Storyboard Text

  • Symbolism
  • In the end of the book ‘The Giver’ the author gives us a description of the tired boy and the baby riding on a sled downward to their last hope. On the last page Jonas was described hearing music which is often symbolism for dying and going to heaven. This is a very popular example in the book and was and is greatly debated.
  • Imagery
  • Jonas is a twelve year old with brown hair in a standard style for Twelves and pale skin. Unlike most people in the community he has pale eyes, the only other people in the Community who have the same pale eyes are The Giver, baby Gabriel, and a female Five.
  • Internal Conflict
  • In the book 'The Giver'every person is assigned to their job for life at age twelve. Our main character Jonas is assigned one of the most special jobs, The Receiver (future Giver). In this job he gets all the memories from the past, even the bad ones.Jonas becomes overwhelmed with the job for many reasons. One of the reasons is the knowing the life he lived and the life everyone else lives is a lie. Jonas feels he is given an ability he feels he doesn't deserve. He wants to share the joy of love and the hurt of pain with the community. This causes him to runaway with the hope of sharing the memories with the community.
