The classic Christmas story of greed, cold-heartedness, and redemption. Scrooge is content with his life of work and petty self-interest--or he would be if he were content with anything. Scrooge begrudges anyone a morsel of joy or happiness even himself. That is until three Christmas spirits force him to see what his actions have done to himself and others, and reawaken him to the commandment, "Love your neighbor." A novel rich in literary technique. Setting: London, 1800s
