Humbug” (Dickens 10).

Scrooge has started to really understand what he has done wrong in his life and how selfish and mean he really is . The ghost of Christmas Yet to Come shows Scrooge his future and how the people don’t care that Scrooge dies “If there is any person in the town, who feels emotion caused by this man’s death,” said Scrooge quite agonised, “show that person to me, Spirit, I beseech you” ( Dickens 11 ).

Scrooge is showed the future but Scrooge thinks he has already changed completely because he has no idea that the person the men are talking about is him. Scrooge is changing fast but he has not seen the shadows that have not happened but will happen soon "You are about to show me shadows of the things that have not happened, but will happen in the time before us," Scrooge pursued.

A Christmas Carol is a Victorian ethical quality story of an old and sharp misanthrope, Ebenezer Scrooge, who experiences a significant affair of reclamation through the span of one night. Mr Scrooge is an agent/cash changer who has given his life to the amassing of riches. He holds something besides cash in disdain, including kinship, cherish and the Christmas season. Ebenezer Scrooge experiences "Numbness" and "Need" in A Christmas CarolIn keeping with the melodic relationship of the title, A Christmas Carol, Dickens partitions his artistic work into five "fights" rather than sections. This is a little joke Dickens has done all through the story, it adds amusingness to the story and connections in on the grounds that, a fight is something you will discover in a bit of music, and a "tune" is a kind of music/melody.
"Money makes the world go round.” A famous phrase that mercilessly expresses the truth about life these days.And it is not the only one that points to the same thing:that society nowadays treasures the material instead of the spiritual growth or moral development.From famous songs such as Abba’s “Money,money”,”Money makes the world go round” from the movie „Cabaret”,to books such as“A Christmas Carol”,they all show that money lays in the center. An ideological novel,”A Christmas Carol” tells of bitter and miserly Ebenezer Scrooge's ethical, and emotional transformation resulting from supernatural visits from Jacob Marley and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come.Unfortunately,only in a book does it seem possible to change,as today,anybody can scarcely do it.

Although when Marley visits him through the spirits and brings with him the Ghost of Christmas past, The Ghost of Christmas Present, and the Ghost of Christmas Future, many changes begin to boil. The settings that surrounds Scrooge throughout A Christmas Carol give a timeline to the changing personality of Scrooge starting with his neglected past, continuing with his gloomy present self, and finally with his possible murky future.

When The ghost of Christmas Past haunts Scrooge, it shows him his past. It shows when he was a little kid, teenager, and young adult. This Ghost shows Scrooge’s mistakes and times when he was a happy, joyful, and not a greedy person. In this Stave of the book it says, “It was a strange figure --- like a child: yet not so like a child as like an old man, viewed through some supernatural medium, which gave him the appearance of having receded from the view, and being diminished to a child’s proportions” (Dickens 23). This quote from the book, in which Scrooge states that the ghost was not young or old; it was switching between the two.
Filling this role is Herman, a homeless man that Frank often sees on the street and inadvertently, due to his lack of compassion and harsh exterior, contributes to Herman’s fatal demise. While Donner is sure to include Herman is those whom Frank makes amends with, showing Herman among the three spirits and Hayward’s (Marley’s) ghost waving their goodbyes to Cross at the end of the film, the inclusion of this striking tragedy was bold and furthered Dickens’ themes of compassion and forgiveness found within the original novella. Frank Cross, coming full circle from his maniacal past, soliloquizes: Frank Cross: There are people who are having trouble making their miracle
This effective strategy aims straight at the hearts of the readers as he/she must question if what they recently believed in, is truly humane and justified. His use of the quote from (Matthew 22:36-40) help him accuse the humanity others hold, and how they could allow their ‘neighbor’ to go through such emotional pains and
Later Scrooge is visited by three spirits who try to help him change his ways. The Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future. In the end he does change his ways and he is one of the nicest people in the entire world. Charles Dickens is the author of this amazing book and every author has a purpose or a reason for writing a book, a message they want to give the reader. Now we ask ourselves the age old question who is the audience?
The grandmother is pleading for her life and asks if the Misfit will shoot her, he says, “I would hate to have to” (O’Connor 7) On the other hand, while David is spying on the Tomkeys, he thinks, “Because they had no TV, the Tomkeys were forced to talk during dinner. They had no idea how puny their lives were, and so they were not ashamed that a camera would have found them uninteresting” (Sedaris 720). He is also setting a suspicious mood on what he is going to do next. His choices are to tell the Tomkeys that their lives were puny and insignificant or he can tell them nothing and be their friend. He is also a suspicious character because reader are unknowing of his plans.
