ANALYSIS OF STYLISTIC DEVICES At first, we want to explain, what happened before. As I explained at the beginning, Will pretends to be a father of of little son. He succeeds and meets a woman, who takes care of Marcus. Marcus is bullied by schoolmates, but the teachers and the mother say, "keep out of their way". Marcus mother Fiona wanted to kill herself, and as a result, Marcus won't live with her together. He thinks, when she wants to kill herself again, he would be alone. Moreover, he doesn't like, how his mother acts now. Now, we want to read only few pages. Seite 106-110 Absatz Already in the first lines we found a simile. When Marcus is attacked by his classmates with candy, Will says this phrase to emphasize that the children throw very hard confectionery, which can do "as much damage as rocks” (l. 32, page 106) Moreover, Will and Marcus often talk to each other, so there is a lot direct speech. An example is also on page 107: "Who were they, then? (1.29), asks Will, after he talked to the Strangers in front of his house. I think it's clear, that the protagonists talk to each other. In addition, there is a hyperbole we found in the extract. The hyperbole is provocative,...

because Will grossly exaggerates when he says: "he was a hundred years old." (1.15f., page 109) It also is meant to have a humorous effect, because Marcus is only twelve and Will acts as if rcus knows everything. The last means, we found in this extract is the enumeration. Marcus lists what different types of people there are at school, when he says: "There were clever ones and thick ones and trendy ones and weird ones." (I 21ff, page 109) This mean give a detailed account of Marcus´ school life and also provoke to form one's opinion, because not everyone has this opinion, because even Will responds: "they can't be different sorts of kids there, Kids are kids." (1.22, page 109) Additionally, we analysed the language of the extract, we read out loud. At first, there is a lot colloquial language, for example the phrase “I dunno” (l. 18, page 109), which means "I don't know.", another phrase is "I s´pose so.” (I.10, page 109). These phrases are supposed to make the book not so formal. Besides that, it is the writing style of Hornby, who likes to write about everyday things. Moreover, we found a lot of slang, which also is supposed to make the book not so formal and maybe shows, that Will isn't always the formal man, he supposed to be. When he talks to the children, who attacked Marcus, he says things like "Who the fuck are you?" (1.5, page 107) and “Fuck off.” (1.7, page 107) ABOUT A ΒΟΥ STRUCTURE information about Nick Hornby • summary • introduction Will Marcus ● of the main characters analysis good and bad points Ⓒ The international million-copy bestseller NICK HORNBY ABOUT A BOY Delightful, observant, funny and good-hearted' Mail on Sunday INFORMATION ABOUT NICK HORNBY • born on the 17th April 1957 in Redhill British writer and screenwriter • most famous works: "About a boy", "Fever Pitch", "High Fidelity" visited Jesus College and University of Cambridge SUMMARY • about a deep friedship between a young boy and a man ● • Will pretending to be father, meets Marcus. ● They become more and more friends. Will helps Marcus. INTRODUCTION OF WILL • 36 years old • cool • independent child-free MARCUS • 12 years old ● different to other children • shy grown up too early INFORMATION ABOUT THE AUTHOR Nick Hornby was born on the 17 April 1957 in Redhill, Great Britain. He grew up in Maidenhead. He is a British writer and screenwriter (Drehbuchautor). His most famous works are about a boy, Fever Pitch and High Fidelity. Hornby studied English at Jesus College, University of Cambridge. After that he first worked as an English teacher. In 1992 Hornby devoted his full-time writing. The author made his breakthrough in 1995 with High Fidelity. Through his autistic son Danny, he is a founding member of TreeHouse, an UK- based organization working to improve the schooling of autistic children. Hornby lives in London and is married in second marriage to film producer Amanda Posey. He has 3 children. Hornby is very interested in football and is an avowed (bekennender) Arsenal fan. His brother-in-law is the British writer Robert Harris. The author Gill Hornby is his sister. Hornby is one of the most important current representatives of pop culture and - literature. He has already been nominated for an Oscar twice: in 2010 for the script for the film "An Education" and in 2016 for the screenplay (Drehbuch) for the film "Brooklyn". Modern media as such as television or sound carries (pop music) play a major role in Hornby's books. Nick Hornby takes the view that people also want to read