  • Indirect Characterization
  • After Scrooge refuses to give a donation to the poor, the men that asked said they are so poor, they would rather die than be poor. Scrooge responds, and his response shows that he is a cruel, selfish person.
  • If they would rather die, they had better do it, and decrease the surplus population.
  • The ghost of Christmas Past has a light as its head. This is symbolic because light help lighten up a room, so the light on the ghost's head helps Scrooge see into his dark past.
  • Symbolism
  • The ghost takes Scrooge to the school he used to go to when he was a little boy. Young Scrooge is sad because everyone has gone home for Christmas while he was left there alone. Scrooge feels bad and thinks about the children that went caroling at his door.
  • Internal Conflict
  • The theme of this story is the consequence of greed. Scrooge is greedy when he tells his clerk the he will not give him more coal for his fire.
  • Theme
  • You can not put more col into your fire. Coal costs a lot of money!
  • Indirect Characterization
  • Scrooge not caring that his partner Jacob Marley died shows what kind of person he really is. It shows that he is cruel and cared for no one, but himself.
  • Do I care then Marley is dead? Nope, not at all.
  • The last ghost is the ghost of Christmas future. He does not talk at all. He only points. This is symbolic because the future is not set in stone, you can still change it.
