Novel Notes: Stave 4 and 5

This Season's Wearables: For the Gentleman

  • Your woolen frock coat in basic black is never out of style. The right length is just to the knee. Add color with a bright silk cravat (necktie) and waistcoat (vest) over a shirt of extra-fine linen.
  • Your gloves can be colored for the street, but white for dinner and parties and black for funerals is still the rule.
  • Walking boots must be practical until our city finds a way to keep its streets free of garbage and filthy water.
  • Accessorize with a cane or an umbrella, and your outfit is complete and fit for most occasions daily life will offer.
  • Some gentlemen are inquiring about the new fashion in beards. Yes, our soldiers are returning from the Crimean War with more whiskers than we are accustomed to seeing on the streets of London. If you want hair, however, indulge yourself in a longish cut, but let it stay on your head, not your face. A close, clean shave will be correct as far into the future as we can predict.

Literary Element:

Foreshadowing is the use of clues or hints to suggest events that will occur later in the story. In Stave Four, the Ghost of Christmas To Come gives Scrooge several hints about the discovery that awaits him at the end of their visit. Note these clues as you spot them. Why does Scrooge fail to recognize them as quickly as you do?
