Through the rest of the chapters Ender goes through a lot of things like succeeding in battle school which is in space by the way, he kept getting switched to different schools and he gets his own army called Dragon Army, and they win every battle. When Colonel Graff takes Ender to command school, where the readers finds out Ender killed Bonzo and Stilson, Ender later finds out though, Ender also fund out that the game was real war and that he killed the buggers off and he feels bad about it. Ender finally finds out he killed Bonzo and Stilson when he watches Colonel Graff’s trial (Colonel Graff was found not guilty). So, in the end Valentine, Enders sister convinced Ender to move away to another new colony with her, the buggers found a way to talk to Ender telepathically saying how they’re sorry they killed people, they forgive humans for wiping them out and the history of the Bugger species. They leave Ender a queen pupa which means he can restart the species.
Therefore tricking the commander and the squadron leaders was the only choice mankind has against forces that may destroy humanity. Another reason why the command school authorities kept the truth away from Ender especially is because Ender’s personality is a combination between Valentine’s and Peter’s. Basically a mix between good and evil. If his compassionate side gave in, then the buggers might take over the world. Although his kindness might cost the destruction of his world, his killer instinct might take rash decisions.
In Orson Scott Card’s book Ender’s Game, Ender is continually set up against impossible odds by the International Fleet, which is part of a plan to train Ender to fight in the Third Invasion and end the bugger wars forever. Ender’s trials are portrayed more convincingly in the book, as the book shows him struggling with the expectations placed upon him more so than in the movie. An important theme in Ender’s Game is that Ender is continually kept in the dark about the events happening around him. This theme is prevalent throughout the book, and sets the stage for the book’s climax, the Third Invasion.
In Ender’s Game, Colonel Graff states, “With Ender, we have to strike a delicate balance. Isolate him enough that he remains creative-otherwise he’ll adopt the system here and we’ll lose him. At the same time, we need to make sure he keeps a strong ability to lead. ”Graff is talking about his plans for Ender and how to make the perfect commander. This was the major story line throughout the novel.
Scott Macarthy Mr. Werley English III 22 September 2014 The Destruction of Ender A utopia is supposed to be a perfect world, yet there are rarely any true utopias. Ender’s Game begins with a utopic society, where the government pits Earth against the nasty and evil buggers. Throughout Ender 's Game, written by Orson Scott Card, the reader follows the main protagonist, Ender, from his journey as a young boy on Earth to the hopes of being the next great commander in the fight against the buggers.
In the novel Ender’s Game, by Orson Scott Card, he explores a world in which lies and manipulation are a positive idea. The main character, Ender Wiggin, is a six-year-old boy who is recruited into a battle school known as the International Fleet. This battle school was presented to the children as a place where they can train to protect Earth from an alien life form known as buggers. The students soon learn the real reason they are there. Ender in particular begins to figure out that the adults are the enemies as they have continued to lie in order to achieve cooperation.
Though Valentine’s actual motive for attempting to make contact with his ticklish knee was to console him, Ender considered it an act of peril, judging Valentine’s intention as harm to him. As an unintended consequence, Valentine’s perception of Ender has significantly modified for the worse. “A very small, fragile boy who needed her protection. Not this cold-eyed, dark-skinned manling who kills wasps with his fingers.” Ender’s colossal character change essentially reveals what Card inevitably understood he would become: a clone of Peter’s daunting characteristics.
They could have taught Ender the same information, but still made him learn how to read, write, talk, and play sports. My first point is when Ender was a commander in battle school they put more pressure on him than any other student. For intense, he had to fight battles every day and he had a lot less time to prepare for the battles. Every battle he had a lot of odds stacked against him.
Ender knows what has to be done in order to prevent further, possibly fatal, attacks and demonstrates that he is willing to attack on the helpless to do so. (add more?) good Chapter 2. “It was not a question of winning… here in their flat, the game would start mean, and the bugger couldn’t just go empty and quit the way buggers did in the real wars. The bugger
This was one of the reasons why he was the perfect choice to be the commander. He also had a tremendous amount of guilt after (unknowingly) killing all the buggers and the pilots he and the squad leaders had controlled. This guilt would only be resolved when Ender finds a purpose as Speaker for the Dead and finding a safe place for the egg to
Report #2 The first quote on page 19 is possibly one of the most important quotes in the whole novel. ”Knocking him down was the first fight. I wanted to win all the next one’s too. So they’d leave me alone”(Ender 19), Ender says this when confronted by his parts and Colonel Graff about why he beat the Stilson boy so bad he is now in the hospital.
When Ender was talking to himself he said,”the power to cause pain is the only power that matters, the power to kill and destroy, because if you can’t kill then you’re always subject to those who can, and no one will ever save you,”(Card pg.212). This shows that inaction can make people prone to lose against people who have power can have power over them because inaction leaves them open and defenseless to those they could restrain. This also shows that inaction leads to loss because Ender is referring to the fight against Stilson, Bonzo, and Bernard because if he had waited for the teachers to respond to call for help they would’ve overpowered him and he would’ve lost. After ender defeated the buggers Mazer Rackham told Ender, “you made the hard choice, boy. All or nothing.
However, the majority of the battles he fights are constructed and orchestrated and controlled by the Adults. Ender lives in a military archetype which assumes humans are compliant, flexible, controllable pawns, tool to be used for the benefit of others. Ender’s insecurities,doubts and fears, as to why he is so isolated, how he is becoming more like petter, how he is an ostracized genius, all that sets him apart– make him diligent, sympathetic, preservant, resilient, flexible, and above all pliable, impressionable, malleable, qualities far more common in children. Supporting quote: “‘So what do we do now?’ asked Alai.
Rachel keomanivong P4 Ender’s Game Theme I believe the main theme of Ender’s game is compassion. Ender is a nine and half year old leader at his battle school, he is known as the most celebrated soldier and became a leader or commander. As Ender progresses in leading his own army or group of soldiers, he is sure to do it in a mannered way and effectively. As of chapter 10 and 11, Ender has found ways to teach his callings how important battles are to him and how they can be effective.
