"A Christmas Carol and Other Christmas Stories" brings together all five Christmas books that Charles Dickens wrote between 1843 and 1848. In addition to the title tale – one of Dickens's best-known works and a beloved classic of nineteenth century literature – it includes "The Chimes," "The Cricket on the Hearth," "The Battle of Life," and "The Haunted Man" – stories that Dickens hoped would, as he wrote, "awaken some loving and forebearing thoughts" in his readers. Through these immensely popular tales Dickens's name became synonymous, in the minds of his audience, with the warm tidings of the Christmas season.
This volume also collects another sixteen stories, three written in collaboration with Wilkie Collins, and all published in the Christmas issues of the two magazines Dickens edited between 1850 and 1870, Household Words and All the Year Round. These works also celebrate the virtues of home, hearth, and holiday cheer.
