Scrooge is described in this manner because he would n’t hold to give his employee a twenty-four hours off for Christmas to pass with his household ; in add-on with all the money that Scrooge has he is unable to give money to charity. Dickens does this to demo all the bad wonts that Scrooge has, every bit good as to do the audience have the same hatred towards Scrooge as he has towards other people, and Christmas.

Subsequently on in staff 2, Scrooge gets visited by the shade of Christmas yesteryear, which makes Scrooge realise that if he carries on the manner he is he will stop up like his old friend Marley, in ironss paying for all the revolting things that he did with Scrooge in his life before he passed off. A We see Scrooge start to alter when he is reminded of his sister ‘s kid and he remembers how much he loved his sister “ Scrooge seemed uneasy in his head ; and answered briefly, “ Yes. ” . the fact he is uneasy makes it clear that he is believing about something profoundly, possibly he is losing his sister, possibly he is believing about how rude he was to his nephew, but either manner he is get downing to demo his feelings, which makes the audience have a little alteration of bosom for Scrooge, and get down seeing a portion of Scrooges good.


In stave 3, Scrooge is visited by the shade of Christmas nowadays, Dickens does this so that Scrooge, is able to see how people spend their Yule with their household ‘s, something that Scrooge has been losing out on as a portion of his life, which makes Scrooge gain how much of a ‘Humbug ‘ he is. Dickens does this so that Scrooge will believe to himself that he “ must ” alter his manner of life. On the other manus the Ghost of Christmas nowadays, besides shows Scrooge shows how a household that is populating in poorness are passing their Christmas, and the manner they were passing their Christmas was by them populating on the street, the male parent holding to look for nutrient in bins or left over from eating houses.

By Dickens making so Scrooge is able to gain what he needs to better on, which make Scrooge beg for things to be different, besides wishing that he could assist Tiny Tim, his employee ‘s boy with giving him another opportunity by Scrooge paying for Tiny Tim ‘s surgery. Another illustration as to why Scrooge wanted to alter was because in the novel Scrooge says, “ Your nature intercedes for me, and commiserations me. Guarantee me that I yet may alter these shadows you have shown me, by an altered life. “ , By this devils is demoing the difference between the upper category which have everything they want, need, and they can afford it all, but on the other manus A the handicapped A are n’t able to afford what they would wish to hold for themselves which leads to them merely holding wants and pray to God for them to acquire what they want.

By the terminal of stave 5 Dickens shows how Scrooge alterations, and some illustrations are when Scrooge begs the shade to do things different for him and he promises that he will alter his manner of life, besides when Scrooge makes a really big offer to the charity he denied when they asked him for charity, every bit good as when he buys the biggest Meleagris gallopavo for his employee as a present for him, and he even visits his nephew, and apologises to him for the crewel things he said to his nephew, in add-on it is mentioned that Scrooge is sort everlastingly more.

Dickens wrote this novel to demo people that any-one could hold a alteration of bosom, besides to do people halt denying the fact that there are people less fortunate than them-selves, and if they are able to, they should give to the people that are less fortunate than them-selves, besides the novel is popular for the ground being it has an consequence on people, and it teaches people to appreciate what they have, non what they do n’t hold. In my sentiment this novel has an consequence on people because it allows them to gain that if they are making incorrect in their life they will still hold a opportunity to alter into something better with no declinations of populating the yesteryear.
