A lot of people die so what was so special about scrooge? Let’s find out.A lot of people were talking about the man because he was a cheap, mean tight-fisted miser.Throughout the story he proved this by not donating for charity, he wouldn’t share and he also only worked by candle light and heat from a small fire .
At the beginning of A Christmas Carol, Scrooge is greedy,mean and rude. Scrooge is greedy because he won't even allow his clerk to have enough coal to keep him warm. He insists on saving money by burning only enough coal to keep a small flame glowing whether the heat that it puts out is sufficient to keep the clerk warm. (pg 2). Scrooge is mean because nobody ever stopped him in the street to say,with gladsome looks, “My dear Scrooge, how are you?” “When will you come and see me?” Even the dogs bring their owners inside the house.(pg 3). Scrooge is rude because he was mean to his nephew. “A merry Christmas, uncle! God save you!” cried a cheerful voice. It was the voice of Scrooge’s nephew, who came upon him so quickly that this was the first intimation he had of his approach. “Bah!” said Scrooge, “Humbug!” “Christmas a humbug, uncle!” Said Scrooge’s nephew. “You don’t mean that, I am sure?” “ I do,” said Scrooge. (pg 4-5). Scrooge changes from these traits through his experience with the ghosts of the past, present, and future.
Scrooge is a very angry, rude, unfriendly character. Scrooge’s cruel actions to most others are unkind, especially when it’s about Christmas. The bitterness drive in Scrooge against Christmas is very strong. Scrooge also hates things such as love, happiness, generosity, and regards them as irrational until such time that a rightful trio of ghosts came to set him right. Charles Dickens paints him as an old businessman, with a ring of frosty white hair on his head, a pointed nose, red eyes, thin eyebrows, and a wiry chin. He’s so cold inside, it makes his lips blue, the tip of his nose strawberry red. The book describes him as hard and sharp as flint, self-contained, and solitary like an oyster. He is also described as
While Scrooge is asleep the phantom slowly gravely and creepily walks towards him, Scrooge knows exactly who it is he is the ghost of Christmas future. But Scrooge is not very content to see him, he wants to know where he’s gonna take him. As the ghost takes him to where they need to go they move to the big city and it looks like that somebody died, it states in the text that a man recited I don’t know all that I know is that he’s dead.It also says that he died last night whoever died. They are making fun of whoever died and they are saying this is gonna be a cheap funeral I mean who would come? Then they start taking all of his possessions and the undertaker demands them, he wants to know where the blankets are and where everything is. As
Based on what I have read in the text, Scrooge is an excessively angry, rude, unfriendly character. Scrooge’s cruel actions to most others are unkind, especially when it’s about Christmas. The bitterness drive in Scrooge against Christmas is very strong. Scrooge also hates things such as love, happiness, generosity, and regards them as irrational until such time that a rightful trio of ghosts came to set him right. Charles Dickens paints him as an old businessman, with a ring of frosty white hair on his head, a pointed nose, red eyes, thin eyebrows, and a wiry chin. Scrooge’s so acutely cold inside, it makes his lips blue, the tip of his nose strawberry red. The book describes him as hard and sharp as flint, self-contained, and solitary
Most people already have an idea/image for themselves. Many think they are pretty, funny, or even ugly/rude at times. People have a strange way of thinking about themselves, but so do others in a third perspective. If someone asked you “ what do you think about “blank” ?”, the name would make you feel something. People seem never to have a problem talking about who they know, but what if that friend… was Ebenezer Scrooge?
At the beginning of the story, Scrooge was a miserly man who seems like had no kindness or humanity. He did not even let his clerk, Bob Cratchit, had a fire for warm his body, and he did not involve in any Christmas activities.
In this essay I am going to distinguish the personality of Scrooge also show you how he was at the beginning of the novella in the 1st Stave to how he changes at the end in the 5th Stave.
Ebenezer Scrooge starts of in the story being a angry, unkind, and ungrateful man. Scrooge never donated any money to the poor or to any charities. For example one day near the christmas holiday some people came to his place of work asking if he would donate some money to the less fortunate, he refused to help out by donating and told them to leave. Mr. Scrooge underpaid his worker Mr. Bob Cratchit, it shows in the story that Bob was not getting paid enough for the amount of hours he worked for Mr. Scrooge, because he could barely afford to feed his family. Also Ebenezer never went to visit his family. Mr. Scrooge's nephew had been asking his uncle to come to supper with him and his family on christmas day for years and he always said no and that he would not come.
Scrooge is a rude old man, who hate Christmas. One night the spirit of the past showed Scrooge his past to remind him of what he used to be like and that he changed. The spirit of the present took Scrooge to visit Bob Cratchit’s house. Bob Cratchit's family is still grateful and happy despite having little money. Fred (Scrooge’s nephew) ,and his wife feel sorry for Scrooge. They are happy despite Scrooge being rude. The spirit of the future took scrooge to the Cratchit's family preparing for Tiny Tim’s funeral. Scrooge sees his name on a gravestone as a final scare tactic. Scrooge doesn't like the future he sees . He promise to be kind and grateful. The ghost visited him because they wanted to help him change his future. And in the end he was happy, kind and grateful. Scrooge learned that tiny tim will die if things don't change. Scrooge also learned that his nephew and niece cares about him. Scrooge promises to be kind, grateful, loving ,family, sharing. Scrooge’s biggest / most important regret is not to celebrate Christmas. He also regrets not spending time with his family.
To start off, in many instances Scrooge showed what type of person he is, even at the beginning of the play his old friend Marley described him as a “wrenching, grasping, scraping, clutching, covetous, old sinner!” (paragraph 4 page 236) Which doesn’t seem like a way you would describe an old friend even if you are dead, unless the facts are undoubtedly true. However this isn’t the only occurrence in the play makes us see how Scrooge should change his ways, we see Scrooge at the beginning sitting alone counting his money saying, “They owe me money and I will collect. I will have them jailed, if I have to.” (paragraph 6 page 236) This shows how Scrooge has no tolerance for anything, although this can be good in some cases, others it isn’t the best way to treat people. Especially if you take such extreme measures very quickly, like sending someone to jail or example. But this is all about to change, because Scrooge needs to get better, he needs to learn how to treat people.
Scrooge, who was disrespectful to everyone around him, is miserable now that Marley, his business partner of many years has died. He does not have an ordinary name; his first name is Ebenezer. According to the text, Scrooge hates things like happiness, generosity, and Christmas. Oh! How he hates Christmas! His feelings about Christmas are consistent until three ghosts show him that his way of thinking is wrong. On pages one and two, it says “External heat and cold had little influence on Scrooge. No warmth could warm, no wintry weather could chill him. No wind that blew was bitterer than he, no falling snow was more intent upon it’s purpose.” The author was saying nothing can change how Scrooge acts towards other people. Ebenezer Scrooge was a person who was always down, gloomy, and moody. For example on page one there is a description of Scrooge and it says, “ The cold within him froze his old features, nipped his pointed nose, shriveled his cheek, stiffened his gait; made his eyes red, his lips blue and spoke out shrewdly in his grating voice. A frosty rime was on his head, and on his eyebrows, and his wiry chin.” Scrooge’s wrinkled, aged, rough appearance reflects his inner feelings. According to the text, “Scrooge carried his own low temperature everywhere he went.” Scrooge’s demeanor was always low.
