Christmas Special 2017! Scrooge, Ghosts, Food, Tiny Tim. A real deep dive into the book that made Christmas……don’t miss it. Enjoy with a mince pie and something festive.

Covers

  • Why Dickens wrote it.
  • Finances.
  • Structure.
  • The text as a historical source.
  • Ghosts.
  • Economics.
  • Redemption.

Without Dickens, we wouldn’t have a lot of the modern emphasis on Christmas. He was a big part of the newly urbanised Victorians deciding to take a mid winter religious festival and turn it into a huge event. He gives us the idea of the communal big bash style Christmas. But underneath it all, is the chilling message from beyond the grave……uplift your fellow man or else!

 

As always, hope you enjoyed it. Please leave me a review on iTunes and do send me an email with any questions or comments. Merry Christmas to one and all.

Ok really enjoyed this Xmas episode and the very real link of old problems that still exist today in various guises. Would like an audio option of the book.
