In these five stories, Dickens celebrates the spirit of Christmas, sharing and charity, and denounces the social injustice that excludes the poor from this feast. It is a truculent portrait of everyday life and an unqualified condemnation of exploitation and misery. This social message, Dickens gives us gently, by the detour of the tale and the fantasy.
