Title: The Giver


1
The Giver
  • Chapters 1 - 5

2
Life in the Community
  • Government chooses peoples spouses, jobs, and
    children
  • Very little competition
  • Life here symbolizes a COMMUNIST society
  • Everyone works together for the common good
    receives equal share of the benefits

3
People in the Community
  • Viewed as tools rather than human beings
  • Parts to a machine
  • Women are valued for the usefulness of their
    bodies (birthmothers)
  • Old are treated like children and cared for by
    people they had no previous relation with
  • No emotional connection BUT are treated with
    respect and kindness

4
Frightened
  • Foreshadowing?
  • Jonas accepts his community, but WE should have
    some questions based off his fear
  • The rules LIMIT personal freedom

5
Jonas Eyes
  • His unusual eyes are symbolic of the unusual way
    in which he sees the world
  • A physical representation of his different
    vision
  • Able to see past what other people in his
    community see
  • Sees deeper The apple

6
The Stirrings
  • Example of societys rejection of strong feelings
  • Jonas begins to enter puberty and is given a pill
    to stop the feelings that come with it
  • By eliminating these urges, jealousy,
    frustration, and grief do not exist that would
    distract citizens from doing their work
