Poor people  lived  in  cold,  dark homes, and never saw a doctor when they were  ill And if you were poor and very, very ugly . . . This is the story of a poor, ugly man. Nobody loved him,  everyone laughed at him. They put him in a  cage like  an animal at the zoo. Then one day a doctor saw him  and thought, 'This poor man is interesting. I want to study him.' Slowly, the Elephant Man  became famous, and everyone wanted to  meet  him. Even the Queen visited him But what was the Elephant Man really like? Did he think and feel like other people? Was he a sad, angry man?  Could  he ever smile and laugh, and forget his ugly face  and his strange, ugly body?  F,*<cna  Awrfutsicin —ã— Forma  de AOQU«H:HM { „  f ^F ^ ^^ c Nc-  s rcten  . j- - I  Wo Sistsrna  _. 4 too  De  inventano i  Precio r:r————— OXFORD BOOKWORMS  LIBR RY ru tories The lephant Man Stage   (400 headwords) Series Editor: Jennifer Bassett Founder Editor:  Tricia  Hedge Activities Editors: Jennifer Bassett and  Alison  Baxter  TIM  VIC RY The lephant Man OXFORD UNIVERSITY  PR SS
