Dickens is considered to be one of the greatest British writers of all times. He was a social activist who wrote plays and novels during the Victorian period. His most famous novels include Tale of Two Cities, Oliver Twist, and David Copperfield. Published in 1848 The Haunted Man and the Ghost's Bargain is the last of Dickens's Christmas novels. It is about the spirit of the holiday as much as about the holiday itself. Redlaw is a teacher of chemistry who often broods over wrongs done to him and grief from his past. A phantom twin of himself who offers to let Redlaw forget all the sorrows and wrongs in his life haunts Redlaw. Redlaw accepts the offer. Because he can no longer remember the grief in his life, he is overcome with anger that spreads to the families around him. The only one not affected by this is Milly. In the conclusion of the novel she offers this moral. "It is important to remember past sorrows and wrongs so that you can then forgive those responsible and, in doing so, unburden your soul and mature as a human being."

About the Author:

Charles Dickens's early childhood was happy until his father was imprisoned for debt. The 12-year-old Dickens then began working ten-hour days in a boot-blacking factory pasting labels on the jars of thick polish. The shocking conditions of the factory made a profound impression on him. His anger at his situation and at the conditions endured by working-class people became major themes in his fiction.
