In our class, we have discussed the differences between a utopia (an imaginary perfect world where everyone is happy) and a dystopia (an imaginary place where life is extremely difficult and a lot of unfair and immoral things happen). We have also spent some time talking about seven common characteristics of dystopian literature and films. They are:
As you have been reading The Giver, you have hopefully been collecting quotes and specific examples from the novel that fit in these various categories and recording them on the worksheet I gave you. You will find more examples of some of these characteristics in The Giver than others, and you will likely find some more interesting and exciting for you to discuss than others.
TOPIC: In an academic essay, choose TWO of these seven characteristics of dystopian literature, discuss what each one means, and analyze at least two examples of both of these characteristics that you found in the novel.
In effect, you are writing a 4-Paragraph Essay:
Intro: Introduce the concept of dystopia
Body 1: Explain dystopian characteristic #1. Why/how does it affect the thinking or experience of people in a community? Find two examples in The Giver that illustrate (show) this dystopian characteristic and analyze each one, explaining how life in the community is impacted/influenced negatively in these examples.
Body 2: Explain dystopian characteristic #2. Why/how does it affect the thinking or experience of people in a community? Find two examples in The Giver that illustrate (show) this dystopian characteristic and analyze each one, explaining how life in the community is impacted/influenced negatively in these examples.
Conclusion: Give an overview of the essay, reflect on the events you have discussed in your essay, and leave your reader with a question, warning, or advice.
