Storyboard Text

  • SYMBOLISM
  • " 'They are Man's, and they cling to me, appealing from their fathers. The boy is ignorance. This girl is want.'"
  • INTERNAL CONFLICT
  • " '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! Keep Christmas in your own way, and let me keep it in mine.'"
  • THEME
  • " 'It matters little. To you, very little. Another idol has displaced me; and, if it can cheer and comfort you in time to come as I would have tried to do, I have no just cause to grieve.'"
  • Towards the end of Stave III, the ghost of Christmas present and Scrooge arrive back in Scrooge's bedroom. The spirit opens his robe and Scrooge notices two monster- looking children down below. These children represent, or symbolize society today. The boy represents everybody's ignorance and the girl represents everyone want and how they beg for everything that they don't need.
  • INDIRECT CHARACTERIZATION
  • "Scrooge had a very small fire, but the clerk's fire was so very much smaller that it looked like one coal. But he couldn't replenish it, for Scrooge kept the coal box in his own room;".
  • In Stave I, Scrooge and his nephew, who are complete opposites, are taking a walk along the town. The nephew wishes Scrooge a merry Christmas, and Scrooge replies in a very angry way, shown in the quote. This shows how Scrooge FEELS about Christmas and how he does not like to talk about it, representing an internal conflict.
  • SYMBOLISM
  • The theme of this is to think of the more important, not valuable things in life. As you can see, since Scrooge is in the past, it is showing how he regrets choosing his money over Belle (his ex-fiance) since he feels bad for being so selfish.
  • Internal Conflict
  • "'Many can't go there; and many would rather die.'"
  • "'If they would rather die, they had better do it, and decrease the surplus population.'"
  • In Stave I, we are introduced to where Scrooge works and the poor working conditions that he has in his office. The darkness of his office and the fact that he only keeps the coal for the fire to himself (IN A COLD OFFICE), shows that Scrooge is a dark and selfish person. This was stated in an indirect way.
  • At the end of Stave II, we have gone though Scrooge's past with the spirit. This shows symbolism because it is showing that Scrooge wants to change, but he can not get rid of the light symbolizing that he can not get rid of the past. This is because the light represents his past, since it is the ghost of Christmas past.
  • "But though Scrooge pressed it down with all his force, he could not hide the light, which streamed from under it, in an unbroken flood upon the ground."
  • These two gentlemen that Scrooge encounters on the street are trying to get Scrooge to make a nice donation to the poor. Scrooge makes this rude remark and it shows that Scrooge never thinks about other people and he really doesn't care about them.
