The Giver Final Copy

  1. 1. The Giver.~by: loislowry<br />By: Amanda *Violet* Ravotti<br />Comm 1010<br />
  2. 2. A seemingly ideal world<br />“Told with deceptive simplicity, this is the provocative story of a boy who experiences something incredible and undertakes something impossible. In the telling it questions every value we have taken for granted and reexamines our most deeply held beliefs.”<br />a world without conflict, poverty, unemployment, divorce, injustice, or inequality. It is a time in which family values are paramount, teenage rebellion is unheard of, and even good manners are a way of life.<br />
  3. 3. Facts and plot<br />Science fiction novel set in a future society.<br />Utopian Society (ideal society/place of perfection) though after observations it can be depicted as dystopian (wrought with disorder and imperfection). <br />Jonas, 11 yrs old. At 12 yrs old, he is chosen to be the new Receiver at the Ceremony of Twelve. <br />Job Description of Receiver: Filled with both joy, and painful suffering. Basically takes in memories that are important and affect the whole community. <br />These memories change his perspective about himself and his community forever.<br />
  4. 4. While throwing an apple with his best friend, Asher he sees it momentarily turn red in mid-air ands stumbles upon his gift.<br /> In this society, people are assigned jobs according to a dedicated evaluation of their skill and matched up with possible mates based on personality matches.<br />At the Ceremony of Twelve, each 12 year old is assigned a job he or she will do for the rest of their life. The Council of Elders is in charge of this. <br />
  5. 5. Jona’s community seems perfect with scarce pain or crime with polite and kind people. <br /> There is no choice and real emotions don’t exist. <br />Committee of elders match spouses and assigns them children. Everyone looks similar and dresses similar. Rather strict and un-original world. <br />
  6. 6. Community founded on idea of Sameness. <br />The people of Jona’s community don’t understand genuine emotion or pain because in their lifestyle they never experience it. <br />Adults are not allowed to choose their own spouses. <br />As Jonas learns from the Giver, he realizes that one can only experience joy and love if one understands pain and loneliness. He comes to believe that it is cruel to have to people of his community blind to emotion. <br />
  7. 7. Upon discovery that is father’s job is that he gets rid of newchildren by “releasing” them, in other words killing them; he strongly desires to change this and becomes overcome with emotion. <br />Joans takes in all the memories that the Giver bestows upon him and he is awakened to the dark reality of the memories of his community. <br />Jonas runs away from the community on a bike with Gabe, the newchild whose life he helped spare. His days are filled with fleeing from search plans and finding food. <br />When he leaves his community, he is able to give back the feeling because when he leaves he sends the feelings, experiences, and memories he took in back to the community. <br />
  8. 8. Why?<br />Sometime in the past, Jona’s community decided to give up their memories to eliminate the pain and regret that came with them. As a course of that effect, they lost their crucial emotions. <br />Through banishing emotion, it was an effort to create a peaceful, harmonious society lacking war, disorder, conflict, or hate.<br />Jonas discovers that without memories, then a person isn’t able to learn from mistakes, change, understand emotions, cultivate and grow mentally, be aware of love, happiness, or sadness, or fully celebrate accomplishments. <br />
  9. 9. When Jonas takes in the memories from The Giver, it is an actual experience in which he literally feels all the memories thrown upon them. Some of which include sledding, sunburn, snow, and quite a few painful memories as the days pass by. As the Keeper of Memories, it is his duty to experience them. <br />The first memory the Giver gives Jonas is of sledding. <br />
