    Christmas Carol 2.Charles Dickens

    3 Ghosts act as the character's conscience. Scrooge certainly has

    enough to feel guilty about: he is mean and tight-fisted with his assistant,

    Bob Cratchit; dismissive of his nephew, Fred; miserly and cold with the men

    from the local charity association; and nasty to the little caroler that he

    chases away from his keyhole with a ruler. Each of these people are associated

    with some form of innocence, a reminder of the less fortunate or the love of

    family and friends.

    5. Ebenezer Scrooge is

    a miserly old man who believes that Christmas is just an excuse for people to

    miss work and for idle people to expect handouts. He doesn't believe in all of

    the good cheer and charity that the season promotes, and he makes sure everyone

    knows it.

    That night, Scrooge is

    visited by the ghost of his former business associate, Jacob Marley -- a man

    who was as greedy and cold asScrooge is. Marley warns Scrooge that if

    he continues to live so selfishly, he will spend eternity wearing the chains

    that his greed has built.


    ghosts visit Scrooge successively: the Ghost of Christmas Past, the Ghost

    of Christmas Present, and the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come. They show Scrooge his

    error in valuing money over people. Scrooge is frightened by the

    bleak picture of his life and promises to change his ways.

    Scrooge awakes

    on Christmas morning a new man. He becomes jolly and charitable, and truly

    turns into the man he promised the ghosts he would become. He carries the spirit

    of Christmas with him all the year round.

    6.Marley warns Scrooge that

    he is living the wrong way. He pays too much attention to his money and not

    enough attention to the people around him. Scrooge's interest should be in

    fellow human beings -- in helping them and loving them -- not in counting his

    own wealth. Marley didn't learn until he became a ghost that charity

    and kindness were the important aspects of living, but by then it was too late.

    Ghost of Christmas Past: the epitome of the contradictions of youth and age as well as winter and spring.

    Ghost of Christmas Present: a friendly, generous giant who shows Scrooge the homes of Bob Cratchit as well as Scrooge's nephew, Fred.
