The Christmas Carol revolves around the life of an grumpy old man by the name of Scrooge,who seems to have no joy or happiness , especially around one of the most joyful holidays of the year. Not only is this man grumpy and nasty to those he surrounds himself with but is selfish and ungrateful. We therefore can conclude that Scrooge is not the typical "peoples person". Scrooges emotions and actions towards others seems to display a negative factor towards his personality , showing that he is just angry and depressed . Especially when a dearest friend died recently , making him appear to be heartless .
Towards the end of the stave , Scrooge is surprised and scared by an usual thing , his friend Marleys ghost . Scrooge seems to be utterly surprised but not at all as scared as someone should be . This ghost however seems to appear with chains , like he has suffered.Being friends with Scrooge before he died the ghost appears because he is trying to save Scrooge from the cruel afterlife by telling him that three ghost will be making appearances to him and he has to change.
According to the thesis of king , were all naturally crazy and that horror relieves tensions ,these ghosts are going to horrify Scrooge with his future that he has to change.
