A New Take On Dickens Christmas Carol Released


Julian Assange has whipped up a storm by releasing sensitive information via the World Wide Web. There have been calls for his arrest on the grounds of treason. But is Julian Assange merely following in the footsteps of men like Charles Dickens who consistently exposed and challenged the powers of his day through his written work?

Whatever your views on Julian Assange there can be no doubt that Charles Dickens was regarded as the greatest English author of his generation. But more than this, many regard him as a great social commentator who agitated for reform through the power of the written word.

While opinion over Assange’s influence is sharply divided there is universal agreement that Dickens himself was a potent force for good in dark and troubled times. Former head teacher Phil Rowlands pays tribute to this facet of Dickens work in his sometimes provocative retelling of Dickens’ great classic A Christmas Carol.

In this modern adaption of this tale of hope and redemption Phil Rowlands has placed Scrooge’s descendant firmly in contemporary New York City. The issues he touches upon are probably those which Dickens would also have brought into the light however uncomfortable that may prove to be for our social conscience.

Phil Rowlands tribute to Charles Dickens is freely available until 24th December at:
