Dickens called his novel 'A Christmas Carol' because he expected the story to be repeated and shared between generations. He also intended it to bring people together as one, just like the singing of Christmas carols spread joy and bring families together. His carol was a song of praise of the Chris…tmas season and of the recovery of Ebenezer Scrooge, form miserable to joyful. Cleverly, Dickens called the five chapters of the book "staves." A musical stave is a stanza with a consistent theme and mood. Each stave in the story delivers a different message and each has a definite mood. As in a carol each stave can stand alone but each contributes to the carol's overall theme. A good carol also contains a memorable refrain, repeated at appropriate times throughout. In Dickens' A Christmas Carol the refrain is no doubt the blessing from Tiny Tim, "God bless us every one!" It's a refrain that has been repeated countless times since the publishing of A Christmas Carol. The story sings the praises of the sentiments of the Christmas season in a memorable way and will be repeated as long as carols and the Christmas season endure. ( Full Answer )
