THIS EDITION: The dual-language text has been arranged into sub-paragraphs and paragraphs, for quick and easy cross-referencing. The French translation has been modernised and amended to suit this dual language project. The revised English text is in part a translation from French. Essentially, A Christmas Carol has been rewritten in contemporary English from the French translation. The emphasis is on attaining a high correlation between each set of text fragments. The story was originally written in English.
