Storyboard Text

  • Theme
  • This represents the consequences of ignorance. In this case, ignoring the poor and everyone except for himself, Scrooge. Scrooge keeps his money to himself and the spirit explains that Doom is to come to him if he does not change and think of others instead of only himself.
  • "Spirit! Are they yours?"
  • "They are Man's... Beware of them both... but most of all beware this boy, for on his brow I see that written which is Doom."
  • Scrooges speech shows that he is very cold hearted. He cares so little for the poor that he would rather them die. All he cares about is money so the poor have no worth in his eyes and he sees no need for them even to be alive.
  • Indirect Characterization
  • "If they would rather die... they had better do it, and decrease the surplus population."
  • "Many can't go there; and many would rather die."
  • Belle has the conflict whether or not to keeps Scrooge and still love him. She makes the decision to leave him because all he cares about is making money and he doesn't care enough for her that he would put his work aside for her.
  • Internal Conflict
  • "Tell me, would you seek me out and try to win me now? Ah, no!"
  • Sybolism
  • More than 1800 brothers symbolizes that for every year, (written in 1843) there is a new ghost of Christmas present.
  • "More than eighteen hundred"
  • "Have you had many brothers, Spirit?"
  • Indirect Characterization
  • Scrooge thinks that rest would have been more helpful than the ghost's visit. This shows that Scrooge is ignorant about how his actions and the help of the ghosts will change his life in the long term. He says he would rather a good night of rest although, this is small in comparison to his afterlife. The ghost wants him to listen to save him from his awful future.
  • "A night of unbroken rest would have been more conducive" (said by narrator)
  • "Take heed!"
  • The ghost won't speak so this silence symbolizes that what the ghost will show to Scrooge is not set in stone yet, but may be in the future.
  • Sybolism
  • "Will you not speak to me?"
