“Someone who can’t sacrifice anything, can’t change anything.” (Whisper.sh). Jonas sacrificed everything to change his community, other communities, and the world. Lois Lowry creates a flawed and controlled setting in chapters 1 and 2 of The Giver using specific words and phrases. The first setting Lowry creates through careful wording is flawed. A quote that proves this is, “but the commission would never bother The Receiver with a question about bicycles; they would simply fret and argue about it themselves for years until citizens forgot that it had ever gone to them for study,” (pg.18). This creates a flawed setting because there is no way to make laws without help from The Receiver. The problem with this is, The Receiver is seen as too important to troubled about many laws and nothing ever gets changed. If something happens where The Receiver can’t come nothing will change. If they argue for years about something as simple as bicycles why are they in charge? They don’t seem fit to make or change laws if they have proven that they can’t. Another quote that proves this is, “but father had already gone to the self and taken down the stuffed elephant which was kept there. Many of the comfort objects, like Lily’s were soft, stuffed, imaginary …show more content…
Word choice can have a big impact on a reader due to the weight different words have. If in The Giver they used fired instead of the word released it would have less of an impact. It would also have less of an impact on the characters in the book since fired doesn’t really instill fear in people. The setting of The Giver seems to be a flawed system with a controlling government, they live in a dystopia. If the council wanted to they could massacre, torture, or use the community as their lab rats. So the main setting in the giver (putting flawed and controlled together) is a dystopian

That's what I feel like. (chapter 1) In Chapter 18 The Giver talks about the past receiver that failed ten years ago, RoseMary. The Giver explains his feelings of love for RoseMary. This emotion made the Giver's job very difficult to cause her any sort of pain.
The Giver: Chapters 1-5 A. Questions 1.The arrival of a jet might be a terrifying experience for the entire community because they do not see jets very often only when a cargo plane is dropping off supplies. It also might make it more terrifying for the community because nothing unordinary ever happens so they are taking the jet very seriously and making sure everyone goes indoors. 2. I think that when someone is released from the community they are sent out of the community to live somewhere else.
Lea Vilna-Santos Mrs. English, 7th September 1st, 2015 The Giver, by: Lois Lowry Log Entry 5: Chapters 9-10: Question 7: In chapters 9-10, Jonas realizes from reading the last rule in his list that allows him to lie, that what if what people say isn’t the truth, despite what everyone in his community learns about the importance of telling the truth. He was even chastised when he exaggerated as a Four. He said that he was starving, but he was only hungry. His teachers made sure he understood that even though it was an unintentional lie, it was still a lie because as long as he lives in their community he will never be starving so they didn’t want him to ever say anything like that again.
The community in the novel The Giver is a dystopia. I think that this community is an example of a dystopia for three reasons. The three reasons are first nobody gets to chose their own job, second if someone does something wrong three times then they get released, and the third reason is that the community is in a state called sameness. My first reason was that they do not get to chose their own jobs.
This connects to Lowry’s warning because in Jonas’ society there is no chance to learn through the big mistakes that are made. In the society in The Giver, emotions were not felt, clothing was not one’s own choice, and forcing people out of the society was acceptable. All people should learn that giving up pain and difficult decisions could mean giving up freedom. Diversity in a community is a good thing and should be celebrated. Lois Lowry was trying to send the message to her readers that being their unique selves leads to true
(MIP) In the book The Giver, my meme is about how people are being released and replaced and why it's wrong.(SIP A) They do not realize this in their society this is wrong they have believed for centuries this is normal.(STEWE 1) In their thoughts it's just another rule to keep the society in check.
The book I read was The Giver it is about a boy named Jonas and where he lives there is no conflict, color, hate, love, they got rid of those things to make peace. Jonas and everyone that is the age of twelve are assigned jobs by the chief elder. At the ceremony everybody in Jonas class was assigned their jobs, and Jonas was skipped everyone thought she forgot Jonas, but she didn't Jonas was assigned Receiver of Memory the most important job in their community. This story is told in third person point of view. The story The Giver takes place in I do not know.
The most important assignment in the community. He must receive memories from the current receiver. The chief elder made the decision to make only one person bear the burden of the memories. Everyone thinks the community is perfect, a utopia, but Jonas sees all the flaws .Jonas changes throughout The Giver and as a result, tries to change the community.
If you break the rules you will be caught and their is no room for forgiveness. Also, if you are diagnosed with a disease, or just simply sick, you must likely will be released into the “elsewhere” world. The Giver is a novel which belongs to the fiction genre. The novel is written by author Lois Lowry, and
The Giver is a well known book that has won the Newbery award for its great and teeth grinding plot, yet has been under questioning in the past for its content like the topic of release to else were. for example when a child is released it is sad, but when someone older but still has their life a head is released it is a disgrace and the name is never used again. Then when an elder is released it is celebrated but then leaves you with a question what is release. Release is a topic that you notice through out the book and is one of the many problems in this dystopia. Of course release goes by a different name one we all know murder.
The government in The Giver is based on keeping information from the members of the Community and using deception to control the society. Jonas is exposed to the truth through receiving the memories from The Giver. The government relies on The Giver and The Receiver to keep the secrets of the old ways and prevent the members of the Community from rebelling. The Elders do not allow the members of the Community to know the truth of the releasings because it would cause the Community to know too much and have too much power. The leaders of the Community trick the members of the Community into thinking that they are able to make decisions, when in reality they are living a life void of free will.
The Perfect Place The society Lowry depicts in The Giver is a utopian society; a perfect world as envisioned by its creators. It has removed fear, pain, famine, illness, conflict, and hatred, all things that most of people would like to eliminate in today’s society. In this utopian community, major problems are rare, only minor problems such as scraping your knee would happen. Even when this would happen there would be medications sent to them.
Jonas’s society is extremely different than the one we live in today. The first difference between The Giver and our society is the number of family members. In the book they can only have two kids, one boy and one girl; however, in America we are free to have as many kids as we would want. The second
The Giver was a story of a boy named Jonas who lived in a false reality similar to Truman’s. Everyone was detained inside an area for live, never having full control of their own lives, because of the same purpose. This purpose was to protect us from the dangers of the real world, and create a haven. Eventually, both Truman and Jonas escaped their haven and returned to the outside world in order to regain their freedom.
This does not apply to any rules at all. Jonas can not apply for a release until he is done being trained by the Giver “She left here that day, left this room, and did not go back to her dwelling. I was notified by the Speaker that she had gone directly to the Chief Elder and asked to be released””Rosemary was the first receiver of memory and got a release after getting the metal pain memories. This event happened after Rosemary had received the memory of the
