A Children’s Imagination
A Child’s Christmas In Wales Literary Analysis Essay
— Albert Einstein
The imagination of Christmas sparkles in children’s imagination and in families’ love when they come together. Dylan Thomas’s heartwarming tale, A Child’s Christmas in Wales, paints an unforgettable picture of Christmas through a young boy’s recollection of the holiday. His vivid imagination and playful sense of wonder drive the story, reminding readers of the innocence and enthusiasm with which children approach life, and the importance of enjoying simple pleasures at Christmas and beyond. By choosing a child narrator and highlighting only children’s experiences in the story, Thomas sends his readers a message that the playful perspective of children is equally important to that of adults and should be an opportunity for reflection for how we approach life.
