Example text

As with living people, the characters’ eyes are emotionally foregrounded in the naturalistic style, and in comparison with the generic style, the whole topography of the face and skin is depicted and contributes to our inferences about the character’s feelings. The depiction of affect, of course, is not carried only by the faces of the characters, although these have been used to define the three ‘styles’ identified. Depicted gestures and bodily stance are also key in the representation of affect as can readily be seen in Sendak’s (1963) Where the Wild Things Are, where all three combine to suggest the gamut of emotions experienced by the protagonist, Max.

This latter book makes use of hard edges and very strong contrasts of light and shade to create its own kind of eerie unreality. The effect (together with symbols, patterns of gaze within the image and filmic intertextuality) is to give apparently 8. More accurately to be considered a continuum between clearly differentiated poles. 17 pathos options. ordinary experience an edge of otherworldly science fiction (Anstey and Bull, 2000: 161–2). The pictorial style is an alienating one in which we feel the otherness of the characters without the sympathy conjured by others who are like us.

For example, at the end of Browne’s (2004) Into the Forest, the boy who had been anxious about his absent father returns home with him to be greeted by his mother. We see the smiling mother, arms outspread in welcome and wearing a bright red sweater, but with no circumstantial details depicted. In general, the removal of the setting draws our attention to the emotion and/or behaviour of the character, thereby evoking affect (and sometimes judgement) in us. Because the mother in this case is depicted in a vibrant red garment her enthusiasm and warmth are conveyed and equivalent feelings are invoked in the reader.
