A Christmas Carol (1843)

The Hyper-Media Text of A Cristmas Carol

Please feel free to write anything you like for the Carol discussion. Your suggestion of any other theme with your comment on it is eagerly welcomed. I am willing to set up a new message board for you to discuss Carol with other Dickensians. Please do not hesitate to e-mail me at matsuoka@lang.nagoya-u.ac.jp. Carol was the most popular of Dickens's public readings, and I believe it remains in the canon of excellence for literature. Most of the famous passages in Carol must be capable of very wide interpretation. Thanks for entering the Carol discussion.
