Highlights from the Socratic Seminar

The Giver


The Giver and Rosemary

  • Rosemary and the Giver had a special bond because they both were able to experience the feeling of love.

    • This then intensified and strengthened their bond as father and daughter.


  • This allowed the Giver to smile whenever he talked about Rosemary feeling love and loss simultaneously.


The Loss of Music

  • Q: If the Giver does not share the memory of music, does this mean that music will be erased from the memories of the future givers?


  • A: The Giver said he was being “selfish” because he did not want to transfer the experience of music because it was how he started “seeing beyond.”


  • Music would then die off and not be understood.

  • Although, Jonas heard music at the end of the novel contradicting this idea.


Rosemary vs. Jonas

  • Q:What if Rosemary had not asked to be released. What would have happened to Jonas?


  • A: Jonas would not understand the concept of color and would live through life questioning the flickers of the color red.

  • Would he still be in succession as receiver?

Memories

Q: If the community had access to memories in a book of records, would they have opinions or emotions?

A: It would take away from sameness and create differences.


A: They would not feel emotion because they would not have a direct connection unless they experienced it themselves.

Example: Jonas actually experienced the situations and was able to develop an emotional response.


Sameness & Communities

  • Q: Is all of the human race affected by sameness or are they different?

  • A: They would all be the same…


  • A: People in other communities are different because Lily’s experience at daycare and her anger with the other children not following her communities rules.
