Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come
What he do?
Frightening and eerie.
Doesn't speak to Scrooge but glides along and points out scenes to him
First shows Scrooge a funeral scene with businessmen wondering about the money that the dead man has left
Ghost takes him through dark alleyways to where three people are going through the belongings of the deceased. Scrooge recognises that his own death could be met this way
Scrooge is upset to see that Tiny Tim has died
Finally the Ghost shows him a tombstone engraved with the name: Ebenezer Scrooge. Scrooge pledges to change his ways if he can avoid this solitary death
...a solemn Phantom, draped and hooded, coming, like a mist along the ground, towards him.
Dickens shows a 'solemn' and spooky spirit
Fills Scrooge with terror
Scrooge feared the silent shape so much that his legs trembled beneath him, and he found that he could hardly stand when he prepared to follow it
Scrooge's trembling legs and inability to stand firm show how he is worried about the future that the ghost will show him
The ghost points wherever he wants Scrooge to look and does not move until he obeyed
Still the Ghost pointed with an unmoved finger to the head
He silently demands that Scrooge pays attention. The silence is unrelenting
