Storyboard Text

  • Theme
  • I wear the chain I forged in life (628)
  • Symbolism
  • Would you so soon put out, with worldly hands, the light I give? (633)
  • Internal Conflict
  • She died a woman, and had, as I think, children.
  • I have come to bring you home, dear brother!
  • The theme of this scene is that Marley regrets his decisions that he made in his life. In his afterlife, he now has to carry the chain of his desires, such as cashboxes and safes. Now he is coming to warn Scrooge that this will be his fate if he does not change, and the choices he makes now will be with him long after he is gone.
  • Indirect Characterization
  • The Ghost of Christmas Past has a unique light that symbolizes the ghost lighting up Scrooge's past. Scrooge tries to put out the light of the ghost, but it doesn't work. This symbolizes that Scrooge cannot escape his past.
  • Symbolism
  • This scene is showing Scrooge as a boy and his sister Fan. Scrooge's internal conflict is guilt that he is not kind to his nephew, Fan's son. She died while she was still fairly young. Scrooge feels bad that he does not treat his nephew like Fan would've wanted him to.
  • Internal Conflict
  • 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."
  • This indirectly characterizes Scrooge as selfish. He doesn't care about the well-being of his clerk, Bob Cratchit. Scrooge keeps the coal in his own room so Cratchit cannot keep warm. he must work in the freezing cold because Scrooge just doesn't care.
  • 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
  • This boy is Ignorance. This girl is Want. Beware them both, and all of their degree, but most of all beware this boy, for on his brow I see that written which is Doom, unless the writing be erased.
  • These children represent want and ignorance. The Spirit of Christmas Present tells Scrooge that they belong to mankind. Their hideous physical appearances symbolize that both ignorance and want are two awful things in society. The word "doom" written on the buy's forehead symbolizes Scrooge's fate. If he does not stop being so ignorant and clueless to the suffering of poor people and does not start being more kind to people, he is doomed to an afterlife like Marley's.
  • Scrooge's internal conflict is that he loves money too much. He fears a life of being poor, so he works constantly. He is always counting his money, and his fiance is tired of it. Because of Scrooge's internal conflict of loving money too much, it causes Belle to leave him.
  • This is the even-handed dealing of the world! There is nothing on which it is so hard as poverty; and there is nothing it professes to condemn with such severity as the pursuit of wealth!
