The Elders attempt at making a defectless world through alikeness and uniformity made the community dystopian instead of utopian as it was intended to be. If the community in The Giver was truly utopian, it would allow people to be contradistinctive and have their own unique and individual traits and looks.

Individuality and diversity are indispensable to people because they are what conceive emotions and allow us to enjoy our exclusive abilities and talents.

In the third chapter of The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck, the author uses diction, symbolism, and imagery to foreshadow the Joad’s family journey to California through the connection with the turtle’s minutest movement. The turtle’s every movement portrays several circumstances that the Joad’s family have to overcome, in order to reach their goal to find reasonable jobs.

Also we can infer that the Joad’s family is moving really slowly and cautiously, because turtles are meant to be slow on land. So the author uses numerous rhetorical devices to correspond with the endurance of the turtle and the Joad’s family.
