After seven years of Marley’s death, on Christmas Eve, Scrooge saw Marley’s ghost dragging chains of cashboxes that Marley forged in life. Marley told Scrooge that three spirits would visit him and change his fate. Dickens’ early life had influenced his view on the importance of helping others. In Dickens’ early life, he worked in a workhouse and his job is to paste labels on bottle which is a boring and hellish job. He became a law clerk eventually but it was still tough work.

I will be talking about Ebenezer Scrooge and how he changed drastically throughout the story of the Christmas Carol. During one of the busiest times of the year Scrooge is challenged to visit his past, present, and future. Scrooge is a very grumpy, miserable man who is visited by the three spirits. He learns to be thankful and understand the meaning of Christmas. The story, A Christmas Carol, was written by Charles Dickens in 1843.
In what sense may we see Carton's dying in Darnay's place as Christ-like? It wipes away his sin, just as Christ's death washed clean all of man's sins.

Charles Dickens Historic A Christmas Carol Charles Dickens wrote the novel A Christmas Carol because he believed that he can have an influence on the situation in England in the 19th century(Bio). He included the character’s greed and want that are a part of Scrooge during his visits with the Ghosts of Christmas. Charles Dickens was born on February 7, 1812 in Portsmouth, England.

Tiny Tim had a problem with his leg. I did not like the part when Scrooge said to he two portly men that he would not give them donations to the poor people and instead of it he said that poor people would work in workhouses, go to prison and die. And now I would describe each of the characters of A Christmas Carol movie… Ebenezer Scrooge was a man that did not care about others.
This obviously caused him to have a lack of appropriate education, so Dickens began to develop on interest into books. He was later sent back to school when his dad got out of jail, but when his parents could again no longer afford to pay for their son’s education, he found work in a law office, then as a newspaper reporter. It was here that Dickens’ taught himself shorthand,” (www.ucsc.edu/dickens/DEA/ACC/dickens.bio.html, Dickens’ Life and The Carol).

Scrooge's Change in A Christmas Carol Dickens combines a description of hardships faced by the poor with a heart-rending sentimental celebration of the Christmas season. The novel contains dramatic and comic element as well as a deep felt moral theme. In the beginning of the novel Ebenezer Scrooge is portrayed as a hardhearted and unsociable man.

Scrooges transformed from an unpleasant and penny-pinching character to a charitable kind man.
