The structure of the paragraph:
The quality of the paragraph:
We are going to look at an extract from The Iron Man, by Ted Hughes. All the capital letters, speech marks, full stops and commas are missing, and there are no paragraph breaks.
The Iron Man stood up straight. Slowly he turned, till he was looking directly at Hogarth. “We’re sorry we trapped you and buried you,” shouted the little boy. “We promise we’ll not deceive you again. Follow us and you can have all the metal you want. Brass too. Aluminium too. And lots of chrome. Follow us.”The Iron Man pushed aside the boughs and came into the lane. Hogarth joined the farmers. Slowly they drove back down the lane, and slowly, with all his cogs humming, the Iron Man stepped after them.They led through the villages. Half the people came out to stare, half ran to shut themselves inside bedrooms and kitchens. Nobody could believe their eyes when they saw the Iron Man marching behind the farmers.At last they came to the town, and there was a great scrap-metal yard. Everything was there, old cars by the hundred, old trucks, old railway engines, old stoves, old refrigerators, old springs, bedsteads, bicycles, girders, gates, pans – all the scrap iron of the region was piled up there, rusting away.
from The Iron Man, Ted Hughes, Faber, 2001
