DAHL! 8-Charlie. AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY: A Play. 20 ents il. |. Introduction by Roald Dahl. ADAPTED BY RICHARD GEORGE. Adapted from the original text, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl. Page 3. 1. Chapter 1: Here Comes Charlie. Page 4. Adapted from the original. Synopsis: Mr Wonka's inventions are out of this world. He's thought up every kind of sweet imaginable in his amazing chocolate factory, but no one has ever.

And he made such marvellous things. Mr Wonka shows a similar disregard for the Oompa-Loompas as his new workers. He treats them almost as pets, he gives them no freedom, no pay except for board and lodging, and allows them no contact with the outside world.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Wonka, with his top hat, his wealth, even his eccentricity, is clearly seen as a member of the upper classes, and his arrogance and insensitivity are clearly bound up in that image. Others who are rich, but who are not graced by class, are presented as crass or tasteless.

The parents of the other four children are all well off financially, some are even rich, but their wealth is the tainted wealth of trade and manufacturing, and they are presented as examples of people who are stupid, uncultured, but rich; people who have advanced beyond their natural station in life and who are justly punished for it. The crowd in their extreme reaction assert their acceptance of the special status of the person assaulted.

Nice poor people are polite, clean, honest, hard working, they never complain, their clothes have patches but they are always cleanly washed, their shoes are old but they are neatly polished, they fully accept their place in society and blame no-one for it. The nasty poor were rude, angry, dirty, criminal, probably with alcoholic fathers, sluttish mothers and bullying, aggressive children.

Being poor was presented almost as the noble sacrifice which allows their betters to be comfortably rich.


Often as not, the rewards for being the nice kind of poor people would be to receive a small, but well deserved elevation in social status, for which the lucky recipients were properly and dutifully grateful. The stereotype is a very firm justification of the class system, and an equally firm criticism of those who are ungrateful enough to question the system. But there is no other book by Dahl which is so clearly critical. Do not over-eat, do not chew gum, do not watch too much television, and do not demand to get the things you want.

He wins the prize simply by virtue of being the only one left. Charlie Bucket, as his name implies, is an empty vessel behaving only as an icon of adult views of a good, polite, obedient child. What he really thinks or feels is not relevant to the story, he only needs to be passively good, polite and obedient. It makes them tiddly. You can here them in there now, whooping it up.

They like that best of all.

Buttergin and tonic is also very popular. The historical evidence on the effects on alcohol on the native American and Australian populations, and the use of alcohol as a controlling factor with bonded or exploited labour, does not need stressing.

Texts for children are under greater pressure than texts for adults to conform to current standards of political correctness. Mostly this kind of pressure does not result in changes to an already published text, as changes are normally made by authors in anticipation of social expectation, or are recommended by editors prior to publication.

Editors, publishing houses and authors are usually well aware of the possible criticisms, and are eager to avoid negative responses from the critics, or from the general public, and they avoid possibly offensive material from the beginning.

Questions of race, imperialism, industrial relations, class, gender, and alcohol abuse were of much less concern. With the passing of time, different values and different assumptions about what is, or is not good for children, come into vogue.

In the case of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, only two revisions have been made. Firstly, as discussed above, the origins of the Oompa-Loompas have been changed, and all references to Africa, black skin, and curly hair have been re-written and re-illustrated. Secondly, in the British edition, references to money have been changed from the pre-decimalization coins such as the half-crown, to post decimalisation coins.

This second change was introduced in the edition, and was presumably made in order to remove any confusion with words which had, by that time, largely gone out of circulation. That the Oompa-Loompas were black or from Africa is not in itself racist. The racism comes from the fact that they were exploited and treated as less that human.

Thus, the change in Charlie does not actually remove racism or exploitation — the Oompa-Loompas are still exploited, still treated as less than human, as indeed are the native British workers.

In fact, the only change is to remove their race and their origins.

It is almost as if the message to readers is that it is fine to exploit British workers, fine the exploit the possibly non-human Oompa-Loompas, but only if they are not black. The morality of the changes does not go any deeper than the publishers avoiding charges of criticism of racism against black people, and racism against people of Indian origin is not addressed in any way. Perhaps though, we should not be too quick in accusing Dahl of racist writing. After all, the book is essentially a work of fantasy.

Certainly, Dahl, who as a young man, lived for some time in Africa, and does not display racist tendencies elsewhere in his writings, and did not intend to create negative images of black people, hence his acceptance of the changes made.

As an additional exercise they can put the sentences in story order. I dont know. Activity 3 Answers should include some or all of the following: Box A: Charlie is telling his grandparents that he has found the winning ticket.

The nursery shelves held books galore! Books cluttered up the nursery floor! And in the bedroom, by the bed, More books were waiting to be read! Such wondrous, fine, fantastic tales Of dragons, gypsies, queens, and whales And treasure isles, and distant shores Where smugglers rowed with muffled oars, And pirates wearing purple pants, And sailing ships and elephants, And cannibals crouching 'round the pot, Stirring away at something hot.Mike c.

I do love reading books thoroughly. Look over my other posts. I have only one hobby: art collecting.
