The structure of ‘A Christmas Carol’ uses a similar structure to a song to present a moral tale of transformation at Christmas. The reason why the novella is set out in five Staves and is because each Stave follows the action of the story. It has a clear beginning, middle and end through which we see a character's transformation:
The first stave sets the scene.
The middle stave showing the turning point for Scrooge.
The final stave concluding the story by presenting him as a changed man.
