The main character Ed Kennedy learns to adopt better qualities of humanity. In one of his missions, he gives a family a warm welcoming Christmas, who is new to the neighborhood because no one has ever come to meet them or help them. Ed decides to “brighten up the Tatupu house this year”(Pg.221) by buying them Christmas lights exactly the same as the old ones and realizes that “It’s not a big thing, but I guess it’s true—big things are often just small things that are noticed”(Pg.221). Ed knows that buying the same lights is not huge and expensive, but he understands that small things are big. Money is not only thing that can make someone happy; it’s the littlest things that can bright up someone’s life, which is what the author shows in I am the Messenger.
The reader is meant to be able to identify with the magic and beauty of Christmas whilst at the same time it makes them reflect on their attitudes and makes them think what they could do to be a better person in general, not just at Christmas time. The whole concept of the ghosts isn’t just thrown in for the fact that it is a Christmas tale; the ghosts are key elements within the story. They are actually viewed by some people as an extended metaphor, and could be acting as Scrooge’s conscience which takes him through different stages of his life, which in effect means that the ability to be a nice person was within him all
He believes he can regain Daisy. Although he has the wealth that can match with the leisured class, he does not have their manners. His tragedy lies in his possession of a naive sense.

His life is dedicated to the recovery and renewal of an early love with Daisy, whose “voice is full of money.”(Fitzgerald, 2001: 11) He believes in Daisy and manages to protect her.
This differentiates from the characters Linda and Willy in ‘Death of a Salesman” where they are living in a “small, fragile-seeming home” and the in detail yet minimal use of furniture. Perhaps because it is a stage and not everything can be described as explicitly as a novel but nonetheless, the overall mood shows the lack of money keeping them happy. Here you can see the happiness of having money to spend in comparison of having no money at all. Both Miller and Fitzgerald show their life in a chapter almost to do with wealth. Fitzgerald had a very wealthy lifestyle compared to most Americans and Miller was the

At this time Victorian society was a very Christian society. In the story, which is about Christmas, Dickens emphasizes the religious aspect of Christmas, as he looked at the themes of ones duty or obligation to treating mankind generously. Christian values say that people should be kind and give money to the poor.

Shelly shows that aesthetics, intelligence, happiness and sadness are all conducive to the person’s context. The creature’s aesthetics are conducive to his maker, just like real people because of their parents. His intelligence is founded upon the books he reads and the environment he is in, “I knew and could distinguish nothing...I could hardly describe to you the effect of these books”, just like people in society are, as well by their parents and environments. His happiness and sadness are conducive to his creators love and lack of it, just like many in society. Shelly makes the creature into the symbolic embodiment of neglect by society, neglect by parents and neglect by science.
