The Penguin English Library Edition of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
"Every idiot who goes around with 'Merry Christmas' on his lips, should be boiled with his own pudding"
Charles Dickens's tale of Ebenezer Scrooge, who is haunted by three spirits and learns the true meaning of Christmas has had, along with Dickens's other Christmas writings, a lasting and significant influence upon our ideas about the season as a time for celebration, charity and memory. The Penguin English Library - 100 editions of the best fiction in English, from the eighteenth century and the very first novels to the beginning of the First World War.
Charles Dickens (1812-70) had his first, astounding success with his first novel The Pickwick Papers and never looked back. In an extraordinarily full life he wrote, campaigned and spoke on a huge range of issues, and was involved in many of the key aspects of Victorian life, by turns cajoling, moving and irritating. He completed fourteen full-length novels and volume after volume of journalism. A Christmas Carol was met with instant success and has enjoyed enduring popularity, never going out of print since its publication in December 1843. The Pickwick Papers , Oliver Twist , Nicholas Nickleby , The Old Curiosity Shop , Barnaby Rudge , Martin Chuzzlewit , Dombey and Son , David Copperfield , Bleak House , Hard Times , Little Dorrit , A Tale of Two Cities , Great Expectations, Our Mutual Friend and The Mystery of Edwin Drood are also published in the Penguin English Library.
