Friends of the Dickens Forum,

     Goldie Morganthaler <[log in to unmask]> gave a talk 
sponsored by her university which

illustrates delightfully what a university talk on *A Christmas Carol* 
is like.  The talk is for a general

audience and is a present for Dickens lovers who admire the story.  
Goldie has now permitted us to

forward her talk to Dickns-l as a present for the season.  Merry 
Christmas to all !       PJM

And yes, Goldie adds, "I do know that Oscar Wilde's comment was about Little Nell and not Tiny Tim".
