JONAS PHASES WHEN CHANGING FROM A FOLLOWER INTO A REBEL
“Why don’t we have snow, and sleds, and hills... And when did we, in the past?”
In the beginning, he is curious, but not rebellious.
Near the end, he becomes rebellious, trying to get the giver to help him change the community.
“But why can’t everyone have the memories? I think it would seem a little easier if the memories were shared. You and I wouldn’t have to bear so much by ourselves if everybody took a part… When did they decide this? It isn’t fair. Letś change it!!!!!!”
Jonas changes from a careful follower to a rebel in “The Giver” because of his memories transmitted from The Giver. After the ceremony of 12, when they assign him as the receiver, he receives the memories giving him strong and sensitive feelings, making him distant, curious and angry toward the community.
He changes here because he wants him and the giver to change the way of the community and he feels anger toward the elders for deciding this brutal law. This shows that Jonas changes through the memories as he becomes curious, he becomes angry to rebellious.
