Storyboard Text

  • Dickens indirectly characterizes Scrooge through the dialogue with his nephew. Scrooge is very angry since his nephew insists on being merry during Christmas, even though he isn't the richest man. Scrooge believes that you can't have happiness without wealth.
  • INDIRECT CHARACTERIZATION
  • "Bah! Humbug!"
  • "A merry Christmas, uncle! God Save You!"
  • INTERNAL CONFLICT
  • Scrooge had an internal conflict when the Ghost of Christmas Past shows him his past self alone on the playground. Scrooge feels very emotional at this point in the novel because he has to relive all of the hardships of his childhood.
  • "A solitary child, neglected by his friends, is left there still."
  • INDIRECT CHARACTERIZATION

  • "But first we are going to be together all Christmas long!"
  • SYMBOLISM
  • The two hideous children that the Ghost of Christmas Present reveals to Scrooge are an example of symbolism. The Ghost tells Scrooge to beware of them for "doom is written upon their brow". This means that any man who posses these qualities will be doomed to the fate of Marley.
  • "This boy is Ignorance. This girl is Want. Beware of them both, and all their degree..."
  • A theme for A Christmas Carol is the power of change. At the beginning of the novel, Scrooge was an old man that everyone hated. He was dominated by his avarice and greed. After being shown his past, the present, and his possible future, Scrooge promises to change his ways. Throughout the story he has become a very different character.
  • THEME
  • "I will live in the Past, the Present, and the Future. The Spirits of all Three shall strive within me.
  • The Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come symbolizes the future itself. When Scrooge first encounters him he says nothing, he only points. This is because you cannot speak the future with complete certainty because it depends on your actions.
  • SYMBOLISM
  • It gave him no reply. The hand was pointed straight before them.
