What the Dickens...



access to Charles Dickens' original manuscript of A Christmas Carol - "my own, and only manuscript of the book" - complete with crossings-out and rewrites.

The only thing more wondrous than being able to see and hold someone's thoughts is being able to see and examine a creative person's thought process.

Hat tip to Michael Leddy for the links.

totally agree! what a wonder, and perfect timing as you say. my favorite adaptation of this dark though joyful story is A Christmas Carol starring Albert Finney (outstanding musical version!).

Indeed ... what the Dickens! Btw, i have a winter anthem for your keen intellect and inspection over at FatScribe.

Jg.

I just love original manuscripts - and A Christmas Carol is my favourite Dickens :)
