The ghost of Christmas present and in stave four the Ghost ofChristmas Yet To Come
After Scrooge has reformed his life at the end of Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol he invites Bob Cratchit to him for some 'smoking bishop' what did he mean?
Smoking Bishop is hot, spiced wine similar to wassail -- something like a hot sangria, scented with oranges and infused with port. This kind of drink was commonly served at the end of a meal. The little ceremonies attached to it and the various personal recipies make it a very hospitable concoction.… ( Full Answer )
he pays bob 15 shillings a week which roughly about 5p now 2nd Answer: The above figure is correct. While not dire poverty, it is quite low. It works out to 39 pounds per year. "Family wages" for Victorian England was probably closer to 50 pounds per year, and even at that it would be a very modes…t living with very little or anything left for luxuries or "extras". A skilled tradesman would earn more that Bob if fully employed, so it is strange that Bob, a white collar worker who would have had a marketable skill, would accept such wages. Of course if he didn't there wouldn't be much of a story, so perhaps its not best to take Dickens as a study in economics. ( Full Answer )
Even in 1843, a turkey was an emblem of fullness and prosperity -- something only the wealthy could afford. Scrooge gave this to the Cratchits to ensure that they would have a feast they deserved, as a kind and loving family.
In Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol , Scrooge sends a young boy to buy a turkey on Christmas Day, which he plans to send to the Cratchit's as a surprise. Firstly, Mr. Cratchit is a poor man who is forced by Scrooge to work a lot as his clerk. He loves Christmas. He has a sick son named Tiny Tim… and also has a wife. ( Full Answer )
Because Bob was his poor accountant. he wanted to show Scrooge how terrible he was to let the man and his family live like that.
They represent the majority of the population in the time, hardworking and not well off. The Cratchits represent a moral. You don't have to be rich to behappy, basically. Scrooge is rich, but he's lonely and isolated, soconsequently, he isn't happy. But there you have the Cratchits, whoare poor, do… hard work, are burdened by the sadness of their sonbeing a cripple, and are still happy. Because they are together,they have each other. when watching them, Scrooge realises whathe's been missing out on, begins to understand why christmasmatters even to poor people, and also starts to regret thestinginess and cold-nature he shows to his clerk. Since the wholebook is effectively about the infamous misers journey ofself-discovery, he learns from the characters he witnesses, when hesees the Cratchits, it softens him to the poor. ( Full Answer )
Because he is a very kind and humble man. He is grateful to Scrooge even for the miserable few shillings he earns every week.
Because Bob (somehow) sincerely believed that Scrooge was worthy of thanks for this meal. Mrs. Cratchit (obviously) disagreed.
Bob remained loyal to Scrooge. He thought that Scooge althoughfinacially rich was poor in life and this saddened Bob.
That is correct. Scrooge under-paid Cratchit, treated him badly, knew nothing about his home life, threatened to fire him, and (apparently) barely viewed him as a human being. But he was Cratchit's boss.
He went to ask forgiveness for his behavior to his nephew Fredshome and accepted his invitation to dine with them
They were a large family of victorian times who were poor. Theylived in a terranced house in Camden Town london. Their youngestchild Tim suffered illnesses which they could not seek medical helpfor as it was to costly and therefore the child had simpley to bemade comfortable until the inevitable occ…ured. Bob the fatherearned only fifteen shillings each week whcih was not a huge amountof money. Thei home was poorly decorated and furnished - However,they were happy as a family ( Full Answer )
He gets this feeling of love/care when he sees Cratchit and his family at the dinner table and when he sees Tiny Tim. He regrets his actions towards Cratchit and he wants to make him feel better. He experiences to love, joy, caring, and kindness by just looking at their happy family.
Scrooge usually worked on Christmas Day.. He hated Christmas andsaw it only as a means to get money out of honest employers
To contrast the life he chose with the life he could have had if hea chosen differently.
Earlier in the book Scrooge had said, "if the poor are going to die, then they had better do it and decrease the surplus population." Scrooge know feels bad about saying this because at this house he finds out that tiny tim will die. Mabey this will help change Scrooges cold-hearted personality.
There are eight Cratchits: . Mr. Bob Cratchit . Mrs Cratchit . Martha . Peter . Belinda . Small boy - never named . Small girl - never named . Tiny Tim
On the first occasion to she how they lived and to understand bobslife . On the second occasion it was to witness the impact of TinyTims death on the family should he not get the medical help needed.
They would open simple presents and sit around a small coal firewhich they cooked on as well making their Christmas dinner. Atabout 11 am Bob would take Tiny Time to Church to celebrateChristmas and on returning home would site with the family, eattheir simple dinner and play games
He arranges the purchase of the largest turkey in the poulterersand has this sent to Bob Cratchit, he goes to his Nephews to begforgiveness and agrees to stay to celebrate Christmas and on theway sees 2 business men how asked him for a charitable donation forthe poor and needy and gives them his wor…d on such a donation ( Full Answer )
Because Scrooge gives him bob a raise and now the family was mean to Scrooge no nice,
Bob Cratchit is unassuming and gentle and tries to see the positivein Scrooge where Mrs Cratchit hates Scrooge and seeks to give him apiece of her mid for the ways he treats Bob
They are not alike. Scrooge is a mean individual who cares for noone whilst Bob is a meek and mild loving family man who tries tosee the good in everyone
He tells Bob that he is going to raise his salary. Then he tellshim to buy another coal scuttle and bulk up the fire before he dotsanother "I" or crosses another "t"
Thye are not alike . Scrooge is a cold misery old man who careslittle for anyone whilst Bob is a loving father who tries t see thegood in all and takes time to be part of a loving family despitehis poverty
