Underground Man as Scrooge
Today, while re-reading the passage about Underground Man's childhood, all I could think about was Scrooge from A Christmas Carol. They were both sent off to boarding schools at a relatively young age with relatives that just didn't seem to care. They also both didn't really have friends while at school. I think it is really interesting that people, or characters as a reflection of real people, tend to be so severely impacted by their childhood and school experiences.
