English II Honors
Theme: The theme for Harrison Bergeron is that there should be equality in the world with rights but not controlled equality that focuses on the appearance or strength of someone. Textual evidence: "I don't care if you're not equal to me for a while." This quote shows how people care about equality but not in the sense that everyone is exactly the same in abilities and looks. This way of equality brings great trouble upon many lives.
Tone: The tone of "Harrison Bergeron" is very mocking/ironic and hopeless. Textual evidence: ""I forget, " she said. "Something real sad on television."" This quote from the story is after Hazel has just witnessed the death of her son on live television and has no reaction. This situation is very ironic because it is the opposite of what you think would've happened and shows there is no hope for this autocratic-type government.
Mood: The mood of "Harrison Bergeron" is very eerie and constrained. Textual evidence: "Diana Moon Glampers loaded the gun again. She aimed it at the musicians and told them they had ten seconds to get their handicaps back on." This quote shows how the government expected everyone to be subservient. Thinking about how this would be in our own lives gives an eerie and weird feeling of how strange it would be.
