Q & R: Christmas Carol

By Brooklyn Barnes 

"Were there no poor homes to which it's light would have conducted me? Scrooge was very much dismayed to hear the specter going at this rate." (page. 42). Scrooge was distressed and felling pain. This caught him off guard. He didn't interact with different groups. He was in a small house living a small life. I picked this picture because it shows how the poor would beg for money so the rich people wouldn't go out as much because of that.
"...the previous Monday for being drunk and blood thirsty in the streets strive up to the marrow's pudding in his garret." (page 24) The streets are crazy and the upper class don't go out as much. The mayor Lord is very stronghold and so he gives orders to go out so he doesn't have too. I picked this picture because it shows how the streets where explained in the book, poor and in need.
"...one vast smile in came the three. Miss Fezziwigs beaming and lovable... some boldly, some gracefully, some awkwardly, some pushing, some pulling: in all they came." (page 63) Most people came in with a good spirit but others came in awkwardly. This can tell the different groups personality. I picked this picture because it shows a different social group coming in with different personality's.
"For again Scrooge saw himself. He was older how; a man in the prime of life. His face had not the harsh and rigid lines of later years; but it begun to wear the signs of care and avarice... he was not alone a fair young girl was in the light from the ghost of Christmas past." (page 67) This was the ghost of Christmas past. He was like Scrooge, lines of years and showed signs of greed for wealth and care. I picked this picture because this is what Scrooge could have looked like, older and showed signs of wealth.
"The sight of poor revelers appeared to interest the Spirit very much for he stood with Scrooge beside the him in the bakery doorway." (page 87) This explains the symbol of poor. This effected the economic structure by wealth. This tells the sides of economic and social structure. I picked this picture because it tills a story of the social groups and shows how they were placed from the beginning.
"It may be that in the sight of heaven you are more worthless and less fit to live than millions like the poor man's child." (page 98) This talks about how you many be poor in earthly statements but you might be rich of blessing in the heavens. You may be in a low social group on earth but in heaven you could be one of the high social groups. I picked this picture because it divides the social groups into parts and can teach about the social groups.
"...set up thine altar here, and dress it with such terrors as thou hast at thy command; for this is thy dominion" (page 130) This sounds like ti would be in the scriptures because it has thoughtful phases & words. This improves the understanding directly of knowing what Dicken's means. I picked this picture because writing and wording in the book is very important to fully understand the Christmas Carol.
"The phantom glided on into a street. Its' finger pointed to tow persons meeting. Scrooge listened again, thinking that the explanation might lie here." (page 121) The choice of words are very professional and not casual. The creates a educational experience for the reader to learn and understand. I picked this picture because it shows the streets and people meeting and wondering what those people are talking about.
"An intelligent boy! said Scrooge. A remarkable boy!" (page 146) The little kids are very good and aren't afraid to talk, they are smart and a delight. This boy is young and could have grown up in any social group but has been taught to talk to others. I picked this picture because its' a small child, it could look like the boy Scrooge was talking too.
"He dressed himself all in his best and at last got into the streets... people pouring forth to see the ghost of Christmas past." (page 148) The people from all different social groups loved the ghost from Christmas past. This caused the people in the 19th century to maybe have a better social economic structure because they had hope. I picked this picture because this is how I think the ghost of Christmas past presented himself, the kids loved him and gave hope.
