The loss of music

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?


Highlights from the socratic seminar

  • 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.”

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.
