''I am the Ghost of Christmas Present, '' said the Spirit. ''Look upon me!''

A celebration of Christmas, a tale of redemption and a critique on Victorian society, Dickens'' atmospheric novella follows the miserly, penny-pinching Ebenezer Scrooge who views Christmas as ''humbug''. It is only through a series of eerie, life-changing visits from the ghost of his deceased business partner Marley and the spirits of Christmas past, present and future that he begins to see the error of his ways. With heart-rending characters, rich imagery and evocative language, the message of A Christmas Carol remains as significant today as when it was first published.

Charles Dickens was born in 1812 and grew up in poverty. This experience influenced ''Oliver Twist'', the second of his fourteen major novels, which first appeared in 1837. When he died in 1870, he was buried in Poets'' Corner in Westminster Abbey as an indication of his huge popularity as a novelist, which endures to this day.
