Figurative language in A Christmas Carol.

High School Teacher
A Christmas Carol is full of figurative language. Here are some examples to get you going:
"Old Marley was as dead as a door-nail."
Scrooge was ". . . solitary as an oyster."
"The ancient tower of a church, whose gruff old bell was always peeping slily down at Scrooge."
The bell is also described as having "teeth" that chatter in its frozen head when it announces the hours.
". . . the houses opposite were mere phantoms."
