2 Spot the Difference

3 In the extract, Larry is presented as a strong character through the absence of adjectives and focus on verbs. As a result, when describing Larry, Francis focuses on his actions. His power is demonstrated by the fact that he is a man of action. Moreover, the quality of the verbs “swung”, “hit”, “led” convey strength. In the opening therefore, Larry is presented as active whilst others are passive. In the extract, Larry is presented as strong through the use of verbs such as “swung”, “hit” and “led” which convey strength and power. As a result, the reader has an idea early on that, although not described obviously, he is highly active and as a result, is potentially threatening.

4 Spot the Difference In the extract, Larry is presented as a strong character through the absence of adjectives and focus on verbs. As a result, when describing Larry, Francis focuses on his actions. His power is demonstrated by the fact that he is a man of action. Moreover, the quality of the verbs “swung”, “hit”, “led” convey strength. This is in sharp contrast to the sentence in which Francis describes his own actions- “I stood”. Larry is presented as active whilst others are passive. In the extract, Larry is presented as strong through the use of verbs such as “swung”, “hit” and “led” which convey strength and power. As a result, the reader has an idea early on that, although not described obviously, he is highly active and as a result, is potentially threatening.

I stood with the other kids at nine o’clock in the June morning in front of the building. A tall slim man stepped into view, a lock of blond hair tumbling over his forehead, a smile revealed dazzling movie-star teeth. ‘Good morning,’ he said. ‘My name is Larry LaSalle.’ ‘Is that his real name?’ Joey LeBlanc asked in a whisper that carried over the crowd. He was often punished by the nuns for talking out of turn. ‘That’s right – it’s real,’ Larry LaSalle said. And for some reason, the crowd applauded. Larry LaSalle had the broad shoulders of an athlete and the narrow hips of a dancer. He was both. He swung the bat with authority as he hit home runs in games at the sandlot next door and later led us through vigorous exercises and callisthenics. He was also a dancer, with a touch of Fred Astaire in his walk, his feet barely touching the floor. He could tap-dance with machine-gun speed and make daring leaps across the stage. But he was most of all a teacher, leading classes in dancing, arts and crafts, organising a choral group, directing musical shows.

10 In the extract, the Larry is presented as a strong character. We can see this through the repetitive use of pronouns “he”, reflecting Francis’ fixation on what Larry was doing. By repeatedly starting sentences with “he”, it creates a list-like format, emphasising now only the wide variety of what Larry is and does but also Francis’ fixation; Larry has a hold over him already. At this point in the story therefore, Cormier presents the depth of Larry’s strength without obviously dominating people.
