Overview

"The Haunted Man and the Ghost's Bargain" is Charles Dickens 19th century novella that concludes his series of five Christmas books written between 1843 and 1848. It is the story of Professor Redlaw, a chemistry teacher who is constantly brooding over the grief caused by past wrongs done to him. Redlaw is haunted by a spirit who takes from him these painful memories, which leaves him unexpectedly bitter. Ultimately the conflict of the novella is resolved in an uplifting way which asserts the moral of the story, that '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.'

This is probably one of my favorite Dickens works, although it is not very well known today. It is the last of his so-called Christmas Books, the first one being the famous A Christmas Carol. This one has some humor to it, but the main story is pretty bleak. Although it does have a happy ending. If you enjoy Dickens' work in general, then I think you will like this book.

She pounces on the mouse and kills it quickly. She buries the pery and follows the scent of rabbit. Rippleleaf sees the white tail. She pads silently foreward and pounces landing on its back. She killed it and drags it to camp. -Rippleleaf *-*
