They start out with an elderly Scrooge who has a terrible Christmas spirit. He is visited by his deceased business partner, Marley Jacobson, in an attempt to save his spirit from the same infection which destroyed his soul, greed. In order to do so, Marley sends three spirits, Past, Present, and Future, to
The ghost takes Scrooge to see and hear things for himself. Overhearing a conversation from a group of businessman, Scrooge hears them talking about the death of a rich man and how all the shady people take his stuff to go and sell it to make a profit outs of it. Scrooge then travels to the Cratchit's house and sees that the family is struggling to bear with the death of Tiny Tim, and Scrooge, as frightened as can be, asks the ghost to know who is going to die. Suddenly, Scrooge finds himself in a churchyard where the spirit points towards a fresh new grave with the name on the top of a headstone reading, Ebenezer Scrooge. Charles Dickens wrote Christmas Carol in a novella form to let the people of Victorian Era England be kind hearted to everyone, especially the rich to the poor.
For example, in Stave One it says, “But he was a tight-fited hand at the grindstone. Scrooge! A squeezing, wrenching, grasping, scraping, clutching covetous old sinner!” This shows that Scrooge it not a good man because he has committed many sins. Also, Scrooge proves himself to be extremely rude when in stave one he was telling his nephew Fred, “every idiot who goes about ‘Merry Christmas’ on his lips, should be boiled in his own
Future doesn’t talk. He just wears a long, and black cloak. When Scrooge sees him he asks, “ You are. are you not, the Spirit of Christmas yet to come.”(Dickens 26) Future shows Scrooge shadows that makes him freak out and want to change is life for the better. The first shadow Future shows Scrooge is someone talking about a man’s death.
If I could work my will," said Scrooge indignantly, "every idiot who goes about with 'Merry Christmas ' on his lips, should be boiled with his own pudding, and buried with a stake of holly through his heart. He should!.” Mr. Scrooge also doesn’t care about anyone just himself. He is selfish. "At this festive season of the year, Mr. Scrooge," said the gentleman, taking up a pen, "it is more than usually desirable that we should make some slight provision for the Poor and Destitute, who suffer greatly at the present time. Many thousands are in want of common necessaries; hundreds of thousands are in want of common comforts, sir."
Both writings had many similarities, but no so many differences. In both the movie and the story Jacob Marley was dead, and his name was still on the sign where Mr. Scrooge worked. One night Marley started to haunt Scrooge and told him about what would happen to his future if he didn’t straighten up. There were also three spirits that came to his house, there was the ghost of Christmas past, the ghost of the Christmas present, and a ghost of the Christmas yet to come. All three spirits took the Scrooge somewhere.
There are many old and abandoned houses on the street which are said to be haunted, and everyone stays away from except a couple of crows which are supposed to be evil. After Mr. Sale gets home from his liquor run, he walks in a greets his father, John, sister, Marie, and brother Stephen, all with a smirk on his face because suddenly something is about to change. When Mr. Sale walks into the kitchen, he hears a loud bang on the floor. He runs upstairs only to find his brother,
In this essay I will write about a Christmas Carol. The movie is about a man called Ebenezer Scrooge. He is not a generous person and hates everything related to Christmas. Charles Dickens wrote the book in the 19th century. At that time, there were a lot of poor people.
People that live in the past enjoy their life less than people that live in the present. Well, the story "A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens is about An old man by the name of Scrooge, and three spirits. Those three spirits are ghosts of past, present, and future. Scrooge is a misanthrope and he becomes benevolent later on because three spirits visit him on the night before Christmas and show him Scrooges past, present, and future. Each spirit showed Scrooge how greedy and biased he was.
This is what Scrooge said to Jacob Marley, his old business partner. He was told that he would be haunted by three spirits and after he was haunted by the third spirit, he realized that he was going to die alone. He wanted to change that. It was probably very hard for him to change his way of life towards Christmas. The play of “A Christmas Carol” is very good.
