Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, first published in 1843, continues to be a well-known book today. Written by Dickens to inspire Londoners to be more generous with the less fortunate people around them, it was a loosely disguised autobiography. Dickens and his family were the inspiration for the family of Bob Crachit.
