His simple descriptive style with colloquial lexis is modern and unpretentious.In contrast to murderful he uses the words ‘whopsey whiffling’.The ‘Bloodbottler’ in particular, has a very similar dialect to the BFG except he tends to use more coining’s.The bloodbottler is less articulate than the BFG as he reverses phrases and collocations to make them sound cruder but yet simple.The word whiffling may have been borrowed from Jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll.

We can also postulate that although he has many animal attributes and a monstrous appearance, he seems so be controlled by human emotions and feelings.There will always be many versions of Grendel’s physical appearance, and all will remain true until the author tells us otherwise.The hero of the poem, Beowulf describes Grendel as a “Jotun” which we now translate to mean “giant” in modern English.If this is true, then it can also be assumed that Grendel has a slightly man-like appearance and mannerisms.Beowulf, author unknown.

” Its’ origin is carefully described: “… the Queen ordered a smaller one to be made for me… ” Its design and dimensions are carefully recorded: “… This traveling Closet was an exact Square with a Window in the Middle of three of the Squares… “, etc.The second is to prepare the reader for Gulliver’s eventual escape.There is a dual purpose to what we might call the “liar’s emphasis” lavished on this passage.This happens in his traveling box which is then conveniently destroyed by the sailors who rescue him so that no substantial evidence of his adventure remains, and the gullible can easily believe the whole story of Gulliver among the Brobdingnags.The important detail of the box’s construction which will eventually allow for Gulliver’s sa...

These stories are retold and sometimes exaggerated and as a result, we get the Scandinavian folklore that we read about, and enjoy today.This legend of the Kraken is most likely a creature we know exists in the ocean, the giant squid.It is quite possible that a giant squid could attack a small ship and actually capsize it.On at least three occasions in the 1930s these giant squid were said to have aggressively approached and disrupt a ship.Even though the ship might be small, over the years, stories of this first hand encounter could have been overly exaggerated over and over again making a story of a small fishing dingy getting capsized by a giant squid into the legend of the gigantic Kraken capable of downing a full size ship with ease...

A lesson learned from both texts is that actions will eventually attack you as well.To begin with, in The Tell-Tale Heart the author uses a descriptive tone to describe the murder’s feelings for the one was killed.I knew what the old man felt, and pitied him, although I chuckled at heart.” During the time of the character trying to murder the old man the author uses the tone and descriptive language to describe one thing in a luxurious way with showing the reader that the character was about to yawn.Overall, both stories signify how descriptive language and revealing actions will come together to form a confession.“She began to cry silently for the wickedness of the world..” Using the descriptive language trait, the author describes ho...

Like Gulliver whose sight is gradually sharpened voyage after voyage, Swift urges those reading to open their eyes to the faults of not only those around them, but to the faults within themselves in order to rid society of corruption and thus making the world a better place.Using satire, Swift wrote Gulliver’s Travel as a warning and alert to a society in denial of their own vice.In this voyage, Swift makes a more direct mockery of the faults of English society by utilizing the contrast in size between the giants and Gulliver.Through size, Swift parallels the faults of English society between Gulliver and the Lilliputians with Gulliver and the people of Brognignag.The corrupt nature of men in Gulliver’s Travels is ruthfully exposed befor...
