James and the Giant Peach is a beloved story about a young boy who is being raised by two difficult aunts – until he finds an escape through, as the title suggests, a giant peach. He is met by creatures of all sorts, such as worms and grasshoppers, and while the book is fantastical and funny it also has its dark elements.
Dahl’s writing is parallel to his plotlines – creative, and both humorous and dark. The following quote is a poetic passage from James and the Giant Peach that will give you an insight into Dahl’s mind and James’ story, demonstrating his style of dark humor:
“We may see a Creature with forty-nine heads
Who lives in the desolate snow,
And whenever he catches a cold (which he dreads)
He has forty-nine noses to blow.
‘We may see the venomous Pink-Spotted Scrunch
Who can chew up a man with one bite.
It likes to eat five of them roasted for lunch
And eighteen for its supper at night.
‘We may see a Dragon, and nobody knows
That we won’t see a Unicorn there…”
