Ebenezer Scrooge, arido e spilorcio finanziere londinese, odia il Natale. Lo considera - anzi - tempo perso, e un ostacolo al proprio arricchimento. Ma la notte della Vigilia, dopo una giornata passata alla scrivania senza nulla concedere all'atmosfera festosa che lo circonda, riceve la visita di tre spiriti: quello del Natale passato, quello del Natale presente e quello del Natale futuro. Nel corso di un fantastico viaggio che farà rivivere a Scrooge tutte le tappe della propria vita e intravedere un ben misero futuro, gli spiriti riusciranno ad aprire i suoi occhi a sentimenti di generosità e amore. Il Canto di Natale non è però solo una favola a lieto fine. È anche uno degli esempi meglio riusciti di critica sociale di Dickens, oltre che una delle più famose e commoventi storie sul Natale.

What a fantastic story! How terrible it was to be poor in the Victorian Era. Dickens was a humanitarian and saw first hand the poverty in the streets of London. The starving urchins trying to steal an apple or a handkerchief. The void between the rich and the poor. This story, like Oliver Twist i... Leggi tutto

This was a reread for me and it needs no introduction. The perfect read at Christmas time and I love it!
Ebenezer Scrooge, the very definition of grumpy miserliness, gets a second chance at figuring out what's really important in life, with the help of some ghosts who give him an unforgettable version of "This is Your Life." This may not be a perfect piece of literature - there are a few places where... Leggi tutto
