Even though Valentine tries to protect Ender from Peter, he is only protected from his brother when Colonel Graff of the International Fleet comes to take Ender away to Battle School. Ender leaves behind Valentine, who loves him, in order to help save the world from the buggers and
The characters in Ender’s Game, most notably Ender, Valentine and Peter, represent different aspects of humans. Ender represents compassion. Ender has a very violent side to himself that the adults in the book bring like to bring out and abuse. Ender recognizes that they do that and hates that side of himself. He tries his best to stay away from hurting people and while talking to his sister Valentine he says, “In the moment when I truly understand my enemy, understand him well enough to defeat him, then in that very moment I also love him (238)”.
Theme Analysis Essay Is the world manipulating you? In Ender’s Game, Orson Scott Card presents his audience with the theme of manipulation which is still relevant today. Ender was faced with manipulation throughout the entire book, just as soldiers are brainwashed throughout their service. In Ender’s Game, there are multiple manipulators who influence Ender and others. Colonel Graff is a prominent manipulator of Ender.
In the movie version of Orson Scott Card's, Ender's Game, many differences compared to the content of the book were presented. Overall, it could be observed that the differences and additions to the book were a bad choice for such a great book because it was incompetent to match the theme, make character relationships well and developed, and its inability to correctly convey the main character, Ender Wiggins feeling as he moves up rank in the International Fleet. The movie presented various pieces of rising action which cheapened the thrill of the climax, and in ways when compared to the book, was somewhat ironic. In the book, there are three main characters: Ender, Valentine, and Peter. However, in the movie the crucial characters were Ender, Valentine, and Petra.
Surprisingly, the people in commands recognize his unfound talents and decided to train him in a school every boy would want to attend. As Ender goes on, he is to be faced with many challenges to come. In Ender's Game, Orson Scott Card suggests that when society is in conflict, many changes will
I have realized that at the start of every chapter so far, there are usually two or more people who are in a higher rank in the International Fleet Command that are talking about Ender. It seems to me that they know everything about Ender and that they are going to use him in some way. I have also realized that discussion they have foreshadows the events of the chapter. I really like how the author put this in because it gives a mysterious setting for the reader and we would probably recognize that it will be very important further on in the
Countless times, Ender does something horrible, but is forgiven for it. Card works hard to generate copious amounts of pity and empathy for Ender throughout the beginning of the book, and then proceeds to reveal what Ender has actually been doing throughout the story. That’s okay though, because Ender is actually innocent and the victim. The entire plot consists of Ender is unknowingly committing murder, abuse, and
The novel Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card reveals many business ideas and themes that were discussed during my business class. Ender uses the themes of core competency, know your customer, and mission through specific example in the novel. In every example Ender could have better reached his goal goal by either avoiding risk, or taking advantage of opportunities. In chapter 7 “Salamander” on page 84 in the book starting with “even as Ender learned how much he did not know” is an example of core competency. Core competency is a concept in management theory that can be defined as a harmonized combination of multiple resources and skills that distinguish a firm in the marketplace.
This interpretation is most important because it tells the reader that not all bad, and traumatic things have to end up so horrible as everyone tends to think; oneself would only have to try to make the best of the particular situation to change themselves for the better. Now it will be explained how Ender decides to tell nothing but the truth. First, Card illustrates how traumatic events can affect a person for the better when Ender
This begins to weaken him both individually and emotionally, and it eventually takes a toll on him. Within Ender, Card shows that isolation and loneliness can destroy an individual through his collapse and his change in personality. After the grueling training and numerous battles that the government puts Ender through, along with all of the isolation and loneliness that he endures, he collapses in the processes both during and after the burdens were put onto him. The first major event that showed Ender enduring some troubles was when he woke up in the middle of the night and found that “there was blood” on his bed, and he had been “gnawing on his own fist” (285) in the middle of the night, in his sleep. This revealed to the reader that the strong and powerful Ender might be beginning to crack and show a
