Sift Notes Symbol In The Giver, Gabe symbolizes love and perseverance in a dystopian world. This is shown in the story when Jonas and Gabe were traveling to Elsewhere: “If he had stayed, he would have starved in other ways...for Gabriel there would have been no life at all” (218). Jonas begins to love Gabe, because of the memory The Giver gave him, which showed him a small cabin with family and happiness. So instead of letting Gabe get released, he took Gabe with him to elsewhere. This means Jonas felt emotions that nobody else had in his community.
In a small community a young teen, Jonas, realizes over time after he gets the job ‘The Giver’ that the society is not what everyone thinks it is. For example, when there are twin born the the community the one that is average weight or the healthiest. And the other baby gets killed by the government. Or if one of the elderly gets to old or is not as healthy as then should be, ten they kill them also. So once Jonas realizes all of this he is very caring and helps the Giver and baby Gabe.
The Giver Gandhi once said, “You must be the change you wish to see in the world”. To bring about a change in us we need an opportunity to do so. In the Giver’s community people cannot feel or express their emotions, they cannot make their own choices nor decide their career path. They have accepted “sameness” as a way of life to eradicate everything emotional from their lives. In this community there is no color, memory and climate this is all in effort to preserve structure, order, and equality.
During The Giver Jonas is selected to be the Receiver of Memory. During his training Jonas asks to see a video of the release. The giver shows Jonas and Jonas realizes what it means. “His head fell to the side, his eyes half open.” “Then he lay still.”
There are many memories of the past that humans have yet to uncover, but in the Giver even the eldest citizen cannot remember a time before them. There is value in the collective knowledge of past generations, and in the way that it is passed on to others. Having memory is a source of wisdom, but can also cause pain. When Jonas is receiving memories of the past, he feels pain, relaxation, rejoice, and sadness.
When Jonas became the new Receiver, he was given rules that were very different and abrupt compared to everyone else who received their assignment. Jonas has to go straight to see the Giver after school and go straight home after without socializing like everyone else. He cannot talk about what he is doing as the Receiver and what he does to train unlike everyone else. Jonas is also allowed to break the rules and lie and ask questions even if they’re rude and he is promised an answer. Jonas is not allowed to talk about his dreams or take any medications other than ones for illness or injury.
The Giver jumped right into the transmitting of memories. He started off with the memory of snow. On top of a hill there was soft snow and a sled. Jonas got on the sled and starting sliding down the steep hill. Jonas had never felt anything more exciting before.
The book doesn’t specify whether one , both died, or it was just a test by the giver to see if Jonas could handle receiving all the memories. So the theme is directly related with this because in the book it describes certain events that portray pain and pleasure. The theme comes into play . In The Giver Jonas suffered a horrible hallucinations or he simply failed a test...
It was a memory of his own”( Lowry 178). The question that originates is, is Jonas connected to this place? What does it mean when it states, “It was memory of his own”(Lowry 178). This quote AUGMENTS my curiosity on the future of Jonas. Further, what will happen to the community when the Giver is released and Jonas is “elsewhere”?
As the Receiver of Memory, he is responsible for experiencing and passing on the remembrances forbidden to society. The Giver mentors him for the job. In this community, color, choice, feelings, and other manifestations of creativity are taken away. Jonas realizes, after The Giver displays him a year’s worth of memories, that the community’s current situation without love is unethical, and he plots to give the community back its memories. Despite the community in The Giver’s strict belief in precise language, they use the words Release, Elsewhere, and Sameness as euphemisms for negative ideas that are avoided in the community.
Although Jonas 's Society has no memories, The Giver teaches Jonas that, without memories, knowledge is useless. As one can see, Jonas learned that “‘... without memories it’s all meaningless. ’” (Lowry 105) , this shows without memories there is no meaning to knowledge or history. In the novel they got rid of memories to hide the pain and then gave the burden to one person, the Receiver. For example, The Giver tells Jonas, “‘ They gave me that burden.
The ending of Lowry 's novel, The Giver, seems rather ambiguous. Before reading the author 's Newbery Medal acceptance speech, I thought of two possible interpretations. The first and also the one that I like the least was that Jonas and Gabriel had finally come to Elsewhere, but they died before they could be helped. After all that they had been through, they finally had their goal within reach. But they froze to death dreaming of warmth and love that they had never been able to obtain, still hoping beyond hope that they might reach the end.
