Mikayla Moore A Christmas Carol The story A Christmas Carol begins with Ebenezer Scrooge, the protagonist. Scrooge’s business partner, Jacob Marley, passes away from unknown causes on Christmas Eve. This event, along with many other unfortunate events that took place around Christmas resulted in Scrooge hating the Christmas season. On Christmas Eve, seven years later, Scrooge was sitting in his bedroom by the fireplace when the bells on his door began violently ringing. Suddenly, Jacob Marley’s ghost flies through the close door.
Dickens use of opposing ideas and symbols drive the plot of the story and also prove that positive changes only occur in the face of negativity. If there is fire in this tale of Christmas, there is water nearby; everything exists with a polar opposite. The spirits, while all aiming to accomplish the same goal, literally and figuratively show Scrooge both the good and the bad; the light and the dark. The first spirit is described as a “clear jet of light” which made everything “visible” (30). The spirit who is there to show him his past joyous Christmases, is also literally lighting the way.

A Christmas Carol has many themes, however, one stands out from the others. “What goes around comes around” appears to be a big part of this story, and is very important. The main character, Scrooge, goes on a journey, looking at his past, present, and future. Scrooge sees how he’s affected others, from their point of view. The theme, “What goes around comes around”, fits in with this because, Scrooge witnesses how his actions have affected others.
Christmas Carol, a book written by Charles Dickens and first published in the late nineteenth century, was about a story of a miserable businessman named Scrooge Ebenezer who visited by the spirit of his former business partner, Jacob Marley on the day of Christmas Eve. Marley hoped to free Scrooge from sharing the same fate as himself by informing Scrooge the visitation of three spirits which are The Ghost of Christmas Past, The Ghost of Christmas Present and The Ghost of Yet to come. Individual ghosts showed Scrooge his past and prophet of what might happen if he does not change himself. After the visit of the three spirits, he redeemed himself from a cold-hearted and tight-fisted man to a charitableness one.

The novel “A Christmas Carol” takes place in a poor section of London, England during the Industrial revolutions (1800’s). The main character is Ebenezer Scrooge. He is a hard-hearted business man that hates Christmas. Scrooge is visited by the ghost of his dead partner Jacob Marley that now wears a heavy chain for thinking only of making money instead of helping others around him. Marley warns Scrooge that he’s heading the same direction and will be given a chance to avoid it.
His attitude, character, and downright ungratefulness is portrayed in both a drama and on screen format of “The Christmas Story” by Charles Dickens. A play and or drama is a live experience that has no editing. It is a realistic representation shown to an audience and performed by actors and actresses. In the case of the Christmas Story written by Charles Dickens and performed by my fellow classmates we read and acted out a story about a man, who was utterly disgusted by the Christmas Spirit. He who was Ebenezer Scrooge was driven by money only.
Like Scrooge, Marley had spent his life hoarding his wealth and exploiting the poor, and, as a result, is damned to ambulate the Earth for perpetuity bound in the chains of his own avarice. Marley admonishes Scrooge that he imperils meeting the same fate and that as a final chance at redemption he will be visited by three spirits of Christmas: Past, Present and Yet-to-Come. The Ghost of Christmas Past takes Scrooge to visually perceive his time as a schoolboy and puerile man, during the tardy 18th and early 19th centuries. These visions reveal that Scrooge was a solitary child whose unloving father sent him away to a boarding school.
The main theme in Stave 1 of A Christmas Carol is fear. This is the theme because there is a lot of unexpected things that happen and cause Scrooge to be afraid. Ebenezer Scrooge is faced with fear of death and harm. Most people expect to come home, eat dinner, and then go to bed, but for Scrooge he comes home and his peace of mind is shattered. As Scrooge goes through the step by step process of going to bed, frightening things continue to happen.
