Mr. Scrooge, the main character in A Christmas Carol a story by Charles Dickens is as I said a miserly man, but he changed. You will see the differences and similarities in the movie and script that should be noticed, but I will also show you how Mr. Scrooge got untangled from his web of greediness. In the movie Mr. Scrooge ’s
In chapter seven in the Outsiders Ponyboy talks to Randy about how the Socs and Greasers hate each other and in the end, Ponyboy made Randy feel better of himself. With all that Ponyboy experienced, he knows that everyone has some potential for being good and that Randy would have saved the kids in the church too. Randy mentions that the world hates him, but Ponyboy says that he hates the world and he needs to change that. In the talk with Randy Ponyboy says “So it doesn’t do any good, the fighting and the killing. It doesn’t prove anything.”
One of the most prominent evidences of irony throughout the entire novella is the Ghost of Christmas Present’s use of sarcasm towards Scrooge, a form of verbal irony. In the earliest scenes, Scrooge is requested to donate to the poor, but refuses to in addition to asking, “are there no prisons” (5) as well as sardonically remarking, if people were to die, “they had better do it, and decrease the surplus population” (6). Sarcasm is expressed as the spirit mocks Scrooge with the repeated words, not meaning them, but knowing that using the words with a different meaning would result in an opposite effect on Scrooge than intended by Scrooge himself; it caused him to feel regret. Originally, Scrooge exhibits no remorse in the words when they were once his and displays an extremely egoistic behavior. However, after the spirit uses Scrooge’s own words against him, Scrooge understands its true, insensitive meaning.
Loyalty represents Sarty and Betrayal represents Abner ’’ In William Faulkner Barn Burning Abner says ‘’You’re getting a man. You’ve got to learn. You got to learn to stick to your old blood or you ain’t going to have any blood to stick to you.’’ Abner try’s to threatening Sarty and also suggesting that he does not betrayal him, but everyone as readers knows he does Betrayal him.
In the words of David Gemmell, “there is evil is all of us, and it is the mark of a man how he defies the evil within.” The beast in the novel starts as a symbol of fear and something that was ignored but ends up creating chaos and representing evil. In William Golding 's, Lord of the Flies, the boys making fun of the little boy for being scared of the beastie and the boys doubting Sam and Eric, Simons hallucination, and Simon 's death are evidence that show the evil and ignorance in the boys. There are many signs of ignorance towards the beast in the novel. One example of ignorance towards the beast is when the boys made fun of the little boy for being scared of the beast.
Sammy’s decision is stated by all as a terrible mistake. Sammy slips out of his slot and walks straight towards the door and walks out without looking back. Not surprisingly he thinks to himself, “I look around for my girls, but they're gone, of course.” While trying to use a heroic gesture to feel equivalent to the girls they seem to have not appreciated the gesture and leave.
While they are walking in the forest, Pearl keeps asking about the “Black Man” and the connection with the scarlet letter. Feeling disturbed, Hester tells Pearl to go away and play. In the forest, Hester confesses Dimmesdale that Chillingworth is her husband. Feeling irritated, Dimmesdale scolds Hester for his suffering, but soon forgives her.
A quick “write me a poem” is poor assessment practice and does not measure a student’s intellectual progress, excluding the idea of Mr. Keating ripping pages out of the textbook which results in breaking school law, ("Why John Keating Is a Bad Example to Teachers"). Keating adds a sufficient amount of history in student’s minds about carpe diem teaching others to do any action without regret. Meanwhile in the movie, Mr. Keating gives advice to Neil for standing up for himself, “Neil, I know this seems impossible but you have to go to your father and show him what you're feeling. You have to let him see who you are- It's
Hosseini and Dickens both utilize fear throughout their novels in many characters as a motivator to redeem themselves from their past actions. In ‘A Christmas Carol’, Scrooge is condemned as a character who fears his self-image, similarly to Baba in ‘The Kite Runner’. Whilst this fear is what caused Scrooge to grow up as selfish and ignorant, Baba learns that the only way to redeem himself from his betrayal is by displaying great actions of kindness. In ‘A Christmas Carol’, Scrooge’s fear of going into poverty is what caused him to become a selfish and ignorant person, however the spirits show him a different point of view which causes him to change out of different fear. After being shown his miserable and lonely death, Scrooge shows a change
He is a dirty old man and perverted one at that. Sammy looks at Mchahon with disgust; treating him as if he is an old disturbing pedophile “patting” at little girls in their bathing suits. Lawrence Jay Dessner expressed similar opinions over Sammy’s thoughts about Mchahon. In his article titled, "Irony and Innocence in John Updike's 'A & P’”, Dessner explains that “to Sammy, his ogling the girls is absurd, ludicrous, grotesque, even distasteful, a response Sammy neatly expressed when he says that Mchahon, the butcher, is “sizing up their joints,”” (Dessner 317).
Have you ever had a Christmas miracle? Ebenezer Scrooge was a mad man. On Christmas Eve, his old partner Jacob Marley´s spirit came to warn him that three spirits were going to see him that night. The first one would be the ghost of Christmas Past, the second was the ghost of Christmas Present, and the last was the ghost of Christmas Future, but which one was the most influential?

Mr. Fezzwig was a very cheerful and friendly guy that would throw a ball for Christmas, this made Scrooge excited. 3.Belle broke his heart and destroyed his love.
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.
