ANALYSIS - A CHRISTMAS CAROL - CHARLES DICKENS
The protagonist, Scrooge is a cold, miserly creditor whose redemption to kindness and selflessness forms the arc of A Christmas Carol. Scrooge represents the Victorian rich who neglect the poor and think only of their own well-being. The most motivation Dickens provides for Scrooge's character is his depiction of him as a young boy; neglected by his peers and, it appears, by his father, the young Scrooge seemed determined to live only for himself as he aged.
Cratchit is Scrooge's overworked employee, a timid man afraid to stand up to his boss's demanding ways. The patriarch of a family poor in wealth but rich in love, he cares especially dearly for his crippled son, Tiny Tim. Cratchit is a symbol for the Victorian poor, good-hearted and hard-working but unable to climb out the stifling conditions of poverty.

A CHRISTMAS CAROL GREED IS THIS THEMES AS SEEN REFLECTED IN THE LORD EBENEZER, ALSO FOR BEING JUST NOT CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS, ADDICTION IS ANOTHER THEME THAT HAS Ebenzer FOR WORK, EGOCENTRISM, TO THE OTHER DOES NOT CARE NOT EVEN YOUR EMPLOYEE Bob Cratchit, THE ONLY THING THAT MATTERS IS YOUR BUSINESS AND MAKE MONEY.
DIALOGUE: Well, the idea and the purpose is know all the concept about different aspects to the life of a person who did not like Christmas, which for a change is necesirio you pass a series of different events, so that in the end, everything makes a change, this makes children mainly have a great reception.
This book, contain story about fantasy for example: One night, on Christmas Eve, Scrooge is visited by a ghost who happens to be his best friend and partner, Jacob Marley, who died seven years before the beginning of the story. The spectrum tells you, for being greedy in life, all their wickedness has become a long, heavy string to drag for eternity. Scrooge tells him which surpassed all its evils, therefore, when you die you will have to live a much longer chain and heavy. Then he announces the visit of three spirits of Christmas, that will give you the last chance to save himself. Scrooge gets scared and defies prediction. Scrooge falls asleep.
Dickens blames the huge class stratification of Victorian England on the selfishness of the rich and, implicitly, on the Poor Laws that keep down the underclass. Scrooge is the obvious symbol of the greedy Victorian rich, while the Cratchits represent the working poor. But Dickens goes beyond sentimental portraits and reveals the underbelly of the city, notably in Stave Four. At the beginning of the novella, Scrooge seems aware of only the present tense, the tense of capitalism. The now is the time to make or lose money, and the past and future exist only to serve the present. Dickens's attention to clocks and bells reinforces Scrooge's mania with time.
All the images are representing in the language with the rhythm to create a psychological tool for example, That night, Scrooge wakes up and finds the Ghost of Christmas Past, radiating light and looks like a child, accompanying tells, first shown as a lonely child, who is alone at school all summer reading, then, shows his sister Fanny, who will look to take home and together out there, remember the ghost will have a child died, his nephew, Fred. Then he shows his apprenticeship, his master Fezziwig, Dick Wilkins and his girlfriend. Then he shows a sad scene in which his girlfriend leaves him because he had become rich and no longer cared Christmas.
POINT OF VIEW:
Dickens advocated a more benevolent and charitable attitude to children, as the conditions in the era victorian they were adverse: the prostitution , the begging , the treatment of workers and the increase in population as a result of the industralization of the country and the colonialism British in the world.
