  • Theme
  • No, spirit! I can change and do good before I die!
  • Ebenezer Scrooge
  • Indirect Characterization
  • "Good Afternoon!" (623).
  • "I am sorry with all my heart to find you so resolute. We have never had any quarrel to which I have been a party. But I have made the trial in homage to Christmas, and I'll keep my Christmas humor to the last. So a merry Christmas, Uncle!" (622).
  • Internal Conflict
  • Take me away from here, I can't take it anymore!
  • When Scrooge sees his own grave and sees that no one cares that he has died, he regrets everything that he has done to make people hate him. Scrooge wants a second chance to change. This shows the theme in A Christmas Carol, which is that people can change.
  • Indirect Characterization
  • If Cratchit comes to take some of my coal for his fire, it will be time to fire him.
  • Scrooge's nephew wants to wish his uncle a merry Christmas, but Scrooge is not open to celebrating Christmas, and says "good afternoon" to him to get him to leave. This is indirect characterization because Scrooge's actions tell us more about him.
  • Symbolism
  • Why is he giving happiness to the poor?
  • Bakery
  • Scrooge was trying to accept that he and Belle hadn't had a future together, but he couldn't. This is an example of internal conflict because Scrooge couldn't accept his problems with Belle even though he was trying to.
  • Internal Conflict
  • I wish I could apologize to my clerk.
  • Scrooge kept the coal box in his room so that his clerk, Bob Cratchit, couldn't have any coal for his small fire. This shows indirect characterization because Scrooge's actions tel the readers about him.
  • Scrooge witnesses the Ghost of Christmas Present give happiness to the poor through his torch. This symbolizes the idea of sharing what you have a lot of. This is an important idea for Scrooge to learn, because he doesn't understand that the poor can be happy too.
  • At Fezziwig's party, Scrooge sees how well he was treated while working, and he regrets the way that he treats his clerk. This is an example of internal conflict because Scrooge wishes that he had treated Mr. Cratchit differently, but he can't change the past.
