The moral of A Christmas Carol has everything to do with the transformation of the main character, Ebenezer Scrooge. He begins the story as a miserly, closed-hearted man. Through the events of the novel, he is transformed into a man whose heart is open to the pain and struggle (and love) of others, a man who has become someone who will participate in the world around him, rather than withdraw from it.
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. Through Scrooge’s past one can see reasoning behind his attitude towards life. Along with this family issues and neglect are apparent. We see this through description of places where he spent a great deal of time, “Approached a mansion of dull red brick.” the mansion referred to is a school house where Scrooge attended.
He fears that death mocks him for not being able to approach the woman and believes that he is going to die in this apprehensiveness.

At the beginning of the novel “A Christmas carol” Scrooge can be interpreted as an archetypal villain (an extreme stereotype of a villain), this is inferred when Dickens describes Scrooge as an “old sinner”. The quote “old sinner” links in with the description of a villain as a sinner often someone who commits immoral acts regularly whilst disregarding Christian doctrine, considering the time the book was published (1800) committing a sin was a villainous act to do; therefore implying to the reader that Scrooge is a going to be a villainous character throughout the novel. When Macbeth is first introduced, Shakespeare chooses to present Macbeth as heroic archetypal male, completely contrasting with how Scrooge is presented as a villain at the
On the other hand, Scrooge and Charles Dickens are very different from each other. For example, Charles Dickens was very sympathetic with the lower classes and “requested that one of the readings be reserved for working people and that they be charged only a small admittance fee,” (Warren 118). This is all while Scrooge is is telling the portly men the poor should go in prisons and workhouses. He also tells them that “If they would rather die, they had better do it and decrease the surplus population,” (Dickens 10). Another difference is that Dickens loved to interact with people.
