A Dickensian Christmas Experience
Before I read the story I knew very little about Charles Dickens and had never read any of his books. My expectation was that it would be a very depressing book, so I was unprepared for the wonderful experience I was about to have.
Through Dickens use of descriptive language I felt I was in the squalor of Scrooges cold room as he counted his money ,I Could hear the bitterness in his voice as spoke to people and almost smell the dampness and cold around him. In the first paragraph Scrooge is described as “squeezing ,wrenching, grasping, scraping, clutching ,covetous ,old sinner!” In those few words I felt I already knew the character and I was compelled to read on and find out more about him.
The story took me on a journey with three different ghosts. The ghost of Christmas past takes Scrooge back to scenes from his childhood. This was a very lonely and sad time in his life and we see him begin to turn into a mean miserly man, the ghost of Christmas present is a giant of a man with a lifespan of one day .He shows Scrooge several current scenes of Christmas joy and goodwill and then shows him Bob Cratchet's crippled son, Tiny Tim who will die unless the future is changed. Finally Scrooge is visited by the silent black clad ghost of Christmas yet to come .He shows him a scene where a group of people are discussing someone’s death but Scrooge does not know this and does not recognise himself in the conversation . No one seems sad about it, in fact most people are rejoicing in his passing.In contrast Tiny Tim has also died and his family and friends are united in their sorrow. Scrooge realises that the scenes of the past cannot be changed but hopes he can change the scene of the future and vows to incorporate the lessons of the past and present into changing the future.
Scrooge wakes on Christmas morning and realises his adventure is over and he has been given a second chance. In addition to smiling and being friendly to everyone he brings a turkey to the Cratchits and makes a large donation to charity. Instead of a miserable Christmas alone in his cold damp room Scrooge spends the day with the Cratchits .
A Christmas Carol was a pleasure to read. It perfectly portrays the contrast between the warmth and Christmas feasts among the plenty, and the cold deprivation of the poorer people. This would be a lovely read at Christmas ,but I read it on a summers day in the garden and the experience was equally enjoyable.
Merry Christmas! Enjoy!
