Storyboard Text

  • This shows freedom for the society when the government doesn't always make the best choices because the Giver has to go through all of this pain and sorrow and not having them to be shared with others.pg 154
  • "The worst part of holding the memories is not the pain. It's the loneliness of it. Memories need to be shared."
  • This also supports the theme/theme statement. The society is not allowed to have feelings, but the Giver and the Receiver can. Here, the Giver is sharing his memories with the Receiver Jonas.pg 154
  • "Jonas, you and I are the only ones who have feelings. We've been sharing them now for almost a year."
  • This also shows freedom and supports the theme statement. Because the society knows nothing, the Giver and Jonas have to go through all of this pain with the memories. The government is making these choices for the Giver to go through all this and it is not always right.
  • "Listen to me, Jonas. They can't help it .They know nothing." pg 153
  • Because the government is making the wrong choices, it causes the Giver to have to transfer pain to the Reciever. pg 141
  • "It broke my heart, Jonas, to transfer pain to her. But it was my job. It was what I had to do, the way I've had to do it with you."
  • This also supports the theme statement and the theme. Since the government is making all of the wrong decisions for the society the Giver's life is getting new memories and giving them to the new receiver. The Giver is saying that his whole life is in that room giving and getting memories.
  • "The Giver nodded. And you will. It's my life. It will be yours.... The Giver shook his head. Those are simply the things that I do. My life is here."
  • ".... Only when they are faced with something that they have not experienced before... Sometimes I wish they'd ask for my wisdom more often- there are so many things I could tell them; things I wish they would change."
  • Lastly, this supports the theme and the theme statement. The Giver needs freedom because the government can't make decisions on their own without him if they have not experienced it before. If the Giver could share his wisdom more, then he would speak out and tell he government what they are doing wrong.
