SOCIAL REJECTS
DISABILITY
”They are
"
wild
"
as they mocked him about his disability

-

innocent as strawberries

remind us that they are young and unaware of his disability.

-The Huchback is contrasted to the kids as they are young, have company.


Isolated through a disability through
locks and chains

Solitary


which means only one suggesting that he is lonely.

Crooked bone

suggesting that he is old.
THE HUNCHBACK
- “
Sleep in a dog kennel

- “
Chains” “locks

suggest that he was treated like a dog.
The Hunchback is compared to a dog...
The Woman

The “truant boys"
The Hunchback is contrasted to a “
straight young woman
” represents perfection and youth which he does not have.
SETTING
SIMILIES
STRUCTURE
The Hunchback is limited to freedom as he is locked in his body
He is tormented by the children in the park and has to hide from the park keeper.
"That lets the
trees
and
water
enter"
"In the
fountain basin
"
"Like the
park birds
he came early"
"Like the
water
he sat down"

"The
birds
the
grass
the
trees
the
lake"
"Alone between nurses and
swans
"
"After the
railings
and
shrubberies
"
Has enjambment, for example in stanza 7 when the boys ran past
“the birds the grass the trees the lake”
without commas which suggests the amount of energy the boys had when they were running along the railings and the shrubberies.
7 stanzas long
6 lines in them
Repeated rhyme of
‘park’
and
‘dark’
and the effect of this is to remind us of where the Hunchback is there all the time.
The first and last verses have 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This may even get our sympathy and feelings for this old man being in a public place but on his own
"day"
and
"night"

"straight"
and
"crooked bones"

reality and imagination
him being alone and the boys all together
"wild"
and
"innocent"
silence and
"laughter"
Don't judge people
Makes us think if we have done anything as cruel as this.

Comparison
Give
The Clown Punk
Reminds us of the Hunchback of Notre Dame
"Bell"
CONTRAST
"Like the park birds he came early"
"Like the water he sat down"
"Straight as a young elm"
Lots of the language suggests this magical world of the boys and their imagiantion is shown by the
surreal similes and metaphors.
Lines 4-5 and 37

give a sense that the park doesn't 'exist' after the gates are locked.
The park is '
unmade
' in a way that is messy

Metaphor compares the hunchback to a dog linking with chains and kennel.
- "
roar on the rockery
"; this also uses onomatopoeia to suggest the sound of the tigers ( the boys playing at tigers)

- "
Sunday Sombre
" Suggest how sad the Hunchback is when the park is closed and the alteration emphasis this.
