The Perfect Place The society Lowry depicts in The Giver is a utopian society; a perfect world as envisioned by its creators.

Scott Fitzgerald’s novel, The Great Gatsby, main character Jay Gatsby is blinded by the fantasy of transforming himself into a famous figure of wealth and social status and, as a result, winning over his love, Daisy.

It is not only Zahra that is affected by the city. At some point in the novel, Magd El-Din feels that ‘’everything around him [is] free except him, who [is being] shackled to Alexandria indefinitely’’ (140).
