And now I would describe each of the characters of A Christmas Carol movie… Ebenezer Scrooge was a man that did not care about others. One day two portly men came into his office and asked him if he could donate some money for poor people… well he did not accept and he said that most of that poor people should die or go to prison and work in some workhouses. He in the movie was a very, very bad man and three ghosts of Christmas showed him to be nice with people, friends, family etc… Finally he changed and have a lot of fun with his family that they invited him for a dinner, with poor people and with his nephew Bob Cratchit.

This ironic foil is an interesting aspect of the first “autobiography”. While both men have a major imbalance between professional success and internal happiness and rely on the help of ghosts to help overcome these deficiencies, the implication of the stories could not be more different. Imagine if a university’s exemplar was the redemptive tale of Scrooge, that would read like something from The Onion. Even though Confessions relies on more outrageous claims than A Christmas Carol, it is viewed as reasonable source material for the birth of a university. Neither author could control the legacy of their work, but it is interesting to compare the reasonability of the text alone, without

Write a short analysis on the use of Ignorance and Want in the novel A Christmas Carol. What is Dickens’ message to society and how does he use language to convey this? Dickens personifies the abstract concepts of ignorance and want through a harrowing description of two children. Firstly, Scrooge is not able to tell if it is a foot or claw sticking out of the ghost’s robe. By likening the appendage to a claw, Dickens is suggesting that the children are barely human, instead their poverty has made them more like animals.
In the passage, Scrooge replies to the ghost of Christmas past that the money value of the Christmas party is not equivalent to the sense of gratitude received as “the happiness he gives is quite as great as if it cost a fortune.” This signifies a sense of remorse in Scrooge for how he treats his employee in contrast with how he was treated. The character of Fezziweg and the praise he received is the initial factor that encourages Scrooge to redeem himself as a man. In the fourth stave, his first action that marks his transformation is the purchase of the turkey for the Cratchit family, followed by giving Cratchit a raise. Scrooge is mirroring Fezziweg as a
If you look at the Christmas Carol and the billionaire, you can see the difference which is how the characters present themselves. For the Christmas carol, the male name is stooge who is an old grumpy dude. He does not care about nothing, but himself at first. After a couple of events, he shows he is a very selfish person. So later on one day, he has a visit from an old friend in ghost form.

Ghost of Christmas Past reveals Scrooges’ nightmares; his actions and relationships from his wretched past. Lastly, The Apparition of Yet To Come show Scrooge his ultimate future but, the events will only occur if he does not make an effort to bring out the opposite of his character. These three ghosts went to different places but, they all had the same mission; guide Scrooge to the light, to make a better man out of him. Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” was written to show the impact an individual, even the dead, can have on others.
The ghost took Scrooge into the Cratchit's home and Scrooge was confused because he thought the more money you have the happier the Christmas. Scrooge then realized Christmas isn’t all about money, but family. Stave 4-Fear The main idea in stave 4 is fear. The ghost of Christmas past takes Scrooge to the future, he experiences heartbreak.

In 'A Christmas Carol', Charles Dickens represents Scrooge as an unsympathetic man who is offered the opportunity to redeem himself. Through the use of language, the reader is positioned to view him adversely, but during the journey of the morality lessons shown by four phantoms. In the form of an allegory, we will discover how Dickens demonstrates a defiant and isolated character in Stave One. In a Christmas carol, Dickens portrays his protagonist, scrooge, unfavourably. ‘Solitary’ is an adjective which Dickens implanted into the prose so that the readers could grow a stronger dislike for him as it infers that he is anti-social and unpleasant, ‘solitary’ also relates to Scrooge as he has the characteristics of someone in solitude.
