"Oh! but he was a tight-fisted hand at the grindstone, Scrooge! a squeezing, wrenching, grasping, scraping, clutching, covetous, old sinner!" -First Stave
Despite its yuletide popularity, few have actually read this wonderful book about the saving of Ebenezer Scrooge. In this very short “carol in prose” there are both surprises—Dickens’s colorful descriptions and farcical sense humor are rarely translated to the screen—and the warmly familiar, characters such as Bob Cratchit, Nephew Fred, Jacob Marley, the ghosts, Fezziwig, Tiny Tim, and
Dickens’s throng of nameless, but memorable Londoners.
Written in the wake of the dehumanizing Industrial revolution, this
Canon Classic will be enjoyed by both those who have never heard the
story and by those who think they have. The Canon Classics series presents the most definitive works of Western literature in a colorful, well-crafted, and affordable way.
