Summary

No space of regret can make amends for one life's opportunity misused. 
A Christmas Carol is one of the most beloved and heart-warming Christmas tales of all time. Ebenezer Scrooge is a greedy and unsympathetic man who has no time for Christmas.  
"If I could work my will," said Scrooge indignantly, "Every idiot who goes about with 'Merry Christmas' on his lips, should be boiled with his own pudding, and buried with a stake of holly through his heart. He should!" 
Yet everything changes when his former partner, Jacob Marley, returns from the dead to haunt him on Christmas Eve. Soon he has to face the Christmases of his past, present and future in a journey to become a better person.

    The play begins with the guards of Elsinore Castle encountering the ghost of the recently deceased King Hamlet, the father of Prince Hamlet. The ghost appears to be a harbinger of doom, hinting at foul play surrounding the former king's death. Prince Hamlet is informed of this mysterious apparition and decides to meet the ghost, who reveals that he was murdered by Hamlet's uncle, Claudius, who has now assumed the throne and married Queen Gertrude. Hamlet is deeply disturbed by this revelation and the apparent betrayal by his mother. He grapples with his grief, anger, and a profound sense of disillusionment. To confirm the ghost's claims, Hamlet stages a play within a play called "The Mousetrap," which mirrors the circumstances of his father's murder. Claudius's reaction to this play confirms Hamlet's suspicions. As Hamlet navigates the complexities of the court, he feigns madness as a way to investigate further and protect himself. His erratic behavior confuses those around him, and he alienates his lover, Ophelia, and her brother, Laertes, in the process. Meanwhile, Hamlet's obsession with revenge intensifies, and he contemplates the moral and philosophical implications of taking another person's life. His famous soliloquies, such as "To be or not to be," reflect his inner turmoil and contemplation of existence and mortality. "Hamlet" is not only a story of revenge and political intrigue but also a profound exploration of the human psyche, existentialism, and the moral and emotional complexities of life. The character of Hamlet is an enduring symbol of the human condition, and his journey through the play continues to captivate and resonate with audiences to this day.

    The Republic is a Socratic dialogue written by Plato around 380 BC concerning the definition of justice and the order and character of the just city-state and the just man. It is Plato's best-known work and has proven to be one of the most intellectually and historically influential works of philosophy and political theory. In it, Socrates along with various Athenians and foreigners discuss the meaning of justice and examine whether or not the just man is happier than the unjust man by considering a series of different cities coming into existence "in speech", culminating in a city (Kallipolis) ruled by philosopher-kings; and by examining the nature of existing regimes. The participants also discuss the theory of forms, the immortality of the soul, and the roles of the philosopher and of poetry in society (Summary by Wikipedia)
