Fear is presented though Scrooge’s character although initially it comes across as a miserly and negative attitude towards people and their foibles. As a Christmas carol progresses, Scrooge’s fear of love becomes apparent from his own father’s rejection of him and his beloved sister’s death that then manifests in his own rejection of Belle and his nephew Fred. His fear then becomes a real one when realises if he doesn’t change his ways and stop being afraid of letting people into his life, he will die lonely and afraid.
