About Roald Dahl

Roald Dahl (13 September 1916 – 23 November 1990) was a British novelist, brief story author and screenwriter, born in Wales of Norwegian parents, who rose to prominence in the 1940s with functions for both kids and adults, and became among the world's bestselling authors. His top books include The Twits, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, Matilda, The Witches and The BFG.

Dahl's children's functions are told within the point of view of the child. They usually include adult villainesses who detest and mistreat youngsters, and feature at least 1 "good" adult to counteract the villain(s). These stock characters are potentially a reference to the misuse that Dahl reported that he experienced in the boarding universities he attended. They generally contain a great deal of black humour and grotesque situations, including gruesome violence. The Witches, George's Marvelous Medicine and Matilda are examples of the formula. The BFG follows it in a more analogous technique with all the wise giant (the BFG or "Big Friendly Giant") representing the "advantageous adult" archetype and the different leaders being the "bad adults". This formula is equally somewhat obvious in Dahl's movie script for Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Class-conscious themes – ranging within the thinly veiled to the blatant – moreover surface in functions like Fantastic Mr. Fox and Danny, the Champion of the World. Dahl furthermore qualities in his books characters that are rather fat, commonly kids. Augustus Gloop, Bruce Bogtrotter, and Bruno Jenkins are a limited of these characters, although a massive girl called Aunt Sponge is showcased in James and The Giant Peach. All of these characters (with all the possible exception of Bruce Bogtrotter) are either villains or unpleasant gluttons. These are generally commonly punished for this: Augustus Gloop drinks from Willy Wonka's chocolate river, disregarding the adults who tell him to not, and falls in, getting sucked up a pipe and almost being turned into fudge. Bruce Bogtrotter steals cake within the wicked headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, and is forced to consume a gigantic chocolate cake in front of the school. Bruno Jenkins is turned into a mouse by witches and, it is actually speculated, perhaps disowned or killed by his parents as a result of this. Aunt Sponge is flattened by a giant peach. Dahl's mom utilized to tell him and his sisters stories about trolls and additional mythical Norwegian creatures and a few of his children's books contain references or ingredients inspired by these stories, including the leaders in The BFG. Many of his children's books are illustrated by Quentin Blake.

Roald Dahl died in November 1990 at the age of 74 of the uncommon blood condition, myelodysplastic anaemia (often called "pre-leukemia"), at his house, Gipsy Home in Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire, and was buried in the cemetery at the parish church of Saints Peter and Paul. According to his granddaughter, the family gave him a "kind of Viking funeral". He was buried with his snooker cues, some good burgundy, chocolates, HB pencils along with a energy saw. In his honour, the Roald Dahl Children's Gallery was opened at Buckinghamshire County Museum in nearby Aylesbury. In 2002, 1 of Cardiff's contemporary landmarks, the historical Oval Basin plaza, was re-christened "Roald Dahl Plass". "Plass" signifies plaza in Norwegian, a nod to the acclaimed late writer's Norwegian origins. There have furthermore been calls within the public for a permanent statue of him to be erected in the city. Dahl's charitable commitments in the fields of neurology, haematology and literacy have been continued by his widow since his death, through the Roald Dahl Foundation. In June 2005, the Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre opened in Great Missenden to enjoy the function of Roald Dahl and advance his function in literacy. In 2008, the U.K. charity Booktrust and Children's Laureate Michael Rosen inaugurated The Roald Dahl Funny Prize, an yearly honor to authors of humorous children's fiction.

Dahl wedded American actress Patricia Neal on 2 July 1953 at Trinity Church in New York City. Their wedding lasted for 30 years plus they had five children: Olivia (who died of measles encephalitis, aged seven), Tessa, Theo, Ophelia, and Lucy. He dedicated The BFG to Olivia. When he was 4 months aged, Theo Dahl was severely injured when his baby carriage was hit by a taxi in New York City. For a time, he suffered from hydrocephalus, and as a outcome, his dad became included in the development of what became well-known as the "Wade-Dahl-Till" (or WDT) valve, a device to ease the condition. In 1965, Neal suffered 3 burst cerebral aneurysms while expecting with their fifth child, Lucy; Dahl took control of her rehabilitation and she eventually relearned to talk and walk. They were divorced in 1983 following a turbulent wedding, and he subsequently married Felicity ("Liccy") d'Abreu Crosland (born 12 December 1938), who was 22 years his junior. Ophelia Dahl is director and co-founder (with doctor Paul Farmer) of Partners in Health, a non-profit company focused on providing healthcare to a few of the many impoverished communities in the planet. Lucy Dahl is a screenwriter in Los Angeles. Tessa's daughter Sophie Dahl (who was the inspiration for Sophie, the primary character in her grandfather's book The BFG) is a model and writer who remembers Roald Dahl as "a truly difficult guy – fairly strong, surprisingly dominant ... not unlike the dad of the Mitford sisters kind of roaring round the home with these truly loud opinions, banning certain kinds – foppish guys, you recognize – from coming round."
