A Christmas Carol

Class 5F of Liceo delle Scienze Umane welcomes the coming Christmas time!

Class 5^F of Liceo delle Scienze Umane

welcomes the coming Christmas time!

 

By the watching of the movie A Christmas Carol (2009, R. Zemeckis) and with the linguistic supervision of Professor Castellani, the students of the class – under the leadership of Professor Panarone – reflect on the scientific implication of the story:

 

“Did Dickens actually invent time travel?”

 

The fictional character’s journey through time and space has undoubtedly a never ending fascination: this is the first time-travel jump in the modern fiction.

 

 

 

 

In A Christmas Carol (1843), the protagonist Ebenezer Scrooge is led by the three Christmas ghosts on a journey of personal and social redemption to save his soul.
The book is the best kind of the time travel story and many have called Dickens “the man who discovered Christmas”; but it would be safe to say that Dickens was the man who discovered time travel too!
