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

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.
