Despite his popularity among his contemporaries Dickens has not been lost in time with his novels and written traditions still kept alive today.When the story digresses and Scrooge embarks on his first of the three journeys he sees the town he grew up in and “muttered, with an unusual catching in his voice” when asked what was on his cheek to which he replied it was “a pimple”.“No warmth could warm him, no wintry weather chill him.The reader realizes at this point perhaps why Scrooge became the bitter man he is as we see “A solitary child, neglected by his friends, is left there still”.We quickly learn that this is Scrooge as “he sobbed”.

In conclusion after close analysis of both stories I have seen that both stories are great for maintaining tension and use techniques such as alliteration, pathetic fallacy and are good to create confusion among the readers.The story begins in Munich the weather is idyllic “The sun was shining brightly on Munich, and the air was full of the joyousness of the early summer” is the weather too idyllic?Again the language barrier is there and the personification has the desired effect “the storm of snow he comes before long time” also the dialogue become vague and broken creating more tension here vampirism applied ‘mouths red with blood”, we see that the protagonist seems to doubt his sanity a lot like Dickens character “The Signal Man” it s...

I personally believe that the arguments against censorship outweigh the arguments for, however there comes a point where freedom of speech can be abused by an artist, for example, the song “f**k s**t stack” by beatboxer and rapper Reggie Watts isn’t likely to be played on a radio station because of the fact that the lyrics are almost all offensive words, which is understandable, however censorship for political reasons, or, simply because the committee in charge doesn 't like the music, as was the case when the BBC censored rock and pop in the mid 20th century.Music Censorship refers to the regulation of audio recordings and performances by an approved commission, for example the FCC (Federal Communications Commission).Since the inventio...
