The Ghost of Christmas Past
The first ghost to visit Scrooge, the small, elderly figure represents memory.
‘It was a strange figure – like a child: yet not so like a child’
‘It wore a tunic of the purest white’
‘Branch of fresh green holly’
‘Figure itself fluctuated’
‘Crown of its head there sprung a bright clear jet of light’
‘Would you so soon put out the light I give’
