Ghost of Christmas Past
From the 'crown' of its head
Suggests the light is a thing to be proud of
Either child or old man
'face had not a wrinkle'
Its hair: 'white with age'
Changes all the time the more you look
Is also the same all the time
Effect on Scrooge
Forces him to view certain scenes
'pinioned his arms'
Makes sure he learns what he needs to for his own good
Scrooge doubts it
'could not help thinking that a night of unbroken rest would have been more conducive to that end'
Still doubts the spirit and its intention
Draws emotion from him
Scrooge also 'rejoiced beyond all bounds'
Very quickly Scrooge 'sobbed'
Scrooge feel comfortable in its presence
Quickly admits to past and shows nostalgia and sadness
'cold eye glisten'
What he does
Shows Scrooge scenes
Makes sure Scrooge sees the scenes
'pinioned his arms
Forces Scrooge to acknowledge emotions
'"Your lip is trembling"'
Explains what is happening
Makes sure Scrooge understands
'"These are but shadows"'
White and trimmed
Shows purity of Christmas past (duh)
Trimmed with flowers - summer - another contradiction
Doesn't work - you can't extinguish the light
Puts out the spirit's light
Literally says 'wintry emblem'
'sheen', 'beautiful', 'sparkled'
