Bruno’s Development

17 Jan

How does Boyne make the story SOUND like it is from a child?

Boyne uses the words “Fury” (Führer) and “Out-With” (Auschwitz) rather the actual names of things in the book. WHY does he do this? WHAT effect does it have?

How else does Boyne write to show that Bruno is just a child? Think about:

  • Rules
  • Phrases “Pushed about from pillar to post” (48)
  • The conversation between Gretel and Bruno in Ch. 4
