characters
Characters…

Dahl’s stories are modern-day fairy tales. His universe is one of magical happenings, peopled by

characters who are

obviously good

or obviously bad.

slide4

This polarization of characters is reinforced by detailed descriptions, usually of their physical attributes. Can you think of any characters that look strange?Dahl uses language to create humour.

slide5
Dahl constructs whole new

languages from sound-words.

‘When all the other giants is galloping off every what way and which to swollop human beans, I is scuddling away to other places to blow dreams into the bedrooms of sleeping children.’ (From the BFG)

the enormous crocodile laughed so much his teeth rattled together like pennies in a moneybox
‘The Enormous Crocodile laughed so much his teeth rattled together like pennies in a moneybox.’

He uses descriptive language to build

a vivid picture in the mind of the reader.

slide7
Dahl presents unusual and

improbable events as ordinary.

‘They all peered down

anxiously at the sharks

who were cruising slowly

round and round the

peach.’

From James

and the Giant Peach
