Dickens Christmas Carol

We have now met Marley’s Ghost. Hideous creature that he is.christmas_carol_2.jpg.728x520_q85 He visited Scrooge with heavy chains and money boxes tied to his waist. He is imprisoned in his inability to help anyone. He tells Scrooge he wears the chain he forged in life. He says that Scrooge’s chain was as long as his seven Christmas’s ago and that he has labored on it since. He Declares it has grown into  a ponderous chain! What do you think ponderous means in that Sentence.?

Question what do you believe the chain symbolizes or represents in the story?

Do you believe that people create their own (chains)  life through their actions at least some of the time?
