  • Indirect characterization
  • "Scrooge was not so dreadfully cut up by the sad event but that he was an excellent man of business"(620). Dickens portrays Scrooge's character through his actions when Scrooge is only sad when Jacob Marley died because he was a good business partner, not because they were friends.
  • poor Jacob!
  • What a shame this fine business man is gone.
  • Internal Conflict
  • It's humbug still! I won't believe it!
  • Scrooge is conflicted with himslef because he knows he sees a ghost but still refuses to believe it.
  • Internal Conflict
  • Scrooge is angry and sad because he does not see why being an avarice is such a bad thing. Belle is breaking up with him for his greedy ways, and this begins his quick decline into the miser he is today.
  • Have I ever sought release?
  • In words, no. Never.
  • Symbolism
  • 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
  • The boy symbolizes how England is treating the poor and its problems because they ignore it and make the rich richer and the poor poorer. The girl symbolizes how want and greed makes people ignorant.
  • Spirit! Are they yours?
  • Indirect Characterization
  • If there is any person in the town, who feels emotion caused by this man's death,show that person to me, Spirit, I beseech you!
  • Charles Dickens indirectly characterizes Scrooge when Scrooge is bothered by the fact that nobody was affected by the death of the man. Scrooge's sensitivity is shown in this scene.
  • Theme
  • The theme of A Christmas Carol is the importance of change, and it is showed when the Spirit's hand trembles as it's pointing to Scrooge's possible future death and Scrooge said he wanted to change. The hand trembles because now that Scrooge wants to change, the future is uncertain.
