The first ghost to haunt scrooge was Jacob, Scrooge´s only friend. Scrooge had only one friend because he drew a hard bargain. I think Jacob came back to haunt Scrooge to teach him how to be a more of a kind person. Scrooge's nephew, pays his uncle a visit and invites him to his once a year Christmas party. Two broad gentlemen also came by to ask Scrooge for a donation to their charity.
This passage, from A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, discusses the character development of Ebenezer Scrooge, along with the irony regarding the Ghost of Christmas Present’s response to Scrooge’s evident transformation. The quote shows Scrooge expressing sympathy towards the declining health of Tiny Tim, the son of Scrooge’s employee, as Scrooge wishes for Tim not to die due to his illness. Scrooge is portrayed earlier in the book as a greedy, selfish man, who only cares about the money he earns, not willing to share it with those in need. This is further explained when Scrooge is asked about sharing some of his vast supply of money with the poor, as he responds by saying that if they must die, they should do so to decrease the surplus population; this depicts Scrooge’s initial despise and disrespect towards those poorer than him. Thus, by begging and showing desire for the revived health
For example when the charity men came to Scrooge’s office, he ushered them away and rudely asked them to leave him alone because he didn’t want to talk… which is basically what Scrooge is always like. Secondly, he doesn’t attend many social gatherings or parties unless it’s for money, and even turns down his own nephews request to share dinner with his family! Finally, Scrooge doesn’t talk or greet anyone, and when he is greeted in the street, Scrooge just snarls, or growls back. When Scrooge is walking back after a long and tiring day of work, Israel Horovitz tells the audience, “There will be occasional pleasant greetings tossed at him. Scrooge in contrast to all will grump and mumble.
The ghost of Christmas future shows Scrooge what happens after his possible death, and 3 people are seen selling his items that he needed to live and rest. One of the 3 people say ‘he died with no one by his side’ which leads to the fact that Scrooge loves nobody but his coin. The ghost lets Scrooge also see that Tiny Tim has died, significantly telling Scrooge that he has to change or he will die and so will Tiny Tim. However, Scrooge decides to change his ways once and for all, and he finally pledges to be a kind man to others, with no potential signs of threat or vile manners. The whole point of the spirit’s visit was to use the final blow on Scrooge’s Arctic organs and give him a few more scenarios of what happens in the possible future.
In conclusion, all the three ghost are really important to reform Scrooge’s attitude. They try to show him the mistake in the past, present, and how it effect to his future. In my opinion, The Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come is the most important spirits that definitely has the greatest effect which caused Scrooge to find out the effect of his mistake in the future since the ghost show him his isolated graveyard. At the end of the story, Scrooge has been returned to the day of Christmas Eve.
It comes up in every chapter of the book, starting in the first chapter, where he walks down the sidewalk, ignoring everyone, to the second chapter where he adores his master as much as his master is fond of him. It is there in the third chapter, where Scrooge's assistant is kind to him, in hope that Scrooge will be nicer back. It appears again in the fourth and fifth chapters where he wishes to be nice so others are nice too him, and then becomes nice with the retaliation of others being nice to him. The whole story is ghosts trying to convince Scrooge to be nicer, so others will be nicer to him. The Title of the book could very well be “Scrooge being convinced that being nice is better than being mean, so that others will be nice to him once he’s dead.”
