Abstract

A Christmas Carol is a novel by Charles Dickens full of social criticism and is framed in the story of Christmas majesty. This study aims to reveal the structure of the novel A Christmas Carol concerning the Evangelical movement in England during the Victorian era. This study employs the theory of Genetic Structuralism by Lucien Goldmann. The analysis shows that the Christmas ghosts can change the characters, setting, and plot of the novel because they deliver the main idea of the novel, which is the enlightenment message of the Evangelical movement. The message is about human kindness, mutual assistance, and death.
