In Charles Dickens’classic, A Christmas Carol, Ebenezer Scrooge owes his salvation to one man: his former partner, the late Jacob Marley. Yet despite Marley’s crucial role we know him only as a shadow. Until now.
Fugitive, prodigy, gambler, miner, mentor, corruptor and partner of Scrooge, Jacob Marley suffers a life in which he is both victim and villain, noble and vile. After his death, Marley’s ghost wanders a frozen hell seeking answers and redemption. There he plays one last role: that of a pawn in the battle between Light and Dark. Ultimately, Marley must choose between God and the Devil, between sacrifice and betrayal, as Mankind’s future hangs in the balance.
Marley’s Ghost, a dark tale about the winter of the soul, shines a brilliant, new light on Dickens’ immortal story.