about everyday things, and that a book lacks something, it is dishonest if the description of the everyday is taken away from it. We think, Hornby's success seems to prove him right. https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nick Hornby https://www.lovelybooks.de/autor/Nick-Hornby/ http://www.die-biografien.de/biografien/281.php Summary/Plot Ein Film über die tiefe Freundschaft zwischen einem kleinen Jungen und einem Mann, der mit seinem Leben nichts anzufangen weiß. Will Freeman ist der geborene Junggeselle und ein waschechter Faulpelz; er braucht nicht zu arbeiten, da er von dem Nachlass seines Vaters lebt und sieht die meiste Zeit fern. Auf die Frage, ob er Patenonkel des Kindes seiner Freunde Christine und John werden möchte, antwortet Will, er sei zu unzuverlässig für solch eine Aufgabe. Daraufhin versucht er die Gesellschaft von Christine und John zu meiden und kommt auf die Idee, zu einer Selbsthilfegruppe für Single-Mütter zu gehen, um dort Frauen aufzureißen. Für seinen Plan gibt er vor, Vater eines 2 Jahre alten Sohnes (Ned) zu sein und er ist erfolgreich und trifft Suzie, die auf Marcus, den 12-jährigen Sohn ihrer Freundin aufpasst. Will und Suzie verstehen sich gut, doch als sie Marcus nach Hause bringen, finden sie dessen Mutter Fiona im Wohnzimmer liegend auf. Sie hat mit einer Überdosis an Pillen versucht, sich das Leben zu nehmen. Marcus möchte daraufhin nicht alleine mit seiner Mutter wohnen und sucht Will zu Hause auf, wobei er entdeckt, dass dieser in Wirklichkeit gar keinen kleinen Sohn hat. Marcus erpresst Will damit und möchte von nun an immer nach der Schule Zeit mit Will verbringen, anstatt direkt nach Hause zu seiner Mutter zu gehen. Zunächst wehrt sich Will, doch eines Tages bekommt er mit, wie Marcus von Schulkameraden gehänselt wird. Will fasst den Entschluss, dem Jungen zu helfen, kauft ihm neue Schuhe, hilft ihm selbstbewusster zu werden und die beiden freunden sich immer mehr an. Eines Tages erzählt Marcus, dass er gerne auf dem Schulkonzert singen würde, um seine Mutter, die immer noch unter Depressionen leidet, aufzuheitern. Will vermutet, dass dieses Vorhaben Marcus wieder zum Mobbingopfer seiner Schulkameraden macht und sucht deswegen Fiona auf, um sich von ihr bestätigen zu lassen, dass sie ,,in nächster Zeit" nicht vorhat, Selbstmord zu begehen. Die beiden eilen zu der Schulaufführung, wo Will kurzentschlossen auf die Bühne springt und schafft, dass Marcus sich nicht komplett blamiert, sondern Will selbst die Buhrufe des Publikums erntet. https://freie-referate.de/englisch/zusammenfassung-der-tag-der-toten-ente Referring to our task we want to summarize the novel given by the text at hand. The novel "About A Boy" written by Nick Hornby was taken from the school library and published 1998. In general, the novel is about the deep friendship between a young boy and a man who knows nothing about his life. The story plays in 1994. Will Freeman is a notoriously single. He doesn't have to work because he lives off his father's estate (Nachlass) and watches Tv most of the time. Asked if he wants to become the godfather (Patenonkel) of the children of his friends Christine and John, Will answers that he is too unreliable (unzuverlässig) for such a task. As a result, he tries to avoid the company of Christine and John and comes up with the idea of going to a support group for single mothers (SPAT) in order to pick up women. For his plan he pretends (vorgeben) to be the father of a 2-year-old son, named Ned and he succeeds and meets a woman, who takes care of Marcus, her friend's 12- year-old son. Marcus is acting rather grown up. Will and Suzie get along well, but when they bring Marcus home, they find his mother Fiona lying in the living room. She tried to kill herself with an overdose of pills. Marcus doesn't want to live alone with his mother and visits Will at home, discovering that Will doesn't really have a son at all. Marcus blackmails (erpressen) Will with it and wants to spend time with Will after school instead of going straight home to his mother. At first Will fends off (sich wehren), but one day he hears Marcus being bullied by schoolmates. Will makes the decision to help the boy, buys him shoes, helps him to become more confident and the two become more and more friends. At the same time, Marcus and a girl become more and more friends. Moreover, Will meets another woman and begins to fall in love with her. One day, Marcus father has an accident and Marcus shall go to him. He asks the girl and she go with him. By stupid coincidences the two end up at the police station, where their parents have to pick them up. The end we don't reveal, who wants to know should read the book itself.
