Brighten the season with tales from the master of Christmastime fiction.
Most famous in the realm of holiday literature for his 1843 publication, A
Christmas Carol, Charles Dickens was in fact a prolific writer in the
yuletide genre and a great contributor to many now-prevalent traditions of
the holiday itself. In the year following the release of A Christmas Carol,
Dickens released The Chimes: A Christmas Story of Some Bells That Rang an
Old Year Out and a New Year In. This story combined his usual sympathy for
the poor with the notion that we must always strive to live in nobler ways.
In 1845 came The Cricket on the Hearth, a novella that, in its time,
surpassed even A Christmas Carol in popularity for stage productions. The
years 1846 and 1848 respectively saw published The Battle of Life and The
Haunted Man and the Ghost’s Bargain. Given this wealth of Christmas-themed
works, it is no wonder that Dickens is sometime referred to as “the man who
invented Christmas.” Perfect for both fans of Dickens’ work and those who
just find special pleasure in the holiday spirit, these five Christmas
stories are now available as part of the Word Cloud Classics series,
providing a chic, inexpensive introduction to timeless tales. About the
