In the novel A Christmas Carol, the author [Charles Dickens pg. 637] stated, “Spirit, please, make me visible! Make me audible! I want to talk to my nephew and my niece”! This proves that scrooge is a dynamic character. In the beginning of the novel Fred tried to invite Scrooge over for Christmas dinner. Scrooge did not listen to him my saying “Bah Humbug” [Dickens 603] and “Good afternoon” [Dickens 604] to get rid of his nephew because he obviously wanted no part with him. Scrooge later wanted to talk to them about apologizing the way he acted towards him. He also wanted to celebrate Christmas with them. Scrooge wanted to be with his nephew and niece on Christmas rather then it being an average work day. Also in the novel the Christmas Carol, the author [Dickens pg.646] stated, “I will honor Christmas in my heart and try to keep it all year. I will live in the past, the present, and the future. The spirits of all three shall strive within me. I will not shut out the lessons that they teach. Oh tell me that I will sponge away the writing that is upon this stone”. This is a huge part of how scrooge is a dynamic character. Scrooge said that he will honor Christmas all throughout the year and in the beginning of the story he took in as just another ordinary day. He will remember the past the present and the future. In the very beginning of the novel Scrooge did not care about his past live, the activity going on now and the upcoming. All he cared about was making enough money for himself. In the beginning when Marley said that you are going to be visited by three ghosts. Scrooge said that he would rather not. Then he said he would always keep the lessons that they taught within him and he would always let them strive with him. Those two are examples of how Scrooge has changed throughout the book of the lessons the ghost have taught him. That shows that Scrooge is a dynamic character.
