Dickens' Christmas Carol has become one of the world’s best-known stories of seasonal goodwill and personal transformation. But the season has inspired a number of other moving but less well-known short stories. In this short course we will read and enjoy and discuss six or more of these great stories, from several countries, looking at some common elements, some national and/or historic differences, and the moral lessons we can, or are intended to, take from them. You may wish to share your favourite Christmas stories too!


COURSE OUTLINE

  • Stories from England – the Christmas Carol is not alone
  • Stories from Europe – tales of darkness and light
  • Stories from America -- stories of sense and sentiment

  1. Analyse how different authors develop common Christmas themes like kindness and generosity in a variety of situations.
