Storyboard Text

  • Scrooge and his clerk are both doing work in the counting house, but the working conditions for the clerk are a lot worse than Scrooges. Scrooge allows his clerk only one coal for a fire, yet Scrooge has a full coal-box in his room. This shows that Scrooge is greedy.
  • Indirect Characterization
  • "The door of Scrooge's counting house was open, that he might keep an eye upon his clerk"
  • Coal Box
  • Symbolism
  • The light on the ghost of Christmas past shows symbolism because the ghost is lighting up/making scrooge see what his past was like and to see and realize what his past the mistakes in his past.
  • "But the strangest thing about it was, that from the crown of its head there sprang a bright clear jet of light..."
  • Theme
  • The importance of everyone is the theme because the world is not only surrounded with rich people, it is surrounded by people of all social status and all those people should be put to a good use/cause unlike what people did in 1800's Europe
  • "This boy is ignorence. This girl is want. Beware of them both and all of their degree, but most of all beware of the boy, for on his brow I see that written which is doom..."
  • Internal conflict
  • This is an internal conflict because Scrooge is now starting to regret his decision (which is making him feel upset and anxious) to make his clerk work on Christmas day because his old boss did not make him work on Christmas day.
  • "' No,' said Scrooge,'no. I should like to be able to say a word or two to my clerk just now...'''
  • Symbolism
  • Marley's chain represents symbolism because it represents what he did in life. Since Marley was similar to Scrooge and wasn't very nice/caring, the chain condemned him after death and will torcher him forever.
  • "' I wear the chain I forged in life... I made it link by link, and yard by yard; I girded it on my own free will...'"
  • Indirect Characterization
  • When the two portly gentlemen ask Scrooge for donations to the poor, Scrooge completely denies them and wishes to be left alone immediately. Even around Christmas time Scrooge still will not donate which shows how greedy he really is
  • "' What shall I put you down for?' 'Nothing!' Scrooge replied."
