A Christmas Carol Background
Charles Dickens wrote very many books and the one that we are doing is on a Christmas carol. He wrote it to show how or what he saw when it was Christmas. He try to tell you through out the story about a generous soul or someone that has a kind heart but in the beginning of the story scrooge isn't very kind hearted. He also what us to see how he embodiment the story or how he made it come to life. he wanted it to be perfect and grand. He wanted it to seem as if you were in the Victorian era.
Charles Dickens put a lot of people that influenced what he wrote. Like in some of his books its a girl he feel in love with. Or his step wife died sister. But in a Christmas Carol he but himself in. He put some of himself in Scrooge. He never really loved his child hood and never talked about it much. When he was young his father was in det. He went to prison and Charles had to work to pay the det off but his parents never got him out of there and so he got himself out. He wanted to become a writer and so he did. I think he wrote this story because so he could get the angry he had inside of him for so long he just had to let it out in his own way.
Child labor and Proverty
Since there was the Industrial revolution child labor was used to help their families get out of debt. This was a very poor time in history. Children had to work in the tights places because the adults couldn't fit in the places. And the poverty was bad because people did not get pay that much. The workforce was 1/4 of children at this time. This had the biggest impact on England and the US.
