Define the term “deuteragonist“. Based on your own definition, do you think Jacob Marley is the deuteragonist in A Christmas Carol, or is he simply a minor character. Explain your reasoning.

Secondarily, what is Jacob Marley’s main conflict? Do you believe he will resolve his conflict before the book ends? Why or why not? Is Scrooge’s conflict the same as Marley’s? Is it different? How is Marley’s conflict the same or different from Scrooge’s conflict?
