Description

If this had never been between us,’ said the girl, looking mildly, but with steadiness, upon him;’ tell me, would you seek me out and try to win me now . This must be distinctly understood, or nothing wonderful can come of the story I am going to relate. Thus secured against surprise, he took off his cravat; put on his dressing-gown and slippers, and his nightcap; and sat down before the fire to take his gruel.

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 . The darkness and the mist had vanished with it, for it was a clear, cold, winter day, with snow upon the ground. He doesn’t understand why he should pay a day’s wages for no work, but he lets Cratchit leave on the condition that he will arrive early on Boxing Day.

That, and its livid colour, made it horrible; but its horror seemed to be in spite of the face and beyond its control, rather than a part or its own expression. He was conscious of a thousand odours floating in the air, each one connected with a thousand thoughts, and hopes, and joys, and cares long, long, forgotten. Even the blind men’s dogs appeared to know him; and when they saw him coming on, would tug their owners into doorways and up courts; and then would wag their tails as though they said, ` No eye at all is better than an evil eye, dark master! This is in contrast to Scrooge's townhouse residence, which is likely to be closer to Cornhill - the more fashionable financial district.

The quarter was so long, that he was more than once convinced he must have sunk into a doze unconsciously, and missed the clock. Why did I walk through crowds of fellow-beings with my eyes turned down , and never raise them to that blessed Star which led the Wise Men to a poor abode!

stiffened his gait; made his eyes red, his thin lips blue and spoke out shrewdly in his grating voice. Set in the dreary streets of Victorian London, A Christmas Carol not only captures the spirit of Christmas but also serves as a social commentary on the plight of the poor and the importance of compassion and generosity. It was a strange figure -- like a child: yet not so like a child as like an old man , viewed through some supernatural medium, which gave him the appearance of having receded from the view, and being diminished to a child’s proportions.He was obliged to rub the frost off with the sleeve of his dressing-gown before he could see anything; and could see very little then. He did pause, with a moment’s irresolution, before he shut the door; and he did look cautiously behind it first , as if he half-expected to be terrified with the sight of Marley’s pigtail sticking out into the hall.
