And he plays up downstairs, Porn, Hardcore!
We hear it frequently, and the authorities were told Dating back years, yet we are left out in the cold Finally this man has been arrested, the neighbour called the law, such luck Yet we have been telling them this for years, OMG!
So they took him away, and it put us at ease, he has gone the creep Maybe tonight, we will finally get some good earned sleep However, to our dismay, the Police brought him back, he is downstairs now I have this horrible feeling, something is not right somehow This man clearly needs supervision, yet here he is My brain is all scatty, I am all in a tiz I don't quite get, what the hell is going on How we have to put up with this phenomenon He called the Police on us for apparently bullying him, for our concerns for his welfare And at midnight that same day, we had quite a scare Two police officers banging on our door, in the late night No concern for our welfare, gave us quite a fright Enter our property, cos' he feels victimized, OMG!
Who scored? Which player? I am still smarting about PC Plod! The mind boggles. View all 10 comments. This was a reread for me and it needs no introduction.
The perfect read at Christmas time and I love it! View all 42 comments. 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.
I have to give it props for that, and that's what bumps my rating from 4 stars to 5. I found this when I went on a search to figure out what Treadmills had to do with England's treatment of the poor.
It was very instructive! God bless us every one! View all 39 comments. I wish a most UN-SCROOGY Christmas to all my GR Friends. With lots of: Merriment Christmas Love Generous and very Christmasy Gifts Copious and Delicious Food Not too much drinking Christmas Games Another watch of The Nutcracker And of course Fascinating and Beautiful Books And to remember what Scrooge learnt: I will live in the Past, the Present, and the Future!

Plot It is a simple tale of how a normal man turns cold-hearted and mean and how, when confronted with memories of his past and the possible outcomes of his actions and inactions, he is redeemed by making positive changes to his life and thus that of others.
Apart from the famous ghosts of Christmas Past, Christmas Present and Christmas Yet to Come , which were not unusual in literature of the time, it has time travel and parallel worlds, where each significant choice leads to a branching of reality, which is a staple of much great sci fi.
Not such a typical Victorian novel after all. There is humour too, such as observing that a coffin nail would be deader than the proverbial doornail.
So maybe part of the reason for leaving the name was a fondness for the memory of his friend and partner - a link to happier times. Certainly Scrooge had sunk to nasty depths, and maybe " It was all the same to him " reflects Scrooge's conscious and observable attitude, rather than the deeper, painful mix of happy and sad memories that he tried so hard to suppress, even though Scrooge would have denied it and believed his denial.
Charity is shown to be not merely financial, but personal too being pleasant, complimentary, thinking creatively about what to do. A counterpoint to that is that regret is pointless and self-indulgent: the way to overcome it is through reparation — which takes us back to charity.
Image : Scrooge by Quentin Blake for postage stamp Source Ghostly significance The ghostly visitors are not of the Christian kind, but ghost stories were popular in Victorian England.
Each ghost is very distinctive in appearance and manner. Christmas Weather and Traditions This story is perhaps almost as much part of collective British consciousness about Christmas as the nativity: the presence of snow, gifts, family - and turkey all feel an essential part of the festivities, possibly more so than when Dickens wrote it.
Apparently, snow features strongly in a Dickensian Christmas because of an unusual number of white Christmases in Dickens' childhood; for him, the two went together in his mind, if not always in his adult life.
Christian or Secular? The main message of Christianity is that no sinner is beyond salvation if they genuinely repent, and that is also the story of Scrooge.
There are other links too: three people profiting from the spoils of the dead man like the Roman soldiers at the cross, albeit they cast lots to decide who got what and Peter Cratchit reading from the Bible in Christmas yet to come.
In those days, religion was so much part of quotidian life for most people that it almost fades into the background at times, like having a wash.
Dickens had no need say the quotation is from the Bible or to talk about baby Jesus being part of Christmas because all his readers would know that and most of them would believe it.
In our secular times, perhaps that makes the story more powerful now than when it was written? Image : Bob Cratchitt and Tiny Tim by Quentin Blake for postage stamp Source Fresh insights - UPDATE I really enjoyed this minute podcast by a trio of twenty-somethings I know: Teaching My Cat to Read - A Christmas Carol Their lively and creative discussion views the story in ways I hadn't considered, demonstrating why it remains so relevant and enjoyable.
It also touches on Lord of the Rings, Beowulf, Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, The Hogfather, The Muppets or course , and capitalism and healthcare.
One aspect that especially resonated with me was that they kept coming back to the importance personal connections - something many of us miss acutely in this Christmas plagued by plague.
It's not just about charity and money. Scrooge wasn't always "Scrooge", but became that way because of unresolved hurt and trauma. Early on, three people reach out to him to embrace the spirit of the season.
He rebuffs them, so it falls to actual spirits. There's plenty more in the podcast Your request to send this item has been completed. APA 6th ed.
