Storyboard Text

  • Scrooge is indirectly characterized through his dialogue with his nephew Fred as a very grumpy old man. It also indirectly shows Scrooge's thoughts on poor people. He doesn't think that poor people should be happy because Scrooge believes that money is everything.
  • Indirect Characterization
  • I do, Merry Christmas! What right have you to be merry? What reason have you to be merry? You're poor enough.
  • Christmas a humbug, uncle! You don't mean that, I'm sure?
  • Marley has an internal conflict with himself. He is chained up because of how he acted while he was living. He now wishes that he was a better man in his life. Scrooge is beginning to have an internal conflict because he is starting to see that if he doesn't change now, there will be consequences as a ghost. He is trying to decide if he needs to change his ways.
  • Internal Conflict
  • I wear the chain I forged in life, I made it link by link, and yard by yard; I girded it on of my own free will, and of my own free will I wore it.
  • You are fettered, tell me why?
  • Theme
  • The ghost of Christmas Past is showing Scrooge his past. The spirit is bringing Scrooge back to when he was a young boy. This scene supports the theme, the effects of your past, because as a child Christmas was not a happy time for him. Because Christmas was not a good time as a young boy, as an adult he now hates Christmas.
  • The school is not quite deserted, a solitary child, neglected by his friends, is left there still.
  • Internal Conflict & Theme
  • Belle is Scrooge's old girlfriend. Scrooge began loving money more than her. He had an internal conflict and had to decide between money or her. He chose money and lost Belle. This left him bitter and he didn't believe in love after that, which relates to the theme, the effects of your past. If Scrooge had loved Belle more and if she didn't break his heart he would probably be much happier and believe in love. Also if he stopped loving money so much back then, he would be a better person in the present.
  • A golden one.
  • What idol has displaced you?
  • Symbolism
  • The ghost of Christmas Present represents England. The ghost was hiding the children from Scrooge, similar to how England was hiding it's problems. The spirit continues to say that written on the boy's brow is the word doom. This symbolizes that England is doomed if it doesn't start providing public education.
  • This boy is ignorance. This girl is want.
  • Symbolism
  • The ghost of Christmas yet to come points toward the gravestone and will not speak. This is because you cannot speak the future. Later when Scrooge says that he will change the Spirit's hand trembles. This symbolizes that Scrooge's future is beginning to change.
  • Am I that man who lay upon the bed?
