Lamb to the Slaughter is a short, sharp, chilling story from Roald Dahl, the master of the shocking tale. In Lamb to the Slaughter, Roald Dahl, one of the world's favourite authors, tells a twisted story about the darker side of human nature. Here, a wife serves up a dish that utterly baffles the police . . . Lamb to the Slaughter is taken from the short story collection Someone Like You, which includes seventeen other devious and shocking stories, featuring the two men who make an unusual and chilling wager over the provenance of a bottle of wine; a curious machine that reveals the horrifying truth about plants; the man waiting to be bitten by the venomous snake asleep on his stomach; and others. 'The absolute master of the twist in the tale.' (Observer ) This story is also available as a Penguin digital audio download read by Juliet Stevenson. Roald Dahl, the brilliant and worldwide acclaimed author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, Matilda, and many more classics for children, also wrote scores of short stories for adults. These delightfully disturbing tales have often been filmed and were most recently the inspiration for the West End play, Roald Dahl's Twisted Tales by Jeremy Dyson. Roald Dahl's stories continue to make readers shiver today.

Essay from the year 2005 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2.0, University of Potsdam, 0 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Dahl touches the taboo theme of commiting a murder here which is not typical for a short story. It occurred to me that the story better fits into the genre of crime fiction. In the following I will discuss whether this is true or not, whether Roald Dahl’s Lamb to the slaughter carries the main features of that genre or not.

Unterrichtsentwurf aus dem Jahr 2013 im Fachbereich Englisch - Pädagogik, Didaktik, Sprachwissenschaft, Note: 2,0, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (Institut für Anglistik und Amerikanistik), Veranstaltung: Children’s and Young Adults’ Literature (Sekundarstufe I), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die vorliegende Lehreinheit ist für einen Grundkurs Englisch, Jahrgang 10. Klasse an einer Gesamtschule konzipiert. Der Kurs besteht aus 28 Schülern und findet dreimal die Woche für jeweils 45 Minuten statt. Die Lesekompetenz ist bei den Schülern und Schülerinnen (SuS) insgesamt gut entwickelt, aber die Schreibkompetenz lässt noch zu wünschen übrig. Die SuS sind diszipliniert und aufnahmebereit, sie sind es jedoch nicht gewohnt, kreativ mit Literatur umzugehen und eigene Texte zu verfassen. Der bisherige Weg zur Erarbeitung von Literatur bestand bei der vorherigen Lehrkraft aus einer eigenständigen Lektüre und anschließenden Gesprächen im Plenum. Dabei wurde bis auf wenige Ausnahmen frontal unterrichtet.

The Complete Short Stories of Roald Dahl in the first of two unsettling and sinister volumes. 'They are brutal, these stories, and yet you finish reading each one with a smile, or maybe even a hollow laugh, certainly a shiver of gratification, because the conclusion always seems so right' Charlie Higson, from his introduction. Roald Dahl is one of the most popular writers of the modern age, effortlessly writing for children and adults alike. In this, the first of two volumes chronologically collecting all his published adult short stories, we see how Dahl began by using his experiences in the war to write fiction but quickly turned to his powerful and dark imagination to pen some of the most unsettling and disquieting tales ever written. In 27 stories, written between 1944 and 1953, we encounter such classic tales as 'Man from the South', featuring a wager with appalling consequences; 'Lamb to the Slaughter', in which a wife murders her husband yet has a novel idea for throwing the police off the scent; and in 'The Sound Machine', the horrific truth about plants is revealed. Enter the sinister, twisted world of Roald Dahl: whether you're young or old, you'll never want to leave. 'Roald Dahl is one of the few writers I know whose work can accurately be described as addictive' Irish Times 'The great magician' Spectator Look out for Volume Two, introduced by Anthony Horowitz Roald Dahl, the brilliant and worldwide acclaimed author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, Matilda, and many more classics for children, also wrote scores of short stories for adults. These delightfully disturbing tales have often been filmed and were most recently the inspiration for the West End play, Roald Dahl's Twisted Tales by Jeremy Dyson.

This study explores how five major directors—Pedro Almodóvar, Alejandro Amenábar, Alex de la Iglesia, Guillermo del Toro, and Juan José Campanella—modeled their early careers on Hitchcock and his film aesthetics. In shadowing Hitchcock, their works embraced the global aspirations his movies epitomize. Each section of the book begins with an extensive study, based on newspaper accounts, of the original reception of Hitchcock’s movies in either Spain or Latin America and how local preferences for genre, glamour, moral issues, and humor affected their success. The text brings a new approach to world film history, showcasing both the commercial and artistic importance of Hitchcock in Spain and Latin America.
