In the story a Christmas Carol, Ebenezer Scrooge, a mean spirited man, is visited by four ghosts who help him realize that he is not the man he should be. When he is invited to view his own gravestone by the Ghost of Christmas yet to come, Scrooge implores, ¨Men´s courses will foreshadow certain ends, to which, if persevered in, they must lead. But if the courses be departed from, the ends will change, Say it thus with what you show me.¨ Scrooge has to change his life before it is too late I know what Scrooge meant when he said the statement, I also think that he followed his own conclusion. The first ghost to haunt scrooge was Jacob, Scrooge´s only friend. Scrooge had only one friend because he drew a hard bargain.
Finally, Scrooge shoes his disregard when he’s talking to Marley near the beginning of the movie, and Marley is informing Scrooge of what will happen if Scrooge is unable to change his miserly practices. However Scrooge is so scared at the prospect of meeting a ghost that he is completely blind to the perilous path that awaits him; Just like Marley, Scrooge must make up for his bad habits as a living person even when he’s dead. Despite all these horrendous actions and thoughts, Scrooge manages to right himself and put himself on the correct path. The first thing he
Due to the presence of the ghost of Christmas future, Scrooge feel deeply sad, and find out on what he has does during these day is really shameful as well as its effect that will cause him feel regret in future. In conclusion, all the three ghost are really important to reform Scrooge’s attitude. They try to show him the mistake in the past, present, and how it effect to his future. In my opinion, The Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come is the most important spirits that definitely has the greatest effect which caused Scrooge to find out the effect of his mistake in the future since the ghost show him his isolated graveyard. At the end of the story, Scrooge has been returned to the day of Christmas Eve.
As he aged he became more bitter and cross with world. All this makes for an awfully tragic tale, but everyone knows how this story ends. After Scrooge is visited by three ghosts his point of view is changed and he becomes a better man. He starts to look for the good in things, rather than the bad. In this story we see an example that it's never too late to change for the better.
The Christmas Carol is a story of an old miser that cares nothing of Christmas, until an old friend of his warns him of the terrible things that might happen if he doesn’t change his ways. He also warns of three other being that will be visiting him throughout the night. The spirit of Past, present, and Future. Although some might make the claim that either Past or Future were the most influential to Scrooge’s thoughts about Christmas. The Spirit which is most influential in Scrooge’s transformation is Present.
He also says he finds Santa creepy because he "knows when you are sleeping or awake." This Christmas was extra odd to him because his mom finds a childhood doll and says that it is watching over them. These were a few of the things that Greg says makes him hate the holidays. Along with the holiday problems, Greg also faces
The Christmas Carol play comes to life on Christmas Eve in the winter of 1843. (Dickens, 1) Ebenezer Scrooge is the main character who has absolutely no respect for Christmas at all. Matter of fact, he despises this merry holiday which is called to be the conflict of the play but Bob Cratchit, who works for him, is just filled with the thought of it. Yet Ebenezer’s frozen heart doesn’t care until the moment Future(ghost) takes him upon his own
The school of criticism that best interprets Dr.Suess’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas is archetypal criticism. This poem follows the archetypal pattern, where the Grinch leaves his house on a quest to stop Christmas from coming to Whoville. How the Grinch Stole Christmas is an obvious example of “Good and Light vs Evil and Darkness” the Grinch representing evil and the Who’s representing good. “The Grinch hated Christmas!

Thus, by begging and showing desire for the revived health
