Finally, the ghost of Christmas future, tells him that if he carry on being like a stupid scrooge he will soon die as a horrible death and no one will remember of his good memories. This book has a message for all Christmas to celebrate and share the happiness. No one should consider the fact they are rich so therefore the poor shouldn’t celebrate the Christmas as they do. A man with a power should give something to a poor person so they can have the best Christmas. Some people were nice and gave what they could to poor unlike Scrooge who was a greedy rich man.
Scrooge denies and asks if the prisons and workhouses are full, and refuses to give anything. Later on Christmas Eve, three spirits sent by Marley attempt to change Scrooge’s ways. The first ghost, the Ghost of Christmas Past, shows him how miserable he was as a child and how he became a grumpy old man. The reason he is the way his is today is his lost love left him for him loving money more than lovingnher. “Another Idol has displaced me.
The Ghost of Christmas Future was going to demonstrate how people would feel for him, money couldn’t solve every problem or buy everything at the wrong time, and the ghost wanted Scrooge to change his attitude. To show Scrooge how others would feel for him, the Ghost of Christmas Future brought him to the time when he was dead and saw a few old people were standing and talking bad words about him and his money, which he didn’t wanted to spend in life time and couldn’t take them with him when he passed away. He was showed that his money couldn’t do everything, he couldn’t change the others mind with his money when he was dead, and was pay back with hates and bad words of him. Plus, he had been to Bob’s house and found out that Timmy Tim would die because Bob didn’t have enough money for his son’s treatments. Although Scrooge was wealthy, and pity Tinny Tim, he still couldn’t take money to exchange the little boy’s life back.
Charles Dickens novel, “A Christmas Carol”, contains multiple examples of the conflicts between social classes. In Stave One, Scrooge is approached by a young man who looked homeless. The man asked if he could donate to help the poor. Scrooge replies with, “'I wish to be left alone,' said Scrooge, 'Since you ask me what I wish, gentlemen, that is my answer. I don't make merry myself at Christmas and I can't afford to make idle people merry.
In the fictional play, A Christmas Carol: Scrooge and Marley, by Israel Horovitz, Scrooge’s first impression is not very good. He refuses to donate to the poor, he dismisses family who want a relationship, and he is miserable and tries to make others the same way. When two men come to see Scrooge, they were asking for donations for the poor. Scrooge, being one of the wealthiest people in the community, is very dismissive, wrongfully so, and asks the two men to leave empty handed. When Scrooge asks if there are workhouses for the poor to go to, the men explain that most people would rather die than to go there.
What reason have you to be merry?” “I don’t make merry myself at Christmas, and I can’t afford to make idle people merry.” These two quotes show that Scrooge cared nothing for the people around him. He just cared about money only. His life is lonely. His life is sad. And he didn’t like Christmas, he hate it very much.
Without Fan in his life, he no longer has anyone to help him be content. After her death, Scrooge turns his grief and anger towards anything that reminds him of her. This includes Fan’s son, Fred. In Stave I, Fred wishes Scrooge a Merry Christmas and Scrooge tells him that he has no reason to be merry because “he’s poor enough” (Dickens n.pag.). Scrooge constantly treats Fred poorly and fails to let go of his sister’s passing, even when Fred is nice to him.
As the play unravels we realize that he more than just a financial failure but also socially, personally and morally. These failures and faults are not only confined to him but they rub off on his family. The storyline shoots from present day to past throughout the play this does not affect the theme of Failure very much but helps us understand and realize how these failures came about. Willy's entire life is a succession of missed opportunities and chances, and he considers himself a failure because of it. At the beginning of Act 1 we see him failing to make the drive to his business appointment, so he's going to miss out on making a sale because of it.
Scrooge is a miser; he does not want to give anything away. When Scrooge's clerk asks for Christmas day off work: 'It's not convenient' Said Scrooge, 'and it's not fair. If I was to stop half-a-crown for it, you'd think yourself ill used, I'll be bound?' Scrooge is very selfish here. He can easily afford to not have his clerk in for the most festive time of giving in the year but Scrooge wants to ignore the time of year and ca... ... middle of paper ... ...ckens achieved his aims as part of a social change.
As A Christmas Carol starts, Scrooge is the cruel old man who is too cheap to do anything has needed to be done or care about anyone in need around him. Fred is a relative to Scrooge and tries to encourage his uncle during Christmas to get into spirit, which is almost impossible for him to do so (“A Christmas Carol” 66). On Christmas eve Scrooge was visited by three ghosts, the ghost of the past, present, and future. They are here to warn him that he must change(“A Christmas Carol” 67). He soon realizes how selfish he is and wants a second chance.
