That which promised happiness when we were one in heart, is fraught with misery now that we are two . In a changed nature; in an altered spirit; in another atmosphere of life; another Hope as its great end. Scrooge glanced about him on the floor, in the expectation of finding himself surrounded by some fifty or sixty fathoms of iron cable: but he could see nothing. The pathetic fallacy of the "feeble" fire creates a miserable atmosphere and adds to the sympathy we feel for Scrooge.

But the relentless Ghost pinioned him in both his arms, and forced him to observe what happened next. This also tells us that S does not want to cook, instead he gets other people to make dinner for him. It was a large house, but one of broken fortunes; for the spacious offices were little used, t heir walls were damp and mossy, their windows broken, and their gates decayed. You must have been very slow about it, Jacob,’ Scrooge observed, in a business-like manner , though with humility and deference.You may talk vaguely about driving a coach-and-six up a good old flight of stairs, or through a bad young Act of Parliament ; but I mean to say you might have got a hearse up that staircase, and taken it broadwise, with the splinter-bar towards the wall and the door towards the balustrades: and done it easy . While it reflects how many people think about Christmas, it is also a key source for popular Christmas traditions. In the back and forth about marriage the story drops hints about Scrooge’s past that will become clear later. His colour changed though, when, without a pause, it came on through the heavy door, and passed into the room before his eyes.

It isn’t that,’ said Scrooge, heated by the remark, and speaking unconsciously like his former, not his latter, self. There’s another fellow,’ muttered Scrooge; who overheard him: ` my clerk, with fifteen shillings a week, and a wife and family , talking about a merry Christmas. Its hair, which hung about its neck and down its back, was white as if with age; and yet the face had not a wrinkle in it, and the tenderest bloom was on the skin.Just want to add some ideas, then take a look at these annotated staves against yours and have a re-read of the staves. And even Scrooge was not so dreadfully cut up by the sad event, but that he was an excellent man of business on the very day of the funeral, and solemnised it with an undoubted bargain. He has the power to render us happy or unhappy; to make our service light or burdensome; a pleasure or a toil. Camden Town in Victorian England was a crowded inner-London suburb (not the hipster hangout we all know and love today!

Scrooge went to bed again, and thought, and thought, and thought it over and over, and could make nothing of it. If I could work my will,’ said Scrooge indignantly, `every idiot who goes about with “Merry Christmas” on his lips, should be boiled with his own pudding, and buried with a stake of holly through his heart. A large, easy to read font and left-justified text for children who struggle to access the printed word. It is enough that by degrees the children and their emotions got out of the parlour, and by one stair at a time, up to the top of the house; where they went to bed, and so subsided. Now, it is a fact, that there was nothing at all particular about the knocker on the door, except that it was very large.To sit, staring at those fixed glazed eyes, in silence for a moment, would play, Scrooge felt, the very deuce with him. The fireplace was an old one, built by some Dutch merchant long ago, and paved all round with quaint Dutch tiles , designed to illustrate the Scriptures.
