Each of the spirits gives Scrooge insight on his life until he eventually turns his view on the world around. Scrooge’s change in character is demonstrated through his actions, thoughts, and words. Actions can describe a person for who they are whether good or bad. Scrooge’s actions change throughout the book because of the visits with the persuasive spirits; the ghost of Christmas past, the ghost of Christmas present, and the ghost of Christmas yet to come. In the beginning he doesn’t want to give Christmas day off to his employee, Bob but reluctantly gives Bob the day off.
Scrooge is happy of the event of Christmas. He is attempting to spread the happiness of Christmas day. He talks to people, unlike the man he used to be at the beginning of the story. He just came back from the ghost future. He is Showing that he is happier than even and showing that loudly.
than many a year. I’ll raise your salary and endeavor to assist your struggling family…” Scrooge declares. “A Christmas Carol,” includes literary elements that bring out the theme as it applies to character. The ghosts of Christmas take Ebenezer Scrooge on a journey through the past, present, and future in hopes of changing his behavior towards others, and they succeed. The message the play gave was awareness to the empathy Scrooge felt towards those who were less fortunate than himself and how they manage to continue to thrive.
To end, Scrooge finally says something that makes Yet to Come take Scrooge to the present and redeem himself, “I will honor Christmas in my heart and try to keep it all year. I will live in the Past, Present, and the Future. The spirits of all three shall strive within me.” Alas, Scrooge has, soon enough, found the key to a happy rest of his
The second ghost that visited showed him in the present all the poor people that were enjoying themselves even one of his workers Bob Cratchit and his family and tried to make him see sense and joy in Christmas. The final spirit showed Christmas in the future and made Scrooge sees what would happen if he didn't change. After every spirit that visited each one made him realise how important Christmas is and that helping others benefits you and others around
He is big and happy in the movie; he carries a big torch and a green robe. This ghost is by far the most friendly of the group because he looks like he is celebrating, as I can see because of the joy he always seems to have. The ghost of Christmas present has the mission to teach the happiness that Christmas represents to Scrooge as he visits his nephew. He also took Scrooge to see the sadder things, so Scrooge helps to fix them. Bob Cratchitt is the poor employee that works for Scrooge, and even though Scrooge so mistreats him, he remains a loyal and grateful employee.
He showed those in the darkest of situations finding happiness. He showed what Tiny Tim a young crippled boy said, “God bless us all every one!”, where the spirit, then after told Scrooge that if things did not change the boy would die. This showed Scrooge that a little boy who was closer to death than Scrooge at the moment was a happier and better person, when the he could have had a true reason to be bitter and angry, and yet he does not complain of the trials he is currently going through. The spirit showed this to Scrooge as a wake up call, that hits him like a freight train. Bob, who was overburdened and underpaid, said “I’ll give you Mr. Scrooge, the Founder of the Feast!” This showed Scrooge that he should be remorseful of the way he is hoarding money, as there is a household that need it more than him and he is at fault for them thinking that a decent size goose is enough to feed a very expansive
The theme Scrooge’s transformation is seen all through the story as he becomes a much more generous man at the end. For starters, Scrooge says “No said Scrooge, “No I should like to be able to say a word or two to my clerk just now! That’s all.” The literary element is a personification because ghosts do not exactly exist in real life. This ties into the theme because Scrooge is finally starting to care about all of the people he has hurt in his life. He sees his clerk and starts to think, care about everything he has ever done.
While he introduces other characters to represent the good that has surrounds him. Though set during Christmas, the story has a meaning that relates to people year round. Dickens carries this Theme of compassion throughout the entire story, starting with characters around Scrooge and ending with Scrooge himself. When we are introduced to the nephew Fred, we see how even though Scrooge is a old grumpy man with no friends and who scares off anyone who may dare to speak to him, Fred still invites him to the family Christmas party. Fred knows Scrooge will not accept, but perhaps knowing Scrooge is the only blood family he has left, he makes an effort.
In the beginning of A Christmas Carol, Scrooge is very secluded and far from happy. He declines going to eat with his nephew and when the two men walk into his shop scrooge doesn’t donate to those in need. Later on during the first chapter, he is greeted by the ghost of his partner, Jacob Marley, and is told about what will happen to him. The things that will happen to him are because of his greedy and materialistic nature, a prime example of the theme, money can’t buy happiness. Moving on, we will go further into the book.
Before the end of the book, Huck now understands regardless of how bad somebody is their life is still of worth. This shows how mature he can really be because somebody that was immature would rather want somebody to get what they deserve than looking at what their life is worth. “Well it made me sick to see it; and I was sorry for them poor pitiful rascals… It was a dreadful thing to see.” Pg. 174. When Huck was talking about this about the king and duke shows he is maturing and had a true feeling for people.
As a young adult, I can say that Christmas gift giving is likewise to language. Similar to how I grasped the language of English and developed it as I got older, gift giving has also grown with me throughout my childhood up till now. Both have evolved into society and culture. Christmas has transformed into a "cultural ritual" celebrated year after year all because of social norms. The idea that society celebrates Christmas and gift giving without having to be forced represents how culture regulates societal behavior.
Beowulf saves his experiences by being able to tell his story and he keeps a part of Grendel as a gift or treasure. The teenage boy receives gifts and gets well soon cards; the lord must have been on his side because he seems to be getting better. He becomes a whole knew, better person and returns to his normal self but mentally even better. As for “sharing the gift” the boy volunteers at the hospital where he was treated and tries everyday to make the kids with cancer smile. Beowulf’s story ends with one last battle that saves the town but ends his life as well, he was able to share his treasures with
