              A Christmas Carol
                

              A Christmas Carol (EPUB ebook – Main)

              By Dickens, Charles

              'Bah,'said Scrooge, 'Humbug.'But that was before he was presented with visions of Christmas Past, Christmas Present and Christmas Yet to Come, which gave him a whole new lease of life:'I am as light as a feather, I am as happy as an angel, I am as merry as a schoolboy. I am as gi...ddy as a drunken man. A merry Christmas to everybody! A happy New Year to all the World!'Old Ebenezer Scrooge is too mean to spend money on coals for the fire in his counting-house, where his clerk Bob Cratchit shivers in the winter cold.Declining an invitation to his nephew Fred's Christmas party, and refusing to give money to charity, he is ready for his usual miserly Christmas in his cold, dingy apartment. But that night, the ghost of his dead partner Jacob Marley appears, in chains, and tells him to expect a visit from three spirits over the next three nights. Sure enough, the Ghost of Christmas Past, Christmas Present and Christmas Yet to Come lead Scrooge through his early years, the meagre Christmas about to happen in Bob Cratchit's family and the jolly Christmas party at his nephew's home, and finally a vision of his own death as a wealthy but avaricious and unhappy miser.Waking from these visions, Scrooge is given a chance to redeem himself, attending Fred's party and lavishing gifts on the Cratchit family and learning that kindness and generosity to others lead to his own happiness.

              Bleak House (EPUB ebook)

              By Dickens, Charles; Illustrated by Browne, H. K.

              Bleak House is not only a love story and a tightly plotted murder mystery, but also a condemnation of the corruption at the heart of English society.

Browne.The inheritance case of Jarndyce and Jarndyce has been going on for generations involving myriad characters from all walks of life. There's Esther Summerson, Dickens' feisty heroine; Sir Leicester and Lady Dedlock, cocooned in their stately home in Lincolnshire; and Jo, the penniless crossing sweeper. We are drawn in and fascinated by the complex relationships. Indeed in none of Charles Dickens' other novels is the canvas broader, the sweep more inclusive, the linguistic texture richer and the gallery of comic grotesques more extraordinary.

              Por que como lectores nos atrae tanto la idea de pasar miedo con un ser que no se rige bajo los parametros y normas habituales de la existencia? Por que estamos dispuestos a que un escalofrio nos recorra todo el cuerpo al recrearnos en las imagenes mas escabrosas que nos proporci...ona un ser de este u otro mundo, cuyas capacidades escapan a nuestra imaginacion? Por que pasar por esos estados de inquietud y desasosiego con entes de otros mundos, o de este, que el autor nos acerca a nuestra aburrida cotidianidad? Existen mundos paralelos al nuestro donde habitan seres que nos producen sentimientos de terror? Seguramente ninguno de nosotros sabe responder a estas preguntas, que ya se plantean desde tiempos remotos, pero lo que si podemos asegurar es que la lectura de estos cuentos podra ayudar al lector inteligente a dar el gran paso de aproximarse a estos mundos de fantasia e imaginacion, con el fin de conocer un poco mas sobre ellos..., tan solo un poco mas. Hemos seleccionado aqui, para su lectura, algunas obras maestras tan conocidas como El guardavias, de Charles Dickens, El hombre de arena, de Hoffmann, La camara de los tapices, de Walter Scott, Aparicion, de Maupassant, Maud-Evelyn, de Henry James, La aparicion de Mrs. Veal, de Daniel Defoe y El fantasma de Madam Crowl, de Le Fanu, todas ellas capaces por si mismas de generar esa sensacion de inquietud que, en el fondo, tanto estamos anhelando.
